Hello, and welcome to relaxation, hypnosis for stress, anxiety, and panic attacks. My name is Jason Newland, please only listen to this, when you can safely Close your eyes.
I hope you're well and done something today. That was not bad, or done something today that I don't normally do.
But a little preparation for this recording. And I've even made notes, can you believe it? Only like headlines? Because I thought it might be useful to mention some useful things that you might be able to do. That might be helpful, you know. And I might have mentioned some this before. So if I have you ever listened to that, then please forgive me. Although repetition is useful. So I made a list of some stuff, and I'll make a few comments and tell you about some of my personal experiences with these things. Some useful actions that you can take to help with reducing your stress, anxiety, panic, and maybe also dealing with the issues surrounding it, as well. So I'm just going to go through them. So there's a few, a lot of this is really obvious, but I find it's sometimes the most obvious blatant stuff that that's useful. I also find and I don't know about you, sometimes when a friend or someone that I know, offers me some advice. I don't seem to like this. And again, it might just be me. But for example, they might say, Oh, you got anxiety, have you tried this, whatever this is, and stray away, I can't seem to have a wall comes up. And it's the same thing that happens when I meet someone new, and they tell me their name. I just stopped listening. Or if I asked for directions, which is a time when I really shouldn't be listening and I just for some reason blink out a bit.
So I thought maybe coming from somebody different. Because I think sometimes it might, it feels like they're not really interested.
Maybe it is saying if you try this in order to no longer talk about what it is that we're concerned with. Be it might not be the case though. So very obvious facts, the first one and this fits in with what I do, as with my hypnosis podcasts. So here's the first thing I wrote down sleep, decreases stress and anxiety. And that's basically decent sleep. And that fits in with what I do because I've got a few sleep podcasts which are pretty popular and Literally just read. Someone just sent me a message on Facebook saying that every time they listen, listen to one of the deep sleep whisper hypnosis sessions that he falls asleep straight away. So that just happens to be at the top of the list. I could go on about sleep.
Personally, when I was going through the hardest part of the panic time times I found the The only thing that I really felt I was able to do. Not always but a lot of the time was to just lay in bed on my own with quiet and just relax.
And it got to the point where when I've visited people, I'd sometimes say I just need to go and lay down. I can lay down for half an hour. And usually it was okay. I only did it with people that I knew well my family or like a good friend. I wouldn't wouldn't do in someone's house that I'd done. He just met. Oh, by the way can lay on your bed, please. You know that would sound a bit weird. There's one time I visited my friend and in London. And I got out there traveled up there. Probably on the Friday evening. Saturday morning, got up, everything's fine. We went to take his dog for a walk. And we couldn't have got more than 200 yards from his flat and my legs went numb. I literally couldn't feel my legs. I had a panic, big panic attack. I was like, No, you know, other stuff happened is like Oh, and I said to him, I can't go back. And what was annoying, he got angry. Because I traveled up to visit him to see him. And we will call it doing things we used to do before I moved away. But I couldn't. I couldn't walk down the street without being able to fill my feet and my legs. So I had to go back and lay down on on his bed for an hour or so. And then I was okay. If I had to push myself to keep doing it to keep walking there's no way of knowing. I mean, obviously I didn't do it on why I've been okay, I would have been okay, I wouldn't have wouldn't have died or anything I would have been okay that way. But there's this, some of the books and I did read quite a few books on anxiety and panic attacks, especially at that time. And someone said he's got to push through it. You got to you know, if you feel you're going to fail, you got to continue anyway. And you got to you know, continue through it and don't kind of don't let it be you which I understand the concept of that you don't give into something but
in the same way it's an illness and it is debilitating. And it is for me to say you know if someone says Oh,
don't keep going through, you can hold your hand on it kill. Eventually the kills gonna call down. But your hands gonna be in a lot of pain during that process. And I know once I went on, went on a retrieved Buddhist retreat, which you know, is supposed to be really relaxing and calm and I spent about four Live days in continuous anxiety, panic mode, not the whole time, but continuously going back there to that extreme anxiety. And I pushed myself because I'd read in a book called push yourself, don't get into it. And I ended up coming back. So I went there on the on Boxing Day. And I came back New Year's Day, or New Year's Eve rather. So however many days those are, might be the day after boxing days as well, five days and always absolutely drained. At the end of it, drained of all energy, and are almost felt like I'd gone back, I've gone backwards.
