In this very moment I´m sitting on the bus on my way to our cottage on the country side, It´s a beautiful place just by the ocean. A very small house, No running water, toilet outdoors but we have electricity though. When I go there it´s like going back in time a little. It´s very simple and close to the nature. Ok I have my Iphone with me ☺, I´m a modern person that is working online at the same time as I try to enjoy the nature. But the internet connnection is bad so hanging online too much is out of the question.
But what comes to my mind is how healing it is to be there. Without distractions (Tv, traffic, news etc) and close to the nature. I´ve noticed when I simplify I feel much better. I feel it in my whole body and mind, stress decreases and I feel more balanced.
The less distractions and confussions in life the better.
Simplify ~ The less is the new more.
No matter what the situation, remind yourself:
"I have a choice"
~ Deepak Chopra
Quotes can say so much only with a few lines.
Sometimes we are in a middle of making a decision. You don´t know if you should choose to do A or to do B. It can be everyday decisions or it can also be very important ones. Being inbetween the choices and not decide which one you should choose can be more stressful than actually making the wrong decision. You know you need to choose but simply not what too choose.
So what to do?
Sit in a quiet place. Listen to your body what does it say? Yes or no? A or B? Make a choice. If you choose wrong. No problem! You can always make a new decision! The important thing is to choose.
Here´s a short yoga set that will help you to release tension in your back, shoulders and neck. Tension in these areas is often a common cause for headaches. Everything in our body is connected, as I see it, so making your lower spine more flexible and stretching your chest muscles can be a big help to release tension you´re having in the upper back or neck. Ending the set with the neckroll will help you release even more tension in your neck muscles.
Do these yoga poses at home or at work. You can do the whole set or just one or two poses.
Please give me feedback if it helps your headaches! Good luck!
