How to feel better by breathing

Happy December angels!  8dd5782846607393551a19ee09a96b8f

I can’t believe it’s that time again. I know I say it every year, but truly, time is speeding up more and more each instance I look at the calendar on December 1.

It seems to fly by faster and faster… I mean, geez, at this rate, before I’m 60 time will be going so fast I’ll probably be making Christmas cookies on Easter! lol.

At any rate, it’s likely, and most probable that we all will get a little stressed out during the holidays.

This is some of the best and most manageable advice from a trusted source, that we could all use to help with a variety of life issues, like; 

  • give us a boost of energy when needed instead of grabbing a cup of coffee,
  • or to relax when stressed or if feeling panicky and/or anxious,
  • even for digestive disorders… (uhhh…especially after Thanksgiving, and pretty much during the entire holiday season)…ummmyeah. 

And it’s all based on one of the most natural things we do all the time –mostly without even a thought about it — Breathing. womansea

Yes, it’s just breathing.  But it’s the way we do it that can have the desired effect. These breathing exercises will help a variety of issues.

And what’s better, these techniques will not only help during the holidays, but all year through.

It’s from Dr. Weil, and I, for one, trust Dr. Weil’s  advice.

Dr. Weil is a well known Harvard trained  physician, and successful author, spokesperson, and broadly described “guru” for holistic health and integrative medicine, he’s well trusted in the medical community and has some excellent advice for more natural therapies.

The following is from his website:

Three Breathing Exercises

Since breathing is something we can control and regulate, it is a useful tool for achieving a relaxed and clear state of mind. I recommend three breathing exercises to help relax and reduce stress:
The Stimulating Breath, The 4-7-8 Breathing Exercise (also called the Relaxing Breath), and Breath Counting.
Try each of these breathing techniques and see how they affect your stress and anxiety levels.
Exercise 1:

The Stimulating Breath (also called the Bellows Breath)

The Stimulating Breath is adapted from yogic breathing techniques. Its aim is to raise vital energy and increase alertness.
  • Inhale and exhale rapidly through your nose, keeping your mouth closed but relaxed. Your breaths in and out should be equal in duration, but as short as possible. This is a noisy breathing exercise.
  • Try for three in-and-out breath cycles per second. This produces a quick movement of the diaphragm, suggesting a bellows. Breathe normally after each cycle.
  • Do not do for more than 15 seconds on your first try. Each time you practice the Stimulating Breath, you can increase your time by five seconds or so, until you reach a full minute.
If done properly, you may feel invigorated, comparable to the heightened awareness you feel after a good workout. You should feel the effort at the back of the neck, the diaphragm, the chest and the abdomen. Try this diaphragmatic breathing exercise the next time you need an energy boost and feel yourself reaching for a cup of coffee.

Exercise 2:
The 4-7-8 (or Relaxing Breath) Exercise

This breathing exercise is utterly simple, takes almost no time, requires no equipment and can be done anywhere. Although you can do the exercise in any position, sit with your back straight while learning the exercise. Place the tip of your tongue against the ridge of tissue just behind your upper front teeth, and keep it there through the entire exercise. You will be exhaling through your mouth around your tongue; try pursing your lips slightly if this seems awkward.
  • Exhale completely through your mouth, making a whoosh sound.
  • Close your mouth and inhale quietly through your nose to a mental count of four.
  • Hold your breath for a count of seven.
  • Exhale completely through your mouth, making a whoosh sound to a count of eight.
  • This is one breath. Now inhale again and repeat the cycle three more times for a total of four breaths.
Note that you always inhale quietly through your nose and exhale audibly through your mouth. The tip of your tongue stays in position the whole time. Exhalation takes twice as long as inhalation. The absolute time you spend on each phase is not important; the ratio of 4:7:8 is important. If you have trouble holding your breath, speed the exercise up but keep to the ratio of 4:7:8 for the three phases. With practice you can slow it all down and get used to inhaling and exhaling more and more deeply.
This exercise is a natural tranquilizer for the nervous system. Unlike tranquilizing drugs, which are often effective when you first take them but then lose their power over time, this exercise is subtle when you first try it but gains in power with repetition and practice. Do it at least twice a day. You cannot do it too frequently. Do not do more than four breaths at one time for the first month of practice. Later, if you wish, you can extend it to eight breaths. If you feel a little lightheaded when you first breathe this way, do not be concerned; it will pass.
Once you develop this technique by practicing it every day, it will be a very useful tool that you will always have with you. Use it whenever anything upsetting happens – before you react. Use it whenever you are aware of internal tension. Use it to help you fall asleep. This exercise cannot be recommended too highly. Everyone can benefit from it.

