Tip 1. Just take 5 minutes, close your eyes, and slow down. Savour what’s going on, if you can.
Tip 2. If too much is going on, overwhelm is nearby. Take that 5 minutes to prioritise. No point suffering ‘burn out’
Tip 3. The good feeling when you have succeeded in a task, or have just had a good laugh, is valuable. Enjoy it.
Tip 4. Give yourself the gift of ‘Heart Breathing’. We think too much.
Place both hands over your heart
Close your eyes and relax.
Breath in slowly for 5 or 6 seconds, and out for 5 or 6 seconds, focussing on your heart. This has great calming and therapeutic benefit. Do this several times. Enjoy feeling the difference it makes. Your body noticeably calms.
Tip 5. Or just decide that your brain needs a rest, and do it.
