A Relaxation Tip From Suze Retera
Do you find it hard to make Self Care part of your daily life? Sometimes it seems harder than it really is. When you are leading a busy life, self care extra important, but when it becomes another thing on your to do list, it might give more stress than care.
The trick is to keep it simple, short and consistent. I will share my most favorite and simple exercise with you:
Take a 1 minute break to take 5 deep, slow breaths with your eyes closed is already a great way to take care of yourself and calm your nervous system and can be done any time anywhere.
Do this a few times and take 10 - 15 minutes when you come home or just before you go to bed to lay down in a comfortable position, possibly making use of props and relax in savasana or listen to a yoga nidra recording.
This will help you release the activities from the day and sets the tone for a good night sleep.
