Drained? Out of energy? Your work and routine life make you feel overwhelmed? Getting caught up in things beyond your control stresses you out…
If you’d like to stay calm and cool in stressful situations, put the following 8 steps into practice:
Take a long, slow breath in through your nose, first filling your lower lungs, then your upper lungs; Hold your breath to the count of "three."; Exhale slowly through pursed lips, while you relax the muscles in your face, jaw, shoulders, and stomach.
2. Loosen up Perform a quick body scan to identify any areas that are tight or tense. Gently touch or massage any of your body parts that are under tension to encourage total relaxation.
3. Let go Meditate on the source of your problem, how you are overreacting, and just drop that burden off your shoulders for a while.
4. Split your goals Instead of focusing on the end result SPLIT IT INTO SEVERAL MINI-GOALS SO YOU’LL HAVE SEVERAL CAUSES FOR CELEBRATION.
5. Give yourself Positive Feedback Stop focusing on the negative thoughts. Giving yourself regular positive feedback will help you grow patience, stay encouraged, and find more joy in the process of achieving your goals.
BODY POSTURE FOR HANDWRITING
One way to keep your brain sharp is WRITING BY HAND. You will start noticing your handwriting and wanting to mold it and develop it. But first, before practicing and correcting your letters note that posture, as always, is very important also for the task at hand. Have a look:
Have you seen the news lately? ;)
STAND AND WALK LIKE IF YOU WERE ROYALTY
Keep in Mind: People read your body language instinctively.
Work that: Stand and walk like if you were royalty. Let others look up to you and realize how valuable you are the minute you walk in the room.
Keep in Mind
1. Stand Straight Always Show up your chest. Straighten up your back from bottom to top, from hips to shoulders. Be inspired by the posture of kings and queens. Imagine you are wearing a crown and do not let it fall off your head. Keep that in mind and you'll see that this exercise will help you improve the way you look, your confidence and self esteem.
2. Keep your shoulders back Keep your shoulders back but relaxed. Allowing your shoulders to slouch forward shortens chest muscles, reducing flexibility. Roll your shoulders back and hold them straight without straining them too far back. If your abdomen pushes forward when you pull your shoulders back, you have pulled them back too far.
3 Quick tips to a healthier back
Don’t slouch when standing or sitting. When standing, keep your weight balanced on your feet. Your back supports weight most easily when curvature is reduced.
Sit in a chair with good lumbar support and proper position and height for the task. Keep your shoulders back. Switch sitting positions often and periodically walk around the office or gently stretch muscles to relieve tension. A pillow or rolled-up towel placed behind the small of your back can provide some lumbar support. If you must sit for a long period of time, rest your feet on a low stool or a stack of books.
Maintain proper nutrition and diet to reduce and prevent excessive weight, especially weight around the waistline that taxes lower back muscles. A diet with sufficient daily intake of calcium, phosphorus, and vitamin D helps to promote new bone growth.
it's not proper to stand like that...
Correct behavior should be spontaneous, without an extravagant manner.
Standing, one should not rest all the weight of the body on one leg, leaving the other hanging. It is not proper to lean on a wall, or piece of furniture. It would look even worse if you bend one leg and place the sole of the shoe against the wall, or rest a knee on a bench or chair.
The feet should be together, at a slightly open angle, and the knees almost together. One of the arms should hang naturally, while the other is slightly bent next to the body. Do not trace designs on the ground with the tip of your foot - it doesn't look good.
During a conversation, do not swing backward or forward on your feet, like a pendulum.
This advice may sound archaic - but don't you think that royalty always look so elegant? I wonder why...
