Exercises for Inner Calmness
Working here in Singapore is hectic and stressful especially if you are new in the industry. The good news is that it will get easier as you go along armed with the knowledge and understanding of inner calmness. Your ultimate goal amidst chaos should be inner calmness. If you mastered inner calmness, nothing or no one can bring you down. Remember that.
You should begin with some easy exercises. What are some exercises that invite inner calmness? Here are some examples that might interest you:
Yoga – If you have the time, yoga should be practiced as it can teach you a lot of things but basically all about meditation and focus. If you do not have time, the least that you can do is practice the vipariti kirani yoga. This is a pose wherein you lie on the floor and then putting your feet against the wall. This pose will give you a good stretch.
Run – Many Singaporeans attest to the effectiveness of running when you feel stressed and anxious. However not all people have the time to do this. If you cannot run outside, the least that you can do is to run in place. Running in place for minutes will help the body pump endorphins. Endorphins can help you during your low times.
Stretch – You did not notice until your back ached – you had been working nonstop. Staying in one position for a long time will tense the muscles which is not good. You should at least stand up and do stretching. The stretching should be done many times as it can relieve tension of the muscle and invite relaxation.
Quick walk – There are times that you just want to walk away with everything and just see where it ends. That is not a good thing to do. You can decide to walk away in just a split second but the impact will surely last a lifetime. Do yourself a favor by taking a quick walk outside the office. Taking a quick walk away from the source or trigger of your stress can help clear your mind and ease tension. Strolling or quick walk can give you time to gather all your thoughts.
Dance – You may not be a good dancer but dancing actually can help ease the anxiety or stress you are feeling. Just do not mind the step and let yourself be carried away with the music.
When things get messy that you do not invite inner calmness at all, it is time that you face the trigger or the source.
