10 minute Relaxation

Are you feeling stressed and your mind is constantly busy with chatter and thoughts of all you have to do in your day? Why not take just 10 minutes to sit and relax to calm your mind, body and spirit. You can do it. It is okay to take care of yourself and your spirit.It's okay to stop all the mind chatter for a few moments and you will find if you do, you will be able to handle those unexpected moments and the stress and the worry a bit better.

Let's start by taking a nice relaxing breath in and hold... and then exhale letting all the stress seep out of your body. Feel it releasing from your muscles and your mind. It's okay to just let it go and to just be for a few minutes. Again, let's take another nice deep breath and hold for a moment and then exhale. Feel the tension moving out of your body as you exhale and let go.

Sit for a few moments with your eyes closed while you listen to a soothing soft melody. Can you imagine the sitting right on a beach, the warm sun shining down on you, relaxing you. It's not too hot, not too cool, but just right the way you want it to be perfectly warming your body making you feel comforted and secure and peaceful. Focus on your breathing and let your breath follow the pattern of the ocean waves inhaling slowly and as the waves flow back into the ocean, you exhale with it letting the waves carry your stress and worries away with the healing waters.

Just listen to the soft music for ten minutes and allow yourself to just BE.... If your mind starts to chatter once again just redirect your focus back to your breath and to the soft music with the ocean waves.

When this video ends you will open your eyes and your spirit will feel refreshed and you will be ready to take on your day whatever it may bring. If you start to feel stressed and anxious throughout the day know that you can always close your eyes and come back to this very moment where you felt relaxed and calm. Feel free to come back here as many times as you like to calm your spirit. It is like taking a nice breath of fresh air.

I send you peace and blessings,PolarB ;)
