In this mad world where stress is the norm, it’s important to take time out for yourself and to truly relax for a while. If you can’t do this, stressors can have a significant and extremely unhealthy effect on your life. These days, stress comes from all angles. You might have a difficult job, one which is fast-paced and consistently pressured. You may have problems in the home environment which makes it difficult to let go of any tension after a hard day at work, or there may be financial or health issues which prevent you from unwinding.
We’ve all been there, lying in bed, tired, stressed, eyes burning with tiredness, stomach churning as soon as you think about going to work the next day and the moment you close your eyes, all those anxieties and negative thoughts come rushing in. Sleep, well, that is practically impossible.
Gaining control over the stress in your life is paramount to your being healthy or unwell. It’s that simple. Stress is dangerous. Never underestimate it, even if you think you are managing stress quite well. You MUST incorporate some time in your life that is just for you. While there are many ways to relax, if you think that you are too tired or too busy, (that’s a sure sign of stress) but if you don’t allow the mind and body to let go of angst and for the healing process to begin, you’ll become ill. You’ll certainly feel tired, grumpy, impatient and angry…sometimes, for no other reason than you couldn’t sleep and it was impossible to shut anxieties out of your mind.
I know what it’s like but I do know a solution. Listening to recorded meditations can transport you away from the day to day stressors and give your body and mind a chance to recharge. Even better, it’s soothing and kind so that you feel great afterwards. It may not get rid of stress but it will enable you to handle it better. Life will not feel so difficult and best of all, you’ll sleep and the world will feel a much better place.
