Blog: If Summer is leaving you hot and bothered

If Summer is leaving you hot and bothered, cool off with these tips

Summer can leave us all feeling hot and bothered (yes, even in the UK). With additional worries such as arranging child care, holidays and of course trying to navigate the great British weather, we all need to take a bit of time to look after ourselves.

When we find ourselves feeling a little stressed, our natural inclination is to brush it off and say ‘I’m fine, I’m fine, I’ll deal with it later’. However, all that does is leave an unresolved tension niggling away in the background. That kind of background ‘noise’ can affect our performance or the quality of the time we spend with our families. Rather than put it off, deal with it now.

Try this to help: BREATHE, and no I don’t mean take a deep breath, I mean stop and focus on maintaining a fixed ratio of the “in” breath to “out” breaths. The exact ratio is less important than keeping the ratio fixed. You want to ensure there is even flow of air, in and out. Finally focus your attention on your heart or chest area, this will help to create a positive emotional state and move you away from the feeling of being hot and bothered.

Go on try it. See how you shift from a negative state to a positive one. You are now in a state where you can take on the world … or failing that, you’ll be in a much better position to deal with whatever got you all hot and bothered in the first place!

Remember BREATHEBreathe Rhythmically, Evenly and Through the Heart Everyday.
