Emotional Rest: Many times in a hectic life, when we do not get enough time to rest, then its effect is seen on our mood, energy level and health. In such a situation, we also lose the ability to concentrate on the important tasks. In a report published in Hindustan newspaper, Oponopono (Ancient Life Philosophy Based on Forgiveness) expert Dr. Karishma Ahuja explained why mental and physical rest is important.
According to Dr. Karishma Ahuja, physical rest relaxes those nerves, which help us to concentrate thoughts and feelings. The body’s internal clock naturally knows when it is time to wake up and when to sleep. But due to today’s busy lifestyle, the natural rhythm of the body has started deteriorating. Which has a direct effect on our sleep.
Why is sleep necessary?
Sleep is necessary to maintain the body’s metabolism, build the immune system, detoxify organs, and rebuild tissues. It generally helps to refresh us for the next day. The question here is not only about how many hours but also when do you sleep and how disciplined are you with your sleeping habits.
When to sleep?
According to Dr Karishma, if you want to have a sound sleep then you should keep enough gap between your dinner and bedtime. Along with this, try that you go to sleep before 11 o’clock in the night. This will help in improving the quality of sleep.
take time for yourself
Mental rest is necessary to keep the mind away from stress and the best way to get it is to keep yourself away from the phone or laptop. Spend a few minutes in silence, connecting with the breath and the mind. This will make the mind more relaxed. Pay attention to your breath, what you are taking in and what is leaving your body. The best time to do this is in the morning. This practice will help to refresh your mind and calm your senses.
Need emotional rest too
If you are emotionally tense, you will never be able to live to the fullest. It is very important to maintain the right balance between work and personal life. Spending time with positive people, loved ones and friends can refresh you emotionally. With the help of positive words and suggestions, you can try to turn your feelings into more healthy and positive feelings
