IS THE MOST COMFORTING, EFFECTIVE AND EFFORTLESS WAY TO REDUCE STRESS, DAILY
We all accumulate mental, emotional and physical stress daily. That is why we need to reduce it daily. Otherwise it becomes chronic stress and elevates other chronic conditions such as chronic insomnia, chronic pain, chronic anxiety, chronic fatigue and more.
In general, there are four types of people with regards to stress: Those that are not aware that they are stressed and therefore do nothing about it. Those that are aware but take it as the inevitable normal life and do nothing about it. Those that are aware and don’t know how to cope with conflicts and stress so they use alcohol, drugs, prescription and OTC as their way to escape and “solve” their problems. Those that are aware and explore and implement various ways such as meditation, acupuncture, massage and yoga.
Group 4 is growing and many workplaces, schools, and individuals, add yoga and meditations as part of wellness programs and preventive life style.
Yet still, to many people, stress is the elephant in the room. It exists and never goes away no matter what they do. Many people in group 4 try several ways to reduce stress and are frustrated because the tools they have tried didn’t work for them.
The reason – we live in an era of overwhelming triggers from the external world and as results of interpretation of reality we analyze in our heads. We want to do too many things at the same time, we have huge demands at work and in our family environment.
THERE ARE MANY TOOLS TO REDUCE STRESS, YET THEY DEMAND EFFORTS, FOCUS AND CONSISTENCY. THE PROBLEM IS THAT WHEN WE ARE STRESSED WE DON’T HAVE INNER RESOURCES AND VITALITY.
Meditation is a great tool yet you are required to get into attentiveness mode and pass the first gate of silence in order to sink into serenity so that it will positively impact and reduce mental, emotional, and physical stress simultaneously. Yoga is wonderful, yet it demands physical and mental commitment. Acupuncture and massage are very effective, yet, can you allow yourself to go to a therapist daily?
WHAT IS VIBROACOUSTIC THERAPY: Olav Skille – the inventor of Vibroacoustic Therapy (Norway/Finland) was a principal in a disabled children’s school. As he was playing his bass, he noticed that the closer he got to the children, the less stressed they were and their body movement grew. He was fascinated by the idea that it was the harmonic low sound frequencies of the bass that had a mental and emotional impact of reduction of stress.