Exercise 3:
Breath Counting

If you want to get a feel for this challenging work, try your hand at breath counting, a deceptively simple technique much used in Zen practice.
Sit in a comfortable position with the spine straight and head inclined slightly forward. Gently close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. Then let the breath come naturally without trying to influence it. Ideally it will be quiet and slow, but depth and rhythm may vary.
  • To begin the exercise, count “one” to yourself as you exhale.
  • The next time you exhale, count “two,” and so on up to “five.”
  • Then begin a new cycle, counting “one” on the next exhalation.
Never count higher than “five,” and count only when you exhale. You will know your attention has wandered when you find yourself up to “eight,” “12,” even “19.”
Try to do 10 minutes of this form of meditation.

🙂

Thanks Dr. Weil, and thank YOU, for reading. To learn more about Dr. Weil and his suggestions for better health, go to his website.

Natural Holistic Remedies for Anxiety, Stress and Depression

Hi there! Thanks for being here and reading my articles. This article is one of the many homeless orphans from my Yahoo repertoire since its closing, and my blog seemed like the best home for it.   Please be patient, as I’m still updating links and adding new places for them. There are tons to weed through, so if a link doesn’t work, please know I am working on it 🙂 Your patience is much appreciated!

So, on with the holistic remedies for anxiety stress and depression! (lol…I may have to use some of these modalities myself dealing with all this stress of moving all my articles!!)

we dont see things as they are we see them as we are

There are so many natural and holistic remedies for all types of maladies these days that it is difficult to weed through all the bad or mis-information strewn across the web.

This series of articles, “Natural Holistic Remedies” will address only the “best of”, either through personal experience or gathered from trusted sources. I’ve been studying these types of holistic cures and aids for over 25 years and have discovered many new concepts as well as debunking some older (and some newer ones too). See the first article in the series Natural Holistic Remedies for Shingles here. (non working link) also check out : Essential oils for depression, using aromatherapy as a mood regulator;

More and more these days, plants are finding a medicinal purpose in our lives, people like natural cures rather than subjecting themselves to harsh man-made chemicals and pills, also keep in mind that around 30% of the ingredients that are added in conventional medicine are extracted from natural resources like plants and herbs. Holistic remedies are becoming more commonplace in the medical field and even many scientists after years of testing are concluding that alternative medicine is making headway as a tool in the “every-man’s preventative medicine chest”.

Anxiety, stress and depression are almost at record levels in our country, who knows if it’s because of the economy, the stressful atmospheres and workplaces we subject ourselves to, or even home-life? It could be a combination of all of these things. In any case, we are an over anxious, depressed society in desperate need of fresh air, nature, a good diet, some fun time, and most certainly restful sleep. A balance of these can make a world of difference.

Most people don’t think about it, but our diets, how we sleep, how much we work, to how much water we drink, especially with an excess of preservatives, sugar, nasty sugar substitutes, coffee, alcohol and/or junk foods can add to major imbalances in our mental and physical states of being. No matter the cause, there is hope…and without resorting to some of those more dangerous synthetic drugs.

Anxiety, stress and depression can have real life consequences and devastating effects on our spirits, minds and bodies that affect not only the entire scope of our lives, but those around us as well.

Our bodies house our whole self...including our spirit, and we should all treat our bodies with the deep respect we deserve, and we can feel better inside and out.

This is dealing with our problems ‘holistically” -including the “whole body” – mind, body and spirit- together, by using natural remedies and holistic aids, we are honoring our “whole-selves”.

First —–>Focus on the things you are thinking about…

Take notice of your thoughts fully, not in an over analyzing way, but notice when they get negative or self deprecating…or even if you notice anxious thoughts trying to rush in, just STOP immediately.

Take a deep breath.

Take another….

And another….

