Relax the Mind Improve Your Life

Relax the mind and improve your life – easy to say and it’s easy to do – when you know how.

Stress: the cause of numerous health issues

This time of year you are likely to encounter a cold, the ‘flu’, chest infections, sinus infections and sore throats to name a few or someone close to you will develop the symptoms. These bugs and nasty infections get into us when our immune system is a little weak or overworked and no matter what you do they will have their time irritating and weakening you further. Taking the time to relax is paramount for a healthy life. Unfortunately we have lost the art of relaxation (if we ever knew how to). Taking time to relax the mind can improve your life.

Stress is often seen as something linked just to our mood or emotions, we are at work and things are not going right, a particular task is outside of your comfort zone maybe you feel threatened and you feel ‘stressed’ and can’t wait to get home for a beer, glass of wine or grab a bar of chocolate.

The mind matters, getting ‘stressed’ triggers a host of chemical reactions in the organs of the body,  for example to produce more adrenaline. This (adrenaline) is generated in times of fear and the typical situation is often referred to as the ‘flight or fight’ mode . Adrenaline could be seen as the body’s supercharger it gets you going and has been known to push people to do extraordinary physical feats outside of their normal capability. At the time of an accident for example people have been known to lift up a car to release someone who is trapped, when in normal circumstances they don’t have anything like that strength available.

Imagine what state your body and mind would be in if you were feeling that adrenaline rush every few hours during your working day!  And in many, many cases that’s exactly what is happening. If the mind and body keeps pumping extra amounts of chemicals like adrenaline in response to the stresses being perceived by the mind on a regular basis eventually the body can collapse or shut down. There is a cost to this activity and one is that our poor old immune system gets battered and weakened. When you put up your feet for a rest so does the immune system, it can’t cope it almost switches off  and hey presto you have a sore throat, a high body temperature or something more serious. This is why we have to consider ‘relax the mind’ and ‘improve your life’.

So take a look at how to manage the stress in your life, take a break for 5 minutes from the computer screen, have a good laugh with friends or colleagues, have a quiet ‘day dream’ of a great memory, put into perspective the threats in your job. Above all learn how to breath correctly.  Is ‘failure not an option’? I can’t recall any UK bankers being taken out and shot after their catastrophic mismanagement of their business! Perhaps we say YES too often in our jobs when sometimes a reasoned explanation can take undue pressure away. For example “Yes, I can do XYZ I will have to put ABC on hold of course, so which way do you want to play it?” Give it a try.

Too often people have hit that downward spiral in life where darkness prevails and even the small things in life seem to be out of reach. Don’t be unkind to yourself and take control while you can. Good luck and remember your mind does matter, preserve it for you.

Help your self to a better life

Hidden powers of the human mind

The hidden powers of the human mind will continue to interest the scientific researchers for a long time yet. The more that is known about the complexities and the hidden powers of the human mind, the human brain and the many factors that influence man’s behavior the more there appears yet to be discovered.

What makes any of us behave the way we do? Why do so many people ‘conform’ to what is expected of us by our society, our religion and our governments? Why do some communicate better than others? Why are many susceptible to the vagaries of modern life? Why can some people cope and thrive with whatever is thrown at them and yet others ‘fall apart’ ?

Stress is needed by the human body unfortunately not all stress is good. Stress stimulates a reaction that sends the brain a signal and in turn the brain triggers off chemical changes that affect our many organs, heart, liver etc. In some ways stress is a great help in others it can be the start of a death sentence. What I call modern stress is caused by a range of factors that if controlled in some way could help your self to a better life. So many people want what others have, they worry and create stress on themselves or they put themselves in positions of pressure that can’t be managed. Often people carry out jobs that they hate and that is enough to make them ill. They are often driven by the need for a life style that is beyond their reach and has been created from the so called celebrity culture. Keeping up appearances and being seen with must have designer clothes, jewellery or car can have long term damage on your health.

Why can some people communicate well with animals and others  can’t, just think of the horse whisperer! I think it is a capability within us all to work at a higher level of communication we have to open our minds to greater possibilities. Lets face it go back 30 years and who would have been convinced that a small device the size of your hand could carry more information than a truck load of paper files. Man’s brain is far more intricate and powerful than the man made computer. Yet we believe what we see on the computer screen over and above what we feel and sense in our selves. Man has developed  over millions of years and now we are probably further away from using our own built in equipment than ever before. The main sense that man seems to use out of all those that remain dormant inside his mind and body is his ‘gut’ feeling. Even as you read this people will be having a ‘feeling’ inside them that they will ignore and yet it could possibly save their life. You should make greater use of what you have to help your self to a better life and I’m sure life for many would be greatly improved.

Even in this modern materialistic western world there is room for man to develop further his own inner abilities. The are high profile individuals who have tapped in to their inner beliefs and make use of them to help and entertain, sadly unless it is easy and entertaining many people have no interest.
