Happy Thursday Everyone

We have discussed visualization and other tools to help you realize your goals. Whether you using positive affirmations or visualization it is imperative that you are in a relaxed state in order for the subconscious mind to accept your suggestions. With most peoples lives (children included) being somewhat chaotic these days it is sometimes difficult to find a way to accomplish this. Deep breathing is a very good way to start. First, take a deep breath in through your nose, hold it for the count of three and then expel it through your mouth like you are blowing away all your cares and worries. Do this three or four times and you will be amazed at how relaxed you will feel.

If you or your children are still having problems relaxing you can also try a nice essential oil like lavender to promote relaxation. Although some skeptics believe aromatherapy is anecdotal at best; I find that the smell of lavender works really well to get me in a more tranquil mood and I often use it when I am meditating. My son likes it so much that when he is worried about something and can’t sleep he asks me to put some on his pillow to help him nod off.

Happy Goal Setting
