Take Brisk Walks When Possible – More About The 1st Step For Calming Yourself In A Crisis

Here are some more ideas on how we can get through these tough times together.

The 1st step in handling a crisis is about practicing techniques to calm yourself.

Last days’ posts were about calming yourself by taking control over your breathing. Further more, using a soothing mantra will help you gain perspective and offer comfort.

Another important way to calm a stressed body and mind is to keep cool or get warm.

 

Today, it is about taking brisk walks when you can. This has proven to be very effective for reducing cortisol levels in the blood. Cortisol is one of the body’s main stress hormones.

Walking often means removing ourselves from our sources of stress. For example the triggering news flow.

Also, walking is especially good for uncomfortable feelings and thoughts. This activates the soothing parts of the brain, which distracts them and makes them dissolve.

In addition, walking also forces us to take in the surroundings. Often this broadens our perspective.

Finally, brisk walks make the blood flow back to the parts of the brain that are needed for you to talk to yourself, evaluate solutions, and control your behavior.