And I really, really felt like I was making a bit of progress. And then, but pushing myself like that was harmful actually, mentally and emotionally. To me. So I'm not saying don't, don't do anything, don't push yourself a bit, if that's what you want to do. But maybe be gentle. You know, figure out what's right for you. And don't give yourself a hard time if you're not perhaps doing what you might have read in a book. Because that book is not going to be for everybody. You know, everyone's different levels, everyone has different experiences. It's it's a guide guideline, these books on how to help with anxiety. It's not everything is going to be useful to everybody. Whether it's a podcast was a video, whether it's a YouTube lecture, wherever I snore is going to be useful to everyone, every single thing. And after that, I never pushed myself like that again. You know, it's if you if you break your leg, you stop walking on it. Even if you're not sure if it's broken, you stop walking on it. If you bruise your leg and it's really hurts. Basically, you start walking on it and to find out what's wrong with it until it heals you badly bruise your ankle or your foot you careful with it doesn't have to be broken, to be painful and to need gentleness caring kindness I could go on and on and on about every subject Bobby forever so I won't. But
going back to the sleep I found and I still do it's not even sleeping so much sometimes just laying down or sitting back in a chair to support your body. Maybe listen to some music acquired by listening to nothing. Just listening to the background sounds maybe the birds in the garden maybe just the sounds of people in the garden or the cars going past you know just sound to the wind. So other things so what else I got this and this and things you can ask yourself some questions you can ask yourself So when it comes to being stressed about something, worrying about something, you can ask yourself a question. And you can stick that question there, you can write on a piece of paper, carry around with you. And just ask yourself this question. Whenever your mind gets a bit too locked a bit too stuck. When those thoughts are causing stress and anxiety, ask the question. Am I going to get paid for thinking about this? Am I going to get paid money? But thinking about this? Or how much am I going to get paid? But thinking about this? I'm not gonna win a gold medal for thinking about this. You can reword it however you want. But how am I going to get paid with thinking about this? Which is another way of asking, is that any point? What am I gaining? from thinking, overthinking, worrying about this thing? which is causing distress? Am I going to get paid for thinking about this? If the answer is yes. Then it's up to you what you do? It's up to you what you do anyway. But if the answer is no, let it go. If the answer's no, let it go. So what's the next one? So these are different techniques and different things. Mindfulness against not something that I came up with this is a very, very popular thing has been for a while I discovered mindfulness, probably you want to go into Buddhism. Because one of the meditation practices was the mindfulness of breathing. But mindfulness, as I discovered, is much more than that. You can be mindful, whatever you're doing, with your washing up, you're just walking even. I like to do walking meditation. When I'm out, when I'm walking to the shops, by for me, it's not just focusing on my feet on the floor, the movement of my feet, moving on the floor, as I walk. Also, my hands sway in a body move in my spine, the feeling of the wind or the temperature of the air. just general things warm hearing, in the background, when in the foreground, and even what's happening right now, as a walk through the air, walk in and feeling that movement of my knees, my hips. And
also noticing what I'm thinking as well. just noticing the thoughts and just let them go. Let them just flow. So for me, mindfulness is something that you can do, you could do it as a meditation, which is really, really good thing to do, I think, and has been proven medically, scientifically, to change the chemistry of the brain, of your brain, my brain to create new neural pathways to calm the brain to stimulate that part of the brain, which sends, I don't know what the chemicals are. The endorphins are wherever they are, to the body. So you have a sense of calm And feeding in a wellbeing, relaxation. So mindfulness can be it's also kind of the opposite as well to what we perhaps want to do. So if we have, if you got a feeling that some comfortable, which we all have, regardless of stress or anxiety, it one has feelings at times, physical feeling star, very nice, emotional feelings that are unpleasant, thinking, thinking things that are unpleasant. And that's just normal part of being human is also part of being human is to try and push it away. Try and block it. Which you could say is partly what we're doing with the is this, am I going to get paid for this. But not really, because that's you're still allowing yourself to feel it, and then allowing it to go because it's unnecessary. Because it's pointless, because you don't need it not wanting. But with a mindfulness, there's