Why is it so important to relax?

Why is it so important to relax?

A good question. Maybe obvious – maybe not.

Here’s a reminder from Basher:
“Take a deep breath – hold it – hold it – hold it – hold it – then let it go….
Relax! Relax! relax!
And when you do – you’ll enjoy yourself more.
And when you do – you’ll enjoy life more.
And when you do – you’ll enjoy everything more.”

IOW – it’s about managing our vibration; managing how we feel; managing our state of being; managing our attitude.

A relaxed state of being attracts a relaxed series of experiences and events… mmm  … seems simple, doesn’t it?  But only once you’ve “got it”.

Sadly most have been taught that there is greater “value in struggle and hard work” than there is in ease and relaxation. Odd, isn’t it?

How singing is linked to mind power

If you’re a regular reader of this blog you’ll know that most of the posts talk about – in one way or another – ways that you can enhance your life – specifically-  by becoming more aware of the amazing power of your mind.

Mind power

Understanding your mind and how it works is like having access to your own treasure trove. Relaxation and focus are two vital skills you need in order to craft the life of your dreams.

How singing can be so beneficial

Today I’m looking at how singing can be so beneficial for inducing a positive mental state.  I’ve been researching the benefits of “diaphragmatic breathing” for singers.  Not only does it improve the quality of your voice – how it sounds – but deep breathing has a range of other wonderful benefits.

It calms the nervous system, reduces blood pressure, relaxes the body, and increases oxygen to the organs. By consciously focusing on the breath you can quiet the mind and improve concentration.
