One of the most important plagues of this century is derived from the life we think we should lead: a life “at high speed”. This expanding plague is called stress. Ever experienced it? Ever wondered how to get rid of it? Of course, you have! Everybody has! Today, I’ve decided to come to your aid and give you anti-stress tips to rid yourself from these tensions.
How to manage your stress
The anti-stress process I’m giving you here must strictly be followed by for 9 days. It should be enough for you to better manage your stress and feel better, if you put it into practice with seriousness. To that end, follow the 7 tips offered here.
If circumstances prevent you from diligently applying these tips, put them into practice for 9 more days or even 18 more days if needed!
Although, the Guardian of Angels keeps a watch, you must put in effort to relieve yourself of any stress you are facing. Unless, you yourself put in effort, the Guardian of Angels will not see any reason to help you either. As the saying goes “God helps those who help themselves”.
Anti-stress tip #1: learn to breathe
Seems very easy to do, but try it and you will realize the issues that can be faced. Practice it every morning when you wake up in the following way:
- Breathe deeply through your nose,
- Hold your breath for a few seconds and expel it sharply.
Repeat this exercise at least three times in a row.
Perform this exercise every time anxiety tries to gain the upper hand. You will feel stress-relieved as if a huge burden has been taken off from your shoulders. In all of this, do not forget that the Guardian of Angels is always on your side to help you as well.
Anti-stress tip #2: commune with yourself and sleep
Every night, before you go to sleep, you can say a short prayer (whatever it may be) to be in touch (or reestablish contact) with the Guardian of Angels.
Little by little, you will sleep better and spend your nights in peace. Sleep, being a major source of accessing harmony, is a great ally when it comes to combating stress.
Anti-stress tip #3: follow nature’s rhythm
Wake up when the daylight breaks and go to sleep when night has fallen as much as you can (summer holidays are perfect for such a practice).
This way, you will be in harmony with the rhythm of Mother Earth. Your metabolism will be boosted and it will make the positive energy of Nature surround you.
Anti-stress tip #4: have a healthy diet
Get rid of everything (stimulants such as alcohol, coffee, tea, etc.) that could be harmful to your inner body(at least during this 9-day period).
Choose vegetables, fruits, and fish over meat products.
The suffering of the animals that were killed to be eaten can generate a significant and unconscious stress.
Anti-stress tip #5: exercise
Thoughts that make you obsesses over something, are a misery. The best way to get rid of them is to exercise!
A long daily walk, for instance, will enable you to forget about your concerns. This will make inner peace prevail in you and lower your level of stress, if not completely rid you of it. Activities related to sports will provide you satisfactory pleasure as well!
Anti-stress tip #6: practice spiritual mastication
A Great Sage who taught me a lot used to tell me:
“You must spiritualize matter and materialize the mind”.
Rather than relentlessly chewing over problems, get into the following habit:
- When you eat, chew what you eat at length (to spiritualize it)
- Make the spirit descend on you by listening to something spiritual or by reading a spiritual book at the same time (this way, you will materialize the spirit).
This is what monks have been doing for centuries when they listen to prayers while they eat; and it is what the Guardian of Angels guides us to do too!
Anti-stress tip #7: connect with others on a spiritual level
Finally, use your heart: have positive thoughts, talk, and act in a positive way.
And when you can listen to others, listen to them with your heart! This way, you will create a real “alchemy” through which what you give will be returned to you a hundredfold, engendering the best conditions possible for inner Peace and Serenity to settle.
