3 out of 4 doctor’s visits are due to stress-related ailments and stress is the cause of 60 percent of illnesses and disease. To reduce the number of stressors we experience every day, we need to control our thinking and enter a state of mindfulness.

Although psychic readings may sound like an extremely odd way to clear your mind, it is actually very beneficial to your stress levels. Psychics provide reassurance and insight into your life that can eliminate negative stressors and help you feel more positive. If you’re having a problem that is irking you and taking control of your mind, a psychic can help you sort out the issue and provide you with a path to alleviate the situation. You can find psychics around your retreat, but be sure that you do your research before contacting a spiritual medium so that you can avoid fake psychics and online scams. Once you finish your session, try some yoga poses and see if it's easier to enter a state of meditation.
Interpret Your Dreams
Although you might be very mindful in your waking hours, your dreams can take a mind of their own. 50 percent of adults experience occasional nightmares and anxiety dreams that can bring our stressors to life. Many people who experience these dreams wake up with a feeling of sadness and depression which eats at their minds all day. If you’re one of these adults, yoga can help to clear the mind and reduce the appearance of some of these nightmares. However, if your dreams don't change, it may be worthwhile to visit a psychologist that specializes in dreams to determine what you can do to clear your dreaming mind.
Sometimes to reduce stress, we must think outside the box. These unique experiences will help you sort out the worries that are troubling your mind, spirit, and soul.
