I’m Dallisa Hocking, the CEO of Spirit & Spark, a boutique spiritual center located in the heart of Las Vegas. I am also a 5th generation psychic medium and transformation specialist. I regularly teach meditation and mindfulness to our clients, as well as through corporate workshops.
I’d like to share ways that you can avoid burnout, and turn a stressful day into one of balance and joy! To find alignment in your life, it’s critical that you stay in the present moment. Through this mindfulness practice, you can work to release the past and surrender what’s to come. Meditation is one of the best ways to accomplish this. I advise that people start by sitting in a chair, meditating for 2-3 minutes each time. You can set a timer or use an app like Calm which has pre-recorded meditations based on the amount of time you have. Afterwards, write down how your mind, body and Spirit feels.
Why is this all so important? Give yourself permission to be balanced and in alignment with your own life. Many people feel that they themselves are at the bottom of their long list of things to do. When we constantly put the needs of others before our own, we begin to feel burnt out or resentful. With the regular use of boundaries among people and requests, we begin to take our personal power back and we don’t feel used. This allows for more time to give back to ourselves and the things that make us happy. To help with healthy boundaries, wait 24-hours before agreeing to do a task or special project for someone.
Here’s a simple meditation technique that I’d like you to try:
FOCUS ON NOW
Anxiety can creep in when you revisit the past or try to control the future. A key to living with more joy and ease is to stay in the present moment. You can do that by following these simple breathing techniques:
–Close your eyes and take 3 deep cleansing breaths. You should feel them go through your entire body, from head to toe.
–Breathe in through your nose and silently count to 5
–Hold your breath for 5-count
–Breathe out of your mouth and silently count to 5
–Repeat this cycle for 1-2 minutes
–Open your eyes and notice how your body and mind feels.
