How To Achieve A Great Physical And Mental Balance

Achieving physical and mental wellness is something most of us work on throughout the year, but with the pressures of daily life and the stress they can bring, it’s not always possible to feel good everyday. It’s important to try, however, as it can boost your mood, your positivity, and your overall wellbeing.

One of the best ways to achieve wellness is to exercise everyday, but it can be hard for many people to find the time. Working long hours, making sure the kids are taken care of, and keeping up with household demands all require energy and time, making it difficult to find either when it comes to working out. However, there are some simple ways you can work in some time for yourself, which can boost both your physical and your mental health.

Here are a few of the best ways to find balance and feel better.

Practice yoga

Yoga is one of the best ways to find personal balance between physical and mental health because it combines physical activity with mindfulness, which allows you to focus on the present moment. Yoga is about breathing, stretching, and paying attention to your body’s cues, all of which can help you in daily life. Also, it’s something you can either do alone or with a friend, depending on your mood. Consider taking it a step further and adding meditation to your yoga ritual. Meditation and yoga go hand in hand as a way to practice mindfulness and stress reduction. Try setting up a specific space in your home free from distractions. A spare bedroom can be the perfect spot for a home gym where you can practice yoga.

Get some good sleep

The amount of sleep you get every night can really affect your mood, energy level, and overall well-being, so it’s important to make sure you’re getting adequate rest. Get into a bedtime routine that relaxes you, such as taking a hot shower, using lavender lotion, or turning off all screens an hour before you’re ready to go to sleep. Try to go to bed at the same time every night, and silence your phone so the notifications won’t wake you.

However, while exercising and following a proper sleep schedule can help you get plenty of quality rest, they can only do so much. Sometimes, despite your best efforts, sleep will elude you, and it’s probably the result of a poor mattress. If it’s been at least five years since you purchased one, it might be time to consider investing in a new mattress. When you decide it’s finally time to take the plunge, ensure you’re getting a mattress that supports proper spine alignment, which can help feel rested and energized when it’s time to rise in the morning.

Reduce your stress

Stress can leave you feeling tired, overwhelmed, and anxious and can take away from your job performance or enjoyment of the things you once loved. Making an effort to reduce your stress can help you stay positive and feel better. Some ways you can do this include practicing a hobby you enjoy, spending time with your loved ones, getting organized to make daily life easier, and eliminating clutter in your home (which can take a toll on your mental health).

Eat right

Eating well-balanced meals and mixing fresh fruits and veggies into your routine can help you feel better in just about every way. Not only will you get the benefit of the vitamins from all those great foods, you’ll also stay fit and have more energy to tackle anything that will come your way. If you find yourself running to the vending machine on your break at work, start bringing resealable baggies full of whole-grain pretzels, carrot sticks, nuts, and dried fruit to keep in your desk.

Get social

Getting social can help boost your self-esteem and keep you active, so consider joining a club or group where you can spend time with others while doing something you enjoy. Or, start your own group in your community, such as a running club that meets once a week.

Achieving physical and mental balance may not be overly easy, but it doesn’t need to be stressful, either. Take your time finding things you enjoy and learning new routines. Don’t be hard on yourself if you backslide a bit, especially in the beginning; try to be patient and lean on your friends and family for support.

Imagine if there was a way to IMMUNIZE yourself from NEGATIVITY so that no matter what is happening AROUND YOU, you are able to maintain a state of IMPERTURBABILITY, where NOTHING can affect you.

So if your partner is in a bad mood, your child throws a tantrum, or your client is blaming YOU for THEIR problems, you just SMILE and are non-engaged EMOTIONALLY, transmuting that energy IMMEDIATELY and maintaining your HIGH FREQUENCY and LOVING state.

In YOUR LIFE, negativity is really the ONLY thing holding you back from manifesting your ULTIMATE reality. The REASON is because your FREQUENCY is controlled by the frequency that your DNA vibrates and oscillates at.

So for example, if your DNA is vibrating and oscillating at 150 Ghz, and then you start believing a NEGATIVE THOUGHT about yourself, you lower your frequency to say, 70 Ghz.

Since everything that shows up in your REALITY is based on frequency RESONANCE, now instead of attracting people, places, times, things, and events that resonate with 150 Ghz, you attract a grid that resonates with 70 Ghz.

This could mean you attract an ACCIDENT, an ARGUMENT with someone randomly, a FINANCIAL LOSS, or even END A RELATIONSHIP because your SHADOW SELF becomes active.

Do you realize that most of the planet is fast asleep and totally unconscious?

Do you realize that in most humans, their DNA is vibrating only about 150 Ghz.  This is WHY they are SO UNCONSCIOUS and IT IS ALSO WHY THEY are STUCK in FEAR, Poverty, Lack, Limitation and above all , IT IS WHY THEY GET SICK and OLD…and are very often, just repeating the same patterns of living over and over and over and over again…

Are YOU are so needed!  You Ascend, accelerate, and you make Miracles!
You can REALIZE that the only true change comes from WITHIN and has to do with the ENERGY FREQUENCY at which your DNA vibrates and oscillates and in so realizing, Live in your Higher Frequency. TAKE ACTION and CREATE THE WORLD YOU WISH TO BE LIVING IN.

It IS that simple.

