Manage Your Stress
...to live a fearless life
We all experience stress. If you're alive - you have stress! And frankly, as I've gotten older, I think, at times, I may have even more! Here is a quick and easy way to help calm yourself.
You may already know the benefits of a body massage but did you know working on your own hands also has many benefits? Once you learn this simple technique, you can help calm your mind, reduce your anxiety, and empower yourself just about anywhere and anytime!
The palm of our hands a network of nerves, that oddly enough are highly affected by stress. Working on the tender areas of the hands can help calm and balance you, and at the same time help alleviate insomnia, while increasing energy levels. I know. It sounds like magic!
Look at your palm and curl your fingers inward to see the crease where the ball of your hand ends. Just below this line between the first and second fingers, use your thumb to unwind the reflex by slowly rotating in an anti-clockwise motion. Or you can place your thumb on the reflex and apply pressure. Do several times on each hand to encourage relaxation.
Really, the easiest way to do this is to just start massaging any tight or sensitive areas. Just be sure to gently massage.
You can use this technique whenever you need to. It can help switch off your brain before bed, helping you more easily fall asleep. Or to calm yourself while at a stoplight in heavy traffic. We always have our hands with us and it’s a simple and effective technique.
