We interrupt your scheduled viewing for Hippy time


Okay, I know that this is going to sound all hippy-dippy but I just had to share with you all something that I have found very effective.

I am the kind of person who has difficulty switching off her mind when bad things are happening. I worry and then I worry some more and imagine all the different scenarios and then I make myself feel ill.

Now over the years, I have learned different?techniques for coping like putting all my worries inside a box and locking that inside another box and then putting it in a corner of my mind and not allowing myself to open it. That takes quite a bit of effort but it can be done. It allows me to carry on as normal while the nasty thoughts hammer inside the box trying to get out. I have gotten so good at it that I can convince myself that everything is fine.

Sometimes however that is not enough as bad news can spring on me out of nowhere and in the past, this would prevent me from being able to sleep and then my ability to cope would go downhill rapidly.

That is no longer the case as I recently discovered a hippy-dippy method that works so I want to share it with you all.

I use this music to calm myself and to get my breathing and heartbeat back to normal. I run it in the background as I am working and it prevents my mind from going where I don’t want it to go. If you have clever children or grandchildren they can put the music onto your ipad for you or you can listen to it straight from Youtube.

The one below is best played at night once you get in bed at a level where you can just hear it. Set it on a loop if you know how so that it goes all night. It has been a bit of a miracle for me as never before after bad news have I been able that same day to go to sleep quickly and to sleep right through.

Walking in the sunlight really helps with depression so it makes sense that something as seemingly simple as music can also make an enormous difference?to our well being. If you need help I highly recommend this special kind of music. The channel ZenLifeRelax has music to help with all sorts of things.

Maybe smelly hippies aren’t all bad.
