    Live In The Present Moment: The #1 Secret to be Stress-Free

    Live In The Present Moment: The #1 Secret to be Stress-Free

    Today, I want to tell you about the one secret to being stress-free to live in the present moment. Let us start by looking at what stress is and the impact it has on our bodies.

    Stress and Your Health

    According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, stress is a feeling of emotional or physical tension. It is how your body reacts to any challenge or demand. Thoughts, events, or feelings of frustration, anger, or nervousness can result in stress. When your body experiences stress, it releases hormones to make your brain more alert, muscles tense, and pulse to increase. 

    Some health problems associated with chronic stress include:

    ● High blood pressure
    ● Heart disease
    ● Diabetes
    ● Obesity
    ● Depression or anxiety 

    The 1 Secret to be Stress-Free: Live In The Present Moment

    Now that you know the dangers of stress, you may be thinking of ways to alleviate any chronic or unneeded stress from your life. In short, the 1 secret to be stress-free is to live in the present moment.

    When you live in the present moment, you let go of both the past and future to instead live your life with your body, feelings, and immediate situation joined as one. The benefit of living in the present is that you focus on what you can control and let go of things that are out of control.

    You might be thinking, “Who doesn’t live in the present moment?” and brush off this advice. But the truth of the matter is that very few people intentionally live in the present.

    Let us try a short exercise. I want you to close your eyes and think about everything that you have done today. Especially take note of all the times that you lived in either the past or the future.

    Common examples of living outside the present include worrying about tomorrow’s busy schedule, allowing past relationship mistakes to dictate resent relationships, or staying glued to your phone in social situations.  My guess is that a lot of your day was spent worrying about the past or the future. If this sounds like you, then it is time to start living in the present more.

    Of course, thinking about your future and reflecting on your past are both good things. In fact, thinking about your past and future helps you to grow and create a life you want. But it is important that you use the past and future to create a present that makes you happy and fulfilled.

    Start harnessing your energy towards the ability to live in the present moment. Allow yourself to feel emotions as they come and focus on the tasks that are directly in front of you. As you do this, you will see much of your stress melt away, helping you to live a stress-free life.

    Healing Relaxation Music: 852Hz + 528Hz Solfeggio Frequencies

    Healing Relaxation Music: 852Hz + 528Hz Solfeggio Frequencies

    This peaceful one-hour relaxation music, enhanced with 852Hz + 528Hz Solfeggio Frequencies, is ideal for deep meditation, sleep, rest. Relaxing music can be used as stress relief music or peaceful music when practicing meditation for anxiety or meditation for sleep.

    528 Hz Solfeggio Frequency: Repairs DNA, Brings Positive Transformation

    852 Hz Frequency: Awakens Intuition, Raises Energy at Cellular Level
     
    Solfeggio Frequencies are long associated with meditation music. These musical tones were first adopted by the Gregorian Monks when they chanted in meditation. Many believe Solfeggio Frequencies penetrate deep into the conscious and subconscious mind, stimulating inner healing.

    In these busy and uncertain times, it can be difficult to create a sense of balance and find peace in our lives. By listening to relaxation music with Solfeggio Frequencies, you can create a zone of peace that allows you to experience each day from a place of alignment and balance with your true nature.

    Stanford University researchers found that listening to HEALING MUSIC can change brain functioning to the same extent as medication.

    Music connects with the automatic nervous system (brain function, blood pressure, and heartbeat) and the limbic system (feelings and emotions). When slow music is played, the bodily reaction follows suit– the heart blow slows down and blood pressure drops. This causes the breath to slow, which helps release tension in the neck, shoulders, stomach, and back.

    Calming music can also be used as work music to improve work productivity when you study and many people find it useful as concentration music, work music, or study music as it is really effective for concentration.

    Quieting your mind does not mean you will automatically feel sleepy. It means your brain and body are relaxed, and with your new calm self, you can then function at your best in many activities.

    Healing and Renewal. It has been proven that when the body and mind are relaxed, the body's natural ability to heal itself is greatly enhanced. Listening to relaxation music improves your mood by releasing dopamine, the feel-good brain chemical that is involved when people experience pleasure and reward.
    Stay focused on the music itself. If you find yourself thinking about other things (or even thinking thoughts about the music), gently redirect your attention to the present moment, the sound of the music, and the feelings in your body that the music evokes. Try to really feel the music.
    Many people use relaxing meditation music or peaceful music to find inner peace or use our relaxing music for yoga or during your Zen meditation session.  This relaxing meditation music provides a great opportunity for meditation for sleep and relaxation.

    3 Easy Ways To Be Mindful During A Chaotic Day At Work

    3 Easy Ways To Be Mindful During A Chaotic Day At Work

    3 Ways To Be Mindful At Work: Work can be one of the most stressful parts of a person's life, and chaotic days at work are even worse. To both be productive at work and enjoy your life, it is important to learn how to be mindful amidst the work chaos.

    1. Use Your Breaks Wisely

    Although it can be tempting to pull out your phone and mindlessly scroll through social media, one of the best ways for mindfulness in the workplace is to use your breaks wisely and intentionally.
     
    28 Mindfulness Techniques And Ideas To Enhance Your Life

    Try to use your break time to recharge and reset physically, mentally, and emotionally. For example, try meditative breathing, gratitude journals, or journaling, in general, to try to be mindful during your work break. If none of those ideas work for you, then simply find a way to recharge your batteries while still being present in the moment.

    If you use your work breaks more wisely, you will be more energized and level-headed when you get back to work. As a result, you will be able to be more productive, handle your projects better, and connect with your coworkers.

