Hey there lover,
Let’s talk about the two minute reset. I hear you asking ‘Is it actually possible to reset your whole entire life and how you’re feeling right now in two minutes?’ I say yes. I say that you can feel completely different than you do right now in two minutes by doing the following.
You can increase the two minutes over time if you like, however for now two minutes is perfect.
So, what on earth are you going to do in two minutes that’s going to make you feel completely different?
Well, there’s actually a lot of things that you could do that would make you feel completely different, but this exercise is going to make you feel clear, centred, aligned, back in your body and ready to go again. You will feel like YOU. You’ll feel calm and you will feel like you’ve just hit the reset button.
You know how good you feel after you clean out a room or clean your house, yeah you’ll feel like that! This two minute reset is is a decluttering of your mental, emotional and energetic state.
Still with me? You want in? Okay sweet one this is what you need to do…
This can be done ANYWHERE, your bedroom, your office, wherever. Yep, you can still do this if you’re at work or in a crowded environment. If you like you can pop headphones if you can and get as comfortable as you can depending where you are. If you are in your home, you may like to lay down on your lounge or bed, if you’re sitting at your desk just settle in for the two minutes. Set an alarm on your phone for two minutes time and turn on aeroplane mode.
And now, all you need to do is just focus on your breathing, for two minutes. Bring awareness to your breath. Does it feel cold, hot, are you breathing more out of one nostril. Breath in, breath out.
Slow your breathing down.. and then slow it down again. Long inhales and long exhales…..slow it doooowwwwnn….
You can do this with your eyes open or closed, depending on your environment and what feels good for you right now.
Now that you’re breathing slowly, on your next in breath allow it to fill your belly and expanding your belly to the point where it moves your ribs and then exhaling it all out. If you have privacy and you feel comfortable, you can really make big noises, really allowing your whole body to expand and release. But again if you are out and about and in a more public place you can just gently focus on it yourself. No one will know. Promise.
You can bring some affirmations in with the breath for example as you breath in ‘I breath in love and light.’ and on the exhale ‘I let go of all that doesn’t serve me.’
‘I breathe in the positive, I breathe out the negative. I breathe in the positive, I breathe out the negative.’
You can just repeat this.
In and out, expansion, release, expansion, release.
And here is a life hack of this two minute reset for you that you can whip out when you REALLY need to calm your nervous system like right now!
Slow your breathing.
Sound too simple? Let me assure you this works.
The second you start to breath slower, it sends a signal to our brain that we are safe which calms the nervous system. When we are in a state of fight or flight, we start to breathe quicker, faster and this signals that there’s danger and there’s something to be frightened of. So, by slowing down your breath it will automatically signal to your brain that, for you to be breathing this slowly, for you to be breathing in this calm state – you are safe.
And once your body feels safe, everything relaxes and you feel calm. You feel centred. You can start to connect back into your heart space. You can start to open. You can start to come into your body and the tension, anxiety and fear will melt away.
AND you can do all of this in two minutes!
Two minutes! Forget the two minute noodles. Let’s do the two minute life reset. (That was a very bad attempt at humour #funnyfail NOTE TO SELF: Don’t make bad jokes about noodles, i am not sure they are ever funny.) Moving on…
Beautiful, give this a go and let me know how you go. Share this with your friends, family and soul sisters that you feel would benefit from this.
All my love on all your breaths,
