How to Relax More, Avoid Stress and Enjoy Life More

To be more relaxed is good for the health, for well-being, for feeling good which generates a higher frequency. The higher frequency is the reason that when you are relaxed, you create what you want. Thanks to the higher frequency, you have a nice radiation which makes you popular.

Being relaxed releases tension and helps against stress. Stress is when your body is out of balance which can cause disease. With relaxation methods you bring your body into balance. You see clearer, resolve problems faster, some problems will resolve themselves and life will be easier.

Implement one or more methods to relax in your daily ritual to stop stress and tension and enjoy the beauty of life more.

If you have too much stress, you need to relax in between. To have some stress is okay. Physical tension during sports is essential for your health. But if you have too much stress over a longer period of time, you can get sick and things go wrong.

Relaxing is good

In this post I explain methods and tips on how to relax more.

I am usually wonderfully relaxed. If I get together with someone who is tense, I strongly feel it and it doesn‘t feel good.

Factors that cause stress and tension

  • Watching News
  • Being disorganized at work and at home
  • Working and living without a plan
  • Thinking of problems over and over again

The News are a Strong Tension Factor

People are very tense after having seen the news. They let the news influence their wellbeing. They believe that all the world is so bad, because that is what they see day by day on the news. There is more good happening in the world, but you don‘t hear about it on the news.

The news are a strong tension factor. The many bad news prevent you from being and staying relaxed. Maybe I’m usually so relaxed, because I read only the headlines of the most important news. Only if something interests me I read more of it. Cruelty and horror does not interest me at all.

Do not let negative messages ruin your good mood, your well-being and your health. Be aware of the beautiful side of life. You rarely hear about beautiful events in the news. So make your own news.

If you can choose between a drink that tastes good and one that causes nausea, do you choose the one that causes nausea? Definitely not! But why are you watching the news? Do you really find it necessary to learn of negative evil of this world? Think about it!

Being relaxed you have a higher frequency

Do not make yourself unnecessary stress

When it comes to stress and tension, of course I have to mention professional stress and the tension that various problems can cause. I know both enough. A few years ago I made the decision not to stress myself in spite of problems, I repeat: I have decided not to stress myself. It is not the problems that cause stress, but how you see the problems. Some people increase their stress and problems by having their focus on it. They do not think of the solution, but of the problem itself over and over again. It is the inner attitude to the things that makes the difference.

When everything seems to get too much, I take the time for a glass of Prosecco with some nibbles. If possible I sit in a café, take a few long breaths, relax and enjoy. You gain time taking time to relax. Reason: You see things straight and your thoughts are getting organized, You think of solutions and might find them. Then you think of your agenda and what comes next. To get back to work in a relaxed state of mind is a plus.

Take time to relax. You will see straight and see solutions in case you have problems. Have an agenda to know what has to be done next.

If you are relaxed you will see the solutions and the cause of stress is gone. You will know what you have to do to get the problem out of the way.

Too much work causes stress. Organize your tasks. Write a daily and weekly agenda and proceed according to plan. Get up early, because in the morning you get a lot more done than later.

What can you do to live more relaxed

Relaxing is good for your health, for your general well-being and for a happier and better life.

Rethink your life. What do you like and what not? Rethink a day of the week and the weekend. What do you have to change to enjoy life more and be more relaxed? Read on for methods and tips about how to relax. Add at least one way to relax into your daily routine.

Be more relaxed. It has many advantages.

When do you feel stressed? What prevents you from being relaxed?

• The rush in the morning
• Traffic on the way to work
• The challenges at work
• Shopping on the way home
• Getting dinner to the table and the work in the household
• The restlessness of the children

What can you do to be more relaxed despite everyday challenges

A) Prevent rush in the morning by getting up a little earlier and organizing your morning ritual.
B) Can you drive to work sooner or later to prevent morning traffic? Is there another route to work where there is less traffic? Can you do some of your work from home?
C) Address the challenges at work with more peace of mind. It is an inner attitude. Have an agenda of all tasks for the day and persue it point by point. If a problem arises, brainstorm for the best solution.
D) Get some shopping done on the way to work or on Friday evening.
E)If you have family, everyone should help with dinner preparations. That can be fun. There are simple recipes and dinner can be prepared quickly.
F) If your children are very restless, maybe that’s a bit up to you. Let them talk and tell about their lives.

