Hands up for those who can say they never feel stressed? Not many of you right? We all handle things differently. Somebody gets stressed just by missing a train and somebody gets stressed only when major issues appear in their life. However, as we go day after day these small things pile up and one day they have an impact somewhere. Whether that is back pain, skin issues or much more serious and difficult illnesses. My mum always says that all illnesses are caused originally by stress.
And what do you think at those moments when you are felling under pressure? My first thoughts are always like I wish I could be on a relaxing beach and this all would go away? Well, that is one way to do that and probably pretty expensive way. Or you can start to meditate but the question is how many of us has got that luxury of spare time for doing this? Some people to chose to go to GP and get some medication but that is definitely my least favourite choice as I believe there are no pills that make this go away.
Well, I have a solution for you. You may or may not have seen on my snapchat (evaglamazon) last week that I had a meeting in Notting Hill. I did not tell you much about it but it was my consultation with lovely Katie Brindle. She is a Chinese Physician and one of the most passionate people I met. She loves Chinese medicine and her job and it is so refreshing to meet somebody with that sort of attitude and love for something.
Katie put together her knowledge of eastern world medicine and designed HAYO’U method. Now that is perfect for somebody with two jobs, social life and busy lifestyle like myself. All you need is few minutes a day to get rid of the stress that has piled up inside your body. And you can do this thanks to one minute rituals. They are so quick and easy to do and you will find short videos and demonstrations on Katie’s website. It is set of drumming, shaking and breathing techniques to help you literally to shake the stress out of your body.
I have been doing this now for few days and what a great way to start a day! You can do it whilst your coffee machine is on or even when you are getting ready in the bathroom. It is very easy to fit it even in a busy day. My favourite technique is the breathing. I feel people underestimate the power of correct breathing and Katie advised me to try big deep breaths and when you breathe out just imagine big smile across your abdomen. I would never think something this small could have such a huge impact. Now this is something you can practice even on the way to work. You will feel energised, fresh and ready to go.
You can find all the information here where Katie explains the benefits and what is hidden behind each technique. And if there are non-believers in Chinese medicine just think about how many years this has been practiced and the results. Katie will be also launching soon range of products that can help you to improve your health even more so keep an eye on it.
It will not kill anybody to at least try. I will definitely include these short rituals in my morning routine as it makes me feel good. And isn’t that what we all want after all?
Ruce na horu ti, kteri mohou rict, ze nikdy neciti zadny stres? Moc vas neni, ze? Kazdy reaguje na problemy jinak. Nekdo nevydrzi napriklad fakt, ze mu ujel vlak a druhy se stresuje, az jsou problem mnohem vetsi. Kazdopadne jak dny ubihaji, tak nase telo a mysl je neustale vystaveno problemum, stresu apod. A za nejaky cas se tyhle momenty bohuzel nekde musi objevit. Ja napriklad hned pocitim tezky tyden ve svych zadech, ktere zacnou neskutecne bolet. Obcas je to neprijemna unavana, ale nekteri z vas urcite znaji lidi kolem sebe, kteri trpi zavaznejsimi problemy. Jak rika moje maminka…vsechny nemoci zacinaji hlavne kvuli stresu a myslim, ze na tom bude neco pravdy.
No a co si v takove momenty prejete? Mate predstavu jak se stresu zbavit? Ja se vzdy snazim myslenkama utect na krasnou plaz, predstavit si zapadajici slunce a zkratka krasne uklidnijici momenty. Ale to je ve vetsine pripadu nemozne. Nejde se jenom tak sbalit, odejit z prace a vyhodit problemy oknem. A co treba meditace? Ale kdo ma dneska tolik casu?
No myslim, ze mam pro vas reseni. Nekteri vas, co me sleduji na snapchatu mozna vite, ze jsem mela nedavno schuzku v Notting Hill. Mela jsem konzultaci s uzasnou Katie Brindle. Katie se venuje uz patnact let Cinske medicine a je opravdu nadherne se potkat s nekym, ktery ma v sobe tolik vasne a lasky pro to, co dela.
Katie prisla na trh s metodou Hayo’u. Spojila sve znalosti vychodni mediciny a vytvorila minutove ritualy, ktere pomahaji se zbavit stresu. Na svych strankach demostruje v kratkem videu jak tyhle ritualy provadet. Jedna se opravdu o par minut denne, ktere vam pomohou nastartovat den pozitivne a citit se lepe. Muj nejoblibenejsi ritual je dychani. Priznavam se, ze obcas zapominam na to jak napriklad spravne dychani muze cloveku ulevit. Je opravdu jednoduche tyto ritualy zaradit i do takoveho dne, ktere mam ja.
Staci praktikovat dychani a ostatni ritualy pri ranni hygiene, ci kdyz cekate nez se vam uvari kava. A v tom je to kouzlo. V dnesni uspechane dobe je cas jedna z nejcenejsich veci. Ja ritualy provadim uz nekolik dni a muj den hned zacina lepe. Za zkousku prece nic nedate.
