Yoga Deep breathing is a great way to cut the stress. Practicing breathing in Yoga, and during exercise engraves proper breathing on our beings. Then, when we are faced with stressful situations, we can easily fall into proper breathing to help us deal with the stress.414
Breathe in and out using the diaphragm, breathing through your nose.
Working nights and getting home late, I sometimes find it hard to sleep. I've taken to putting my yoga mat out next to my bed before I go to work. When I get home, instead of sitting on the couch watching TV until I'm tired enough to sleep, I get in a quick yoga session. Stretches me out, relaxes me after a long night, and gets me ready to sleep.
My favorite Yoga DVD's to do are PM Yoga and Power Yoga for Flexibility, both available from Gaiam, featuring Rodney Yee.
STOP. DROP. AND ROLL. FROM A YOGA STAND POINT....STOP, REMOVE YOURSELF FROM THE NEGATIVE SITUATION. DROP, YOUR SHOULDERS AND CHIN TO YOUR CHEST, DEEP BREATHE. AND ROLL YOUR SHOULDERS FORWARD SLOWLY WHILE YOU DEEP BREATHE.
AND FOCUS ON CONFRONTING OTHERS WITH A POSITIVE ATTITUDE!
STOP, DROP AND ROLL IS WHAT YOU LEARN TO DO, IF YOU ARE ON FIRE. WELL BEING IN A NEGATIVE CONFRONTATION THERE ISN'T MUCH DIFFERENCE! PUT OUT THE FIRE, RELAX AND DEEP BREATHE! THE BREATHE OF LIFE WILL HEAL YOUR MIND!
