Stress Relief

One reason we garden is because it relaxes us. Even though it can be hard, back breaking work sometimes, just the fact that you are outdoors in the sun and not thinking of anything but the next weed you have to pull can be very relaxing. It's very meditative, being out there wit just you, the weeds and the dirt. But, that doesn't work for everyone. To others, gardening could be down right stressful.

We all know that stress is the silent killer and we should all do what we can to reduce stress in our lives. What works for one person may not work for the other though so you have to find what works specifically for you.

Some people find benefit in a device like the emWave pictured above. It is a handheld stress reliever which has a LED display, audio feedback and a powerful stress relief technique to help you significantly reduce your stress and increase your feelings of well-being. Here's how it does it: when you place your thumb on the sensor or attach the ear sensor, it detects your pulse it synchronizes your breathing with your heart rhythm. In addition to the device, a Coherence Coach CD demonstrates the Quick Coherence Technique. With this device and the techniques learned from the CD, you are armed with a stress coping techniques that you can avail anywhere you find yourself in a stressful situation.

Investigate different methods and techniques, this is just one, until you find one that works for you and fits your lifestyle.
