Breathing Exercises and Other Techniques to Remain Calm

If you’re looking to improve your ability to stay calm and collected under pressure, then there are numerous different techniques you can use. One of the most potent is to learn to control your breathing, which can immediately help you to feel calmer and avoid being pushed over into the stress response.

In this post, we’ll be looking at some breathing techniques you can employ to stay calm, as well as looking at some other techniques you can use.

Equal Breathing

Equal breathing is a technique from yoga, which essentially requires you to breathe in and out through your nose. While doing this, you maintain your breath for an equal amount of time on the in-wards and out-wards breaths. So you might breathe out for 4 seconds and then breathe in for four seconds.

This helps you to empty your lungs and fill them with fresh oxygen. What’s more, the slow and deep breathing will allow you to trigger your ‘rest and digest’ state which is similar but slightly different to the ‘fight or flight’ state and is controlled by the parasympathetic nervous system. This is a great way to stave off an anxiety response.

Breathing From the Stomach

Another breathing technique to try is simply to breathe from the stomach as we are naturally designed to do. If you try breathing right now and note whether your stomach or chest moves first, you may well find that you breathe by leading with your chest. This limits the amount of oxygen you can take in with each breath and that can increase stress.

Instead, breathe by first allowing your abdomen to expand. Use your transverse abdominis, also known as transverse abdominal, and expand your abdominal cavity. This will allow your diaphragm to drop into that space, opening up your lungs. You can then follow by expanding your chest and you’ll have more space in total to take in more oxygen.

Power Positions

Power positions are positions that have been shown by research to trigger the production of testosterone and other positive, stress-fighting hormones. One is the ‘victory pose’. If you simply stand with your arms above you in a ‘V’ shape, as though you had just won a competition, this will increase your production of testosterone, helping you to feel more confident and more driven. Of course it’s best to do this somewhere private before the event you’re nervous about!

How Exercise Can Give you More Energy

Exercise is very important in order to be successful in your life. Daily exercise can rejuvenate your body & increase your stamina, which is something we need in order to be successful. We need to be productive in our lives in order to be successful. Incorporating a daily exercise program will help you have more energy to do the things the must be accomplished. Exercise can in fact be done at any time of the day provided that you do regularly. To get back some of the lost energy you can go out for a jog, a long walk, or work out at a gym.

Jogging for just 15-30 minutes every day can rejuvenate your body. It makes your heart pump more blood to every part of your body, and let your body attain high energy level. In addition, it is excellent for your health. Exercises that boost your cardiovascular health can in fact add to your body’s capacity to generate more energy. A number of studies on this subject have long-established that fair amount of aerobic exercises raise the energy level. People who don’t exercise as much as necessary often are not as productive as those that do exercise regularly. If people aren’t fit and strong enough, they will not be able to focus on things that need to be done. If you are not able to jog, in that case, go for a long brisk walks. Walking is as well an excellent means to get some exercise. If you haven’t been very active, start slow & check with your doctor. The important thing is to start being more active in order to accomplish all the things you need to do.

Drinking water throughout the day & especially while you are exercising is very important.  There is nothing better for your body than drinking water; the minimum amount is between 8-10 glasses of water every day. Reduce intake of sugars as well, it’s acceptable to have them on occasions, although don’t make it a habit.

In addition, if you want some diversity to your exercise routine, look for workout DVD programs. These programs include all the fantastic workout, nutrition and motivation information with some intense few minute’s workouts and a form of exercise called “super stacking technique”, where you stack exercises for multiple body parts in each move. In this way within 10 minutes, you can boost your body’s energy level.  There are a variety of workout programs for all levels so choose a program that fits your current activity level & work up from there. I hope with this information you now know how exercise can give you more energy.

3 Ways To Improve Your Self Belief And Grow From Your Mistakes

 

Self esteem describes how we feel about ourselves. Our self esteem or sense of self worth is normally based on our perception of our abilities and how we believe other people accept and value us as individuals. We automatically find ourselves accepting those beliefs and they feel like ‘reality’ to us.

To be successful in goal setting you need to do more than just plan and write down your goals. You need to change your mind set and challenge some of the biggest fears that you have, and equally as importantly, develop your own self-belief. Goal setting can help you achieve success and happiness in your life. Remember, success in life is determined by yourself concept. You should therefore do everything in your power to improve your positive feelings about yourself while holding on to your humility.

Here are some proven ways to increase your self esteem:

– How do you feel about yourself?

Self-belief is how you feel about yourself. Self-esteem is determined by your internal feelings and evaluation of yourself based on your “perceived” self-image. If you are constantly comparing yourself to others and feel like you don’t measure up, your self-esteem suffers. In this life, one has the ability to change whichever negative self-images he or she has acquired. Sadly, many people never ask if the negative beliefs they have picked up are true.

Also, learning appreciation and gratitude is a sure-fire way to make you feel good. Acknowledge all your good qualities. Take some time to write down as many as you can. Read them over and over and feel the positive energy grow in you. Be grateful for the value of what you are gifted with. Reward yourself with whatever you feel you deserve.

