How to De-Stress: Take Time Each Day in Stillness

Posted on by admin

The ability to de-stress each day is an important ingredient in living a richer and more fulfilling life.  But, most people find de-stressing a real challenge.  There is so much to do and so little time.  Consequently, the thought of de-stressing seems more like a luxury than a necessity.

But, in reality it is a necessity.  If you don’t de-stress regularly, you may find yourself unable to be at your best, to be effective, and to be creative.  At worst, you will find yourself ineffective, exhausted and unwell.

Think of yourself as a battery.  If a battery goes low, it doesn’t perform.  So, in order to enjoy life to the fullest, to sustain high performance and to be resilient, charge your battery each and every day.

One of the most effective and simplest ways of doing this is to “take time each day in stillness”.  It doesn’t have to be a great deal of time.  If you take 5-10 minutes of complete stillness each day, you will experience an enormous difference in your life.  You may wish to sit on a park bench or sit in your garden.  The outdoors can be very energizing.  But that may not always be possible.  You may wish to be indoors and in stillness admire something of beauty, like a flower, or a piece of art.  Or you may wish to just close your eyes wherever you are and simply be still.

You will notice that the more you practice stillness the more you will experience the calm that is within all of us.  With greater practice you will begin to hear what your heart wants to tell you.  Those gentle whispers that are so important for our well-being are only heard in stillness.