    2. Learn How To Say “No”

    At work, it can be tempting to agree to nearly every project that gets placed on your desk. Obviously, you want to do your best and put your best foot forward for getting a bonus or promotion. However, saying “yes” to all tasks is not always in your or your company’s best interest.

    Whenever you feel overwhelmed or overworked, you need to learn how to say “no.” If you agree to all projects, especially when you feel overwhelmed, both you and the work will suffer, which is not the best strategy for being an efficient and functional worker.

    Mindfulness and Meditation: Discover Your Best Personal Power

    When you say “no” to a project, make sure you remain professional and respectful. Simply explain that you have too much work on your plate already, ask if someone else can handle the job, or ask if you can accomplish the task at a later date.

    3. Be A Single-Tasker

    Everyone likes to think of themselves as a multitasker, which is when you try to do two or more tasks at the same time or switching back and forth between them. Even if you think you are a great multitasker, our brains are best at operating on one task at a time. For this reason, it is wise to be a single-tasker, meaning someone who focuses on one task at a time, at work.

    5 Minute Guided Spiritual Meditation To Begin Your Morning

    5 Minute Guided Spiritual Meditation To Begin Your Morning

    The Types of Spiritual Meditation

    Spiritual meditation aims to help a person dig deep into the inner self in order to discover the wisdom and tranquility that lie within. It can be done by developing awareness, harmony, and natural order into life through meditation. Different techniques can be employed in order to achieve this.

    Different meditation techniques have been developed since ancient times in an effort to help people experience a higher state of consciousness. This usually makes use of the ability to clear the mind of distractions and focusing mainly on the self. Here are some of the techniques that most people use to get in touch with their spiritual consciousness through meditation.

    One of the ancient techniques in meditation used is one that Buddhists practice. This technique is called mindfulness meditation and involves learning how to be aware of the things that one does and the things that are happening around at the very moment.

    This type of meditation technique can take time to master and involves four steps.


    The first step is abstinence from the five moral rules which are killing, stealing, lying, sexual misconduct, and the use of toxic substances.  

    The second step is the practice of Anapana Meditation for three and a half days where a person is taught how to meditate while focusing on one's breathing. 

    The third step involves purifying the mind which involves self-observation for six and half days. 

    The fourth step involves speaking and living an extroverted life. This meditation technique closes with the practice of metta Bhavana which involves sharing the purity developed with others.
    Another type of meditation technique is Transcendental Meditation, the most debated and researched one among the many meditation types. This type of meditation aims to help one attain enlightenment if practiced in the long term. This meditation technique also can help increase intelligence and creativity. This technique does not require the mastery of difficult breathing techniques or the use of some special postures. A person needs only to learn how to concentrate by sitting in a relaxed and comfortable posture and position.

    Another meditation technique is vibrational meditation which involves the repetition of a mantra, a particular word, or a sound that becomes the focal point of the meditation process. The vibrations that are produced by making the word or sound are experienced passing through the body. During meditation, the individual is to concentrate on nothing else but the sound as it is uttered again and again.

    These different types of spiritual meditation techniques take time to master. It may be hard for some people to get used to focusing on one thing, due most of the time to the influence of the world in general and how it has clouded and cluttered the mind with thoughts of problems, worries, and stress.

    But with regular practice and eventually making a certain type of spiritual meditation technique a regular habit, people may be able to look into their inner selves more effectively and then achieve a higher sense of consciousness that may help one attain inner peace.

    8 Easy Meditation Techniques You Can Use For A Busy Lifestyle

    8 Easy Meditation Techniques You Can Use For A Busy Lifestyle

    Today, I want to tell you 8 ways to meditate for busy people. First, let’s discuss what meditating means.

    Historically, scholars have had a hard time defining meditation. Many view meditation as a practice with the aim of training your attention and awareness so that you become more mentally clear and emotionally calm and stable. Meditative techniques can include mindfulness, focusing on a single thought, or intentional breathing.

    No matter the technique, meditating involves focusing your mind and stopping the routine and business around and within you.

    Since meditating involves controlling your mental and physical actions, busy people can find it difficult to incorporate meditation into their life. But there are 8 easy ways to introduce meditative practices into your busy routine. Let us look at those 8 techniques. 

    1. Be in the Moment

    The best way to meditate when you have a busy schedule is to be in the moment. Being in the moment means focusing on the present, as opposed to the past or future while performing your daily tasks and chores. This step may seem easy enough, but you will find that a lot of your life revolves around the finished past or imagined future.

    2. Breathe During Your Breaks

    The second way to meditate during your busy life is to incorporate intentional breathing into your daily actions. Although we breathe our entire life, very few people take the time to breathe with intention. Next time you take a sip of coffee, for example, take a couple of seconds to close your eyes and intentionally breathe in the steamy air. 

    3. Meditate While You Wait

    Another way to meditate if you are a busy person is to simply meditate while you wait. Studies show that the average human will stand in line for approximately six months of their life.

    4. Multi-task

    A fourth way to introduce meditation into your busy schedule is to multitask. Instead of absentmindedly doing your daily chores, incorporate meditative techniques into those actions. Multi-tasking in this way will allow you to meditate without adding any more tasks to your daily routine.

    5. Incorporate Meditation into Your Daily Routine

    You can also find time to meditate by incorporating it into your schedule. Many adults have a morning routine, for example. Find open time in that routine, such as when you are pouring your coffee or watching the sunrise. Incorporating meditation into your schedule will force you to meditate without it taking up any more time of your day.

Slow sound engineer

Who was the genius that decided to add an immensely loud electronic noise now to every episode at the beginning? Used to be 5 stars without the obnoxious sound playing right after a meditation is finished. Fix this!
