THE SENSUOUS WOMAN’S CURE FOR STRESS…
GET SOME NEGATIVE IONS!
When you are feeling overwhelmed by Life, for one reason or another . . . Go Outside, and spend time in Nature. Find a place to sit near trees and moving water, if possible. Leave your electronics inside for at least half an hour or more. Take a journal, and something to drink. I also take a pillow along so I can sit anywhere I want. Nature is outside generating Oxygen and Negative ions for you!
Negative ions are the good ones. Negative Ions are healing, and increase the Oxygen in your brain. This increases Serotonin, alertness, and your Sense of Well Being. Look for a place with a babbling brook, or go to the Beach, or to the Mountains. Find a Nature Preserve near where you live, and go there as often as you can. These are the places where you will find tens of thousands of Negative Ions in the air. A spring thunderstorm also creates an abundance of Negative Ions.
When you go to one of these special places, or sit outside after a thunderstorm . . . Just sit, listen, and write if you want. Breathe in deeply and slowly, and exhale completely. Relax your eyes as you gently gaze at the water, or the natural setting that surrounds you. If you have trouble sitting still, do 5 minutes of Yoga, or any moves you like. As you breathe in, focus on the energy-filled, clean air as it flows through you . . . and, as you breathe out, imagine that all of your stress is flowing out of your body, mind, and soul. Continue to breathe slow, long, deep breaths. This is a wonderful time to listen for messages from your Inner Wisdom. If you notice any thoughts that you want to remember, grab your journal, and make a few notes.
When you really can’t get away . . . you can increase the Negative Ions Indoors where you live by adding plants and moving water into your environment. Create or buy a fountain, and a few houseplants to help clean the air, and generate negative ions. You really can create an indoor green space. It’s easier than you think. I will write “How To’s” in other blog entries.
So the next time you are feeling stressed, remember the Sensuous Woman’s Cure for Stress … and get some Negative Ions!
