Why do most people accumulate stress and suffer?
Many people accumulate stress and suffer in mind, body and relationships (1). They may not be aware that stress is the root cause of their physical, mental or relationship problems. Or they know the cause is stress but don’t know any simple beginner’s technique that they can use right away to get relief. More….
I found from my personal experience and that of my clients, that anyone can understand and practice the simple techniques presented below. When you practice them, you will stop collecting more stress. When the practice becomes a habit, the accumulated stress will dissolve gradually. More….
LEVEL I : Relax and ‘enjoy good sleep’
Practice at bed time to get good sleep: The baby level of practice is to ‘focus on breathing’ when you are lying on the bed and wish to sleep (2). By entering the sleep state in this manner, your mind and body will begin to heal. When you wake up in the morning, you will feel much better than before. More….
Practice on ‘Waking up’ to tune the mind and body: After a few weeks of practicing at bed time, you can advance to the next step. ‘Focus on breathing’ immediately on waking up but still lying on the bed, eyes closed (3). More….
LEVEL II: Expand breath awareness into the ‘daytime’ activities
Daytime practice: At this level, you ’focus on breathing’ for a few seconds, intermittently, throughout the day – sitting, standing, walking, waiting, working at home or outside (4). You will then gain full control over your stress.
Stretching and moving: When you feel the relaxation by practicing before sleep and on waking up, and feel motivated, gently stretch and move your body, maintaining the focus on breathing (5). This releases the stresses locked up all over the body, head to toes and fingers. Within an year, you will feel like your body and mind have been upgraded! Enjoy this happy change.
Level III: Meditate to reshape your body and mind
When you feel ambitious, practice meditation, sitting erect and still, ‘focusing on breathing’ (6). When meditation becomes a part of your daily routine, like brushing the teeth, chronic concerns about your mind and body will gradually fade away. You will be calm, confident and smiling!
A journey of thousand miles begins with the first step.
Begin your journey tonight, by 'focusing on breathing'when you sleep!
I promise you will enjoy the unique experience.
