If you are in any phase of a breast cancer diagnosis or treatment; now would be a great time to plan for some self help. Simple, yet profound ways to soothe an anxious mind and a tired body may be as easy as:
- All you need is time (which you MUST take)
- Find a quiet place (maybe in nature) and
- Enjoy a nice warm cup of medicinal calming tea (Calm Tea)
- Create some quiet time so you can breathe consciously
When stress hormones spike due to any anxiety – yes, you can do something. Make yourself a cup of Calm Tea, sit quietly and “Breathe with Purpose”. This will create inner calm and quiet. We know that chemical imbalances occur from treatments and other daily stresses. Toxins are also absorbed during treatments. Even in our home or work environment, toxins are contributing to our stress.
It is important to get our “mind” back: back in focus. There is nothing worse than feeling anxious all the time. It only creates more worry. All we want is to feel balanced and calm. These two functions are essential for overall health. Breathing consciously and with awareness will bring your mind under control and into the moment. This is where it belongs.
Calm is the Key – Love is the answer. Being calm is such an amazing feeling but you must love yourself enough to set an intention to experience it. I know it is hard to begin but begin you must, and once armed with the right tools there should be no stopping you. All you need is time (which you MUST take), a quiet place (maybe in nature) and a nice warm cup of medicinal calming tea. Your body and mind will instinctually know it is needed and respond in kind. Ultimately, once you practiced this delightful combination of tea time, breath work and “you” time the results will speak for themselves. But don’t take my word for it, try it yourself and start today. Remember you deserve this!
