If you’re like me the thought of meditating seems repulsive (like a forced torture!). But there are really easy relaxation techniques to stop that daily mind chatter and over thinking. Techniques that give your mind a little holiday and bring a sense of clarity, peace and calmness into your daily life.
Try gazing into a candle flame (even for a few minutes), relaxing and listening to gentle or uplifting instrumental music through earphones, or sitting still and focusing your energy going into your hands (they may start to tingle) and then into your body.
Walking barefoot on the shoreline is another, sitting or lying down at a beautiful nature spot (one you’re drawn to energetically).
Anyone know of any other easy techniques?
“When you’re happy you enjoy the music,
when you’re sad you understand the lyrics.”
~ Frank Ocean
I often find myself humming some random tune from the past that seems to somewhat magically pop into my head. When I stop what I’m doing and think about the words or google the lyrics they always relate to what I’m feeling or experiencing emotionally at that moment in time.
I love that… it’s magic
I love the healing power of words and music.
Like everything in life there is light and dark, there is healing music and destructive music.
Next time you find some song stuck in your head, check out the lyrics – you may be surprised and the words may just soothe your soul :o)
Here’s some visual gorgeousness in the form of lyrics, typography and art from The Beatles
Three of their inspired song lyrics have been healing and stuck in my head in the past..
‘Let It Be’
‘Here Comes The Sun’
