Top 3 Kinesiology Tips for Stress Release

Kinesiology is a great way to help relax and relieve stress. Our bodies can hold so much stress and movement is one of the keys to releasing that stress. Tight muscles, headaches and poor posture all add to the stress on our body’s and when we are stressed, we can’t think clearly and creativity and productivity can be lost.

That’s where movement and in particular kinesiology can help. Over the course of many years I have learned many techniques to help relieve stress.

So here are my 3 best movement exercises you can do anywhere to relax your body and get it ready for creativity and productivity in your business.

Cross Crawl

How to: This can be done either sitting or standing and is simply the process of bringing your arm or elbow to your opposite knee or leg. And then repeating this on the other side. Continue until you feel this is easy and smooth.

WHY: This helps to integrate crossing the midline which is important for our brain’s ability to use both hemispheres of the brain. It can also help with balance which can deteriorate as we get older.

Auriculars

HOW TO: Use your thumbs and index fingers to pull your ears gently back and unroll them. Begin at the top of the ear and massage down and around the curve, ending with the bottom lobe. Repeat three or more times.

WHY: Stress, poor posture or just sleeping on the wrong angle can often leave us with tightness in our neck. The pressure points in our ears help to release the tension in our neck muscles giving us more movement.

Breathing into our belly

HOW TO: Rest your hands on your stomach. With your chin tucked and ribs relaxed, blow out all the air in your lungs in short, little puffs (as though keeping a feather airborne). On each short exhalation, press your navel inward toward your spine. Now take a slow, deep inhalation, gentle refilling your lungs. Repeat this a few more times.

Then slowly inhale and exhale from your belly. Arch your back slightly at the waist so the air can go even deeper. Repeat a few times. And then slowly return your breathing to normal.

WHY: It may sound funny but as we get older, stress and other factors can start to affect our breathing and we may end up breathing shallower. Consciously bringing our awareness back to our breathing can help increase our oxygen levels which is needed by our whole body.

I hope you have enjoyed these tips to help release stress in your life. Give them a go and feel the stress in your body subside.

And remember, Happiness Starts with a Smile & Empowerment Starts with a Choice!
