It is vital here in Ibiza and it sets a positive, holistic well-being trend for when you return to wherever your day-to-day reality may be.
So why is it so important for our health, happiness and wellbeing? Well……
When you do stop properly your mind can unwind properly.
Our conscious mind can deal with 5, 7 or even 9 bits of information at any one time.
Our amazing unconscious, which is running our whole mind-body system, is always at work. So when switching off the phone, stepping away from the emails, the whassups and bleeps, the unconscious mind can also rest. Whether you choose to sleep, you are giving your always-active-senses time off to recuperate and recharge.
Our eyes, our ears, our taste-buds, our smell and even our sixth intuitive sense are always working, tuning in and out of stimuli in our environment.
So when you give them space – and close your eyes – or purely look at the sea, the pool, green grass or something simple and relaxing, this creates energetic space – and space in the mind – help you feel clearer, lighter and refreshed. Use an i-pod and listen to soft calming sounds to help your mind keep relaxing.
The conscious mind LOVES to keep spinning. And this can send us into a tail-spin! By giving clients, emails and other reactive triggers space and time, you can also come back with a more considered, careful and most likely, more successful response. In your own way, in a calm and easy pace.
Just notice the difference, when you receive an email or text from someone who you can “just feel” is on the run, or highly stressed.
And how much nicer is it to receive a note or text from someone who clearly put thought and care into what they were writing?
So Just Stop! once a day – even just for 5 minutes in the afternoon, wherever you are in the world, breathe, be, look at beautiful inspiring pictures or even better, sit down or lie down on the grass…. under trees, somewhere in nature. It is summer everywhere afterall!
