1 Fun Stress Relief Technique – “Learn how to breathe like a PRO – Breathe like a BABY!”

1 Fun Stress Relief Technique – “Learn how to breathe like a PRO – Breathe like a BABY!” – from MindYourOwnWellness.com

 

“Breathe like a PRO! Breathe like a BABY – Through Your Diaphragm!”

1.       Sit down on a comfortable chair

2.      Put both feet on the ground and straighten your back (for best results)

3.      Lower your chin a little, so that you can see your stomach

4.      Simply place your LEFT hand on your CHEST and RIGHT hand on your STOMACH.

5.      Exhale slowly with your lips almost shut and make the “SSS…” sound as long as you can (Without feeling uncomfortable or out of breath)

6.      Then inhale fully and see which hand rises

7.      If your RIGHT hand rises more than your LEFT hand, you are mostly breathing through your diaphragm – Good for you!

8.      But, if your LEFT hand or chest rises more than your RIGHT hand, you are mostly breathing through your lungs and not your diaphragm; which is not as good for you because breaths taken in through lungs only, are usually short and shallow. In other words, you are not giving your body as much oxygen as it needs. Once your breaths become shorter and shorter, you are likely to experience a headache, become tired, or stressed.

How do you learn to breathe through your diaphragm? Practice! Repeat steps 1 – 6 until you start seeing your RIGHT hand rising and your stomach expanding. You will get it soon. Both you and I were born with this talent, however once our lungs were fully developed, we started to breathe mostly through our lungs instead of our diaphragms. All we need to do is relearn the proper breathing technique.

Remind yourself regularly to breathe through your diaphragm until it becomes your second nature, especially when you are caught in stressful situations.

Best Wishes To You & Your Family,

Food Temptation – Late At Night

Food Temptation – Late At Night

(Page 85 of Mind Your Own Wellness – Turning Thoughts Into Reality)

Have you ever noticed what happens to your stomach from about 10:00 at night until about 2:00 in the morning?

Do you usually feel like eating something during that period? Many of us have heard of midnight snacks! Have you also noticed the change in advertisements on TV around that time? They are for deep-fried meals, chocolate, delicious burgers, sausage, and egg meals. They start to pop out more to tell you what to eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for tomorrow.

Once you are aware of what those advertisements are doing to your thoughts (which is to ask you to eat more unhealthy food than you need, the next day), it will be harder for your Inner Junky (Junk Food) Voice to play with what you will be eating tomorrow. You will have better control over what is really good and healthy for you the next day. Just stick to your game plan to eat right, unless it is your take-a-break day.

If you really want to stay healthy, you can. Be patient and persistent and you will soon feel a change. You will feel lighter and breath deeper, move faster, and your confidence level will increase, naturally. Before you know it, you will be amazed by the changes that your new choices have made in your life.

3 Simple Tips – Beware of Junk Food – On Sale!

3 Simple Tips: Beware Of Junk Food – On Sale!

Imagine you are at the grocery store and see a sign for a super sale on junk food. Remember that it might look like a good deal, but buying these foods will have a negative effect on your health. For example:

1)      Now bigger: 30% more unhealthy food for the same price! True meaning: It is time to put on more weight.

2)      Buy 1 get 1 half off! True meaning: Start blocking your arteries!

3)      Buy 2 bags of chips for the price of 1! True meaning: Since your heart is still pumping, let’s weaken it!

Buying junk food on sale basically means adding fat to your body and adding emotional pain to your life. Let us face the facts! The more junk food you buy, the more you or your family will eat it. Avoid junk food sales and start taking control of your health. Minimize your junk food intake if possible or buy the smallest size available.

Wish You & Your Family The Very Best,
