Just Breathe …

Promoting Optimal Wellness for Mind, Body and Spirit

Feeling overwhelmed or worried? Breathe …, and experience the calmness and release of tension. The simple act of breathing can slow us down physically and mentally and allow us to be more present in this moment.

Meditation becomes as simple as following the breath; a form of mindfulness.

Mindful breathing can be done quickly and easily and offers positive physiologic and behavioral benefits. Benefits include decreased blood pressure, decreased stress, relief of tension (emotional and physical,) improve memory, focus and attention, improved mood, increased immune response, improved relationships, increased empathy and compassion.According to the American Psychological Association, 75% of people regularly experience physical symptoms of stress. Mindfulness meditation, breathing and other forms of relaxation can elicit the relaxation response and decrease symptoms of stress.

One study concluded that carrying out a simple mindful breathing meditation for an average of only 10 minutes per day for a period of 16-weeks improved neural functioning that is indicative of improved focused attention. Just Breath ….

Remember, in this face-paced world of high technology it is important to take time for yourself, slow down and enjoy life more.

Couch potato vs Hot head….

Do you like hot spicy foods (pungent taste)…like jalapeños, ginger, black pepper, pippali, cloves, cayenne pepper, garlic and wasabi?

These foods raise your body temperature and promote sweating. This is why you could sometimes sweat when you eat more of pungent foods! Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC knows those who are “hot headed” and get angry easily should avoid or limit their intake. Those that like the “couch” need to increase their intake!

Benefits:
# Improves Metabolism. Helps in digestion and absorption
# Reduces congestion
# Improves circulation
# Relieves pain and muscle tension
# Cleanses mouth
