Nowadays, every person is striving for a stress-free and peaceful life. Acquiring happiness and peace has become the priority of almost everyone in this world. As the situation worsens, an utmost need for people who spread positivity and joy arises. One such person under discussion today is influencer and blogger Sylvia Fountaine. Sylvia started her food blog to promote a healthy, calm, and stress-free lifestyle. Her blog is full of positivity and creativity that truly reflects her nature.
Even though stress has negative consequences in our lives, we often neglect to address it. According to Sylvia, our hectic schedules and busy lives have considerably contributed to this state, but she believes it is possible to interject moments of calm and peace through out the day- like she learned how to do when she was catering huge events. Here, she reveals her favorite techniques to enjoy a stress-free and balanced life.
Start the day in Peace
Try to begin each day from a place of stillness and peace. Giving ourselves a few moments in the morning for meditation, prayer, deep breathing, or simply re-alligning with your heart is a very grounding practice. The day may not always go as planned, but having a mindfulness practice at the beginning of each day is a way to reset, and can help keep things in perspective, allowing us to be able to better weather any storms.
Healthy cooking and eating
Nourishing our bodies with real food is such a loving gift to give ourselves, especially when under a lot stress. The act of cooking itself, can become a way to relieve stress after a chaotic day. Cooking can become a joyful creative process, one that restores your spirit.
Moving the body is a natural stress reliever. Ever notice after an animal is chased by a predito, afterwards they shake their bodies? This is how they shake off the stress. We can do this too. Whether it is simply walking, stretching, jogging or yoga – any form of movement will help move stressful emotions through us. Always remember to be gentle with your body. Too much intense exercise can further stress the body!
Get Deep sleep
People often underestimate the significance of getting enough quality sleep.This is the time of the day when our bodies and minds are repairing themselves, and especially during stressful periods, this is when it is most important. Prioritze deep sleep by taking a few nights off from drinking and consuming to much sugar. These both impact the quality of our sleep- often preventing us from getting enough deep sleep.
