Instant Boost of Calmness
With all the excitement, pandemic- related fear and uncertainty around the upcoming Easter celebrations, I thought you could use this instant boost of calmness.
Try this technique from the HeartMath Institute:
Place your hand on your heart. This stimulates the production and release of Oxytocin, commonly known as the ‘love’ hormone.
Close your eyes. Imagine that you are inhaling and exhaling through your heart. Do this for about two minutes.
Think of someone or something (time, place, experience, person or even four-legged) that makes you feel a great sense of love.
Now, feel this feeling of love in your heart.
Bask in the instant boost of calmness and when you are ready, gently open your eyes and remove your hand from your heart.
Repeat the technique whenever you wish to feel calm, grounded and at ease.
Lots of love,