that sense of allowing yourself to feel whatever is happening, whatever feeling is there. And not pushing away, not holding on to it just allowing it to flow. So mindfulness is something that's really something that you could look into, you might be an expert on mindfulness. So you know, of course, I don't know what everybody that's listening to this does or has done. These are just some things that I've come across that I've used myself. Some things I've not used myself. This next thing is something that I haven't used, but I've come across that might be useful. And it's cuddling. So cuddle as in human contact. Positive physical contact can help release oxytocin and lower cortisol. It can help apparently help lower blood pressure and heart rate. And studies have been done on this. Apparently, chimpanzees also cuddle friends when they're stressed. And we know from children, when children are young children that go to the parents to cuddle, when perhaps they don't know somebody or they're, you know, anxious or whatever. As adults it's, it's a little bit different. Not every adult has a person to cuddle. I don't have a person to cuddle by do have Andre the ferret, my little boy and a cuddle him does feel nice. And see Yeah. That's one of those things that you might have access to it. Or you might not know that might sound like a weird statement, but he can't just walk up to a complete stranger and cuddle them generally. So but if you do have a person
that you you know, that you're able to have as a cuddle buddy, your partner or loved one supposed to be really good for you. And just excuse the if there's any background sounds because if someone neighbors like to go into the garden and just clap their hands loudly and who knows what's going on why they do that. Maybe it helps reduce their stress.
And so see what the next thing is? See, I don't normally have pieces of paper like this.
This is something that you could do changes the way you feel and it's probably something that I would include in it. A hypnosis session. Well, I'd go more in depth to get you to, you know, do this, but this is the opposite to what I would say. Probably most people do on the opposite. And especially in a situation, that's stressful, panicky anxiety and stuff, this is something you could do that may be useful to change your state, your physical and mental state is just remember, the last time you experienced, feeling great. Last time you experienced fit in wonderful, that really, really good. It can be as personal as you want it to be, because this is your memory, it's not something you have to tell anybody else. So it could be could use could have been in the gym, it could have been get an exam result, it could have been the last time you with your partner, or the first time he was with your partner or you know, it could be it could be anything, that's just remember the last time you experienced feeling wonderful, or may, if it's not the last time, remember, a time or a succession of different times, where you felt really, really wonderful. Because when you feel wonderful, your body automatically feels relaxed and calm. So that's something you can do. And I recommend doing that anyway, regardless, don't wait for anything, just do that. As often as possible, start remembering the good things, not in a not in a kind of regretful way at all. I haven't got that anymore. Not in a feeling sorry for ourselves way. But in a nice way, in a in a way that makes you feel really good. Where you kind of re experience some of those pleasant feelings.
Another thing you can do increasing confidence in yourself, will decrease stress and anxiety, increase confidence in yourself decreases stress and anxiety. You may say Oh, am I supposed to do that? There are millions of ways of doing that.
But one that I would focus on now. And that is focus on what you're good at. If you're anything like me and anyone else, that you probably know, we perhaps spend way too much time focusing on what we're not particularly good at, rather than on what we are good at. And this doesn't have to be something major. You know, it doesn't it doesn't have to be you want a gold medal in the Winter Olympics? Who doesn't? If you did then, right. But most people haven't. Doesn't have to be that you're the best ever at something. Focus on something you're good at. And everybody, every single person is good at something. I want to say good. I'm talking about it just good. In naturally, we've worked really hard whichever way it goes or both. Something you're good at doing. Another word good is what does it really mean? You know, it's a bit very subjective.
What are you good at? Maybe you can dance. Maybe it could be something you're good at keeping a clean house.
Maybe you're good at speaking you're good at communication. You're good at finding stuff on the internet. You know you might be able to be a wizard Google, you know how to find things, you might be really good on a smartphone, you may be a good reader, you might be a good runner, you may be a good listener, whatever it is, spend time focusing on what you're good at. So I'll leave you with that one I'm not going to leave of stock obviously do but that's, I won't say any more about that.
