The American Psychological Association says that 52% of American adults are coping with high levels of stress brought on by the election.
Yet, sometimes the techniques that we have been using consistently for months or years simply do not work, so today I want to share a powerful technique that quickly releases fear, anger and frustration from your mind and body. As you will see in the video, it is fun and empowering.
When stress affects the brain, with its many nerve connections, the rest of the body feels the impact as well. This technique involves your body and it makes sense that if your body feels better, so does your mind.
Some of you will want to do it with friends, some of you will want to do it in the privacy of your home, or maybe even try it while stuck in traffic. I send my students out to do this in the subway station. You stand at the front of the platform and when the train enters the station, let it rip! The noise of the train keeps anyone from hearing you.
The key to doing this technique is to let the sound come from the solar plexus not the throat. Take a deep breath and let it rip.
Let me know how it works for you and be sure to share this video with your friends and colleagues.
