Hey everyone, today is the first Sanctuary Saturday blog. Sanctuary means many things, safety, relaxation, bliss, serenity and much more. In this post I am going to talk about the relaxation.
We live in such a busy stressful world with more and more people suffering from mental breakdowns, depression and other stress related illnesses. We need to make time to relax and destress.
We live such busy lives that we are always rushing and don't have time to our selves for rest and relaxation. Here is a quick tip I use to relax and stay sane:-
Sit in a comfortable chair or lie down on your bed. Either place our hands by your sides or rested on your stomach. Close your eyes. Breath in for 5 seconds, hold your breath for 5 seconds then breath out for 5 seconds. Repeat the cycle for 3 minutes or until you feel the relaxing effects of controlled breathing.
I know it sounds silly but it works!
Take care x
