Squeeze Stress Away. Thank you, Dorothy Sarnoff

Squeeze Stress Away. Thank you, Dorothy Sarnoff

http://www.juancampodonico.com/milyoki/4875 We have talked about the power of muscles before. At that time we focused on the profound and positive affects of relaxing muscles.  If we turn off muscle tension, we quiet a large collection of heavy working brain wiring. That tells the brain, “Hey, nothing much is happening….relax.” This time, we will look at the power we can have over stress when muscles are strongly flexed. The Sarnoff Squeeze Singer and actress Dorothy Sarnoff (NYT bio) noticed that Yul Brynner…

Inside or Outside? Where to Put Your Focus

Inside or Outside? Where to Put Your Focus

site annonce rencontre maroc We need an inside/outside strategy in our back pocket, ready to employ whenever our stress level is too high, or potentially headed that way. An inside strategy would involve turning inward to a large, small or moderate degree, and then doing something there.  It could be doing visualization of a calming place, person, object, pet, song, etc. It could involve watching our breathing, or doing a body scan to see how we are feeling emotionally and bodily (and both). Frequently,…

Quieting Inner Chatter and Dimming Inner Visions – Which Muscles to Relax

Quieting Inner Chatter and Dimming Inner Visions – Which Muscles to Relax

http://www.airlinetest.com/?milyokrt=kennenlernen-menschen&a41=0f Edmund Jacobson gave us Progressive Relaxation to calm our minds through quieting our muscles. In his life-long process of refining Progressive Relaxation he found a profound, rapid, and easy way for getting control of two disturbing activities that we all have: inner chatter and troubling inner visions.  These two processes keep us up at night, locks us in negative ruminations, and blasting ourselves with visions of past events or worries about the future. If we can get free or at least…

Muscle Man, Edmund Jacobson

Muscle Man, Edmund Jacobson

you can look here Edmund Jacobson devoted his life to muscles. This journey started when he was in a fire at the age of 10. He made it through the fire unscathed but he was marked deeply by it anyway. He observed previously calm adults switch into full emergency mode in seconds.  How was this possible, he wondered.  What was panic, anxiety, and courageous decisiveness in the midst of crisis? As Jacobson moved through his schooling, eventually ending up as a professor, he didn’t…

The Smile Powerhouse

The Smile Powerhouse

Photos of smiling nuns taken when they came into religious service when they were in their early 20s, reveal which will live the longest. The right type of smile, wrong type of smile, it makes a difference. While conducting research on the physiology of facial expressions in the mid-19th century, french physician Guillaume Duchenne identified two distinct types of smiles. A “Duchenne smile” involves contraction of both the zygomatic major muscle (which raises the corners of the mouth) and the…

The No Excuses Massage

The No Excuses Massage

Regular, full-body, massage has built-in barriers that keep many people from getting the benefits of touch. First, the cost. Second the nudity (even when it is strategically covered by towels). Thirdly, the time commitment. Small obstacles for some but major obstacles for many, many people. According to the American Massage Therapy Association, “In July 2008, 45 percent of women and 21 percent of men reported having a massage in the past five years.” There appears to be a gap here…

Get On The Fly

Get On The Fly

The biggest thing that stops people from trying relaxation techniques is: “Hey, I don’t have 30 minutes to meditate.”  So let’s break that down: the only way to relax is through meditation, most people assume. But that assumption is false. On-the-fly relaxation techniques are numerous, and in most ways, more effective than one or two meditation sessions per day. These regular world techniques are totally portable, invisible to others, and simple to work in. Deep Breathing – Four or five…
