3 WAYS TO FEEL MORE BALANCED EVERY DAY
1. Start the day with water. Water is a link back to the womb, when you were weightless, supported, peaceful. The pulse of water upon our skin as we shower is a crucial wake-up call.
2. Give yourself a pat on the back. Set aside 10 minutes every evening to think about what you achieved that day. At the week’s end, remember those small steps of progress.
3. Set a time to switch off and do one thing that relaxes you before bed – a good novel or an oil-scented bath. Studies show nothing is moe effective in being able to reset and optimize our body’s clock.
3 WAYS TO STAY COOL WHEN TRIGGERED
1. Know yourself
Identify your values and look out for situations where they are stepped on, so you can practice ways to deal with them.
2. Pre-empt your reaction by recognizing your physical warning signs, such as speeding heart rate or fists clenching, so you can take control.
3. Calm yourself down
Deep breathing delivers more oxygen to our brain. This helps us to calm down, so we can take a break from the stress and give our brain time to engage and plan our responses.
