How to calm yourself, according to life coaching principles

Published on October 31st, 2016 - Updated June 7, 2017 No Comments

Unfortunately, sources of stress are all around us, and more often than not, they find their way to trouble our minds and consequently, our physical health. Everyone can take certain amount of stress and manage their life around it, but when it comes a time that you simply feel tired, in a way that sleep doesn’t help because your soul is tired, it’s time to pause everything, spend some alone time and make certain changes that would make your life better and your mind calmer.

Close your eyes and breathe

You don’t have to be an expert in meditation in order for this technique to work. Simply find a place and time where and when no one will disturb you, sit in the most comfortable position, close your eyes, breathe and think. According to life coach Rebecca Ryan, you can use simple breathing tips to help you relax easier.  Once you feel relaxed enough, think deeply about everything and everyone in your life, which brings us to the next step.

Think about your life carefully

Once you reach the above-mentioned level of relaxation, you’ll be able to calmly and thoroughly assess many different aspects of your life. Use this opportunity to pinpoint things and people that make your life better as well as their negative counterparts. This is very important. Finding the things and people that put you down in your life’s journey will enable you to analyze situations that cause negativity and stress. In some cases, the solution might involve letting go, but in other, you might surprise yourself with the ability to decide that it’s time to change some things and/or lead some serious conversations that would finally put an end to negativity and problems.

Do something nice for yourself

Instead of just spending your free time watching TV, do something nice and relaxing for yourself. For example, some life coaches believe that a long and soothing bath is perfect to calm both the body and mind. In that respect, use the toiletries with the scent that is most appealing to you, light up some candles, play the music that you love and allow yourself to enjoy this pampering moment. It will leave you feeling refreshed, tranquil and content.

Rediscover nature

All life coaches suggest that you find some time in your busy week to reconnect with nature. The greenery and fresh air have the miraculous ability to clear the mind and reduce the influence of stress. You can start with small walks and visits to the nearby parks where you’ll take a moment to indulge in your surroundings, but on days when you have more free time, you can take easily inflatable water lounges with you, and lie down on a soft surface near the lake, or make a little picnic trip all for yourself.

Say yes to socializing

People are social beings and you definitely need more personal social contact compared to the work related one. Therefore, don’t be afraid to be the first one to call your friends and definitely don’t refuse offers to go out for petty reasons such as feeling lazy, or finding the weather unpleasant to leave the home. Constant social contact with people you hold dear will act as an effective calming tool even if you’re not aware of it.

Eat what feels right

More often than not, a lot of moodiness and feelings of stress occur due to the improper diet. In general, eating a lot of fruits and veggies will have a positive effect on your nerves. Still, there’s no rule that explicitly states what every individual should consume. Listen to your body and choose foods that make you feel energized and happy.

Life coaching principles are nothing unheard of, but it’s the people’s strength of will and ability to embrace changes that can make the transformation possible or impossible. In today’s society, it’s fairly difficult to find time for yourself, but in order to achieve the sense of calmness, you need to love yourself enough and allow yourself to practice mindfulness. There’s nothing wrong with taking care of your own mind, body and soul.

Lisa Vaughan from Baltimore, MD... I use all in the facial system (except haven't tried, but just ordered a clay mask) including the serums and creams. The Lavender products work wonderfully for my--- middle aged skin. This system is by far superior to any I have used prior! I chose Barista, as it's my favorite, but close second is the toner. My face truly thanks you, byvalenti~... Read More Testimonials...
