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 disturb. Undertake keeping your frontal eminences. These are bumps on your forehead that many individuals hold instinctively when they're disturb.

For those of you who don't do this of course, 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 it is furthest out - about 3cms (1. 25 inches) above the middle of every eyebrow.

While you hold these points think about the stressful event. It may be something that has already happened, something that is about to occur, or something you fear may never occur! Gradually you should find that the stress lessens.

You may use it for small things, but you may similarly use it for more traumatic events too. If the thoughts/images are too overwhelming initially, imagine you are observing it on a TV - you may at all times switch it off If becomes too stressful - you're the one in charge. You may watch it in black and white whether or not that feels more comfortable too. Use it to defuse anything that you feel anxious, stressed, angry or fearful about.

You may want to do it assorted times covering dissimilar aspects of the problem. You may do them one after the other, or at dissimilar times, whichever feels best for you.

As you hold the points and think about/imagine the event, you will in all likelihood start to feel calmer - you may even find that you start to feel a small bored thinking about this scenario that previously stressed or angered you such a lot.

Why does it work?

These peculiar 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 often churns when you're anxious or angry), and the bladder meridian (trips to the loo/bathroom are often necessary when we're apprehensive).

Not long ago i explained this self-support technique to a business colleague - a keen mountain biker who'd had a severe bike accident at 30 miles an hour and had broken his skull and collar bone. His bones had mended, but he was now sometimes fearful of the sport he loved.

This is what he wrote to me later:

"I don't recognise in which way to thank you sufficient for the technique you described to me over the phone the other day, it helped me enormously! "

The following 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 many severe single-tracking and downhilling! ! ! I never thought I'd be doing that again - ever! Thank you such a lot! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! It was brilliant! ! ! ! ! ! ! "

It may be hard to believe that something this simple could be efficient at removing anxiety and stress, but try it and see.
