Just Stop! And revive for summer-time

just stop

How is your year going? Are you feeling balanced, happy, inspired or do you feel tired of the day-to-day commute, over-worked and like you are carrying a heavy load that you would just love for someone else to take over?

Whether you are feeling critically burned out, or really need to release the stress, whenever there is any sense of overwhelm, even approaching, the most vital thing to do is to Just Stop! And rest.

Your kidneys are the pistons that keep your system firing and when they are tired or overwhelmed by processing too much adrenalin, they begin to lean on your liver, which is the no 1. Toxin synthesizer.

Stress creates toxins unfortunately. With too much adrenalin firing around your system, your adrenal glands become over-stimulated and can create a toxic hormone called nor-adrenalin. This ages your body and organs, it creates huge amounts of pressure on our already pressured mind.

And it wants sugar! And it wants more – the only way to stop this “gotta-keep-going-catch-22” is to catch yourself before you hit the decks, explode at your partner or boss or do something you regret. Take time out to breathe, step away from your desk, excuse yourself from the meeting even briefly and then create space for you in your diary asap – me-time where you can invest in a massage or healing treatment that will help to relax you in body and mind and flush out excess toxins. A day in a spa or exercise in nature; walking, horse-riding, cycling, where you can release the stress and breathe in clean, clear oxygen.

Or join us in Ibiza for a Just Stop! Retreat, as featured in the Sunday Times Travel last year as one of the best mind-body-release retreats. With daily yoga, breathwork and meditation to help you find your inner-peace, to support you in feeling stronger and clearer, with massage, life coaching, wellness and energy coaching and amazing Cranio-sacral therapy for deep nervous-system release.

Adho Mukha Svanasana – Downward dog is the leader of the pack!

adho_mukha_svanasana_2009_poster-p228500839787216631480j_400

So here we are, pretending we are dogs having a stretch, almost upside down, our backs feel stiff and our heels are nowhere near the floor but yet there is a certain sense of calm. The downward dog is probably a posture that even the non yogi-est yogis have heard of.

There are so many benefits to the humble dog, below is a mere taster!

Physically it:

–       Calms the brain and helps relieve stress and mild depression

–       Energizes the body

–       Stretches the shoulders, spine, hamstrings, calves, arches, and hands

–       Strengthens the arms and legs

–       Helps prevent osteoporosis

–       Improves digestion

–       Relieves headache, insomnia, back pain, and fatigue

–       Therapeutic for high blood pressure, asthma, flat feet, sciatica, sinusitis

Phew!! And so how do you do it…

  1. Come onto the floor on your hands and knees. Set your knees directly below your hips and your hands slightly forward of your shoulders. Curl your toes under and spread your fingers out on the ground to help you feel stable and grounded through you arms.
  1. On an exhalation raise your hips upward, pushing into the floor away with your hands and pressing your heels down toward the floor, initially keeping your knees slightly bent. Take care that your weight is evenly distributed between your hands and feet. Hold this post or move on to straighten your legs, with your heels continuing to descend to the floor, so that your heels are grounded through your legs and feet as well as through your arms and hands, while your hips reach upward.
  1. Hold for 1-3 minutes – or longer of you can. End the position, by bending your knees into child’s pose and relax.
