Why confidence is very important in your life

Why confidence is very important in your life | Healthy Living | Scoop.it

      
      

Confidence can be described as a feeling of self-assurance which arises from a person’s appreciation of their own qualities or abilities.
For those of you, who may lack a little self-confidence, let me tell you: You are unique, you are different from everyone else, no one is exactly the same and that in itself already makes all of us awesome in our own ways! Everyone has talents and there are no exceptions to that. Everyone is good at something. Some people are very good at sports, arts or music, while others may be good at math or chess. It does not matter if you are a good listener or a good speaker, if you have the ability to bring out the best in others or if you just seem to be able to inspire everyone around you wherever you go. The important part is, that no matter what you may say, I am sure there is at least one thing you are very good at and that a lot of people admire you for. You should be proud of that, whatever it may be! Own it! Be confident about it!

Simple massage techniques everyone can learn

Simple massage techniques everyone can learn | Healthy Living | Scoop.it

   
      

If you are looking for ways to relax more a great option is to schedule a nice professional massage once a week. If you do not have the time and do not want to invest that much money, or simply are searching for something a little more time flexible and spontaneous another way to get you to relax more often would be to partner up with one of your loved ones and learn a few simple massage techniques yourself!
Yes, it might not be as good as a 60 or 90-minute massage in a spa or wellness salon. But you could easily use it while watching a nice movie with your loved ones. Or maybe just a few minutes before you go to sleep. Maybe you could spend your lunch break giving a quick but nice hand massage to your co-worker and have him/ her give you a hand massage as well.
The more you are relaxed, the happier you will feel. The more positive energies and vibes you will radiate to those around you. Treating your loved ones (that includes friends and family members) with a nice massage, will make them more relaxed and let them feel happier as well which will end up with all of you being more in love with life.

How to practice more gratefulness in our daily lives

How to practice more gratefulness in our daily lives | Healthy Living | Scoop.it

       
One of my all-time favorite definitions of gratitude is “the appreciation of what is valuable and meaningful to oneself and represents a general state of thankfulness and/or appreciation” by Sansone & Sansone, 2010.
Gratefulness is more than just saying thank you quickly; it is the feeling of being honestly thankful for something. The more you think about things you are grateful for, the more you will start connecting those things to positive feelings. The more often you express or think of what you are grateful for, the more you will realize how these thoughts tend to always put a smile on your face. This smile is what proves you the difference between just saying it and really thinking about it and meaning it when you think or say that you are grateful.

A quick guide on how to get started with progressive muscle relaxation

A quick guide on how to get started with progressive muscle relaxation | Healthy Living | Scoop.it

Progressive muscle relaxation, also known as “PMR” is a well known deep relaxation technique that has been effectively used to control stress and anxiety, relieve insomnia, and reduce symptoms of certain types of chronic pain.
This technique is based upon the practice of sequential tensing and relaxing all of the major muscles in your body. You start tensing the muscles from your head and continue until you reach your feet. Focusing on one muscle group at a time. This then is followed by a relaxation phase to release the tension. By tensing your muscles before relaxing them, you enable yourself to relax them more thoroughly after you release. This way you are letting go of physical tension more effectively, due to the fact that it is easier for muscles to relax from a position of high tension than it is from a position of lower tension.
