My Top Tips on Calm - 1, 2, 3

The energies are super tough right now. So many of my clients have reached out, I want to give you my 3 top tips for calm. 

They’re free, easy and take almost NO time!

How’s that for awesome? 

My top 3 tips: 

1.    Breath -  1, 3, 10

2.    Mantra – Calm/Patience

3.    Rescue Remedy

1. Breath -  1, 3, 10

This first tip is the magic bullet, the golden nugget or the Holy Grail.  Seriously, this is it. If you take NOTHING else away from this post, please take this first tip. 

There is no right or wrong way to breathe.  If you breathe into your belly, your diaphragm, or your lungs, it’s perfect. There is no force or direction here. Just let your body breathe the way it wants. 

Breath – 1 is the pause button. When you take one breath, you are creating a moment of pause for yourself.  Try it right now.  Inhale and exhale.  

Breath – 3 is settling your body. When you take 3 breaths, you are not only creating a moment of pause, but you are actually settling yourself a bit. Let’s try it.  Take a breath in and breathe out.  Now again, take another breath, and one more, inhale and exhale. You probably can feel the breath spreading a little relaxation throughout your body.  For me, I feel a slight tingling in my toes.  

Breath – 10 is hitting the reset button. Taking 10 breaths feels weird.  Yes, I just said that. It feels as if you are breathing for too long and it feels as if you should stop at 6 or 7 breaths.  Don’t stop until you get to 10 breaths.  You will feel better after 10 so complete the set.  

Let’s do it right now to see how it feels. 

         Breathe in and then out.

         Inhale and exhale.

         Take another breath – in and out.

         Inhale and exhale. 

         Breathe in again and now exhale. 

         Breathe in gently and exhale.

         A few more, inhale and exhale. 

         Inhale and exhale. 

         Breathe in and out. 

         One more, inhale and exhale. 

How do you feel? For me, it makes me relaxed yet gives me energy to continue with my day. 

2. Mantras 

You can employ a silent and quick mantra that you say to yourself over and over.

         I am patient. My patience is rewarded. I am patient right now. 

         I am calm. I am peaceful. I am relaxed. 

         Silence is the best gift I can give to myself right now. 

         I am wisdom.  I have the answers I need right now. 

         I am joy. I am uplifted. My work is light and my heart full. 

These mantras work to give you a pause moment when you really need one. 

3. Rescue Remedy 

Who knows there is a handy little bottle known as Rescue Remedy that helps calm your body? It is made by Bach Flower Essences and it is available at many supermarket chains, such as: Shaw’s, Whole Foods, Stop & Shop, and your local health food stores.  It is also available online at Amazon.com, iherb.com or vitacost.com. 

It comes in a spray, drops, pastilles, gum, cream or melt away drops.   

It can be used during the day, before bed, for adults, children and even for pets. 

If you have any questions, talk to your doctor, nutritionist, or pharmacist. 

Grab a breath, say a mantra or spray some ‘yoga in a bottle.’

Calm is here for you. 

Let’s get some. 

Thank you for reading and sharing with friends. 

 

As always, wising you joy,
