We are all aware of the daily worries and the pace in which we live today. Even we are very well informed of the harmful consequences of living with stress, anguish, anxiety and other manifestations of the lack of a break in our daily life. However, many still do not know the benefits of trying to live more slowly and they start using methods to elevate endorphins when they feel irritated or burnt out.
Do you know what endorphins are? Many call them analgesic molecules and even self-produced morphine. This is because endorphins have analgesic properties and are assimilated to natural opiates in the body that can be up to twenty times more powerful than pain medications sold in pharmacies. This powerful substance seems to go unnoticed when we find ourselves surrounded by traffic, work stress, pollution and isolation through technology.
The keyword in which we want you to stress is "self produced". That's right, you can produce and increase your levels of endorphins
. by yourself . How? Doing activities that will seem very simple: dancing, laughing, meeting new people and having a conversation with a close friend, singing, listening to music, taking a bath, walking in a quiet space, doing yoga, performing breathing exercises, giving a kiss in the mouth, painting , eating chocolate, being tender with someone you love, having happy thoughts and giving hugs to other people.
All of the above, surely is known by all and we do not see any difficulty in doing the mentioned activities. They are all comforting actions for our self. However, there is one thing that will fill us with all of them and it is traveling.
These activities along with visiting new places, have become difficult to achieve, since the workload has consumed us in such a way that just taking the time to caress someone you love, can be conceived as a valuable time that could be have invested in something else. Or a pause to have a walk listening to music, is procrastination and not doing what should be done for the job.
We forget the important thing: living our live to the fullest! It means living without worries nor stress. This week's invitation is to start planning your trip to rediscover yourself. You will safely elevate your endorphins and live a revitalizing experience to continue with your daily routine.