Then smile and tell yourself how wonderful and magical you are.

You are so special, and unique.

There is only ONE of you,

and there will only ever be ONE of you.

How beautiful, fantastic and glorious!

How marvelous that each of us are unique and spectacular creatures, all of us with individual characteristics that make each one of us so special, no two are alike !

And know this…….You are so loved.

No matter what…you are still loved.

Now, go on with your fabulous self and make each day count.

Do at least one good thing for yourself every single day.

And be sure read on to find more ways to combat anxiety and depression naturally.

 

Aromatherapy and Essential Oils for anxiety & depression:

Stop and Smell the Roses/ Get Refreshed by Nature's Energies

Essential oils are amazing. I’ve been using them and studying them for over 25 years, and still have only a small working knowledge of their wondrous attributes. They can help with so many things it’s no wonder they have been used for centuries, and knowledge of their uses have been passed down for ages .

Those little drops of miracles pack more punch in one drop than any other form of natural medicine.

There are many ways to use these wonderful little helpers for anxiety and depression.

If you’ve never used essential oils before, read a primer I wrote on essential oils, what they are and the difference between therapeutic grade and most “on the market” essential oils called Many Helpful Suggestions on Uses of Essential Oils  before delving into this article, it will save you lots of questions.

To see how essential oils can help with depression and anxiety see: Can Essential Oils Help with Depression & Anxiety? Using Aromatherapy as a Mood Regulator.

More natural ways to fight anxiety and depression:

 -Exercise!walking © Andrzej Burak

There’s nothing like the euphoric feeling of natural endorphins coursing through your system after physical exertion and exercise, they don’t call it “runner’s high” for nothing. And you don’t even have to actually run to get that “runner’s high” either…any form of physical exertion that gets your heart pumping will work wonders for your over-all morale, and a regular exercise program can  permanently change your state of mind, while bettering your body and spirit. Just getting outside and walking through the park can add a great deal of happiness to your day.

See my article “Feel Great, Lose Weight and Boost Metabolism” for more info.

 

– Herbal Supplements:

There are an abundance of resources on herbal remedies and supplements for anxiety and depression, and most I’ve seen are pretty good. Some herbs I know of off-hand that work well for stress, depression and anxiety include;

St. John’s Wort, Lavender, Chamomile tea, Valerian, Passionflower, Ginseng, and Lemon balm to name a few.

St Johns Wort can help with mild depression but medication and remedies can only help with the symptoms of depression — not the cause. Talk to a professional therapist who can help deal with the cause to find out the root causes of your depression and anxiety.
 Also…..Some of the Bach Flower Remedies deal with anxiety as well – you could check out
http://www.bachcentre.com/centre/remedie…
http://www.bachflower.com/7_Groups.htm

-Omega-3 fatty acids:

Many doctors – whether Holistic, Alternative, Eastern or Western types- recommend adding Omega-3 fatty acids to our diets…it’s great for EVERYONE!!! Whether through supplements or part of a healthy diet consisting of fatty fish 2-to-3 times per week. Omega-3 Fatty acids are helpful for aiding depression, and many times are used as treatment for ADD-ADHD Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, diabetes, High Blood Pressure, Arthritis, and many other maladies as well.

 

Emotional Freedom Technique

Many have anxiety and depression and have used an alternative therapy called Emotional Freedom Technique and it has really worked for many, and helped loads of people who rave about it. It’s very good at getting rid of all kinds of negative emotions and dealing with all kinds of issues quickly. It does sound bizarre but does work. Might be something that can help you.

 

– Diet & Nutrition:

Most of us don’t think about our food intake much, just when we’re hungry or thirsty, and what we eat or drink can have a large impact on not only our physical bodies and minds, but our mental states and spiritual states as well.

First and foremost…DRINK PLENTY OF WATER  everyday!

This is great for your entire body, mind and soul! Pure water is amazing for you. A great way to decide how much water your body actually needs is to figure your weight, cut it in half, and drink that many ounces of water per day. For instance, if you are 100 pounds, drink 50 oz of water per day. There are tons of resources across the world that are easy to find on the benefits of staying hydrated, and how water is helping literally every single cell in your body.

