11 Relaxation Tips for Tired Bodies and Stressed Minds


Illuminations, is a Dubai-based well-being center offering a variety of different services based on holistic healing, mental well-being and personal growth. 

Our goal is to empower you to detangle from the stressors of daily life and expand beyond your self-imposed limitations to create a happier and healthier life!

We introduce 11 Relaxation tips to destress from tired bodies and stressed minds!
 
1. Sit still and focus on your breathing:

1
 
 
Inhale slowly and deeply for eight seconds, then exhale slowly for eight seconds. Repeat this five or six times. It helps bring more oxygen to the brain.
 
2. Go for a walk around the block:

2

This will help you to breathe more deeply and improves circulation
 
3. Visualize:

3

Breathe deeply and think of a place that gives you comfort: a private beach, a garden, a cozy room.

4. Use Essential Oils:

4

such as lavender, geranium, sandalwood, neroli, and bergamot soothe and relax. Combinations of these oils can be used in either spray, roll-on or diffuser form.

5. Strike a deal with a trusted friend or co-worker to be stress-busting pals:

5
Whine! Bellyache about what's making you feel stressed. Get really dramatic and by the end you may both find yourselves laughing hysterically.
 
6. Divide a piece of paper into two parts:

6
On the right side, list the stressors you may be able to change, and on the left, list the ones you can’t. Change what you can, and stop fretting over what you can’t.

7. Be clear about your limits, and stop trying to please everyone all the time:

7
Trying to do everything is a one-way ticket to serious stress.
 
8. Stretching loosens muscles and encourages deep breathing, which in turn helps you to relax:

8
Muscles tighten during the course of the day, and when we feel stressed out, the process accelerates.

9. Soaking in a tub full of warm water can work wonders when you're feeling stressed:

9
The warm water relaxes you physically, loosening tight, stiff muscles. And, as a result, you relax mentally as well. Add some aromatic oils and some bath salts and your set.

10. It's a proven fact that soothing music can be relaxing:

10
The type of music you choose is entirely up to you. Buy a CD featuring soft, modern ballads, gentle classics, smooth jazz, or Nature inspired music. When you feel stressed, pop the music into the player and let the music carry you away.

11. Meditate:

11
focusing the mind on a word, phrase, or idea and letting go of other thoughts with an attitude of passive acceptance for relaxation or making positive changes.

How Are Yoga and Meditation Related?


1_copy1

Yoga is defined as the union of the mind, body and spirit, and hence the practice of yoga is a spiritual, mental and physical discipline. Many people associate Yoga as an exercise, however it is much more than that. Yoga is a way of life involving body postures, controlled styles of breathing and stillness of mind, in order to achieve a relaxed body, calm mind, along with several other scientifically proven health benefits.

Meditation is part of the mental yoga practice and one key element of Yoga, in order to achieve higher states of mental awareness and relaxation. A Yoga practice is rarely complete without the practice of meditation.

While our energies are focussed to do asanas (poses) in specific way, in that moment nothing goes in our mind- we are focussed and engaged. That’s what we also do in meditation. We focus our mind on our breath. The idea is to bring our mind to one state that is focussed. When all other thoughts stop and we experience a unity of mind, body and spirit.

In that way yoga and meditation are bringing us closer to the same state- that is oneness.
Yoga consists of eight fold path. To achieve nirvana – ultimate freedom, a yogi walks on this path.
1. Yamas (Don’ts or Restraints)
2. Niyamas (Do’s or Observances)
3. Asanas (Exercises and poses)
4. Pranayamas (Breathing exercises and techniques)
5. Pratyahara (Control of the senses)
6. Dharana (Concentration)
7. Dhyana (Meditation) and
8. Samadhi (A super-conscious state)

2_copy1

Meditation is an important state to achieveSamadhi- or union with divine. Buddha achieved Samadhi while he was sitting in lotus pose or padmasan and meditating.

Inorder to achieve a goodmind body connect we need to communicate at the level of both mind and body. The principle of yoga, the asanas or poses along with meditation and a yogic lifestyle has answers to our existential questions. We just need to be as true to our selves and our bodies as we can.

How Meditation Impacts Brain?


1_copy

Millions of people practice meditation. The techniques of meditating may vary but the purpose remains same- peace, love, joy, healing, tranquillity, spiritual growth. Because of its popularity a lot of research is being conducted to study the impact of meditation on our bodies, specifically our brain. Sara Lazar is a neuroscientist at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. She researched how meditation impacts our brain. The results of her study surprised her along with other researchers.


They did a comparative study on long term meditators and people who don’t meditate and compared their brains scans.

First thing noticeable was that the grey matter in the insula, sensory regions and frontal cortex was higher in meditators which means their senses were very sharp, memory and decision making skills better compared to non-meditators.in fact the size of cortex and its grey matter in 50 year old meditators was equivalent to as much as a 25 year old would have whereas we all know that our cortex shrinks and grey matter reduces with age as well. Overall the research identified significant brain regions to be more active, less stressed, calm, better memory and executive functions and aging to be slower. It also showed dense grey matter in regions of hippocampus, an area of brain associated with learning and memory, as well as in other areas associated with self-awareness, compassion, and reflection.


There are many other researches being conducted on the impact of
meditation on physical body.

We can safely say that meditation helps in reduced stress levels, better work- life balance, improved emotions, and better quality of life. Improved connection with self and others, deeper understanding of life. Meditation is a safe remedy for stressed based issues according tocardiologist Herbert Benson, MD, founder of the Mind/Body Institute at Harvard Medical School's Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.

Meditation brings about a state of relaxation which in turn helps decrease metabolism, lowers blood pressure, and improves heart rate, breathing, and brain waves. Other researches shows that meditation produces long-lasting changes in the brain activity in areas involved in attention, working memory, learning, and conscious perception. There are many types of meditation practices available but the foundation of each one stays the same- focussing on breath, calming the mind and body and going into a deep sense of relaxation. Through entering this state of relaxation we can achieve many beautiful things inside and outside us. Let’s all venture into this beautiful area of meditation and find outwhich type of meditation suits us.

Wellness Retreat in Bhutan: Feb 24th - March 3rd, 2015




This retreat provides you a brilliant opportunity to reconnect with the power you have within yourself surrounded by a picturesque Himalayan landscape, where energetically "material and spiritual development happen together."


Snapshots of Bhutan




About Bhutan:

Join us for an outer & inner journey of a lifetime to the beautiful Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan lead by renowned fearless living facilitator Denis Murphy.

Known as a land of contentment, Bhutan is a country known to measure the wellbeing of its people by Gross National Happiness (GNH) rather than Gross Domestic Product (GDP). - 2013 Worlds Happiness Report By UN

We as individuals are all on quest to discover and experience this feeling of contentment, which is the key to our long-term happiness. What blocks us from this happiness is our perceptions, our fears and our energetic patterns which leave us stuck in a limiting space.

Therefore we found the perfect synergy by choosing a location that is ranked the happiest country in Asia and the 8th Happiest Country in the world, despite its significantly small size and & population of only 800, 000 people.



Facilitated By: Denis Murphy

In such a short span of time in the UAE, Denis Murphy has managed to become one of Illuminations fastest growing thought leadership facilitators.

He is one of the world's finest energy healers, and most of our clients will be able to vouch for that! Denis Murphy uses the latest mind-body medicine and energetic techniques to release emotional and physical pain as well as creative blockages. Combining energy work, shamanism and spiritual insight you see results in unimaginable time frames. His approach is based on taking 100% responsibility for your life! "
