This week’s episode is how to savor the shower. Taking a shower is not self-care. I want to point this out ahead of time. Taking a shower is what everyone needs to do every day for their own personal hygiene. I’m just saying. HOWEVER what you do IN the shower could be a form of self-care. I want you to start SAVORING shower time. No eye rolls right now.
What I want you to try to incorporate into your shower is:
- Incorporate aromatherapy
- Head Massage – here is the one that I talk about on the podcast!
- Water Visualization
I hope this helps. I can’t wait to hear from you all once you try this. SAVOR YOUR SHOWER PEOPLE! Get the full details of these things on the podcast
This week’s Everyday Life Coach Podcast is tips on how you can add elements of my digital detox to your everyday life. One of the things that I suggest in my podcast is to turn off notifications. TURN THEM OFF. Here are instructions on how to do it for Android or iPhone. What you’re going to find is by turning them off you’re going to spend less time looking at your phone and that means more time to be present and focused on yourself and the people who are actually around you LIVE. There are three other tips in the podcast. You’ll have to listen!
This week on the Everyday Life Coach the topic is on deep breathing. AHHHHHH.
Let me first tell you all the benefits there are with adding deep breathing to your everyday life.
- Calms sympathetic nervous system. The sympathetic nervous system is activated in times of stress and anxiety.
- Lifts mood
- Raises levels of endorphins and lowers stress hormones
- Boosts energy and stamina
- Increases oxygen in your blood
- Strengthens the immune system
- Promotes better sleep
- Reduction in blood pressure
- Breathing normalizes the heart rate
Now, the next thing you should be saying is, where do I sign up? Here are some great apps that I use to help me with my daily deep breathing.
Here and Now
Stop, Breathe and Think
If you do deep breathing for 20 to 30 minutes each day it will reduce anxiety and reduce stress. Deep breathing increases the supply of oxygen to your brain and stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, which promotes a state of calmness. Breathing techniques help you feel connected to your body—it brings your awareness away from the worries in your head and quiets your mind.
