Five simple ways to release anxiety through yoga breathing, movement, and touch
An article by our Well-being Ambassador Giuliana Wheater and her video!
Well, the sun is out in the UK and the exams are over.
However mental health is still massively and frighteningly on the rise. Many of us are barely hanging on by a thread.
This week I am sharing with you five simple yoga breaths, movement, and touch techniques to help release stress and anxiety, to combat the enemy of the brain -myelin- which is produced when we are under long term anxiety or stress, and to get those happy and coping neurotransmitters reaching for their party hats again.
These simple exercises will ground you, bring you to the present moment and stimulate all four of those major neurotransmitters which help us to cope and function. These neurotransmitters are needed for self-esteem, happiness, confidence, clear thinking, perspective, good judgment, better sleep, motivation, and focus, as well as for stimulating our emotional intelligence – bringing our rational brains to the forefront.
They are inclusive of everyone and can be self-administered discreetly at any time, so very empowering.
It is so important to have the tools we need whenever those horrible anxious feelings start to build.
So, look after each other as well as yourselves.
Be kind always because you never know if you are someone’s last hope or if they have no hope at all.
We are in this together.
Lots of love, Giuliana xx
