This Wellness Wednesday I'll be discussing the fine art of mental escapes.. yes, mental escapes.
Lovely display in the loft that brings beauty, and a lovely sense of inner peace.
Who doesn't love a vacation? Of course we all do, but after an incident affects your chi and you find yourself off center, not all of us are able to shut life down at the drop of a hat and head to our ideal vacation spot. Being aware of what makes you smile or brings about a sense of calm is your mental escape, which allows you to be in a moment of stress.. however you can find the balance and the peace regardless.
A beautiful floral arrangement or smooth jazz gets me there right away. If I'm in an environment where I may be unable to have either around, I always carry soothing scented oils with me. There's never been a time when I wasn't able to decompress while doing this.
If you're not into any of those suggestions, one of the absolute best, no-fail methods for a mental escape is slow, steady, deep breaths. Letting your mind relax and fixating on your pattern of breathing will find you at peace, and no longer irritated or stressed about whatever made you lose your center.
