Our Favourite anxiety relief tools shared with Healthline
Our friends at Healthline recently asked us to share our favourite tools for anxiety relief. Here's what made it onto our list.
Dr. Edward Bach discovered the Original Bach Flower Remedies which is a system of 38 Flower Remedies that corrects emotional imbalances where negative emotions are replaced with positive. The Bach Flower Remedies work in conjunction with herbs, homeopathy and medications and are safe for everyone, including children, pregnant women, pets, elderly and even plants. We recommend the Rescue Remedy blend to all of our listeners.
If you are looking for a self help technique to help you reduce feelings of stress and anxiety we highly recommend EFT Tapping. We both use EFT regularly for overcoming challenges, emotional stress or blocks from our past.
EFT Tapping or Emotional Freedom Techniques, is a combination of ancient Chinese Acupressure and Modern Psychology, now known as Energy Psychology. It’s an easy to learn technique that involves "tapping" on the meridian points of the body while repeating statements that help us focus on an issue from which we are seeking relief.
The Calming Point
The Calming Point is found right in the centre of the palm of your hand. Ayurveda teacher Dr Vasant Lad has introduced this vital energy point as a valuable aid in reducing anxiety.
To find the point make a fist with your left hand and look for where your middle finger touches your palm. Now press that point with the thumb of your right hand for about a minute while you take deep steady breaths.
Relax your jaw and let your shoulders drop and relax as you hold the point and keep taking slow deep breaths.
Herbal tea can help calm a troubled mind. Drinking herbal tea can also be a great source of vitamins and minerals. We love drinking Pukka Tea to calm our nerves and nourish our bodies. Our favorite Pukka Blends include Licorice, Chamomile, and Mint.
For anxiety relief we recommend Pukka Relax, Pukka Love Tea, and Clipper Calmer Chameleon
Transition to Calm MP3
Transition to Calm is part of our private collection of guided relaxations and breathing exercises created to ease stress and anxiety. Anxiety Slayer has several relaxation albums available on Amazon, iTunes and CD Baby with original music composed by Ananga and all tracks voices by Shann.
