Dads are expected to have strong shoulders—at least metaphorically. And while they don’t necessarily shoulder the entire responsibility for their family, the heavy burden they carry with love can make dads’ shoulders stiff and heads hot. Chronic stress often goes along with it too, bringing many health issues, big or small.
A busy life can make it hard to deal with stress and tension that never seems to end, but a simple moving meditation that’s also good for the brain can help. It doesn’t take much time and can be done anywhere (except maybe while driving). You don’t need to learn anything and you don’t need much practice before it starts to work. Your shoulders, neck, and head relax, your breathing gets deeper, and your mind gets calmer and clearer in just about five minutes of doing what New York Times bestselling author and meditation expert Ilchi Lee calls Brain Wave Vibration.
To get the benefits of Brain Wave Vibration, all you need to do is shake. Of course, there are more techniques than that, which are explained and guided in our line of Brain Wave Vibration products, all of which are on sale until Father’s Day for 30 percent off. But in a nutshell, making vibrations with your own body is the equivalent of giving yourself a massage or going back to the days when your mother rocked you to sleep; it’s soothing and relaxing and even slows down your brain waves.
Our line of discounted Father’s Day gifts also includes other items that are good for your brain and soothing for the body. Here’s what we recommend.
