Mind full of…Wednesday

It’s Wednesday. The ‘most stressful day of the week’. Ouch!

Stress can be a real killer, in the workplace and in our day to day lives.

“If you can spend a perfectly useless afternoon in a perfectly useless manner, you have learned how to live,” – said Lin Yutang. Wanna try it? 🙂

Whether you’re dealing with a job that puts you under the pressure, or face struggles in your life or relationships that leave you in a state of constant worry – try to ‘unplug your brain’. For 1- 3 minutes is enough. 

I call it “stay focused, but be idle”. You are in presence, you are calm, you are enjoying that you are calm. Your body is slowing down. You are in peace. You are a human, and you are a soul.

The usual breathing rate in an adult is 12 to 16 breaths per minute at rest. Sometimes it can be even 7-8 (depends on).

Practice of the day: do it for 1-or 2 min only.

Breathe in – count to 6
Hold your breath – count 2
Breathe out – count to 8

Thats all 🙂 Hugs

    1. Hahahaha 😁 I’ve been Alligator on Monday, it wasn’t that fun…so I’ll try to stay princess the rest of the week. Btw, mind-breathing (even a minute) time to time – is a good thing. Bcz in that moment we r just counting..& keeping our “worry” heads “empty” :))

      1. One thing I have ‘added’ to my breathing, is to see in my minds eye (I guess) the number as I count out the inhale-hold-and exhale!
        It seems to diminish the anxiety quicker for me. 🙂
        Thank you!
