GETTING OUT OF YOUR HEAD AND INTO YOUR BODY

Hey there!!!


It’s the New Year and what a great way to start my blog post this year by talking about how being in your body can change your daily life and activities.

I'm so excited to tell you about your body and how it can change your life beyond what you can imagine if you let it! That's what this post is all about. Let’s discuss it then.

Getting out of your head and into your body can change everything.


You might be thinking, "How can that be? I'm already in my body."


You're not. You're in a headspace, a mental space, a place of worry and anxiety. You're not feeling the ground beneath your feet or the breeze on your skin; you're not hearing the birds sing or feeling the sun on your face. Instead, you're just noticing these things—and maybe even judging them as good or bad depending on how they make you feel (or how you think they make others feel).


Your body is far more than just a vehicle for getting around: it's an essential part of who you are. And yet so often we treat it like an afterthought—we don't notice how our bodies feel until they hurt or something goes wrong with them, at which point we may respond with fear instead of curiosity (which is what keeps us from truly experiencing life). Or worse yet: we ignore our bodies altogether! We all have thoughts running through our minds all day long—some good and some bad. I know how it feels to be stuck in your head, and I know how hard it can be to get out of it. I bet you're thinking "but how?" or "what if I can't?" But don't worry—you totally can! And this article is here to help you do just that.


Why Getting Out Of Your Head And Into Your Body Can Change Everything


Many of us do not know what that means, well that’s okay! You're not alone. When you work to reconnect with your body, you’ll start seeing some crazy benefits. A deeper sense of presence and aliveness makes daily life more vibrant. Do you agree? By getting out of your head and into your body, you'll have more energy and feel happier. So why not give it a try?


Breath Work


How do we do that? I want you to think about where you’re breathing and how you are breathing. As everyone experiences, my mind can constantly be on and kicked on, you know. And when I get into that space I want to reconnect with my body.


Now, let’s do just that. I want you to take a few deep breaths and I want you to take a nice and slow first one. You can count slowly in your head for four seconds then let the breath out slowly for another four seconds. Keep going and take slow deep breaths. That’s the key. I want you to slow down and think about where the air is going, where that breath is going. Is it filling your lungs? Can you feel it in your head? Sometimes I feel the hair on the back of my neck standing up. Do you feel the same? You can breathe that breath into different areas of your body, start to wake up, your nervous system, and get it kicked on so that you can get connected with your body again and you can feel all the wonderful things that this human-machine has to offer.


Reinforcing proper breathing patterns

Be intentful with your breathing. A slow, steady breathing pattern enhances core stability, helps improve tolerance to high-intensity exercise, and reduces the risk of muscle fatigue and injury. Taking balanced, equal breaths should be your goal. A good way to practice balanced breathing is to take a deep inhale, count to four, and then release a deep exhale to the same count. . Additional benefits to deep breathing, it helps to foster a sense of calm, reduce stress, and anxiety levels, and lower blood pressure. In fact, deep breathing is the basis for all meditative and mindfulness practices. And can help you to make lifestyle choices that are associated with better health.


When you focus your attention on the movement of your breath, you learn to control it. You become more efficient when breathing and more grounded, even in stressful situations. As soon as your concentration is on your breath, you create momentum in the right direction. The breath is a stabilizer and something that can be done anywhere because it is with you always.


Yet so many of us don't know how. which is why we've created this article to help you learn natural breathing techniques to feel more comfortable and relaxed.

I highly suggest you give it a try at least once. If nothing else, it will show you that there are things in this world that can have an almost instantaneous impact on your mental and physical state beyond buying a handheld device or a pharmaceutical. It offers an alternative approach to finding peace of mind… one that actually helps you find what is missing in your own body and mind. I think we could all use a little more peace in our day-to-day lives; all too often stress has become the modern-day norm. This breathing exercise aims to reduce stress levels and help us “reconnect” with the here and now without having to leave home or spend money.


Let's get you inspired this new year and to the next level of your life @Fearless Revolution! Watch out for my next blog.
