“I feel so burned out.”
“I don’t know if I’m doing what I’m meant to do.”
“I’m wired, tired and feel this constant knot in my stomach.” “I can’t explain it; I just feel off.”
Any of that sound familiar? If so, you’ll love these 10 fast, simple Reiki-inspired
tips you can do RIGHT NOW to find your center, balance your energy and just flat-
out feel good! No fancy tools or expensive programs required.
Let’s get started!
If you’re in modern society (and you are if you’re reading this), you take breathing
for granted. Holding your breath, not breathing deeply enough – it’s a major
energy drain. The great news? It’s free, fast (and easy) to fix.
DO RIGHT NOW: Take 5 belly breaths- bring your hands into prayer position,
fingers interlaced, arms straight out in front. Inhale as you lift your arms over
your head, resting on neck. Hold 3 seconds. Exhale while bringing your arms back
to starting position. Repeat 4 more times.
#2 FEEL YOUR FEET
I don’t mean look at your feet or give them long, lingering strokes. (Save that for
later.) I mean feel them. Getting into our feet can be a quick and effective way of
getting out of our heads!
DO RIGHT NOW: Wiggle your toes and really feel your feet in your shoe or on the
ground. What sensations do you feel? Do this for a few minutes, preferably outside
in the dirt or grass. Concentrate on your toes, your arch, the heel, etc.
Writing is a great release. And I’m not talking about channeling your inner
Hemmingway. This isn’t an exercise in creativity. It’s a chance to clear out your
mind, even if you just have a few minutes.
DO RIGHT NOW: Grab a paper and a pen and allow the words to be released from
your mind and into the paper. Make this your intention. ‘As I write these thoughts,
they’re no longer needed in my mind; I release these thoughts now.’
#4 GET OUTSIDE
The sun and its powerful healing energy can make a HUGE difference in our
