A Quick Fix When Feeling Overwhelmed

A Quick Fix When Feeling Overwhelmed

At Nakin we are obsessed with natural beauty and a big part of this is our overall health and wellbeing. One of the big contributors to premature ageing is stress, as stress causes biological changes to skin that result in reduced elasticity. Using amazing anti-ageing skincare like Nakin’s will really help, however, for all round health and wellbeing we need to be mindful of every aspect of our life such as nutrition, exercise and lifestyle.

Stress is a part of everyone’s life and there will be times when we feel overwhelmed. Especially in the current times there seems to be so many issues that need our attention and so our brains can easily become overwhelmed. The trick is to overcome this and there is an easy fast way to de-stress and calm overwhelm.

We were particularly interested in a method we saw on Instagram from @live_well_with_lou. Lou is a health and wellness coach and specialises in tiredness, stress and overwhelm. We all feel overwhelmed sometimes, some of us more than others depending on our own lifestyle and disposition. Next time that you are feeling overwhelmed try to reset the mind by holding an object and focusing your senses on this. We recommend using a crystal and taking time to breathe, as crystals are also thought to have powerful wellbeing inducing properties. One of our favourite crystals for stress is Amethyst as they reduce anxiety and promote calm and relaxation in us. The other nice thing about crystals is that they are so portable. We can easily keep them in our home, handbag or pocket and use them as required. Keeping them next to us in a pocket or on jewellery like a chain means they can also promote wellness throughout the day. The way to use the crystal when feeling overwhelmed is to switch your focus to the crystal and focus on how it looks and feels. Think about the shape, the colour, how the light glistens, plus the weight and texture.

This quickly takes your brain away from the stress feeling and it stops our mind focussing on the anxiety and overwhelm. Instead of thinking about the past and future it brings us to the now, plus calms everything down to take the edge off.

Once you are calm then it is a good idea to look at what is causing the overwhelm and how the situation can be improved. Whatever the issue is, there is normally something that can help. Sometimes just talking to someone about an issue can take it away from being in our head so much. Or if it is to do with work and tasks, is it possible to reduce your workload, or commitments.

Breathing properly serves as a foundational technique in reducing stress and promoting relaxation. When we focus on taking slow, deep breaths, it helps to activate the body's parasympathetic nervous system, which in turn reduces heart rate and lowers blood pressure. This induces a state of calmness throughout the body and mind. Holding crystals during this process adds an additional layer of relaxation for many. Certain crystals are believed to possess specific energies and properties that can aid in calming the mind, balancing emotions, and enhancing meditation practices. For instance, amethyst is often associated with tranquility and clarity, while rose quartz is linked to love and peace. Together, the practice of mindful breathing and the tactile sensation of holding these crystals can facilitate a deeper sense of relaxation and well-being.
