After 18-months of lockdowns and social distancing, it’s time to reconnect with the world. Although it’s a welcome relief, for many of us, stress levels remain high, and this can easily push our nervous system into fight or flight mode.
Whilst the adrenalin released is beneficial in times of danger, it’s not always ideal in everyday life.
As we connect with friends and family again, it’s important to find time for ourselves to decompress. Kylie, owner of BodyEthos explains that maintaining a health and fitness routine will help move this excess stress. “A daily meditation practice, as little as five minutes, can help calm the mind. When practiced in the morning it can have a huge impact on how you operate throughout the day. Simply taking a moment to reconnect to your heart centre will bring a sense of empathy and calm toward others.”
