4 Stress Relief Tips Used Around the World

4  Stress Relief Tips Used Around the World

1. India: Pranayama Breathing Techniques => Sitting with your legs comfortable crossed, preferably on a pillow your palms open and facing up. Inhale deeply through your nose focusing on filling up your lungs and stomach with air. Exhale through your nose as your lungs release air and stomach pulls in as you exhale relax. Consciously focus in on each breath. Imagine breathing in the presence of God down to your cellular level and exhaling any worry, doubt or fear: Breathe in the Holy Spirit…exhale negative concerns. Repeat 10x. We breathe about 10-12 deep breaths per min. normally we breathe 20 – 25 x per min bringing in about 500 cc’s of air going into our lungs, 1/3 or ¼ of our lungs in use. When you do this breathing technique you bring in 6 x more air going in with each breath in (3000 cc’s). Respiration instruments slow down breathing to lower blood pressure. When we breathe shallow, respiration goes up because brain says we need more O2. Many studies link the cause of heart attack, stroke, asthma, panic disorders, cancer to lack of O2.

  1. Korea: To relieve stress: Clap your hands quickly together as fast as you can for one minute; face your hands together and slowly move closer, place on the parts of your body you wish to energize: for example your mind place your hands on the front and back of your head, breathe deeply.


  1. Africa: Shaking Therapy Stress Relief. When you feel spun by life pop-ups you did not sign up for simply find a safe space to literally “shake it off” stomp your feet and shake your body, add your voice ha, ha, ha, ha…as you exhale and breath in deeply. Personally I imagine beads of water that represent those things that I am giving more power to than God’s strength and wisdom within me. I then imagine shaking them off like a duck shaking off water from it’s back.


  1. Peru:Thymus Thump Stress Relief: A doctor friend of mine from Costa Rica shared the following technique, which is practiced in Peru while watching the sunrise:
  • Take your fist and lightly tap on your thymus, located 2 to 3 inches down from the U-shaped dip at the base of your neck.
  • As you tap on your chest, exhale rhythmically, “HA HA HA, HA HA HA, HA HA HA, HA HA HA,” until you have pushed all of the air out of your lungs.
  • Continue to thump lightly on your chest as you inhale deeply.
  • Repeat this technique for three to five minutes.

You will find that you experience clarity of thinking and renewed energy. This technique can be done throughout the day.

The above technique is taken from my International Best Seller: 5 Minutes to Stress Relief which is NOW AVAILABLE in Ebook format.
