It’s that age old saying – put your own oxygen mask on before you help others. Self-care is just that – it’s looking after yourself so that you can better look after others and achieve all you want to in your life.
Self-care relates to supporting physical and emotional wellbeing as well as good mental health. As we all strive to keep up with the fast pace of life, the continually changing environments, increased workloads and full schedules, we need to understand the importance of looking after ourselves.
Self-care should not be another thing on the to-do list, it should be part of your everyday life. Good habits built-in to everyday situations and behaviours – a mindset that understands you are worthy of care.
It’s not selfish to put yourself first. In Pranic Healing we focus on giving service – this includes service to ourselves as well as others.
We want to delve into three effective pathways to self-care, which Pranic Healing can support.
1) Effectively managing stress and anxiety
Physical illness can be caused by a build up of stress and anxiety which negatively affects our energy body. When the body and mind is under stress, it cannot perform as well as it usually would, leaving us feeling depleted, tired and can even lower our immune system. It makes sense then, to do all we can to combat both the causes and effects of stress. Pranic Healing helps on all levels, from removing the negative effects of stress on the body, to in turn, promoting physical and emotional wellbeing.
2) Nurturing a calm mind through meditation
When we are running at a million miles an hour through life, distracted by technology and an always ‘on’ culture, our minds become overactive. This can lead to feelings of stress, worry and overwhelm – if this is you, it’s time to get off the carousel. Taking time to meditate is vital and the benefits are huge. Resting your mind promotes a sense of calm and inner peace, a chance to reconnect with yourself and the world around you in
a mindful way. If you would like to experience additional benefits of positivity, spiritual connection, clarity and prosperity, the Pranic Healing Meditation on Twin Hearts is worth trying. Give it a go and see how you feel afterwards.
3) Embracing good physical health habits
Our bodies are temples being the vehicle for the soul. It’s essential we look after ourselves physically and maintain good health, appreciating what we have been blessed with and nurturing it in all ways. If you do not already have some good, regular health habits in place, now is the time to take action. Even if you choose just one to begin with, it’s a great start. There are many habits to aspire to in your day to day life which contribute to optimum physical health – healthy eating, getting enough sleep, exercising regularly, getting out in nature.
Pranic Healing supports these so well, since it can help to build the strong body you need – there are even treatments to improve performance during exercise and energy levels.