When it comes to our diet—- sugar, sugar substitutes, coffee, alcohol and/or junk foods are the first things we should cut out or at least try to cut back on majorly to bring our “spirit’s up”. These tend to give us a false sense of well-being for very short time periods and we end up crashing…you know the drill… “gotta’ have that coffee in the morning to get me going”…isn’t going to really work after a couple hours.

Wouldn’t you rather have sustained energy and a good feeling about what you’re putting into your bodies? Try tea first thing, and add a vitamin packed smoothie or protein shake in the morning. It’s true that eating lots of nuts, beans and vegetables high in magnesium, especially leafy green vegetables and avoiding spicy foods can aid in fighting depression.

So yeah, I know it’s tough because everything seems to have it, but no sugar, and especially NO processed foods, alcohol or super spicy foods. And be sure to eat lots of fresh veges and fruits along with proteins in a balanced way. There are literally thousands of sites dedicated to what types of food help with anxiety and depression. A quick search will give you hundreds of balanced diet plans.

A wonderful website I found on treating anxiety and depression with nutrition and diet is at; Diet Treatment for Anxiety and Depressionhttp://www.ctds.info/anxiety_depression.html, also a great book

is; Nutrition Against Disease by Dr. Roger J. Williams.

 

lemonyellowcitrus

Our bodies house our spirit’s and we should all treat our bodies with more respect, we would feel better inside and out.

This is dealing with our problems ‘holistically” -including the “whole body” – mind, body and spirit- together, by using natural remedies and holistic aids, we are honoring our “whole-selves”.

And never give up hope, you are definitely NOT alone, many, many people deal with this everyday, and a wide variety of websites, info. and help is out there.

Can Essential Oils Help with Depression & Anxiety? Using Aromatherapy as a Mood Regulator

—–> Before using any essential oils, please read this helpful primer: Uses of Essential Oils:

Originally from my Yahoo repertoire, I decided to add this gem to my blog. Happy new year!Essential Oils for the Different Types of Skin

With this article, I’ll show you how it’s possible to employ pure therapeutic grade essential oils to help ease depression and lessen anxiety, simply and naturally.

First things first, if you’ve never used essential oils before, read a primer I wrote on essential oils, what they are and the difference between therapeutic grade and most “on the market” essential oils called “Many Helpful Suggestions on Uses of Essential Oils” before delving into this article, it will save you lots of questions. (Since my links/articles are still orphaned and looking for homes, for the purposes of safety, and if you are not familiar with essential oils please read Ananda Apothecary’s beginner’s guides to aromatherapy here before using any essential oils. 🙂

More and more these days, plants are finding a medicinal purpose in our lives, people like natural cures rather than subjecting themselves to harsh man-made chemicals and pills.

A depressed emotional state is a common reason for using complementary and alternative therapies today. A wide range of psychological, physical, and energetic issues can lead to feelings of depression and a pervasive outlook of negativity. Moreover, once in a state of depression, patterns can arise that make relief all the more difficult to find. The use of essential oils for uplifting the psyche and spirit is becoming more widespread because of the oils’ broad and dramatic effects. While the oils themselves may not directly affect the underlying cause of depression, they may help individuals break free from depressive cycles – they may provide the impetus to ‘get off the couch’, so to speak, and begin creating long lasting change.”Ananda Apothecary

Can essential oils help with anxiety?

The short answer is yes. The how and why are a bit more scientific, but suffice to say that it’s true what they say, “your nose knows”. You’ve definitely experienced this before. A good example would be smelling a freshly baked apple pie and remembering Grandma’s house in the country when you were just a kid. That’s your limbic system at work. Basically, your sense of smell is the shortest and quickest way into your brain, including your memory banks, through the limbic system ( which is the seat of the emotional center and is partly responsible for our our emotional reaction to something, our fight or flight response, our hormonal secretions, motivation, pain reflex and our mood fluctuations). Some essential oils have thousands of chemicals contained within a tiny drop, and some have only a few, but they all have purposes, and can all cause strong reactions when inhaled or used on the skin.

Can essential oils help with depression?

