Here's Another Way to Wear Persper-eez

We’ve heard from a couple of women that they are attaching the pads directly to their bra, laying the bra down on a flat surface and attaching the pads on the bottom edge of the bra, then putting it on. Let us know if you’ve tried it too. info@persper-eez.com.

FindingYour Inner Calm

calm

Life is stressful. Even when things are going well, there’s an underlying tension that keeps us making decisions each and every day—simple decisions like what to eat for lunch or which color socks to wear, and more complicated choices like which assisted living setting will be best for an aging parent or how to ask for a raise. We won’t even mention the stress caused by recent politics.

Allowing our mind and body time throughout the day to relax will improve our mood as well as our digestion, lower blood pressure, decrease anxiety, and create an overall sense of well-being. The problem is, life can be nonstop busy; how can we find time to take care of ourselves along with everyone else?

Vegging out in front of the television after a long day may seem like a good way to unwind, but it’s not at all effective in allowing your body to fully relax and rest. Just as a 20-minute catnap can be more refreshing than a full hour nap, meditation/relaxation techniques can be done in short but effective amounts of time, giving the body a break from the toll of constant stress.

By practicing simple techniques such as meditation, yoga, and deep breathing, our body can activate its own natural relaxation response. The heart rate will slow, muscles relax, and blood pressure lowers while blood flow to the brain increases. Reaching this point, however, will be different for people. Those who prefer social interaction may need to participate in a class (attempting these techniques alone can actually raise their blood pressure!), while those who prefer solitude will benefit by performing these techniques in private.

Relaxation Techniques

Meditation – Sit quietly (do not lie down) with eyes closed in a quiet place (including no cell phone, tablet, or computer nearby). Choose a positive word, sound, or phrase to focus on. Breathe through your nose naturally as you repeat the word/phrase. Gently dismiss worries or thoughts that intrude. Start with short amounts of time throughout the day (even two minutes can be beneficial to start), and slowly increase the time as you teach your mind and body to cooperate. As with any exercise, daily practice is necessary to achieve the best results.

Deep Breathing – This can be done throughout the day in 5-minute breaks. Sit with eyes closed, a hand on your tummy. Inhale slowly and deeply through your nose, starting in your abdomen (feel your tummy expand as you inhale) and filling your lungs. Exhale just as slowly through your mouth. The important part here is to focus solely on taking cleansing breaths, ignoring distractions. This can be especially helpful right before a stressful event such as a presentation, or a doctor appointment.

Progressive Muscle RelaxationIf you have a history of muscle spasms, check with your doctor before trying this process.
This particular exercise can help you identify and target specific areas in the body that retain stress. As the name suggests, this process involves intentionally tightening and then relaxing one muscle at a time. Sit comfortably, clothing loosened, shoes removed. Take a minute or two to relax taking slow breaths in and out. Then focus on one foot. Slowly squeeze the muscles in that foot and hold as you count to 10. As you relax the foot, feel the tension release and note how your foot feels totally relaxed. Breathe calmly then focus on the other foot. Move up the body slowly, focusing on specific muscles. Take time to feel the release of tension each time. Tip: Try to tense only one specific muscle, not your whole body. This will require practice.

Visualization – This technique can be done alone (with or without music or other sounds such as a waterfall), or with a therapist or audio recording (guided visualization). Using the power of your imagination, you will focus on a scene in which you feel at peace. As you study the scene, use your senses to heighten the effect. What do you see, feel, taste, smell? Immerse yourself in the scene, releasing tension and anxiety so you are fully present to experience the calm and relaxation that is inspired by the scene.

Experiment with these or other techniques until you find one (or two) that works best for you. The point of each exercise is not to go through it as quickly as possible to get back to what you were doing but to step away from life’s demands for a few minutes to recharge, to find your inner calm and equilibrium.

Check your local community education program for meditation, yoga, or tai chi classes to learn proper techniques.
