5 Mindful Tips To Achieve a Balanced Life

By newblog | October 18th, 2018 | LEAVE A COMMENT

We are living in an era where everything moves at the speed of light and creating a balance is a difficult task. We are bounded with strict deadlines and never-ending chaos that drags us down from a healthy and balanced well being. ‘Health is Wealth’ is a golden phrase and a healthy mind, body, and soul can achieve anything. But with the distractions present in our inner and exterior environment, preserving our health takes a back seat. This is where we lack and great care must be extended. Our well being is our real asset and must be protected to a healthy future.

A balanced life is not a myth and can be achieved merely by subtracting the distractions and multiplying the joyous moments that we cherish. Mindfulness is a state of being alert and living in the present which in turns help create a balanced living pattern.

Let us have a look at some simple and handy tips to achieve a more balanced life-

1. Set your intentions right-  

Intentions have a great deal of impact on us. Planting a thought and then feasting on it is harder than it sounds. Balance can be restored by merely manifesting it in our day to day activities. Voice your needs and don’t be shy to speak out your mind. Chant statements like “Everything in moderation” and make it your mantra for a successful and balanced life.

2. Check your breath-

This might sound simple and abrupt to you at first, but pressing our attention on minute things is not easy. Monitor your breath, be mindful of your thoughts and actions and live in present for a more mindful and balanced lifestyle. Equilibrium can be achieved by simply being vigilant about your breath and exhale out all the tensions and stress causing thoughts.

3. Respect your energy and get inspired-

Fatigue and exhaustion are the signs of imbalanced and unhealthy lifestyle. Look out for such symptoms, point it on immediately and take appropriate actions. When we feel fatigued and worn out; it is our body speaking to us. It is telling us to stop and have a good look at our self and invest in remedies. Counterattack your needs of caffeinated products, unjustified naps, and laziness with meditation, yoga or just a morning walk.  This will help restore a balance in your body-mind relationship and enrich our senses.

4. Yoga it out-

Yoga is a proven way to help relieve us from all kinds of mental and physical stress. It is a scientific way to achieve balance and restore a mutual relationship between your mind, body, and breath. Some great asanas for balance restoration are Child pose, Tree pose, Surya Namaskar, Half Moon pose, Warrior poses, and of course the Headstand.

5. Work on the lines of moderation-

In the end, it’s all about on who and on what you utilize your energy on. Be stingy when it comes to lending your energy and rethink before committing yourself to anything or anybody. Make it your mission to find that sweet spot where gratification comes naturally. Hear what is not being said and look out for signs that might bring you peace and quiet.

Our body talks a lot, it just takes time to listen to it. It is our job to listen, analyze, act on it and enjoy the blissful balance that unfolds with it.

This statement can actually turn out to be true in the recent working structure we have got yourself into.

Strict schedules and job-induced stress seems like a significant plot breaker when it comes to our well-being and our career. One dangerous colleague that is always present around in our working space is Sitting.

After smoking, sitting is the most common thing that is hampering our well being and killing yourself slowly but steadily. Researchers have given it a more scientific touch and linked the ill effects of long sitting hours to deskbound routines which in turns lead to heart diseases, diabetes, acute backache and studies that revealed that shorter lifespan is due to our sitting culture.

People who are involved in sitting jobs have revealed that sitting over a system for hours contributes to uncommon tightness in the hip area and legs, acute discomfort to neck and shoulder region along with severe spine issues.

Here are some easy Yoga poses that can help you combat the work stress and provide a physical flexibility-

Mountain Pose (Tadasana)

Allow yourself some moments of relief and combat the stress of the long working day with Tadasana. This is a powerful exercise that focuses on your back and chest. Mountain pose is an excellent pose to free up the tight chest muscles and provide flexibility.

Fish Pose (Matsyasana)

Fish pose is an excellent pose to reduce tension and is a therapeutic asana that helps fight fatigue, stress, and anxiety. Long working hours might satisfy your financial needs and gives a footstool for a sustainable lifestyle but depletes one from their well being if ignored. Matsyasana is practiced to release tension in the most functional areas like the neck, throat, and head and opens up the lungs for unresisted breathing.

Cat & Cow Pose (Marjaryasana & Gomukhasana)

The Marjaryasana & Bitilasana are one of the useful yoga asanas of all times and are a great stress busters. These asanas is an effective headache reliever and improves immunity. It also helps bring relief to your always strained back and painful neck. Cat and Cow pose brings great comfort to the neck area and brings the vertebrae back to homeostasis if practiced continuously.

Slow Neck Stretches

To combat neck ache with constant sitting hours and staring down at your system, yoga practitioners recommend a few rounds of yogic slow neck stretches. Our neck is the most sensitive part and is exposed to constant damage while we sit and work for long hours.  This is a simple exercise and can be practiced while standing in your cubicle.

Brahmari Asana

This breathing technique is a perfect antidote after a long, stressful day at work. Sitali breathing is practiced to release tensions out of the body and bring in positive vibes for our mind to feed on it. Breathing exercises are recommended to people who are easily distorted and have a hard time managing their temper.

Career is important and financial security is essential but as the old phrase goes- “Health is Wealth”. A healthy being is more vulnerable to catching the opportunities and acting on it. So get ready and live it out!
