For so many people right now, managing stress is a real challenge. Having good tools is essential to stress management – and actually it’s not about managing stress, it’s about transforming it.
Want to shake some stress out of your body right now?
Want to release anxiety out of your body?
Just need a pep up? Energising?
This is a quick and easy technique for doing just that. An effective way to shift your state is using your physiology – your physical body and its ability to move. The Mood Mover™ is a fast way to do this, and it works a treat! Have fun using this crazy little technique to shift your state when you’re not feeling totally resourceful.
If you’re experiencing tension in your body, overwhelm, worry or anxiety, take a moment to do the Mood Mover and see what a difference it makes. Sometimes you might need to do it twice or for a bit longer to help the chemistry in the body to move and release.
Stand up, ground yourself, and then shake your hands vigorously. Lift them above your shoulders and keeping shaking!
Then look up to the ceiling and turn up the corners of your mouth.
As you look straight up, notice it’s not easy to have a serious thought – in fact it’s impossible to have a serious thought as you look up!
And when you turn up the corners of your mouth, serotonin is automatically released in the brain, it is a biological response.
And now, say Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes!
Now, as you bring your hands down and relax your body, is that old feeling there, or has it gone now? I expect it is gone.
You have just changed the chemistry throughout your whole body.
Please don’t be put off by making sound with this one. If necessary just do the ‘Yes yes yes’ part in your head only if you’re within earshot of someone, but don’t let it stop you. I’ve had all sorts of clients use this in all sorts of situations from barristers just before they go into court to kids outside the classroom before they go into a test. And a few brave souls who have taught it to their teams and use it to kick off or enliven team meetings. Enjoy!
This is more than stress management, this is about taking charge of how you experience your life.