Ice. This next one is something that I mentioned the other day, this spend time with your pet. And there's a few reasons for this. It can give you purpose. If you're in a situation, and the illness, you got an illness, that's maybe preventing you from working for a while, maybe you're you might be living on your own, whatever the situation is, if you've got a pet, it doesn't have to be a dog or a cat, or an elephant, it could be you know, it could be a even fish need your attention, they need to the bowl, you know, the thing needs to be cleaned out, you need to feed them. Of course, you can't cuddle them, but it still can give you purpose. So whatever kind of pet you have, it keeps you active. So in some ways, probably more. So if you've got dog, if you take an animal for a walk, it gets you out, gets you walk in, but doesn't have to be a dog, I've got a ferret and I take him out for a walk provides companionship. Also, I've got a neighbor that takes a cat's out for a walk on it leads as well provides companionship. net is a big one. For me. Andre is my only companion really, as far as where I live, and is a big part of my life. So that's the spend time of your pets, bit. Studies and more. These are some practical things like therapeutic things, essential oils. I know little bit about essential oils, because I studied them at college quite a few years back. And I did it was a holistic course. And I did it specifically because of the anxiety that I'd gone through, I wanted to find as many different ways that I could use to help myself to reduce the anxiety and to increase relaxation, and to still be able to work and function. And you know, do everything I wanted to do. So essentially, Burnham in oil burners, which is what I've done in the past, of course, you need to be safety conscious with these things. But it gives you the instructions on them. You can get all burners in quite a few different places. And it gives a nice aroma around your home. And D with our senses, this is my memory, right? Correct. Your eyes you is everything. Most of them go through like a process. You don't get instant, like with you eyes. Everything's upside down, isn't it, and then it corrects itself in the brain and everything. That's as technical as I can get with that. With your smell, it's instant. The olfactory senses I think that's what is called as instant is it's direct. So when you smell something that's why sometimes smelling things can bring back a memory because it's so quick. It's an instant. So smelling something can bring a very instant feeling of well being. My advice and this is just based on me because if you get a book on essential oils, it will give you a list of ones for specific things. And when I studied at college, I did a Roma therapy. And there's lots of different thing, different mixtures for different conditions. It's my advice is perhaps get a book or go online, there's lots of different information. But ultimately find one that you like.
Find one that you like. I like Yang Yang, I think he's called Yang Lang. One that I really liked that I didn't know. Because you know, the three wise men in the Bible Jesus gets Born Free wise men come and they give Was it something and frankincense. I didn't know what Frankincense was a fully was some kind of the gold kind of, you know, expensive stuff to realize it was an oil on essential oil. It smells beautiful. It's absolutely fine to me. It's a beautiful smell. It's not necessarily for you. So you need to find one that you like, and knows how you feel when you smell it. I used to do this I used to put, I used to have a hankie with me at work, bearing in mind that people don't really carry hankies around anymore, but I had a hankie I kept in my pocket. And I had some oil on it, some essential oils in it. And I would sniff it every now and then just to help calm me down. So that's something that you might think about doing, of course, is different ways of doing it doesn't have to be a hanky, it could be
a scarf, or you notice there's lots of creative ways. This is therapist you could say. And I've been to
all of these, at times, aroma therapist reflexologist have a message, full body massage or back massage. A foot massage is amazing. very relaxing, I find. Not everybody likes to have their feet touch. So again, is specific to use what you feel comfortable doing. There's no point sitting there, having a stranger touching your feet, and you're all crunched up feeling uncomfortable thinking well, it should be good for my stress. It's not going to be good for your stress, if you're uncomfortable. It's the opposite to what you need to find something that feels right for you. an acupuncturist I've been to acupuncture, very much recommend that hypnotist hypnosis, well, I do that so can't really comment of it and say, it's this wide. It's why I do so. counseling. Again, I'm a I'm a fully qualified counselor, I've got degree in counseling. And I go through these in the in essence, aroma therapist. When I did the course, my friend did used to do around therapy with me as basically massage but with our own therapy oils, and very relaxing. I wasn't crazy about leaving with all those smells on me if I was honest, because I think could have felt better if it had been in my home. And aka just you know, didn't have a