– Success has to come from strength

Everyone has his or her own strengths including you. Your strengths have passions because they are the ones you must develop. Examine positions where you can apply your abilities and then get trained for them. Dream more about what you desire to accomplish and set an ambition to achieve it. You can accomplish what you focus on long enough. In order to develop your self esteem, you must love who you are, while acknowledging that your personal unique qualities make a valuable contribution to humanity. Know that people who in your eyes tend to be better off also have problems as well despite what they portray to you. Start to think more positive and circumstances around you will become more positive and this in turn will improve your self esteem.

– Growth

You must grow. Universal law mandates this. While you are reading this article stars are exploding, water is creating new lakes and streams and brand new babies are entering this wonderful world every single minute of the day! Our world continues to expand and grow and you are a part of this growth. Stay away from people you feel criticize you and make you feel inadequate and worthless.

Conclusion:

Improving and developing your self-belief into a positive is the best first step you can take on building the new you. Understand and accept these concepts and you are on the road to building your self-belief. Positive, positive, positive is the answer. Create positive thoughts toward your unconditional worth and unconditional love.

How We Influence People With Our Minds

Article by Jim Francis

 

How often have you felt that someone was staring at you? You probably turned around and immediately caught the gaze of the “starer”. Or maybe you’ve unintentionally done this to someone else.
 

What has not been realized until quite recently is that when you focus on another person, either within eyesight or geographically distant, then that person subconsciously picks up on your attention.

 

Further still, their physiology changes slightly. Their blood pressure increases for a start …and there are other measurable changes.

 

Human minds appear to act like an international telephone exchange. When you focus on someone…you “connect” directly with them. There is no error…the connection is always made.

 

This fact was suspected for a long time, but until recently there had been no serious research on it. Then along came the remote viewers. And what they discovered absolutely stunned the scientists who had an interest in this field.

 

The remote viewers found that not only could they “connect” with their target person in real time….but they could connect at specified times in the past and in the future!

 

That is…they would remote view (connect with) an individual….but before doing so would specify exactly the time and date that they wished to do so. It was found that they could remotely influence a person?s physiology in the past and in the future. This is totally astounding knowledge.

 

Please remember that each and every individual affects other people all the time. If you drive your car down the road slowly and hold up traffic behind you…then you are affecting others.

 

The mere fact that you are reading this means that I have affected you. You could have been doing something else right at this instant. All we are doing with remote influencing is affecting people in a slightly different way….remotely. It is merely an extension of your day to day interaction with others.

 

If you happen to be in a foul mood and enter a room full of people, then they subconsciously pick this up off you and avoid you. That is uncontrolled remote influencing. What you are learning here is controlled remote influencing.

 

You can use it to your advantage…and to the advantage of the other person. If you use it to harm them….then you are very likely to have the exercise bounce back on you some time in the future…with a considerable interest percentage added on!

 

Once you have mastered the process….you will simply find that things go your way. This is because you are unconsciously using subjective influence without even being aware of it. It becomes an automatic process.

 

When you focus on a project intently then your remote influencing abilities come into play and make it happen. It will appear to you as if you are suddenly having a run of good luck. Don’t knock it…ride with it. And don’t be afraid of it because it is a natural talent that you were born with. For the first time in your life you will have it under control.

 

The key is mental imagery. You must be able to visualize imagery well, and imagine feelings. The most difficult period is in the beginning. You must watch for every small indication that you are exerting some influence on the other person, and then build upon that.

 

Like learning to ride a bicycle, it becomes easier as it progresses, and finally become almost like second nature. It is this very difficult initial step that keeps this phenomenon from being more widely used. After you have become proficient, you will find that you do not need to see the person you are trying to influence, nor do you need to be in the proximity of that person.

 

In fact distance seems to have no effect on the phenomenon, just as it has no effect on paired quantum particles. Remote projection, like remote viewing, requires a relaxed mind and body. This is where your alpha training comes in.

 

With remote viewing you struggle to become aware of what is coming in from the matrix. With remote projection you are focusing on what you are sending out. That is….you are projecting tightly controlled imagery. You clearly shape your thoughtform, fill it with the necessary energy…then release the thought to the target you have chosen.

 

You must be very clear in your mind exactly what it is you wish to project. Waffly half formed thoughts will go nowhere. That is the first step. The second step is in releasing the thought. You fire this compressed energy thought-ball at the target…then promptly forget all about it. You DO NOT dwell on it.

 

This is the same process that is used for psychokinetic experiments. You fire the energy…then promptly think about something else. Most psychokinetic effects happen after you’ve stopped trying. You really have to become aware that what you think and what you feel is changing the world outside yourself!!!

 

Your thoughts have energy….this has actually been measured. And when you intently focus these thoughts they develop a resonant energy. Then when you direct this resonance toward one particular person …with absolute single-minded intensity …that energy will be imparted to that target person and affect them.

 

You can design your life circumstances by consciously designing and focusing your thought patterns and accompanying intensity.

 

In developing projective skills remember that whatever you project outward will be reflected in your environment so destructive projections will adversely affect your environment. This is why people who dwell on things that they fear…and impart projective energy to these thoughts…usually self-destruct by creating their own personal disasters.

 

Once you learn these projective skills you must never dwell on negative destructive activities. The purpose of developing this projective ability is to firstly improve your own life…then the life of those around you that you care for.
