Meditation and Neuroplasticity Training May Help Reduce Stress and Stop the Cycle of Addiction by Patrick Bailey
Stress is a word many people throw around casually. Many do not realize its very…
I used to think that freedom was something that was gained when I made a certain amount of money, drove a particular car or lived in a big house. Well, 13 years ago I started a journey of personal self care that changed my entire perception. I was nudged to enter a yoga class 13 years ago by a blinking sign that flashed at me as I sat at a stoplight in the middle of a really long workday. After work that day, I entered that yoga room and immediately my life started making positive shifts. In addition to the already consistent fitness routine, I added in yoga.
Expansion Through Self Care
I worked in the corporate world yet I was finding that I was moving through my day to day with more ease and I was feeling happier. It was a different happy, and felt more authentic. My personal relationships were also beginning to feel joyful. As I continued, I started to incorporate Pilates into my weekly routine. With Pilates, I was beginning to really start to understand the mind body connection and I started to pause before making decisions – looking toward the long term fulfillment. Not to mention I stopped craving alcohol and sweets. Without any effort, I felt no desire to take part in too much of anything.
Bodywork slowly started to take priority in my week. With bodywork, I was feeling relief and
integration of the self care that yoga and Pilates were providing. Not too long after Pilates, Neurosculpting® was introduced to me! Neurosculpting® helps me move toxic thoughts, stress and fear out of my body and mind, and allow for positive thoughts, ease and courage. And my dreams became insights into my life. I noticed if I thought something, it happened.
By adding Neurosculpting® into my regime I began to expand my social communities, lead groups instead of follow groups and align with the right clients for me. Stress is a killer and all the money in the world cannot offer me the freedom that a healthy lifestyle can bring. My ripple into freedom continues everyday.
