简单方法和精神压力说再见~!

Rub a Dub [HOT] Tub
泡澡

There's a good reason we soak in hot rather than cool water when we want to relax: After the body adjusts to the shock of the heat, the blood vessels dilate and blood pressure goes down—sometimes way down, which is why hot tubbers are advised not to soak for more than 15 minutes.

之所以是泡热水澡而不是冷水澡是有充分根据的:在身体适宜了热度后,血管会膨胀,从而血压下降--有时候下降很大, 这就是为何泡热水澡者不宜超过15分钟

Treat Yourself to a Foot Massage
给自己一次”足底按摩“

It's not the glossy lacquer of a pedicure that puts us in a pleasant frame of mind; rather it's the caressing of the digits. The health benefits of massage therapy that have been shown in countless studies include reducing blood pressure, and easing anxiety. In a 1996 study at the University of Miami's Touch Research Institute, 26 subjects received a massage in a chair twice a week while another 24 people were told just to relax in their chairs for 15 minutes. After five weeks, the massaged subjects scored significantly lower on tests for depression and job stress.

并不是足部治疗中的美丽的盆子让我们心旷神怡;而是对脚趾的按摩。 按摩疗法中健康好处已经被无数次地证明;包括:降低血液压力,缓解焦虑程度。在1996年一项又迈阿密大学触摸研究学院进行的研究中,26位受测者接受每周两次坐在椅子上的按摩;另24人只是坐在椅子上放松15分钟。在5周后,被按摩的受测人在抑郁和工作压力上的测试分数显著偏低。

Take a Mental Vacation
做精神旅行


You don't have to retreat to a tropical paradise to revitalize your life. Instead, invite an image of a relaxing and safe place. The key is not just to think about this place, but to "put" yourself there. This may be a place that you've visited or have never even seen. When you're "in" that place, notice details—the temperature, the sounds, the smells—and take note of how you feel. Let the Breathing Space Gallery help you visualize.

你不必“隐居”到热带天堂才能让自己重焕活力。 其实,思考一个令你放松和安全的地方。 不仅仅考虑那个地方是关键,而是把自己“放入”其中。这也许是一个你曾去过或从没见过的地方。当你“在”那里的时候,注意细节-温度、声音和气味--还要注意自己的感受。让《呼吸空间画廊》来帮助你视觉化吧。

Meditation 101
跟我一起学冥思


Try meditation for relaxation and stress reduction. Meditator Sharon Salzberg says you should start by sitting comfortably, with your back erect. It is fine to sit in a chair or on an arrangement of cushions on the floor. If necessary, you can lie down. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths, feeling the breath as it enters your nostrils and fills your chest and abdomen; then release it. Allow the breath to become natural, without forcing it or controlling it. Let your attention rest on one breath at a time.

试着用冥思来放松、减轻压力。 冥思师Sharon Salzberg说人们应该首先舒服地坐好、挺背。 坐在椅子上或地板上的一些软垫上都可以。 如果必要的话,你可以躺下。闭上眼睛、做一些深呼吸、感受从鼻孔进入、到达胸中和腹部时的呼吸;然后吐气。让呼吸自然、不要强迫或控制。 把注意力放在当前一次的呼吸上。

If your mind wanders, don't be concerned. Notice whatever has captured your attention, then let go of the thought or feeling, and return to the awareness of the breath. In this way, meditation teaches gentleness and an ability to forgive our mistakes in life and to go on.

如果你的思想走神,别因此担心。注意到任何分心的事物,然后把思维或感觉排出,会到呼吸的意识中。 这样,冥思会教会我们温和品性和原谅过去自己的错误的能力。
