Coronavirus. Economic upheaval. Job losses. Turmoil in schools trying to teach kids by Zoom video conference. Race riots. Mass shootings.
It’s enough to make anybody feel more than a little overwhelmed.
The American Psychological Association reports “We are facing a national mental health crisis that could yield serious health and social consequences for years to come.”
Nearly half of adults (49%) report their behavior has been negatively affected. Most commonly, they report increased tension in their bodies (21%), “snapping” or getting angry very quickly (20%), unexpected mood swings (20%), or screaming or yelling at a loved one (17%).
Along with tried and true stress management techniques including exercise, meditation and breathing exercises, I’ve created some simple-to-follow videos showing how you can re-set the stress out of your brain.
During my 27 years in natural healing, I have studied and practiced a wide variety of modalities to heal the brain.
The techniques that I demonstrate here come from a system called Total Body Modification, or TBM.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, hopeless, troubled or uncertain, follow along to these videos and re-set the stress in your brain in this order:
You can do these techniques for yourself as well as for your loved ones.
Your hypothalamus is a small central region of your brain that maintains homeostasis.
Here’s how to re-set stress out of your hypothalamus:
- Shut your eyes.
- Rub the temporal fossae on both sides.
- Inhale, exhale and breathe for about 30 seconds.
Your pituitary gland is referred to as the master gland of your body. It regulates your adrenal glands and thyroid as well as many body functions.
Here’s how to re-set stress out of your pituitary:
- Put the heel of one hand at the base of your skull.
- Put the heel of your other hand below the bridge of your nose.
- As you inhale, lift firmly. Exhale and relax.
- Repeat 3 to 4 times.
Your pineal gland is sometimes referred to as the seat of your soul. It regulates your melatonin, a serotonin-derived hormone that regulates your sleep and circadian rhythms.
Here’s how to re-set stress out of your pineal gland:
- Place your hands above your ears.
- As you inhale, press in and up lightly and gently. Exhale and relax.
- Repeat 3 to 4 times.
Your brain is the most important organ in your body.
When you practice techniques to release stress out of your brain, you can think more clearly, overcome depression and anxiety, maintain healthy hormone balance and experience naturally high levels of personal energy.
If you recognized you are feeling stressed, you can use these techniques throughout the day.
I often think of the hypothalamus, pituitary and pineal like the circuit breakers in your house.
When everything functions normally, electricity flows.
When your circuits become overwhelmed, the circuit breaker in your house shuts the electricity off.
As you re-set your hypothalamus, pituitary and pineal regularly, you can find yourself feeling more resilient and able to cope with whatever stress life throws your way.