Make notes for a few days about what is causing tension and is preventing relaxation. Find ways to change all that. Discuss those points with your family where one or all family members are involved.

Find Inner Peace to get and stay relaxed

Not everyone wants to go to the country to find peace and to be undisturbed. It is about creating peace and finding inner calmness, no matter where you live. The best way to relax is meditation. If you have family, meditate together. Meditation will improve your family life.

Turn everything off and relax

Turn everything off for about 30 minutes or longer and enjoy the silence. Meditate for 20 minutes or longer. If you do not live alone, have your family join the silence and the meditation.
Turn off the TV during dinner. After the meal, you can play a game with your chilldren. And if you have to run to the internet, choose well what you read and what you share. Do not loose valuable time for no good reason.

Do you find music in the background relaxing? If so, then choose music that relaxes. It nicely changes the atmosphere. Keep the volume down, so that conversations are not disturbed

Meditating is the best way to relax

Meditation is good for the health, stimulates creativity, increases concentration, brings inner peace and relaxes wonderfully. After meditating you have more energy and you need less sleep. It is not by chance that many successful entrepreneurs meditate daily. When it gets stressful or something causes problems, an entrepreneur who meditates regularly, stays calm.

Thanks to meditation, you easily find solutions of problems,you stay younger, and you can even heal yourself. If you want to heal yourself, you have to meditate a lot longer as usual. Well, you have to meditate until you forget your body. Day by day a little about yourself will be changed. Continue until you are healed.

Breathing deeply once or more times a day relaxes

Deep breathing in and out several times daily counteracts stress, calms and relaxes.

If you are tense and stressed, you breathe shorter and flatter. That reinforces that you do not feel good. As soon as you pause and take deep breaths a few times, you feel better.

Try it right now! Take a deep breath, hold your breath for a few seconds, breathe out slowly, and wait a few seconds before taking another deep breath, hold your breath, and so on. Repeat this several times.

Dancing and singing relaxes

To move rhythmically with or without music is good and relaxing. Singing is good because it has to do with breathing. If you have family, dance and sing together.

A Siesta is pure relaxation

If you have the opportunity to sleep for half an hour after lunch, do it. That’s pure relaxation. You will be full of energy throughout the afternoon and evening.

A walk relaxes

Walking in a park or in a forest is nice and relaxing. But also to stroll in shopping streets can be relaxing.

If you go for a walk in nature, look for a thick tree trunk, lean your back against it and close your eyes. Linger for a few minutes. The tree will give you an extra amount of energy.

Regular sport is relaxing

What is good for the body is also good for the mind. Anyone who is mentally well is also physically well and vice versa. Doing sports is essential for your health and well-being. If you are a couch-potatoe, get up and do some physical exercises.

No matter what kind of sports you choose, do workout several times a week. It is good against stress and tension. Whether you go for a run, jumping rope, jumping on a home trampoline, working out with free wights, or working out in a gym, you will feel better and more relaxed.

If you have children, play a ball game with them. If you do not have your own garden, then there is a possibility in the nearest park. This is fun for your kids and good for you.

Interval Training

In interval training you take turns doing an exercise that is strenuous and then one that is relaxing. The stress phase has a duration of 1 to 2 minutes, the recovery phase 2 to 3 minutes. Inform yourself about interval training with a trainer, on the Internet or you can put together one yourself. For example: Lift weights quickly, three times 10 reps fast and then do a floor exercise for abdomen or legs. While running you can sprint for 1 to 2 minutes and then walk or run slowly. With Interval Training you can achieve more in less time than with continuous hard training. (Amazon Affiliate Link)

Attention: For a beginner the interval training is not recommended. You must be used to hard training, otherwise physical damage can occur. First, exercise regularly for a few weeks to months before engaging in interval training.

More Tips to Relax

Looking into the night sky is relaxing

Sit or lie down after dark somewhere where you have a view of the sky. The sky should be clear, not cloudy. A deck chair or a soft mat, such as a yoga mat are good. Look into the sky for a few minutes or longer. Look at the stars and star formations. Of course, that’s especially nice if you do it with a partner or child. Think that a star can consist of thousands to several billions of planets and suns. It can be a solar system or a galaxy. It is important to understand that looking into the night sky is relaxing.
