Relax to remove your stress

Relax to Succeed

Only a clear state of mind can keep your attention focused and make your attempts succeed. If you are exerted and distracted you cannot do anything. Only a calm state of relaxation can bring you more clarity, support your decision-making, improve your self-care, and provide you greater strength to succeed in your endeavors.

Clearing your mind is essential in creating calm. The chatter of the mind only increases stress and disequilibrium in body, mind, and soul and makes you more exhausted. People dealing with diseases, especially patients and caregivers, negotiate high levels of fear and the unknown anxieties. It caused depression and more exhaustion. You can bring your mind to a calm state by following certain relaxation techniques which can bring support to your body also.

2) Breathing technique

Breathing can help you relax and clear all the mental and physical conflicts you have been having. It can fill you with more oxygen and refresh your energies in body and mind.

Sit up or stand straight with your eyes closed, focusing your attention on your breathing.

Your thoughts may still be wandering and your emotions scattered. Feel the cool air passing through your nostrils. It can transform your stuck mental patterns, release your physical tension, and provide many other benefits.

Breathe in slowly counting one to eight, hold the breath for about eight seconds and then slowly exhale through your mouth. Feel that a good energy is forcing into you through the air and all your exhaustion goes out through the warm air that you exhale. Imagine yourself that all your problems are going out. Repeat this until you feel better.

3) Food is also a relaxation factor

Food plays a vital part in relaxing body and mind. Make sure you eat nutritious food that can boost energy in your body and mind. Choose foods that can keep you healthy. Ayurveda prescribes foods that can calm your body and mind. Unhealthy food choices create havoc in the entire body and cause you more exhausted.

      You may want to consider breaking up each of your blocks of text into a separate capsule, with the subheading the title. It tends to not only make your hub easier to read, but subheading get picked up much better by the search engines. Great read though.
