This busy October night has the Moon to the right of Mars, bringing tension and anxiety. You find it important to multi-task, but despite your reserves of energy, the urge to keep constantly busy and mentally occupied puts a lot of stress on your nervous system. Learn how to relax and recharge your batteries. Don’t over-extend yourself. We live in a world that makes it hard to really unwind. The demands of daily life are intense and never ending. We have come to equate success with achievement, and achievement with happiness. An incredibly easy yet effective way to use your body to get your brain to relax – smile. Smiling is one of the most powerful ways to not only enhance the moods of those around you but to completely alter your mood in the process. Try music! Music can have a profound effect on both the emotions and the body. Faster music can make you feel more alert and concentrate better. Upbeat music can make you feel more optimistic and positive about life. A slower tempo can quiet your mind and relax your muscles, making you feel soothed while releasing the stress of the day.
