Relax Your Head With These Simple Techniques
Are you aware of your own breathing patterns? If so, you are a step ahead of many others and you may find it easier to learn how to relax and cope with migraines and headaches.
Knowing when there are changes in your breathing patterns can help you relax. For example, changes in emotion often disrupt your breathing patterns. If you are a person who tends to be anxious, you might find yourself holding your breath without even being immediately aware of that change. On the other hand, some people who are depressed tend to sigh and speak in a low-pitched voice as they exhale.
You may not always be aware of your breathing patterns, but now I have mentioned them, perhaps the next time this happens you will be more aware of what is going on and move quickly to the relaxation portion.
How Eating Quality Foods Can Make All the Difference for You
How’s it coming with the holiday shopping and preparations? Hopefully you are taking time to enjoy this time of year and not getting too bogged down in the busyness of it all.
It can be so difficult during the holiday season to stay on track. We have so many social engagements, holiday parties, different events to go to, and even host some of our own. It is often a time for overindulgence, isn’t it?
Of course, it is always wonderful to have those special treats – you know, the ones we seem to save for the holidays! One of my family’s favorites is the Cranberry Bread I make.
In the past, I would just over-indulge and feel lousy about myself, feeling like I had no self-control – or my stomach would feel so bad from having over-consumed.
Many of us live by that counting calorie guide, and of course, we find ourselves way over the limit at this time of year.
Don’t let the holidays stress you out
It’s that time of year when in some areas of the world, Mother Nature “takes a rest” and settles in for a long winter nap! Not so much in other parts of the world, such as my little corner here in Florida, where, apart from a couple of months of cold, we still experience the blossoming of flowers, the beauty of the trees, and the warmth of the more tropical climate. Don’ get me wrong. When we get cold it can be very cold at night and into the 20s.
When this time of year arrives, we turn to the busyness and frenzy of the upcoming holidays. Our calendars fill up with holiday festivities and full days getting ready for the visits and celebrations with family and friends. It can be exhausting with all the preparations – and our minds go into overload as our thoughts churn over with the many things we have to get done.
Dodge Those Germs This Winter With These Helpful Tips.
Once Thanksgiving has passed, we generally tend to think the winter season has arrived.
Winter is typically a refreshing time of year that many eagerly await. Living here in Florida, I can’t say I love the cold, but I do look forward to the cooler days we have during fall and winter. Don’t get me wrong, we often do get down to freezing during the winter months, but I don’t miss the snow and biting cold!
Still, for most, winter does bring the colder temperatures, the beautiful blankets of snow over the landscape, the festivities with family and friends, and the anticipation of a brand new year right around the corner.
Staying on Track During the Holidays.
But to get to our final destination, we must hang on.
They say that success and failure are down the same path. You just need to keep going without giving up to get past the failures and to the success. And that can be hard.
I’m not here to tell you it’ll be easy. It won’t be. But it is possible to stick on that path, as long as you don’t give up.
It is important to determine what is a “mistake” to you.
