Is it possible that you are feeling more stressed these days?
I want to remind you of some of the resources that I have posted in the past and some newer ones. More than likely you have the time to explore these resources and use them to help your mental health. Calming your mind and clearing your negative emotions is much more important than brushing your teeth! Stress reduction should be done several times a days for good health! So many people neglect the importantance of daily mental hygiene. Today is a good time to start!
First there is Stress Busters…an article that I wrote several years ago.
It gives an introduction to EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) also known as Tapping. Reflexercise, a body positioning technique that quickly relaxes both the mind and body, Trauma Releasing Exercises which dispel stressors and Heart Math heart coherence technique
The following site has a wealth of information about EFT
EcoMeditation is a guided 22 minute meditation that has impressive clinical results
EcoMeditation produced extraordinarily high levels of Gamma Synchrony. In two days, many participants acquired elevated brain states normally found only after years of meditation practice. EcoMeditation facilitated participants’ ability to induce and sustain the alpha brain waves characteristic of high-level emotional, mental, and spiritual integration. … participants were able to carry elevated mental states into waking consciousness.
That last sentence is important. You don’t just experience elevated emotional states during your meditation practice. When you open your eyes and go about your day, you carry them with you.
Studies are now measuring the precise effects of EcoMeditation. Dr. Dawson Church and colleagues assessed 208 participants at a one-day retreat. In just 6 hours, their anxiety decreased by 23% and their pain by 19%. Their happiness increased 9%. When we followed up with them 6 months later, we found that they’d maintained their gains in anxiety and depression over time, and were even happier (Church et al., 2019).
In another study, after an EcoMeditation weekend, the baseline cortisol levels of the 34 participants dropped by 29%. Their immune markers rose by 27%. Their resting heart rate, a measure of overall health, improved by 5%, while their pain levels decreased by 43% (Groesbeck et al., 2017).

(I like the version with music. There are several long pauses in the script which I thought the playback had stopped. With the music version you know that it is still playing)