bath in the morning and gone to work. I remember walking in and getting a bus and I felt a little bit self conscious. Because I had all these they were lovely smells but I probably felt like I was thinking the bus out. But the idea is the aromas is not just for you to smell but it seeps into your skin and it's healing like natural healing. Because all the oils are from nature. I studied reflexology twice. And the for those of you that don't know about it, it's basically this parts of your foot, the bottom of your foot, the sides and the tops the are correlated according to reflexology correlated to the different parts your body is kind of based on the meridian system the same as acupuncture is as well. So is this kind of works on releasing the energy crumbling crystals that may have caused blockages in the energy between different parts of your body and doesn't always feel pleasant. So with a foot massage, if you like having your feet touched, or if you you're okay with it is you know with oil is just amazing, is beautiful. For me, I found it lovely. reflexology is relaxing, is nice, but it can be a little bit painful, slightly painful, if there's a blockage. So sometimes the person reflexologist may put a bit of pressure, or they will put pressure, but it depends on the person you're doing this doing. But the idea is it releases um, unblocks the energy lines, which then causes allows your body to heal. And it's very relaxing as well, it you know, massage. Yeah, it's again, it's not everybody's wants to be touched. And, but if you go to a qualified mess, or if you've got a partner that knows what they're doing, you know, it could be really, really useful. And it's very relaxing.
It's and it does this, I think it's like twofold in the sense of is physically relaxing, because you're massaging the muscle groups. It's also you got the human contact, which is you getting something that you wouldn't get from a vibrating chair, you know, those massaging chairs might message you back. But compared to having a human being touch in your back, and massaging, there's that healing aspect of touch, which I remember reading years ago, scientific journal, he said that if a baby's not touched, chances are the baby will die has to have human contact. Just having just feed in it, but not ever touching the baby. At the very least it will be damaged, like emotionally damaged. So we need to be touched. Really, even as adults. So it might be worth having reflexology, having a massage going to aroma therapist. Because apart from anything else you have in human, physical human contact, even if it is just on your feet, it's human physical contact, which is healing acupuncturist or acupuncture. I had that a few times over the years. And I don't like needles, I'll be honest with you. But you can feel the energy when they go in this connection is a there's a real energy going on through the body. And if you ever Dahlia, have acupuncture, you can feel it. You can feel the connection between a needle it's in your foot and needle is in your shoulder for example. I don't know if that's the right but there's you feel the needles connect to each other. And they're not they're not electric. You know? They're just needles. You can feel Feel the connection. So there is definitely energy going through us, which is scientific fact anyway. counseling. In some ways that could be the thing that is most useful. Because if you don't need counseling before going through a period of extreme anxiety and panic, he possibly could do it afterwards, as well as Julian, because it is traumatic, to suddenly feel like you're losing control of your life, losing control of your mind, maybe of your body, to be able to talk to someone about it without them without feeling judged. Without them, perhaps giving you advice. Just to shut you up, you know what, if you tried this, you could say that's what I'm doing. But this is a different situation, and I am actually a therapist, so but the counseling is really, really useful. I found. And I don't think I've ever met a person ever, that couldn't benefit from counseling. Even the happiest people could possibly benefit from talking to someone else about what's on their mind. And it helps sometimes to get a different perspective on yourself. Because when you say stuff else out loud, and perhaps you're not interrupted by somebody that wants to talk about something different. It might it's almost like, for me, you know, like a whiteboard on the on a board on a board, you've got a marker pen, and writing down something, and then realizing, Oh,
