What Ayurveda says about stress?
Ayurveda asks us to live as healthy as much as possible to prevent, maintain or health or cure disease if we didn’t prevent before. This also involves our feelings, emotions and attitudes but this requires of course a work on oneself.
Mental and emotional stress is a silent killer.
Numerous researches have proven the negative impact of stress on the body, especially on the autonomic nervous system. In other words, the autonomic nervous system is the body’s conductor, regulating, with the help of the hormonal system, the functioning of the body’s organs.
In short, stress can have a negative impact on your physical well-being, medium and long term. This is the case for people with high blood pressure or emotional tachycardia and so many other diseases created all over the years by your non-taking care of. This is why, when stress is underestimated, these symptoms tend to become chronic and strongly weaken immunity.
Ayurvedic and yogic tools to heal from your stress
So in order for the body to return to balance, the parasympathetic system must be activated (this is the nervous system that encourages rest, energy conservation, absorption of nutrients that promote good health, it contributes to the regularity of the cardiovascular system…).
It is therefore necessary to relax and regenerate 😉
Some Yoga and Ayurveda anti-stress tools:
Observe your breath! If your breath is short take deep, slow abdominal breaths with long exhalations.
Therefore, poor breathing leads to poor cell nourishment, so they function less well and our metabolism suffers (fatigue, poor digestion, bad attitudes towards what comes up in our life…). In the long term, this is very detrimental.
The environment in which our cells are immersed is a determining factor for their health. If they are immersed in an environment that is poor in oxygen and overloaded with waste so they will not be able to do their work properly. Our organism is nothing more than a cluster of cells whose objective is to make it work. If this is not the case, the whole body will not function properly. We will then say that it is sick)
Sit comfortably with your back straight, feet on the floor, palms on your thighs and eyes closed. Take a deep breath and place your intention on the parts of the body where you feel tension. Ask each part to relax. Repeat 3 times or as needed with CONCENTRATION and CONFIDENT;
In case of long days in front of the computer, regularly look up at the sky and practice the eye exercise. (Without moving my head, I direct my eyes up, then down, to the right and left. Then I make circles with my eyes starting from the right and then the left). Stretch your body and take a short walk every 2 hours. Body is not made to stay seated more than 2 hours in a row.
And lean forward for a few moments, then back. Twist to the right and left and stretch upward.
Then, stretch your neck, from right to left, making a circle with your head.
To sum up, do all this in consciousness, that is to say that you have to pay attention to what you are doing, do not let your mind think about what you are going to do or should do in 5 minutes. Be there in consciousness with your body and your mind for better results.
And learn to take even 5 minutes for YOU and release your stress… And what is 5 minutes?…

Knowing how to take a BREAK … is to regenerate, sustain your health and love yourself for years.
