2 Minute Stress Relief - How To
Sometimes certain people, things or places can stress us out, so it is useful to have a few tools in your back pocket that can help you relieve some of that tension.
This is a very simple self-guided relaxation technique you can use, even if you are hiding out in the ladies at work!
- Start by taking a couple of deep breaths, in through the nose and out through the mouth.
- Close your eyes and pay attention to the anxiety/stress that you are feeling
- Ask yourself where do you feel that in your body? If it were a colour what colour would it be?
- Then, by using your breath as a control, move all of the feelings together into one part of your body if they are separate. Each exhalation is a good place to do this.
- When all of that sensation is in one place, move it again, on the exhalation, but this time move to the mouth
- Finally, take a really deep breath in through the nose, and blow out all of that colour and sensation right out of your mouth.
You will feel much lighter and less shaky!
