You lie in bed in the evening and try to fall asleep.
You can't and think about why that could be. You think about your to-dos:
"Have I thought of everything?"
" Haven't I forgotten something else?"
"Could I perhaps now find the solution to the biggest problem that has been bothering me throughout the day?"
Then it becomes clear to you...
The stress that is slowly building up due to everyday pressure has finally reached you and won't let you go.
Stress affects the body and mind
Life is hectic and the events and pressures create stress, which has a negative impact on the mind and body. Work performance, children, schedules, traffic jams, money problems, illnesses and encounters with negative people contribute to stress. To be healthy, you need to reduce the amount of stress in your life. What could you do?
Instruments and medicinal herbs against stress
Stress killers from Ayurveda & TCM are adaptogens, such as Reishi, Ashwagandha, Brahmi or Shatavari.
But meditation is also an instrument that you can use.
- Meditation is a wonderful, long-term solution to reduce stress.
- Meditation promotes relaxation, gives a feeling of well-being, peace and calm and clears the head.
- Meditation can also help alleviate health problems.
- Meditation helps to restore your mental equilibrium and inner balance.
But how do you fit another activity into your already busy life?
You can combine meditation with a very basic, everyday activity...that is essential to your needs: that activity is cooking.
There are many forms and levels of meditation. Simple tasks encourage peace. One of the most basic forms of meditation is finding peace and joy in simple daily tasks. Cooking is a simple daily task. You can also try complex recipes to practice cooking and meditation. Simple soups and casseroles become a peace-making event.
"I'm looking forward to coming home to cook something."
