Stress can produce headaches, illness, depression, stomach issues, and sleeping problems. It can also lessen productivity and affect your immune system. Reducing stress is not an occasional luxury afforded to a few—it’s a necessity accessible to everyone.

You are responsible for the foods you eat and the decisions you make. You are also responsible for your thoughts. If you’re stressed or suffer from a lack of motivation, hold yourself accountable and make a conscious effort to reduce your stress level, while feeding your mind with new thoughts that can change your outlook and your life.

Question: When was the last time you intentionally took time to reduce stress? When was the last time you took responsibility for your thoughts and used them to create positive changes?

Action Steps: Your subconscious mind is your greatest tool toward creating balance, focus, and fulfillment. By choosing the thoughts and experiences you feed your mind, you have the amazing ability to change the way you think and how you experience your life. No matter what industry you are in or service you provide, empowering your mind is an important element in your success. To enhance your performance and abilities, reducing stress and guiding your mind with the right suggestions is crucial to personal and professional empowerment. The best part is that anyone can do it, even if you’re busy or overwhelmed. The benefits are immediate—in four short minutes, you’ll feel as relaxed and refreshed as if you’ve had a two-hour power nap. Give yourself four minutes today to relax, reduce stress, and create a clear pathway for success.

Find a quiet place where you can sit and relax. Close your eyes and imagine a calm, peaceful place. Breathe in, slowly and deeply, envisioning yourself in this place, free from stress, schedules, and worries. Now exhale fully, cleansing your body of outside chatter and pressures. Continue breathing, becoming increasingly relaxed with each breath. Feel yourself fall further and further into a deep, relaxing state. Once you’re fully relaxed, feed your subconscious with new and empowering thoughts and affirmations that are aligned with your goals, such as “I am free of stress. I am confident and committed to achieving my goals. I am free of distractions and have control of my thoughts.” Whatever your goals are, affirm and believe them during this state of deep relaxation.

After four minutes, slowly open your eyes. You’ll feel relaxed, refreshed, and energized. Your subconscious will start to use the suggestions you placed in your mind to create the change you want. You’ll see results the first time, but as you repeat your four-minute vacation of the mind over time, it will become more effective, and so will you.

DO NOT TAKE THE SIMPLICITY FOR GRANTED.  Remove doubt and just do it.
