Deadlines, schedules and routine takes it’s toll on most of us. With never ending lists, many of us plan to check in somewhere to de-stress but never get around to it. There just seem too many tasks to be done before we can take out time for ourselves. With so much on our mind, output slows down and tiredness sets in. Well here are some simple ways to increase productivity.
One of the easiest thing to neglect when facing deadlines is nutritious food. The more we let go of eating the more our body gets depleted of minerals. Minerals like magnesium play an important role in the active transport of calcium and potassium ions across cell membranes. Lack of magnesium leads to muscle aches, anxiety, and trouble sleeping – all signs of increasing stress in the body. The best option it to increase the amount of magnesium rich foods in your daily diet or opt for magnesium supplements. Another way is to externally provide the body with magnesium by soaking in an epsom salt solution. Epsom salts contain a mix of magnesium and sulphates and are easily absorbed through the skin where they immediately go to work inside our bodies. One great way is to add epsom salts to your daily bath or better still opt for a floating session at Beyond Rest Brisbane . All you do is float in a floatation tank, containing a super-saturated Epsom salt solution, which is about 25cm deep. This creates an environment similar to that of the Dead Sea, letting you float effortlessly on the surface of the water. Net result is a state of calmness and relaxation.
When we chant, we continue to repeat a particular word for a short period of time. Chanting is the use of sound to increase our vibrations. Studies have shown that when we increase our vibration, our mind absorbs better and our bodies function at optimum health. Most chanting uses a mantra or set of words to produce a desired outcome. The most common and easiest being the sound of “om” .This is the universal and the basic sound and repeating it for even a short duration of 5 minutes produces vibrations that have a physical affect on the body, by slowing down the nervous system and calming the mind, thus leading to a more productive mind and body.
