5 Go-To

EMOTIONAL REJUVENATORS


Going to Sync Float in Park City has become a weekly ritual for me to rejuvenate, because of its unique way of tuning out the world and allowing the body to relax.

What’s a float tank?

Here’s what Sync says on their website…

“Float center is a spa-like setting specifically designed for float therapy. Float therapy, or floating, is done in a private float tank containing ten inches of water and over nine hundred pounds of magnesium sulfate, or Epsom salt. The high concentration of this anti-inflammatory salt allows the body to effortlessly float on the water’s surface—relieving joint pressure, allowing the spine and muscles to relax and lengthen, and bringing blood flow to injured areas.

Floating minimizes all external inputs—light, sound, temperature gradient, and in a sense, even gravity. This takes our focus away from processing our overstimulating world and instead gives energy to the body for physical healing and mental relaxation”

In the video I recorded during my last float, I show you what it’s like inside!

5 Go-To Rejuvenators… 

  • A tension releasing stretch routine…  Try this 8-Min simple routine that can be done in a chair and will open your chest and release tension in the upper back – 
  • Treat yourself to a warm bath and add relaxing Young Living essential oils (my favorite is lavender) to turn it into a spa treatment! A luxurious bath can feel like a luxury after a long day and help ease any aching muscles. You’ll feel relaxed, comforted and clean afterward!
  • Add a drop of a calming essential oil to your wrist or in a diffuser. Here are some of my favorite Young Living essential oils for anxiety…
    Lavender • Valerian • Jasmine • Bergamont • Basil• Chamomile • Rose • Ylang ylang • Clary sage • Geranium
  • Deep, rhythmic breathing. Join me in this 5-minute video where I guide you through the basics of nasal breathing, and awakening moves that use the technique.If you were to search for the life force in your body—if you wanted proof of life—it would be your breath. You can breathe hard, as you do when you’re exercising, or quietly as when you sleep; you can breathe consciously or unconsciously, but your breath is a rhythm that never stops.In a physical sense, the breath delivers oxygen, your body’s most constant requirement. But breath also is a conduit of emotions, of sexual vitality—of everything that we call spirit. In addition to keeping us alive and vital, the breath creates a connection between your outer environment and your inner self.
  • Take a meditative stroll in the great outdoors. Take five minutes to look closely at a flower. Study the details of its texture and the structure. By observing the smallest features of a flower or any object, you develop a sense of reverence. The flower becomes a little miracle. You begin to see how complete and fully alive the natural world is at all levels. Meditating on nature can be calming, fascinating, and inspiring all at once.
  • Switch the car radio to a classical station – rock music and talk radio are designed to stir you up and sometimes that’s one stimulant too many.

I love what Oprah said about gratitude, “I know for sure that appreciating whatever shows up for you in life changes your personal vibration. You radiate and generate more goodness for yourself when you’re aware of all you have and not focusing on your have-nots.”Tune into your breath and notice the natural flow of the inhale and exhale. Don’t change your breath, simply observe it. Pay attention to where in your body you feel the breath… your throat? Chest? Belly? Nose? As you feel the sensations of the breath, think of three very small things you’re grateful for. Perhaps its the way the sunlight feels warm on your skin, or the smell of tea steeping on the table next to you.
