How to calm yourself when you are in a tough spot


There are times when the stress of life gets too much. Your body is tense. You don’t sleep well. You get depressed. Things just don’t go your way. Everywhere you turn, something bothers you & someone bothers you.

There’s no ease to be found in the moment.

Recently, I went through a week just like that. It was a really long week. I had been travelling more than usual. There was paper piled up everywhere. My to-do list was several pages long. I’d also been doing in-depth research on trauma & the stories that I read were quite disturbing.

I thought that I was doing a good job managing stress, by using every healing technique that I know of. During the day I felt fine, but in the middle of the night, the tension in my body would wake me up.

It was then I decided to do something that I hadn’t done in a while; something that I cycle through every now and then. That’s the technique I’m sharing with you in the video below with simple sounds and movements.

Try this and let me know your experience by leaving a comment below.

Peace & blessings to you!
