What To Do When You're Stressed

By: Godfrey Philander

This is a terrific tip from Touch For Health to support you when you're stressed, angry, anxious or trouble. Undertake keeping your frontal eminences. These are bumps on your forehead that some individuals hold instinctively when they're trouble.

For those of you who don't do this naturally, let me support you locate them. Feel up from the middle of your eyebrows going towards your hairline. Your forehead comes outwards before it curves back in towards the hairline. Hold your forehead at the points where itís furthest out - regarding 3cms (1. 25 inches) above the middle of every eyebrow.

While you hold these points think regarding the stressful event. It can be something that has already took place, something that is regarding to happen, or something you fear can never happen! Gradually you ought to find that the stress lessens.

You can use it for little things, but you can also use it for more traumatic events too. Whether or not the thoughts/images are too overwhelming initially, imagine you are watching it on a TV - you can always switch it off Whether or not becomes too stressful - you're the one in charge. You can watch it in black and white if that feels posing no difficulty too. Use it to defuse anything that you feel anxious, stressed, angry or fearful regarding.

You can want to do it various times covering different distinct features of the problem. You can do them one after the other, or at different times, whichever feels best for you.

As you hold the points and think about/imagine the event, you will probably commence to feel calmer - you can even find that you commence to feel a little bored thinking regarding this scenario that antecedently stressed or angered you so much.

Why does it work?

These particular points on the forehead, known as frontal eminences, are reflex points with connections to the central meridian (involved with the brain), the stomach meridian (and your stomach many times churns when you're anxious or angry), and the bladder meridian (trips to the loo/bathroom are many times necessary when we're apprehensive).

I recently explained this self-support technique to a business colleague - a keen mountain biker who'd had a serious bike accident at 30 miles an hour and had broken his skull and collar bone. His bones had mended, but he was now at times fearful of the sport he loved.

This is what he wrote to me later:

"I don't know how to thank you enough for the technique you described to me over the phone the other day, it helped me enormously! "

The next week he sent me this message:

"Your tip worked once again last night - went out (in the pitch black with my Light&Motion 'daylighter' light) and did some serious single-tracking and downhilling! ! ! I never thought I'd be doing that again - ever! Thank you so much! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! It was brilliant! ! ! ! ! ! ! "

It can be hard to believe that something this simple could be effective in removing anxiety and stress, but attempt it and see.
