3 Ways To Take Care Of Yourself From The Inside Out

People today are more stressed than ever, especially those who work jobs that require long commutes and even longer working hours. Some people don’t even have time to see their families unless it’s the weekend. All of this takes a heavy toll on the body, and while people often say they need a vacation, they need more than just a vacation.

In today’s busy world, a vacation only serves as a temporary escape from the reality some call the “daily grind” of life, and the moment you clock in for your first day back at work, it will seem like you never left.

How many times have you gone on vacation and spent even a small amount of time contemplating how much time you have left, and how much you dread having to go back to work when it’s over? If you’ve ever done that, you’ve essentially just paid a lot of money to continue stressing out about life with a change of scenery.

Instead of working hard toward your next escape, consider these 4 tips for choosing a healthier route that will allow you to heal from the inside out.

1. Stop actively discussing stressful situations

According to PratimaRaichur, an expert in Ayurveda, science has shown that even just talking about our stressful situations releases powerful stress hormones like epinephrine and cortisol in an attempt to prepare us for fight or flight. If you’ve ever vented your frustration or anger to someone and experienced an increased heart rate, that’s why.

In no way does talking about your stress relieve you from experiencing that stress – it just makes it worse. What’s more, stress negatively impacts your immune system, which can lead to other serious health problems down the road.

Instead of venting your stress to other people, shift your mindset from wanting to vent to seeking help and solutions. Rather than approaching your friends and co-workers with an unsolvable problem, approach them with the intention of asking for their help to resolve the issue in a way that benefits everyone involved.

2. Take care of yourself holistically

Instead of paying big bucks to take a nap beside a pool that has an open bar nearby, consider actively engaging your body in exercise that not only gets your blood flowing, but also moves your vital energy. Ayurveda, yoga, and Qigong can all contribute to restoring your vitality.

Ayurveda is an ancient Indian methodology and approach to holistic living and healing that utilizes simple tools to accomplish great health. Attending an Ayurvedic retreat is a great way to experience great healing inside and out while being surrounded by like-minded people who share your passion for creating a genuine connection with life.

Yoga and Qigong are both wonderful activities that move your physical body in ways that allow your life force energy, or chi, to move through your body without obstruction. You’ll be surprised at how seemingly small stretching movements can make such a big impact in the way you feel afterward.

3. Spend time alone

The demands of daily life can become too much sometimes, especially when we have multiple people in our lives that we need to care for. This can make it difficult to take care of ourselves – by the time we’ve handled everyone else’s needs, we may not have enough energy left to tend to our own.

Spending time alone creates the space for us to exist in a quiet frame of mind where we can hear our own thoughts and be free from all obligations. Being alone with ourselves also trains us into aligning with our purpose; once we’re alone and without obligations to others, we really get to know ourselves more deeply. We can discover who we are and what we really want to accomplish in life. There’s nothing more healing than discovering who we truly are when nobody else is influencing our decisions.

The stress of everyday life isn’t worth losing yourself over. Taking the time to rejuvenate your mind and body is the key to eliminating stress from your life. When you take care of your physical body and put yourself first, the healing that takes place occurs holistically from the inside out. From that place of total wellness, you can create your dreams.
