In order to cope with all this information, we need to slow down and take stock. If we rush about at a vast pace, either physically, mentally, emotionally or even spiritually, we will hit a breakdown point. Now more than ever, we need to become aware of all that we do. We need to learn how to be present in this moment rather than rushing on to the next great plan, or inspiration that we might have. We are ‘human beings’ not ‘human doings’. The clue is in the name!
This course simply encourages you to look at yourself first and see where you possibly need to change, become more mindful, relax, move more etc. You can then use these techniques on yourself each day. This course is aimed at everyone. Everyone can practice these techniques safely.
It has been said that the Breath is the link between the body and the mind. Once the breath is under control and relaxed, then this in turn relaxes and calms the mind. This then also relaxes and releases tensions from the body.
When we hold our breath unintentionally, this causes stress and tension in the body. It also tenses us if our breathing is quick and panicky. The over energy or build up of energy in our body/head can then cause us to have stress and anxiety.
Or, if our breathing is sluggish and lacks fullness then this can cause us a drop-in mood, and after a period of time, possible low mood or depression (it can also cause us fatigue and tiredness).
Learning some breathing techniques can help your whole being when you need it most, but also helps to keep a health balanced mind every day.
