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:

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:


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


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

4. Use Essential Oils:


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:

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:

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:

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:

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:

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:

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:

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?


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)


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.

Reconnect. Heal. Transform. With Reconnective Healing & The Reconnection By Dr. Eric Pearl!


Being part of a society, community or family comes with a network of relationships that are complex and myriad.  We have all gone through the experience of feeling disconnected and alienated from our loved ones.  For that matter, we often also experience an inability to connect with our own selves!

Spiritual and energy healing philosophies illustrate how this network of connections we exist in, extends through the entire universe. It is merely the question of being aware of these subtle connections at every level of our being.


With different energy healing techniques sprouting up in the alternate healing stream, it is useful perhaps to explore and hold onto the essence of healing itself in order to understand what these techniques unravel for us.

Most of these techniques construct the idea of a “healer” who through his/her healing medium is able to expand someone’s energy to experience wellness and overcome the physical body’s troubles. But what is the source of this healer’s capacity to heal?

If such a capacity implies a tapping into the universal source of energy, can we all perhaps be healers through the capacity to be aware and harness this energy?

Reconnective Healing is said to completely transcend traditional energy healing techniques as it makes one let go of the concept and approach of “technique” itself.  It does not promote healing you but putting you in touch with the healer within yourself and every other being. It pronounces itself neither as therapy nor as treatment, as it does not focus on symptoms. It claims to simply interact with the Reconnective Healing Frequencies, bringing about transformative healings that are often instantaneous and tend to be life long.

“Become the healing instrument that you already are,” says Dr. Eric Pearl who has taken Reconnected Healing in more than 100 countries worldwide. Eric’s hope is that one day everyone will learn to access this natural ability and will use it to heal themselves and others.


While science continues to discover how it works, Reconnective Healing has been confirmed and documented in numerous international studies. When Reconnective Healing Frequencies connect with our energy body, we are said to emit and vibrate at a higher level of light. This has been shown to restructure our DNA, resulting in the emission of measurably higher levels of bio-photonic light.

Stanford Professor Emeritus Dr. William Tiller says that when information is carried through the Reconnective Healing Frequencies, it creates coherence and order. In other words, greater harmony and balance within us.

The Reconnection is an accelerated exchange of the energy, light and information found in the Reconnective Healing Frequencies. It is a focused formation to connect three systems: the ley lines of our planet, the meridian lines of the human body and the universal energy grid. The Reconnection is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that ties us back into a timeless and infinite system of intelligence beyond the experience of our superficial physical being.

One Reconnective Healing Facilitator working on the Illuminations platform,  shares her experience with Reconnection as “such a beautiful all-encompassing energy healing. As healers it makes us reassess our attachment to “the healing process” and opens us up to the single source of all humanity.”

So the next time you feel disconnected, off-balance, out of sync, perhaps there is a much larger Reconnection awaiting you!
