Quick Tip: One Way to Reduce Stress & Anxiety

Quick Tips Post It

The body has some very neat in-built resources for dealing with things. Here's a favourite tip of mine for reducing anxiety, it's called the Emotional Stress Relief technique and it's one of the many useful tips I picked up when studying Kinesiology.

- about an inch above each eyebrow you will find a bump – rest your fingertips there lightly and hold

- take a deep breathe in and lighten the pressure of your fingertips until they are touching the points very softly

- breathe deeply again and allow yourself to sink into how you are really feeling right now, slow your breathing if you can and focus clearly and specifically on the one thing that is mainly causing you anxiety

- concentrate on the area you are holding and feel for pulsations under your fingertips as the blood flow, previously diverted by stress and anxiety, is restored to your forebrain.

Now you can begin to think clearly again as you feel the anxiety drain away and find yourself in control and able to choose how you wish to respond to what’s at hand.
