Are You Feeling Stressed,
Overwhelmed And Are Full Of Anxiety? We are
going to slowly ease that tension out of the
1] Sit on a chair with legs crossed.
Pretend that your ankle is a pen and use it to write the
alphabet. Repeat with the other ankle.
Next, place your thumbs at the edge of your
eyebrows, on each side of our head. Slide them
up, stopping at the corner of the head, almost
into the hairline. Press the thumbs into each
side of the forehead; hold for a few seconds and
then release. Repeat five times. By doing this,
you release emotional stress because these
pressure points are linked to the emotional
centre of the brain.
3] Eat an
orange. The vitamin C helps detoxify the body.
Chewing on a handful of roasted cashew nuts can
also be a good upper. Nuts contain magnesium and
essential fatty acids that help boost moods.
4] Change the breathing. Lie
on your back, with the fingertips of one hand nesting
between the breastbone and the solar plexus. Place the
other hand on the belly. Taking deep breath through your
nose push out your stomach as you inhale, thus filling
your lungs. Hold for a few seconds and then slowly
exhale. As oxygen replenishes your brain, use your
fingertips to lightly stimulate the calming areas of
your body and you’ll feel more relaxed.
5] The brain believes in the images it receives. So
creative visualisation can quickly top up your happiness
levels. Imagine the sun sending heat and light to your
arms and legs. Soak in that sensation and feel the joy
slowly seeping in.
6] The following stretching exercises help release
tension. To make the most of each stretch, hold each
position for 20 to 30 seconds and repeat each exercise
two or three times.
Slowly bend your head down and up, looking down at your
chest and then up to the ceiling.
Slowly bend your head side to side as though you are
going to touch your ear to each shoulder, while keeping
your shoulders down.
Slowly rotate your head from side to side as though you
are going to look over each shoulder.
Interlace your fingers behind your head and press your
elbows toward the wall behind you.
Do these exercises at least twice a day, and see and
feel the difference. If they still don't work, go and
see your doctor. He might be able to suggest other ways
to beat the stress, so that it does not affect your
efficiency at work.