Again, the short answer is yes they can, in the same way they can help with anxiety, essential oils can also aid in reducing melancholy and heightening happy feelings or uplifting your mood by pure science of chemistry. Just knowing what chemicals to use, and that they are pure therapeutic grade essential oils can really ‘make or break’ the deal. Essential oils are really just natural science by God, given to us as “medicine” whether it be for the body (physical), mind (mental), or spirit (emotional and spiritual).

The best therapeutic grade essential oils to use to lift your spirits and put you in a better mood are as follows:

Essential Oils that are Antidepressant mood regulators:

Rose or rose otto – the best ‘heart opener’, aids with joy, uplifts and restores balance
Orange– any citrus oil uplifts and brightens your mood, they are ‘sun in a bottle’, grounding, nourishing, energizing
Bergamot – relaxes nerves and refreshes the spirit
Geranium – like rose, wonderful for work of the heart
Mandarin – another citrus uplifter, but with a more mellow property, works wonders on children
Lemon – super sunshine in a bottle, very uplifting, grounding, nourishing, energizing
Neroli (orange blossom) – comforts the mind and heart, natural tranquillizer for shock, depression or anxiety
Chamomiles – grounding and uplifting

Essential Oils for Anxiety or Stress

Lavender – calming, regenerating, balancing
Chamomiles – remarkable calming effects
Clary Sage – calming, relaxing, balancing,
Geranium – calming, balancing, protecting
Rose or rose otto
Mandarin – wonderful for calming children too
Lemon – refreshing and gentle calming
Bergamot- relaxing, uplifting
Vetiver -very calming, centering, and stabilizing
Neroli– nourishing to spirit and soul, cooling and calming
Palmarosa – calming and uplifting nerves, reduces anxiety
Sweet Marjoram – sedative and toning, immediate calming effect
Frankincense– warming, calming, quieting, awakens the spirit, centering, meditative, new enlightenment of self and encourages an unconditional love
Coriander- healing and anti-inflammatory, aids feelings of security to anyone who is not grounded and calms the spirit

How to use these essential oils for anxiety or depression

There are a variety of ways you can use these essential oils to aid in mood regulation. Two being: INHALATION AND TOPICAL APPLICATION.

Diffusers-Inhalation

One of the simplest ways is to use a diffuser for your personal or work space. Most are quite simple to use either by adding water and a few drops of essential oil, and plugging it in, or by a candle warming the water and oil mixture. You can find them just about anywhere now, from the grocery store to ebay and Amazon , aromatherapy stores or specialty stores. Click Here To Visit Diffuser World.

NebulizersInhalation

There are also nebulizers which are even better at dispersing essential oils into the air.

Car DiffusersInhalation

These plug right into your cigarette lighter or extra power source in your dash or console of your car. Take the fresh scent with you and brighten up your day instead of complaining about traffic. After diffusing something like lemon or peppermint in your car I guarantee you’ll spark right up and have a smile on your face.

Topical Application:

Best used by adding essential oils to an unscented lotion, aloe vera gel or diluted with an oil, for example, getting a massage.

Straight application:

Although this method is not recommended often as essential oils are potent and may be too strong for some people. Many are sensitive to the extreme potency of a therapeutic grade essential oil, but if you’re feeling brave and have used essential oils before (especially Lavender, one of the safest out there) then feel free to use a couple drops in your palms and rub together to release the scent. You can dab it under your nose, rub a couple drops into your wrists or the like. I would only try this with the following oils:

Lavender, Rose, Neroli, Geranium, Lemon, Mandarin, (almost any citrus oil, but beware citrus oils are phototoxic; meaning don’t wear them in the sun)

Massage:

There is so much I could say about the wonders of massage…but I don’t want to lose you so I’ll just say that if you can get one, DO! They are the best preventative medicine available to us and with the use of essential oils added to your massage lotion, gel or oil, you won’t believe the miracles that can happen. Just ask any Massage Therapist or “Raindrop Technique Therapist” and you’ll get an ear-full of how magical a massage can be. If your loved one is giving the loving massage, use a MAXIMUM of, or no more than 8-10 drops per oz. as essential oils are very potent. It’s better to use less and add more if needed. Just choose your carrier oil, gel or unscented lotion and add your choice of therapeutic grade essential oils and mix well.

Remember, it’s always better to try than to give up, so smile and know someone is thinking of you and wishes the very best for your health and well-being!
