Excerpt From Releasing Stress, Creating Serenity

The purpose of this little book is to provide tools, strategies and practices to support you in releasing stress, creating serenity and ultimately restoring BodyMindSpirit alignment, balance and circulation for optimal health and wellbeing.

The term BodyMindSpirit is formulated as one word because of the interrelationship of body, mind, spirit and the environment. Physical, mental, emotional and spiritual attributes are inter-related, inseparable aspects of the whole person. BodyMind- Spirit health and well-being is holistic and integrative, recognizing the whole person in relationship to and in interaction with your environment. Environment is more than physical surroundings. It includes natural, cultural, demographic, economic, political and technological factors that enhance or diminish conditions for growth and development.

Stress happens when one or more components of your BodyMindSpirit are out of sync, alignment or balance. You can reduce, manage and relieve stress by making self-care a priority. Key principles of self-care include:

• implementing daily BodyMindSpirit practices such as regular exercise, sound nutrition, and proper rest;

• cultivating positive beliefs, thoughts, attitudes, words and behaviors that create healthy, empowering results in your life;

• maintaining healthy boundaries by learning when and how to say “No,” “No, thank you,” or “No, not at this time” without guilt, shame or apology;

• taking “time-out” for pampering, play and quality time in nature;

• celebrating wins, successes, and achievements.

Each section of the book focuses on one component of BodyMindSpirit health, for clarity and simplicity. When you make a shift in any one component that shift involves and benefits the other components. Over time, you will experience BodyMind- Spirit health and well-being holistically.
