When Anxiety Takes Over!
The world is full of distractions. It is hard to channel our energies towards things that need attention. It is even harder to stay focused and calm at the same time. Anxiety disorders and overwhelming thought patterns are taking over our lives.
But we know that pills are not the ultimate answer. Our only solution is to cultivate our brains to stay calm in every moment. But you don’t have to sit for hours in meditation. Simple practice of resonating healing sounds for as little as 2-3 minutes can calm your mind.
Productive or Stress-free?
Life teaches us to set tough goals, work hard towards achieving them, and in a way induces stress into our mind and body. It is impossible for many of us to become productive and stress-free at the same time. Stress-free productivity is an advice given by management gurus, but never practiced or realized.
A recent study has the answer to our problems. Researchers found that repeating a single word in silence can quiet the mind. The single word stimulates the system of our brain that makes our mind wander by thinking about the past or planning for the future.
This is where Nitaai Breathing comes in.
Benefits of Repeating a Single Sound
A few months of regular meditation can have a dramatic effect on your brain. Now, the scientists are figuring out what repeating single words does to the brain. Researchers used Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) to figure out the blood flow patterns in the brain when people were repeating a single word during meditation.
The results were dramatic. The simple activity of repeating a word during meditation showed dramatic decrease in the brain activity in the segments of the brain that were active during self-judgement or self-reflection, which is also known as the default network mode of the brain.
The default network mode manages the activity in your brain when it is alone and undisturbed. It handles mental thought patterns you fall into when you are not busy. Mental stress is the result of resistance with that and the possibility of what could happen.
Be Calm, Be Happy
Practicing the exercise of Nitaai Breathing gives you double benefit. It calms your mind during the times of agitation and anxiety. It also helps you take better decisions in decisive moments. Practicing Nitaai Breathing will take your mind off the situations and compulsive thoughts. It will create a sense of peace and serenity.
Practice Nitaai Breathing each morning. The technique demands less than 5 minutes of your time to get started. Do it every day to start experiencing calmer brain activity.
Make sure you use it from time to time, during the day, to keep your brain free from compulsions. Also, make it a habit to become aware of your body from time to time. There are two steps to Nitaai Breathing. Breathe deep and then repeat the Nitaai sound.
The next time you are working hard on a project or you are in a situation when you have to take a crucial decision, or when you need to stay calm during an argument, turn around, find a sweet empty spot, take a deep breath and repeat the Nitaai sound. What we connect to during such times often determines the outcome. Merge yourself with the sound of Nitaai, or sing it out loud.
Say hello to Nitaai Breathing. Say hello to alert calmness.
