How can a break make you prettier and healthier
Are you also one of those women who always rush somewhere – from work to pick up children at school, then behind the stove, washing machine, to the store in between, the bank…? Do you also do a million of things at the same time – answer the e-mail in front of the TV, put on make up during telephone conversations…?
If your answer is “yes”, then you’ve caught a “rush disease”. Namely, you live a daily tempo which doesn’t allow you to breathe anymore and take some time off. Despite the fact that nowadays life on the speeding track has practically become something completely normal, we’ve found 6 good reasons why to take the calmer road.
How fast do we live?
- an average person carries out 47 working hours per week – thirteen more than two decades ago
- at the average, most people sleep an hour and a half less per night than our grandparents do
- only a third of families enjoys meals together
- almost by 30% fewer families go on vacations
Did you know that rushing and stress are responsible for the production of cortisol, the stress hormone, which takes care for abundant storage of excessive energy in the part around the waist, which is exactly where you usually target your diet? Learn the relaxation techniques; your figure will be thankful.
Calm at lunch
Don’t fall for quick life tempo and give your stomach 20 minutes of time for calm digesting – namely, it needs this much to send a signal of being full to the brains, which consequently means you can stop eating. And what does this mean – if you eat more slowly and chew each bite well, you’ll be full sooner, and the result is fewer calories.
For a more passionate sexual life
As we’ve already learned at the first lesion, rushing accelerates the production of stress hormones. These hormones have a bad influence also on the production of dopamine, the hormone of good mood, which plays one of the main roles at the keeping of your sexual desire and readiness for the physical pleasures.
So, how can you calm down your lifestyle and at the same time spice up the happening in the bedroom? Before going to bed, take a few minutes with your partner for cuddling and the little things – and the closer you get to him mentally, the more you’ll want him physically
Care for a healthy body and heart
If you can’t take even a moment of break, you’re exposing your heart to danger, as you increase the possibility for the appearance of a high blood pressure by as much as 50 percent. So, when you’ll be nervous again, start saying the sentence that calms you down, for example: “Everything will be all right” or “After all it doesn’t matter if I do it right in this moment.”
Positive thoughts will relax your body and mind, and they will also prevent the feelings, panic to prevail… You’ll be able control yourself more and consciously relax yourself.
Make fitness workout more efficient
Don’t let the daily rushing get to you also while on fitness devices: do exercises slowly and thoughtfully and not impatiently and too quick – this way you’ll strengthen the tension of the muscle better and also burn more calories.
To be a better mother
If you reduce the hectic tempo of your life, you’ll also react to various devilries of your children more calmly and thus prevent family quarrels. Take a few minutes for an honest conversation with your children every day, so that you’ll know what’s going on in their lives and thus create a bond of trust between you.
For more energy
Tension, adrenalin, rushing… all this makes you breathe shallowly and fast which doesn’t deliver enough oxygen the brains and muscles, and the oxygen is the main source of energy.
Correct breathing with diaphragm
Constant stress can suck your precious energy, which is why you should consciously force yourself to deep breathing which will supply your body with enough oxygen. Focus on correct breathing at any time – behind the desk, under the shower, while queuing in the bank…
Be careful to breathe with the diaphragm – when breathing, your belly must move in and out. Sufficient quantities of oxygen will decrease your blood pressure and invigorate you.
Be focused enough and successful at your workplace
Constant rushing to carry out a certain task as good as possible only creates panic and chaos, and on top of this it also decreases your creativity and productivity at work and increases the possibility of mistakes and doing things half way.
And how can you calm down among a bunch of work obligations?
Get down to work in an organized way and set priorities. Make sure you have deadlines for certain projects always written in a visible place. Always finish one task and then take up a new one.
