Daily Mindfulness Practices to Overcome Stress.

Life at times can be overwhelming… Whether we admit it or not, we all worry. You might worry about the big things, like relationships, health, work, finances, family, or your direction in life. Or it may be small things like your to-do list. It’s about finding the balance that works for you and your lifestyle.

Modern Life is very fast-paced and our mind can be always on the 4th gear most of the day. When we find ourselves over-analyzing, thinking of the past, and anticipating what may happen in the future we forget to be in the moment.

The good news is that you can do something about it as soon as you notice yourself getting lost in worry, having repetitive thoughts, or feeling sensations of tightness or nervousness in your body. Whether you go to a site like https://www.togoweed.co/ and buy cannabis to help relax, you meditate, take up a new hobby, or see friends more, it doesn’t matter- as long as you’re doing something that will help you feel less anxious. Each method will work differently for each person, but there should be a method out there for you.

For example, whereas some people might find that exercise helps them to relax, others might prefer to use CBD products. If the latter option is of interest to you, Flora CBD has shisha that could be useful.

That being said, if you are considering using CBD as part of your mental health toolkit, you might be interested to learn that there are other types of CBD products that are well worth taking a look at. For instance, one of my best friends prefers to use a water soluble cbd isolate. Above all, when using natural products, it is important to do your research to find out what might work best for you.

Want to learn more about the potential health-boosting benefits of CBD products? If you are tempted to invest in some cbd oil ohio is home to some fantastic dispensaries where you can pick up CBD oils in several different strengths.

Accordingly, whilst those are some options, there are so many more online. Additionally, here are three easy and quick mindfulness techniques that I use to get away from anxiety.

  1. A healthy Mindset and meditation

“Each morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most.” ~Buddha

Easier said than done, but small changes in morning and evening can eventually make a huge difference in your outlook on life and mood.

Download a meditation app or my fitness workout DVD (there is a 5-minute relaxation guide to calm the mind).

Like anything in life, a 5 min or 30 meditation guide is the start but you have to remember what your thoughts and actions are during the rest of the day.

Tip. Watch your vocabulary.. Your words become your actions and your actions become your experience.

Even your fit-bit has a Two Minute relax feature that reads your heart rate and instructs you how to slow it down to feel calmer.

  1. Exercising and healthy eating.

Many studies show the benefits of exercise on reducing stress hormones. Simply moving – walking, running, biking, swimming – changes the balance of stress hormones in the brain.

Many of my work out DVDs includes simple 10/15 minute workouts that you can do in the morning, with an enjoyable relaxation session and stretch at the end of the workout.

Studies suggest that by making the body stronger and healthier, exercise enhances your ability to respond to stress, thus thwarting many of its negative effects such as anxiety, depression, and heart disease. Regular exercise also helps flush out the by-products of the body’s stress response – those hundreds of chemicals released in response to a stressful situation – enabling you to return to a normal state quicker. Physical activity also helps improves your sleep!

Eating well and staying hydrated does matter. What and how often you eat affects how you feel, including how well you deal with anxiety. Dehydration, caffeine or sugar crashes, and lack of nutrition can contribute to many NOT fun things like jitters, light-headedness, weakness, lack of focus, and a racing heart. Sound familiar?

Think of your body like a car and food like fuel. Good fuel in = a car that runs smoothly.

Try packing some high protein snacks when on the go or keeping a ‘snack stash’ in your locker*, like:

  • Almonds or other nuts
  • Fruit (bananas, apple)
  • Greek yoghurt
  • Hard boiled egg

Just be aware that a quick boost from a coffee or an energy drink comes at a cost. Anything that goes up must come down…with a CRASH.

  1. Start having fun, be social and laugh.

Laughter has been considered one of the Best Medicines. It is free and is one of the best emotional and physical therapies for anyone under stress.

Laughing releases endorphins into the brain. Endorphins are like the nerve-numbing drug morphine and serve to reduce harmful chemicals in the body that are released by stress.

Releasing stress also immediately puts you in a better mood and improves your attitude so you can feel ready to tackle tough situations.

Laughing puts you in a more positive frame of mind, which will then allow you to see the good in everything.

It’s time to start looking after your body and mind inside and out.

Start today!” Rocco 🙂

5 Tips to Lose Body Fat and gain inner Happiness After 30.

After 30 the metabolism slows down, so you need to be mindful about the amount and quantity of food you eat.

At the same time, the 30s and 40s are typically the years when career and family demands are high, which means less hours for exercise and maintaining a healthy eating plan. With no time to prepare healthy meals, it becomes tough to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Although if you are concerned about nutritious food, you might want to check out online food delivery services like Meal Prep (who are known to offer services like meal prep delivery uk). From choosing a plan type to the food preference, and everything in between, such services can prove beneficial for anyone who desires a nutritious diet but doesn’t have the time to make it himself/herself.

Being healthly at any age, is a lifestyle choice that involves the way you think, eat, shop, and treat your mind and body. It’s about getting the connection between all aspects of your life right.”

Growing up in Australia with Italian parents, I experienced how important good fresh food is and how food is the nucleus that brings family and friends together.

So is it impossible for a men woman in there 30s and 40s to lose body fat? Absolutely not! It just takes smart planning and organisation.

Use these tips specifically tailored to address the unique challenges you face when you try to slim down at 30 and beyond.

 

1.Mindset

I can’t stress enough that when you are trying to achieve any goal, you must change your mindset.

Keep in mind that everyone has a unique natural body shape, and as you become healthier, yours will change differently than someone else’s. The first few weeks you may not see a change on the scale, but that may mean you have reduced body fat while building lean muscle. Remember muscle weighs more than fat. Compare you to you.

 

A good indication to measure your results is to try a pair of your favourite jeans that may be a little tight. After a few weeks, those jeans should fit more comfortably regardless of the number on the scale – that is, if you have followed your cardio and healthy eating plan.

Even if you haven’t followed your new healthy lifestyle to the letter, don’t be too hard on yourself; if you get off the fitness wagon that just means you have to get back on.
2. Plan and reorganise your fridge and pantry.

Reorganise your fridge and pantry, purging guilty-pleasure foods so you don’t fall back into bad habits. Check out my 60 easy recipes from my E cookbook Eat your way Slim.

Try a 5 day alcohol-free detox too. Your body will thank you for it. Alcohol has been implicated as a factor that may hinder your efforts to lose body fat. It suppresses fat oxidation, but mainly, alcohol adds calories into your diet, messes with your hormones and can stimulate appetite, leading to even more calories consumed.

 

3. Control your portion size?

Use a smaller dinner or snack plate so you’re likely to eat less even if you fill your plate to capacity.

Eating out

Order entrée-sized meals with a side of salad or vegetables, and eat those first to fill you up.

Avoid ‘upsizing’ your meal (at fast food outlets, for example).Share a dessert with a friend or family member, or better still, avoid dessert altogether.

When NOT to go food shopping.

Avoid shopping when you are hungry. You may find foods in your trolley that you wouldn’t normally buy.

 

4. Learn to manage stress.

Our 30s may be the most stressful time in your life. Babies, job stress, and relationship issues can keep you awake at night. But those challenges can cause problems if they are not addressed. Seek professional help if needed. “so balance in lifestyle is key.”

 

Busy Lifestyle Tip

These days, mediation guides can be obtained from your smartphone or iPad via YouTube. Start with 5 days, doing a mindfulness relaxation every morning and evening.

 

5. Choose Exercise you enjoy.

Find a supporting gym or activity buddy who will provide motivation as well as companionship. They can remind you of your goals when you’re feeling down.