Better Sleep Habits Can Mean Better Health for Your Mind

Better Sleep Habits Can Mean Better Health for Your Mind

Did you know your mental health hinges on how well you slumber? Believe it or not, your mind’s wellness and your sleep habits go hand in hand. If you’re not getting a good night’s sleep, try these important tips to improve your mental health and quality of life.

 

How much is enough? A number of factors weigh into how much sleep you need in order to stay healthy. Your lifestyle, genetics and age can impact your requirements, but according to VeryWellFit, if you are an average, healthy adult, it’s safe to say you need between 7 and 9 hours of sleep every night. If you’re staying up late to catch the news and getting up early to catch a ride to work, chances are you’re not getting enough sleep. Some experts suggest most of us don’t recognize our sleep deprivation, but your body is probably sending you signals you could use more shuteye, such as grogginess during the day or an inability to perform well without caffeine.

 

Damage from too little sleep. Getting insufficient sleep is bad for your mental health. Newsweek cites studies showing we become moody without enough sleep, losing the ability to properly regulate our emotions and tending toward negative thought patterns. Living on too little sleep increases the risk for anxiety and depression, and can trigger more dramatic negative mood swings in those with mental health conditions such as bipolar disorder. Some experts feel lack of sleep negatively impacts our ability to think clearly, to drive safely, and to remember new information.

 

Smart strategies. In our busy, on-the-go world, sleep may sound like a luxury, but it’s clear your mind is healthier with better sleep. You can improve your slumber with a handful of smart strategies. Start by scheduling regular times for going to bed at night and getting up in the morning. Stick with your schedule, even on weekends, to ensure higher sleep quality. Also perform a routine each evening in preparation for falling asleep. It tells your mind and body sleep is coming and can help you fall asleep more quickly. One suggestion is to plan some soothing rituals, such as sipping an herbal tea and meditating.

 

Set your environment. A proper sleeping environment is a key to getting more shuteye. Keep your bedroom free of distractions, especially lights and electronic devices. Also consider your bed and whether you awaken sore or groggy in the mornings. Do you have a comfortable mattress suited for your body and sleep type? If you don’t, it’s time to invest in your mental health by buying a new mattress. Do your research and read reviews of the best mattresses on the market today. Whether you have back pain, sleep on your stomach or side, are a hot sleeper, or have another bedtime quirk, there’s a mattress that’s best suited for you.

 

Change up your day. What you do during the daytime can impact your ability to sleep at night. Healthline explains if we aren’t getting sufficient sunlight or exposure to a similar bright environment, the end result can be insomnia. Along those same lines, blue lighting from electronics, such as phones, televisions and computer screens late in the day can trigger an unhealthy pattern. Avoid using gadgets at night, and spend time in the sun during the day for the best results. Getting more exercise can help you sleep better, too, although you should avoid physical activity late in the day when your body needs to unwind. And even if you’re tired, taking a nap during the day can actually make it harder for you to sleep well at night.

 

Better sleep, better mind. Your mind’s health is linked with your sleep habits. Set a routine, create a sleep-friendly environment, and avoid activities that inhibit good sleep. Getting a good night’s sleep can help you be your best.

Cold-Weather Workout Tips: How To Stay Fit Indoors

Cold-weather workouts can be a pain, and if you live in certain areas of the country, they can be dangerous or nearly impossible. When winter rolls in and brings wind chill factors and snow, there are few among us who feel like going for a run. If you don’t have the extra money to sign up for a costly gym membership, what do you do?

There are several options and they can all be done from the warmth and safety of your home. The key is to think outside the box a little and turn various activities into a chance to get your heart rate up. Change things up so that you won’t get bored and involve your dog or your children in order to stay motivated. It’s important to include some fun into the workout.

Daily exercise is important for everyone, and when you can’t get outside, getting creative at home will help you build a routine you can do at any time.

 

Get active with your dog

Dogs love activity, and since winter weather affects them, too, it’s a good idea to get them involved in your workout. Think of some ways you can get up and get moving with your pup. For instance, you might create an “obstacle course” throughout your home and run it with your pet, or you can play a spirited game of tug-of-war. Turning a workout into playtime benefits both you and your pet, and it’s something you can do everyday that won’t leave you bored to death.

 

Create your own exercise class

 Find an area of your home that will give you some space to move around and create your own workout class. Set a goal to see how many reps you can do each of jumping jacks, push-ups, pull-ups, squat thrusts and sit-ups and push yourself a little further each time to up the number. You might be surprised at how many you can do.

 

Make a garage gym

You can develop your own garage gym with a few simple tools, such as a stability ball, a yoga mat, resistance bands and some free weights or kettlebells. Think about the items that would be ideal for your workout routines. Having your own gym will allow you to stay on track with your workouts and help keep you motivated.

 

Use chores to your advantage

Cleaning and performing other household chores can be a huge advantage when you need a quick workout. Vacuuming, running up and down the stairs, and mopping are great ways to get your heart rate up and take care of things around the house at the same time.

 

Shake it

Love to dance? Push back the coffee table, put on some music you love and get to shakin’! This is a great way to get your heart rate up in a way that doesn’t feel like exercise at all. Dancing can involve your entire body and all the major muscle groups, so don’t be shy.

 

Don’t be afraid to get creative with your home workouts. It doesn’t matter what you do as long as it gets your heart rate up for at least 20-30 minutes per day. Combined with a well-balanced diet and adequate rest, these workouts will help you feel better and maybe even lose a bit of weight.
