Breathing Meditation

Every day of our lives we experience some form of stress, and at different levels. You could be driving home from work and get stuck in traffic, thereby changing your plans. That can cause stress.

Sometimes, we have so much to do and so many responsibilities that we forget to slow down and take care of ourselves. We often neglect ourselves for others which can also cause stress.

Breathing meditation has immeasurable benefits, and is widely used to relieve the daily stress we face. Breathing meditation is an effective way to reduce stress, lower blood pressure, and improve the immune system. Breathing meditation has also been used to help people break bad habits such as smoking.

Meditation promotes an inner balance and calms the mind and the body. Once you are relaxed, focus on your breathing and slow it down to the point where you are in a deep meditative state. After a short period of breathing meditation, you feel renewed and the anxiety and stress is either reduced or eliminated. Note that it will take a few sessions to get the technique just right, but it is worth the effort to work towards obtaining significant stress relief on the days when you are being overwhelmed by the many responsibilities of your life.

In order for breathing meditation to be effective, it requires you to engage in this practice on a daily basis. The more you practice breathing meditation, the better you will become at relaxing and calming your mind. You can do this breathing exercise at home, at work, or while traveling. All you need is a quiet place. While traveling, you can put on ear phones to block out noise.

No matter what you are doing during the course of the day, take ten minutes to quiet your mind in order to relieve whatever stress or anxiety you are experiencing. Just as you take care of others’ needs, it is just as important to concentrate on your own well being. Give breathing meditation a try.

Improving Sleep Reduces Stress

Did you know that when you don't get adequate sleep, your body and your emotions are not in the best shape to fend off stress?

Two channels that robs people of restful sleep is insomnia and snoring. Insomnia is a big problem for many people. It can caused by many factors such as physical pain (ex: headaches, arthritis), breathing problems, menopause, substance abuse, worrying....the list goes on. Snoring can be caused by a variety of factors as well but the main reason is poor muscle tone in the tongue and throat which causes airway problems leading to snoring.

Both insomnia and snoring can cause health problems. Sleep deprivation as a result of insomnia decreases your ability to function throughout your day and insomnia can also lead to memory loss and other mental problems. Snoring is so serious that if left unchecked, can actually cause heart problems and strokes.

I discovered two state of the art devices that each treat insomnia and snoring holistically without any side effects, thereby providing you with the help you need to reduce stress caused by these conditions:

Chi Dream Sleep Aid: This device has many benefits and is quite effective for insomnia:

* Portable & great to take on vacation
* Vibrating Micro Massage on the Wrist
* Improved Circulation
This Sleep Aid contains a vibrating motor that provides a comfortable micro massage that helps to improve circulation thereby reducing stress. The vibrating pulse provide acupuncture pressure points to improve circulation and invoke sleep.

Chi Snore Stopper: This revolutionary device reduces the frequency and level of snoring

The snore stopper detects snoring, and then a gentle and safe 4-5 second electrical pulse will be sent automatically to stimulate nerves on the skin WITHOUT waking you up. The brain receives a signal, sensing this nerve stimulation and you subconsciously change your posture of sleep. The result is a reduction in snoring - Results in 1-2 weeks with daily use.

Don't allow Insomnia, Snoring or any other speed problems cause you stress.

Oxidative Stress

Oxidative Stress is not something that many people know about. While oxidation is a part of our body’s normal process - combining elements of oxygen, which cause free radicals to produce. The problem with free radicals is they destroy the healthy cells of the body. This is why it's important to consume antioxidants day.

I wrote an article about oxidative stress that I would recommend people read because it goes into further detail.

I have seriously been eating poorly lately so I know my body is under severe oxidative stress. As a result, I've decided to go on a 5 Day Nutritive Cleanse (products are from Young Living) which will cleanse my body of toxins and remove the cravings for bad food. I started the fast today and I'm detailing my experiences while on the fast on my Fresh Radiant Skin blog.

I suggest that anyone who eats poorly do a cleanse quarterly. Not only do I suggest that, the experts do as well. The 5 Day cleanse will take care of the oxidative stress my body has been under. Part of the cleanse is to consume NingXa Red a super antioxidant drink along with therapeutic grade essential oils and NingXa Wolfberries which are high in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

Fight oxidative stress today ad restore a healthier you.

For the Love of Peppermint!

I never thought I’d be writing about loving peppermint. The candies always reminded me of old people. When I was younger my grandmothers always had peppermints on hand in church for when they got dry throat and started coughing LOL.

Ok all jokes aside I was introduced to Young Living Therapeutic Grade Peppermint Essential Oil about a week or so ago. Actually I was introduced to an array of oils manufactured by Young Living but I want to share my experience with each oil/product in a different post so as not to confuse anyone. Also, just a note that Therapeutic Grade is very pure and unlike what you find in the pharmacies or health food stores. That stuff is water compared to what I'm about to share.

I received my order of Peppermint Essential Oil on Saturday (April 4, 2009) and I couldn’t wait to use it because I have been experiencing seasonal allergies with tons of coughing, congestion and I even lost my sense of taste/smell for a couple of days. I will keep it short and sweet and straight to the point. Therapeutic Grade Peppermint Essential Oil is some POWERFUL stuff! Just one drop in the palm of the hand and inhaled was enough to pop my lungs wide open. The chest congestion I had been experiencing was significantly reduced with just one inhalation. Then to top that off, the Essential Oils Guide Book says that Peppermint Essential Oil can be used for sinus congestion. So, as per the instructions I applied one drop to my temples, forehead and back of my neck. What an amazing experience. Not only was I able to breathe much clearer, I slept better. It's as if my head was surround by a cool aura. I also used a drop of peppermint on the tip of my tongue. One drop on Saturday, One drop on Sunday and by Sunday night I completely had my sense of taste back!

The difference with the peppermint candies from my grandma’s days and this therapeutic grade essential oil of peppermint is dramatic. It’s not so much a sweet scent as it is a pure crisp freshness. I’ll not leave home without my peppermint!

If you are interested in experiencing the power of “For the Love of Peppermint” (sorry but I’m renaming it to this for personal reasons!), you can pick up Therapeutic Grade Peppermint Essential Oil at Young Living. You’ll need to subscribe to purchase with a distributor #. You can use distributor # 1066504. I hope you enjoy and benefit from it as much as I do.

Chi Health Products

For a few days I side tracked from a previous post which stated I would introduce the category and products available on Reviyve's Natural Stress Relief site. I already touched a bit on Magnet Therapy, Massage and Aromatherapy. While I am going to return to talking about our aromatherapy products, therapeutic essential oils and how they are beneficial, today I want to introduce you to our Chi Health Products.

Chi is short for and stands for Chinese "vital energy" so these products are basically alternative health products that the Chinese promote in their health practices. Just to give you a bit of background about traditional Chinese medicine - the Chinese believe that sicknesses and infirmities are attributed primarily to imbalances in the chi (vital life functions) of the body. Most people have heard of acupuncture which is a technique that helps to alleviate pain. The Chinese believe that the technique is actually restoring an imbalance which leads to the alleviation of pain.

While it is not determined that Chi Health Products are re-balancing specific imbalances, it is however determined that Chi Health Products are quite effective for alleviating pain and various other conditions in a safe manner.

At Reviyve's Natural Stress Relief Alternatives website, you will find a number of Chi Health Products that help to alleviate joint pain, neck pain and even help for sleep disorders.
