Here’s a super-easy quick fix for whenever you’re feeling stressed or worried, for whatever reason. You can do it any time, any place – even when you’re surrounded by people. And once you know how to do it, it’ll become second nature, helping you gently let go of whatever is bothering you in a matter of seconds.
Sounds good? Here’s how to do it!
If you are feeling tense, stressed or worried, this exercise takes less than 60 seconds to release those feelings:
- Sit or stand still and close your eyes.
- Focus on your feet contacting with the floor and imagine yourself growing strong roots, deep into the earth, like a tree. You might imagine seeing or feeling these roots growing, anchoring and grounding you.
- Focus for a moment on the feeling. Ask yourself, “Where in my body do I feel this?”
- With your next in-breath, breathe in to this area of your body, imagining the breath is absorbing the tension or stress.
- With the next out-breath, breathe the feeling out through your body, down your legs and through your feet into the earth. Breathe it out gently, allowing it to flow away, rather than forcing it.
- Continue with this breath for a minute or so, until the feeling has completely gone.
Repeat whenever necessary.
There you go – easy – and quick.
