How To Reduce Stress And Ease Worry In Minutes

Stress is everywhere, we realize it’s unhealthy, and we all know the problems it can lead to. Many of us feel we actually should do some thing about this, although the trouble with stress is when we are in it’s grip it’s hard to do a whole lot about anything at all.

Meditation, relaxation and visualisation are the standard tips for reducing stress, and they are all effective and useful to us in many ways, however, they aren’t so easy to set into use when stress attacks with it’s disruptive travel companions frustration, confusion, and anxiety in full attendance.

Here’s something simple you can try to diffuse stress quickly and easily, anytime and anywhere.

1. rub your forehead with both hands in vertical lines from your eyebrows to your hairline for a few moments

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

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

4. breathe deeply again and allow yourself to sink into how you are really feeling right now – focus clearly and specifically on the one thing that is mainly causing you stress, or anxiety

5. allow yourself to think the truth of the matter, hold the points and breathe and remain that way for a couple of minutes

6. concentrate on the area you are holding and feel for pulsations under your fingertips as the blood flow, previously diverted by stress, is restored to your forebrain. Now you can begin to think clearly again as you feel stress drain away and find yourself in control and able to choose how you wish to respond to what’s at hand.

What many of us don’t realise about stress is that although it is often triggered by our mental states and emotional responses it is in fact a physiological occurrence. The body responds directly to every impression we feed it be it real or imagined; it makes no difference to the body. If you tell it you are stressed it will respond immediately by sending the majority of the blood from your forebrain to your chest for faster breathing and the more efficient pumping of blood through your heart and to the muscles of your legs for whatever action they may need to take.

When you consider this automatic physical response it’s easy to see why we don’t always think well under stress. This simple technique tells your body to stand down and encourages the blood flow to return to the brain for clear thinking and decision-making.

Try this for:

- diffusing stress on the spot and stopping it from accumulating

- easing worries

- regaining control of your resources and having access to your full capacity for dealing with any given situation.

- preventing the digestive disorders associated with stress developing. (Use this before eating to make sure that your digestive system is ready and willing to receive the goodness from your food in a calm and efficient manner.)

- relaxing and clearing your mind before sleep

- inducing a feeling of calm from which you can then step deeper into a meditative or relaxed state

3 Things That Can Help or Hurt Your Stress Levels

Of all of the different things that we need to handle regularly, stress is one that is going to really cause us a lot of problems. As a matter of fact, stress is not only difficult for us to handle mentally, it can actually cause physical problems and can even cost you your life. That is why it is important for you to make sure that you are reducing your stress levels to the extent that you can and keeping them out of your life whenever possible. One of the easiest ways for you to do this is to identify the things that are causing the stress in your life. Here are 3 of them.

Improper Time Management – This is probably to blame for almost all of the stress that many of us experience. All of us are going to be under some pressure whenever it comes to the duties that we have at work and the responsibilities that we have at home. If we are unable to manage them properly, our stress levels are going to rise and it is actually going to stop us from accomplishing the things that need accomplished. Look into proper time management and you will be able to deal with stress naturally.

Dehydration And Lack of Sleep – It is not always things that are easily identified in your life that can be causing the stress. As a matter of fact, simple things such as dehydration and lack of sleep can lead to higher stress levels which really compound on themselves. Make sure that you’re drinking plenty of water every day and get the proper amount of sleep whenever possible. You will find that you are accomplishing more and that your stress levels are much lower.

Work and No Play – If there is one thing that all of us need, it’s a break from time to time from the things that we are doing in life. We may find that we are working all of the time and not taking any time for recreation or to simply get up and move around a little bit. Even if you only take 10 minutes every couple of hours in order to sit quietly and meditate on something pleasant, you will see a reduction in the amount of stress that you have. If you can get away for a few days or perhaps even take the weekend off for once, your stress will reduce even further.
