It’s a good idea to occasionally take a meditative moment, calm your racing heart and press the pause button on your ever active mind – especially if you need brainpower for your work.
Reconnecting with nature can help you, in several ways.
I’ve heard that simply walking barefoot, can enable the body to rebalance electrically.
Taking a brisk walk in the woods, breathing fresh air, and experiencing whatever crosses your path unexpectedly is a highly therapeutic (though decidedly NON-medical) technique.
Spending time at the lake, the creek, or the ocean can help you manage stress by shirking the sense of exasperation you feel when you’re “cramped” in a car, “stuck” behind a desk, or “connected at-the-hip” to a piece of manufacturing equipment.
Take note of the wonders of nature, and allow them to surround you. Rather than having a predictable daily routine, take a new route home. Explore. Try some new foods. See the symphony. Take in a play. Catch a concert. Dance a little. Cry if necessary. Soak in a tub with incense burning. Don’t get stuck in modernity. Find nature everywhere and appreciate what you can do to settle your stresses without carrying those burdens for too long.
