Over the last few months we’ve been hearing how expensive energy is becoming. Gas is up, oil prices through the roof, but nobody is speaking of the most important form of energy we possess: our own inner energy. While it is important to keep track of current events, it’s even more crucial to keep our own inner equilibrium intact. This article focuses on how to cultivate inner calm and positive energy during tumultuous times.
Take short relaxation breaks from your everyday chores and activities. It’s important to find your breath as often as possible throughout the day. This means to take deep mindful breaths regularly in your waking hours. These short but essential breaks will allow you to release tension and bring attention to the present moment.
Engage at least once a week in a mind-body practice. These practices are designed to calm both the mind and your body, since they are deeply interconnected. Such practices include Tai Chi, yoga, walking meditation, ecstatic dance, Pilates, swimming, and gardening.
Tip #3: It’s important to find time for yourself even in the busiest imaginable schedule. A five to twenty-minute break to do something you care for with no interruption can add volumes of inner calm to your day. Make time to go for a walk, read a book, get a manicure, take a nap, listen to music or take a long hot bath – whatever healthy activity that soothes your spirit.
During times of war and uncertainty, the human mind has a tendency to spin out of control and create unpleasant future scenarios. Cut these thoughts at their bud and recognize them as stories that don’t need to happen. For the most part, 99 out of 100 times, these stories are just fear-driven fantasies that never manifest in real life. Reduce your anxiety by better curating the thoughts you harbor.
