A recent Parenting magazine article focused on how you can calm down, even amidst all the hustle and bustle of being a parent. And, well, that goes for non-parents too, whether you’re working at home, doing the daily rat race, or going to school.
The article referenced author and yoga teacher Fred L. Miller’s book, How to Calm Down.
I liked all the tips, but one of them really stuck out for me:
Pop a LifeSaver into your mouth. Focus on the fruity taste of the cherry, lime, orange, or pineapple flavor, and resist the temptation to chew. The longer you suck and concentrate on the flavor, the more calm and tranquil you’ll start to feel.
I always thought it was about the shape of the candy, but maybe there was more to it when they named the candy a LifeSaver!
Honestly, though, you can do the same thing with anything meant for oral consumption. Any candy, any food, any beverage… just focus on how wonderful and amazing it tastes, and feel grateful and appreciative for the ability to enjoy it.
Sloooow down… relax… and then come back to regular life renewed.
This will also amp up your manifesting emotions, so you’re prepared to have more things go your way.
