It is well known that we live in a world that is so full of stress. The part that is in our hands is the choice to figure out how to reduce our stress. Many do it with exercise. Others with meditation or visualization. But how about Tai Chi as an ultimate stress reducer?

This is a paid affiliate contributed post. That means it is not all entirely written by Ariel.

It is a well known fact that tai chi can help you to deal with stress, anxiety and depression. It can also help you to have a much higher level of balance and even flexibility as well.

For this reason, if you are looking for a way to reduce stress or if you want to let go of all the negative energy in your life then tai chi is a brilliant way for you to do this and it is one of the best ways for you to take back control of your life.

I remember being in college and first introduced to Tai Chi. I really resonated with it. It felt very gentle and directed movement. I felt very calm and balanced. And I so liked that it was slow. As if finding our own rhythm. And I would really like to try it again. I also heard that as we get older it is so good for our balance.

What is Tai Chi?

Tai chi is actually an ancient tradition that originated in China. It is also known for being a very graceful form of exercise. It involves slow, focused movements that are paired with deep breathing to try and give the participant a sense of relaxation.

There are many different styles of tai chi available and each one has a different method. Some focus on health, others focus on maintenance and some of them are even focused on martial arts as well. The best thing about tai chi is that it can put a very low level of stress on your joints, your muscles and your mind.

This ultimately means that it is safe for nearly everyone, and it is especially safe for those who are older or even those who do not have a lot of muscle strength. Tai chi is normally done in groups but if you don’t feel comfortable with this then you’ll find that there are online Taichi lessons that you can take to try and learn the basics.

 

 

Stress

Tai chi is brilliant at helping with stress. When you are stressed, you may find that this affects your body as much as your mind. Your muscles may tense up and you may even feel as though you get aches, pains and unexplained bouts of sluggishness. This can have a serious impact on your work and it can also have an impact on your life in general.

Tai chi can really help you with this and the main reason is because it helps to reduce the amount of tension that is in the muscles. You may find that you feel more relaxed after and that you feel lighter and that a huge weight has been lifted off your shoulders.

The best thing about tai chi is that you don’t need to shower after and that you can do it just about anywhere. This could include your living room, bedroom, at work or anywhere else similar.

Depression

Tai chi is also great at fighting depression. If you do suffer from depression then you will probably find it hard to get out of bed. Your body may feel heavy and you may not feel as though you can move on with the day ahead.

Depression can even make it hard for you to make breakfast in the morning as well, so it helps to start out the morning with something that can help you to stay focused.

Tai chi is the ultimate solution for this because when you climb of bed, the slow and focused movements can help you to get out of the slump you’re in and it can also help you to really get out there and be ready for the day ahead.

It can motivate you and it can also give you a sense of accomplishment, and when you do suffer from depression, this is one of the best things for you.

Anxiety

If you suffer from anxiety then tai chi is a great solution for this and it can help you to channel your anxious or negative thoughts into something more positive.

The best thing about Tai Chi is that it is very slow and focused, so if you are feeling worried or if you are feeling like your mind is running at 100mph then this can slow everything down and it can also give you a sense of calm and tranquility as well.

It can prepare you for the day ahead and it can even help you to take control of your life because Tai Chi can help you to unlock a more positive mindset than ever before.

Tai Chi is really the best way for you to fight various mental health problems, and this can include stress, depression and even anxiety as well. It is one of the best ways for you to move forward and it is the ideal start to any morning as well.

In any dealing with our mental health, make sure you ask your health provider if this will work for you first.

And know that there are so many options that are here to help and promote us into a state of thriving. Do seek help.

I wish you greater mental health and ease and loads of comfort! Do give Tai Chi a chance and let me know what you think of it. I hope it is something that really brings you to full vibrancy and rising.

In peace and gratitude,

  1. Oh, Ariel, great article. I have always wondered about Tai-Chi. Your article has surely lifted the veil from my eyes. I think it is the ‘breathing’ that really does the balancing of the ‘chi’. If everyone would just ‘breathe’ before they start their day, things would not be so overwhelming. I usually take a few minutes to ‘just breathe’ and then continue with my day. It certainly helps to ‘balance’ or ‘center’ me.

  2. Hi Ariel,
    Thank you for this information on Tai Chi. I have taken a few group classes from time to time, and have enjoyed them. As you say it is steady gentle and controlled movements that strengthen your core and improve your balance as well as your inner balance and peace. I need to find a group and do more of it!

    1. Hello Annie, I so want to be able to do it again. I just loved the meditative sense of movement. Do let me know if you try it. IN peace and gratitude, ariel
