It is Looking Up for Stress Relief

No this is not related to praying, this is how your brain works. Looking up will reduce your stress?..immediately. Why, you may be asking?

All types of stress, especially emotional stress, changes how you view life. When you are tired, rundown and generally stressed, life appears harder.

Under stress, small problems appear larger. Small obstacles become insurmountable. Daily living becomes tiresome, stressful and your enthusiasm and motivation can hit rock bottom.

Stress affects your mind and how you perceive your surroundings. Your work life, home life and health will suffer.

As Hans Seyle (who wrote "The Stress of Life") once stated '90% of stresses never occur, so don't worry. Of the 10% of stresses that do occur, worry never changed them'. So don't worry.

Once stresses affect you, it is very hard to 'snap out of it'. You project your thoughts down, life becomes tough and energy levels decline.

Looking up can change this.

Your brain and mind are easily persuaded to change. Changing where you look can have dramatic effects on your stress levels. There is a saying

'The Sky's the Limit'.

This is true. Looking up makes life feel and look better. When you look up at a 20 degree angle, you access areas of your brain that release stress naturally.

Try it. Think of a stressful situation, look up and try to recall the stress. What you will find is, that it is harder to recall the stress. You may even have to move your eyes about or down to recall the stress. Even if you recall the stress, it appears a lot less stressful.

Children spend most of the day looking up at this 20 degree angle. This is why they trip over so many objects each day. It is also why children are generally happier than adults.

Each day go for a walk, just a short walk. Look up, 20 degrees only, and just relax. If you live near a park, walk around it looking up at the trees. Not the tree trunk, the leaves and branches.

On a nice summer's day, lie on your back. Spend some time watching the clouds float by. Or just look up at the deep blue sky. Buy a kite (or better still make one) and fly it.

Again another saying 'Go Fly a Kite'.

It relates to being stressed and told to go outside and look up at your flying kite. Stress simply melts away.

Looking up is easy. It is also free. Whether you live in a crowded city or a country area, looking up will open your eyes to sites you have never seen before. All while stress is melting away.

Just remember, 'the sky's the limit'. Looking up can lift your spirits, remove your stress and it helps you realize that life is abundant. Abundant in health, wealth and happiness.

There are many simple techniques you can do, that cost you nothing, and they remove stress. Most of these techniques help to prevent stress returning also. Simple, easy and effective ways to make your life more fun, relaxing and calm. For more on these techniques and many other stress relief techniques visit www.fast-stress-relief.com
