3 Top Tips for Stress-relief

Anxiety-relief, Stress/Anger Management sessions are available in Birchington & Whitstable, Kent and Harley Street, London W1.

If you have been put off meditation in the past, I would prefer you read the following with an open mind.  In fact, I would prefer you to think of the following technique as a stress relief strategy.  Meditation isn’t just about slowing the brainwaves, it is conclusively proven to boost your energy and vitality significantly.  Hormones re-balance, mood improves and relationships improve.  Whilst quietening the mind for a few minutes each day, you will be able to look back at the cumulative benefits in surprising ways.   Occasionally a moment of bliss, an inspiration or a higher state of consciousness becomes available to you.  Higher states of consciousness simply feel like freedom…freedom from the mind’s usual identity, nagging fears and concerns.

Tip 1.  Releasing negative emotions:  Deep relaxation is possible for everyone.  Become aware of any uncomfortable feelings in your body.   Sit calmly with them in a state of acceptance as you allow them to release.  All emotions that feel uncomfortable are caused by disruptions in your energy system that you have the power to release.   If you just sit still with an intention to allow the emotion to pass… it will.

Tip 2.  Yoga Breath:  Take Three conscious breaths. Allow yourself to focus on your breath and just notice inhaling and exhaling through the nose.  Inhale…pause and exhale.  For the first three breaths, push your breath all the way out.   The breath out stimulates your parasympathetic nervous system to rest and relax.

Tip 3.   Taoist Meditation Technique:   This is a fun Taoist technique that I personally use a lot.  Direct your focus back into the centre of your brain as if looking out through that space between your eyebrows.  Imagine you are a little Buddha sitting crossed-legged on a bed of cushions in the centre of your brain behind your eyebrows.  This stimulates the pineal gland, responsible for higher states of conscious.  If thoughts intrude, repeat a mantra such as ‘release and let go’.

The body can only take so much tension and stress before the body gives you a warning.  There are now hundreds of scientifically documented benefits, too numerous to mention here, that recommend meditation to support and maintain vibrant health and wellbeing.

Testimony from David Lynch:  “It has given me effortless access to unlimited reserves of energy, creativity and happiness deep within.  This level of life is sometimes called “pure consciousness” And this level is deep within us all.”

Are you sensitive to stress or sugar?

Sugar and spice might create little girls that are nice, but sugar and stress creates distress in the form of weight gain.  

Are you sensitive to stress or sugar?  Sugar is added to so many foods that you may have been consuming more than you realised.  In addition, stress has become a ‘normal’ state which contributes to extra sugar being dumped into the blood stream and converted back into fat around the middle.    Stress and sugar levels are in a state of constant rebalancing.  Too much of any results in hormone imbalance – cravings – more weight (especially round the middle) and more stress!

How can stress spike sugar levels in the blood? ~  Feeling pressured or overwhelmed would do it.  Sleep deprivation is another serious stress affecting most parents!    Stress linked to  work pressures, not enough time, dissatisfaction with self,  body image, money worries, comparing self to others, feelings of ‘not enough’, unhappiness, anger,  frustration, guilt, blame….  consider now, what are your current stressors?

Rate yourself out of 10, with 10 feeling very stressed and 0 feeling neutral – how stressed have you felt over the last month?
Anything over 5 is too high.  Find one thing you can do to release this stress within the next few hours?

Do you have  fat around your middle but don’t know why?
This is another symptom of stress and food sensitivity, often caused by eating whilst stressed.

“If you are insterested in learning more, read on…”

So why does stress cause sugar sensitivity?  Stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline spike sugar levels.  Your gut has a memory….so you may have become sensitive to sugar during this time without realising.  An explosive argument can be an approx equivalent of about 5 bars of chocolate.

Stress – Sugar Sensitivity – Weight gain ~  Stress not only causes your blood sugar levels to fluctuate, spike and gain weight.  The resulting crash in sugar causes sugar cravings, having you reach for the chocolate, carbs, sweets…All of this  is a core contributor to food intollerances, especially sugar sensitivity.

If that wasn’t enough, your gut makes associations  with the foods you are eating  to the ‘unhappy’ stress you are feeling and REMEMBERS….

Enzymes are needed to digest your food and enzymes are blocked by the stress hormone cortisol.  Stressful feelings = poor digestion, food intolerance, IBS …. more stress.  Good feelings = easy, comfortable, calm digestion.

Can you reset your gut memory? 

Yes – definitely.

How to create a calm comfortable gut

1.  Re-map gut memory associated to stress

2.  Re-map your beliefs associated to stress

3.  Relax and enjoy a healthy, balanced lifestyle that includes sugar, in fact anything with good feelings.
