During this time of quarantining, it’s imperative that we keep our minds and bodies on point. It’s easy to to just chill; eat snacks, and watch tv all day lol but that’s super counterproductive and we gotta keep it tight 24/7, 365! There’s nothing wrong with chilling, trust, we’ve been BIG chilling, but we also know that we have to keep a healthy mind and body in this process to balance us out.
Below, you will see some suggestions from our team on some practices to keep your mind and body in tact while we channel through this quarantine:
Meditate For 15-30 Mins
- Find a guided meditation on YouTube or download Mindful app to help
- You can also just find some time to get in a quiet space to sit in silence, and let your mind just go. Sitting in silence is so good because one, we never get to do it and two, you can possibly hear what God has been trying to tell you for a min . The benefits are amazing. #Solitude
- Praying is another form of meditation. Use the time to pray to talk to God. Affirming who you are and what you’ve received or gained.
- Talk to the source and thank God for the things you have.
Listen To Binaural Beats
- Binaural beats in the alpha frequencies (8 to 13 Hz) are thought to encourage relaxation, promote positivity, and decrease anxiety
- Binaural beats in the lower beta frequencies (14 to 30 Hz) have been linked to increased concentration and alertness, problem solving, and improved memory.
- Breathing exercises can decrease anxiety
- Begin with just 5 minutes a day, and increase your time as the exercise becomes easier and more comfortable.
- If 5 minutes feels too long, start with just 2 minutes.
- Types of exercises
- Pursed lip breathing
- Alternate nostril breathing
