Deep breathing for relaxation
Sit comfortably with your back straight. Put one hand
on your chest and the other on your stomach.

Breathe in through your nose. The hand on your stomach should rise. The hand on your chest should move very little.


Exhale through your mouth, pushing out as much air as you can while contracting your abdominal muscles. The hand on your stomach should move in as you exhale, but your other hand should move very little.


Continue to breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth. Try to inhale enough so that your lower abdomen rises and falls. Count slowly as you exhale.

If you have a hard time breathing from your abdomen while sitting up, try lying on the floor. Put a small book on your stomach, and try to breathe so that the book rises as you inhale and falls as you exhale.

Here are some ways to unwind and take a load off:
1. Try going for a long walk if you are stressed.
2. If you are at work try to breathe deeply and exhale
slowly if you find yourself in a stressful situation.
3. Taking a leisurely bath with an oil or bubble bath can be
a very soothing end of the day comforter.

4. Stretching exercises for about 15 minutes while listening to calming music with your eyes closed, is very relaxing.

5. Reading a good book is a nice way to chase the day\u2019s
cares away.

6. Laugh. Laughter is the best medicine! Laughter makes you feel good, makes you glow, and stimulates circulation throughout your body. Try going to see a funny movie, read a funny book, play with a pet, or if you have children play with them, they are sure to be laughing and smiling all the time.

7. Healing foods are a great way to pamper your mind and body. I have the top ten healing foods, that will help you to balance your moods, restore your energy, and give your immune system a boost.

Here are the top ten healing foods:
Beans- Beans are very high in B Vitamins, which is a known

mood stabilizer. They are also high in complex carbohydrates, magnesium, iron, zinc and fiber. A cup or so a day is recommended to benefit from this food.

Salmon- Salmon is the top food of flavor and a rich source

of beneficial omega 3 fats, which have been proven to help prevent heart problems, and lesson the symptoms of PMS and arthritis. One or two servings every week is recommended.

Garlic- Garlic is a potent antioxidant that can cut

cholesterol, fight off infection, help soothe a sore throat, and protects your heart. An ounce of fresh garlic contains a large helping of vitamin C, thiamin - vitamin B, potassium, sulfur, and iron. Eating a clove or two of fresh garlic everyday will help keep bacteria away.

Shellfish- Shellfish is a lean, low calorie food that delivers a

powerful nutritional meal. Shrimp, scallops, clams, crab, lobster, snails, and oysters are high in nutrients like, protein, B complex vitamins, iron, iodine, zinc, and copper. To benefit, two meals of shellfish per week are recommended.

Sesame seeds - These tiny seeds are highly absorbable

and packed with calcium, and magnesium. They are also high in minerals, and fiber. If you go to your local health food store, you can find raw, un hulled seeds or jars of sesame tahini, or sesame paste. Two tablespoons everyday of seeds or paste will contribute toward your daily mineral requirement.

Water- Water helps you to feel full, hydrates your skin,

helps to keep your organs operating smoothly, and flushes toxins out of your body. A person should drink 8 to 12, 8- ounce glasses of water everyday.

Bananas- Bananas are high in natural sugar, and ripe

bananas are a self- contained food that is quick, and gives healthy energy. Bananas have a fair amount of B-complex vitamins, vitamin C, soluble and insoluble fibers, and are a good source of potassium, and magnesium. Eating a few bananas each week will boost your energy.

Apples- Apples are a fast, easy, and thirst quenching snack.

Apples are rich in soluble and insoluble fiber, potassium, and trace minerals. Like the old saying goes, "A apple a day, keeps the doctor away".

Orange- Oranges are juicy, sweet, and full of cold fighting

vitamin C, soluble and insoluble fiber, bioflavonoids, folate, and potassium. One a day of this yummy snack is sure to help!

Broccoli- Broccoli is full of nutrition. If you have 1/2 a cup

several times every week, you can achieve most of your daily required vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin A, and the B complex. You will get plenty of minerals, most impotently calcium and magnesium.
