There are creative ways to reduce stress daily. Take a mini-vacation with coloring. There are many choices of big and small coloring books or download and print out some beautiful Mandala patterns to calm your nerves. You can do it during your coffee or lunch break. Coloring is a form of meditation and a great way to relax, create something beautiful and engage with different colors which works like color therapy.

More creative color therapy topics and many other wellness related topics will be in our new book “Wellness Perspectives” written by the Three Coaches and a Psychologist.  The wellness book will be available in fall.

Relieving Neck Tension

Posted by Linda

This is an old argument in the field of thinking about suffering, and its stupidity and lack of sophistication could be plumbed for centuries but suffice it to say that the existence of broccoli does not, in any way, affect the taste of chocolate.” ― John Green, The Fault in Our Stars.  May you savor whatever you eat from this summer’s abundance, including fair trade chocolate, and check out the following practice to see if it alleviates pain and/or increases your joy.

Rosemary’s Exercise for Head-Neck-Shoulder Alignment and Throat Relaxing

I learned this from Rosemary very many moons ago; she learned it from an opera singer. It has 5 steps to it, and is best done standing, but sitting is okay too.

1. Drop your head forward and down on your neck, then your neck forward and down toward your chest, the result being a curling of your head and neck.

2. Roll your shoulders forward and rotate your arms (that are hanging by your side) inward. –By now maybe you’re wondering, What the ???

3. Keeping your shoulders and arms as they are, bend your head back so you can see the ceiling. –and now you’re really wondering…

4. Keeping your head flopped back, and your arms rotated in, bring your shoulders up toward your ears.

5. This step is a two-fer: Roll your shoulders back and let them drop down to neutral (your arms will naturally de-rotate back to neutral), and at the same time, allow your head to drop forward toward neutral.

You’ll find that “neutral” for both head and shoulders is a bit different than you’re used to. Feel the changes. Take an easy breath or two and enjoy. Can be helpful to repeat 2 more times. Practice 1-4 x daily to create greater ease and balance through there.

FAMILY GAME NIGHT DURING SCHOOL YEAR!

Have a smaller game table or card table where the whole family can play games (instead watching only TV) and perhaps have even a special table for a puzzle where the whole family can work on during the week. The children will remember the fun time spent together with the parents!
