Addressing the Subtle Energy System to Reduce Stress
Our energy system has a direct influence on our mind, body and spirit. It impacts our health, our moods, our outlook on life and much more. Without learning a whole system of healing there are many things we can do on a daily basis to improve the flow, coherence and functioning of our energy system.
Simply taking time to pay attention to how you feel and noticing what triggers positive energy and what depletes you is a good first step. What lifts your energy making you feel lighter and brighter? Are there things you could do with your daily routines or surroundings to bring more opportunities for enhancing your energy?
Awareness is First Step to Reduce Stress
How about what drags you down? Notice your mood as you go about common activities. Traffic, communication, relationships, work situations we all have ample opportunity in a day to have our energy negatively impacted. The important thing is not that they happened and were troubling; the important thing is that we notice and take corrective action. But first there needs to be a conscious effort to tune in and notice the triggers, events and reactions. Then we can be better informed about how to intervene.
Breath Breaks Can Reduce Stress
An approach that can help you reboot your energy and gain greater clarity is to take time for a breath break several times a day. A realization that hit me several years ago is that we do not expect our cars to run without gas or oil changes but that is essentially what we do to ourselves. Taking time for a breath break, to meditate or practice an energy technique replenishes our energy so we can move through our day with greater ease and effectiveness without building up the detrimental effects of stress.