so that's why I think about just as you've seen it for the first time, even though it was inside your mind. And it can almost certainly help you to reduce anxiety and stress and to reduce depression. Because having panic attacks and anxiety can lead to depression. Because it's so horrible. So yeah, that's, that's all I got a sign that for now. But, uh, definitely recommend all of those. And I've done all of those. I've been a client and also trained in all of those except acupuncture. Which is weird. So amazing. I've done quite a few things over the years. But the only ones that I've really focused on has been the counseling and the hypnosis. The next thing is listen to music. I spoke about this in a session the other day. So I won't go into that. But basically, find something that you enjoy listening to something that you enjoy, that relaxes you. And listen to that. This is as simple as that. It's a soul study and it is a case of listen to something that you enjoy listening to. Doesn't have to be classical music. Doesn't have to be music. It could be the sounds of the rain forest, or birds singing or drums. It could be listening to a hypnosis recording. It could be listening to a motivational speech, the YouTubes full of them, you know, it's unlimited stuff out there. That might be exactly what you need. Might be listening, having snicker on the telly and closing your eyes and listening to that. It's very relaxing can be if that's your thing. The next thing is call the Samaritans when you're in need of someone to talk to. So I'm in England the Samaritans are lucky There's a phone number you call, and you can speak to somebody, and they don't judge, you then tell you what to do. And you can, you know, you probably got the equivalent wherever you are in the world I imagined. I don't know what they are, but in in England is called the Samaritans. They've been around for a long time. But but but but, and I used to think this is I think it was just for people that were suicidal. I always thought that, and then I went to join them. And I didn't end up joining them. But I went to one of the evenings where they kind of talked about what they were doing and what they're about. They're not they're just people who are suicidal, that they're for anybody who needs to talk about anything. No, they're not there to talk about Cake. Cake recipes, and obviously not just but you know, what, you need to talk to somebody call helpline number like that a lot of Samaritans somewhere that you can phone and talk to somebody about how you feel in. And for people in England, remember, it's not just for people who are suicidal? Because they've got that reputation, because in suicide hotspots, there might be a phone or, or, you know, a number for the Samaritans, and is kind of very much connected to that. But it's, it's for everybody. Anybody who needs to talk. So that's really important. And sometimes talking for 10 minutes, 20 minutes, half an hour can be the difference and make the difference. Whatever that difference is needed. These are some little practical things which I don't always take notice of myself if I'm honest. Reduce caffeine.
Coffee, tea, energy drinks. Those three energy drinks are probably the nowadays well known as the the most dangerous because of the high caffeine content, apparently. The least out there will be tea, I would say. Personally, I found coffee. I Can I have one cup of coffee a day in the morning, with my breakfast, only cup of coffee, I have a pile from occasionally when my friend comes around. And I might have a cup during the day. Want to do that? It doesn't feel right. Kind of or doesn't. If I if I have too many cups of coffee. I actually feel like I'm going into panic mode. So one a day. Any drinks, I don't touch tea. I just don't drink tea. I used to but do drink Coke, Coca Cola. So as I said, I'm not preaching here. I'm just saying that's what the experts say. This about listening to your own body as well. I know that I can't drink too much coffee. I can drink Coke. As much as one it doesn't affect me in the same way. Although I need to cut down I would think write down how you're feeling. So in the moment, I've done this myself a few times. It was one time in 1997 where I really really lost it. But anger wise and I felt like I was going crazy. Really. I felt like I was losing my mind. So it was it wasn't a panic attack. It wasn't anxiety, or probably a bit of anxiety but I think this is useful for a lot of situ Write down how you're feeling. Don't hold back, no one will ever read it. Remember, you can always rip up the paper afterwards, you can destroy it, rip into tiny little bits and put in the bin. So you can write down anything about anyone is this the old thing, write a letter that you're never going to send. And I really do recommend you never send an angry letter. Because once it's sent, he can't unsend it. And so that's one of those problems with the internet now used to be a problem for emails. But now it's even more instant, isn't it with, you know, Facebook and your text messages nice. Like once you send the message, he can't retrieve it. So write down how you're feeling. And this is why I did on that occasion. And I was, I didn't hold back at all. And I did feel the rage reduce, and the confusion, and it was anxiety connected with that as well. And I did feel out of control. But it helped, really, and I wrote three or four letters. And I was writing really super quick. And then I could feel the handwriting slowing down as I became more relaxed. And then I destroyed the less. And I didn't feel guilty all about what I wrote compared to how I felt if I sent the letters or said it to the person, because it can't be unsaid. But writing it down, getting rid of it helped. But again, that's personalized, up to up to each person. Last week, quite a long recording, isn't it, but I'll keep going.
So this is basically focus on what you do have rather than what you used to have. Focus on what you do have rather than what you used to have.
And this is a suppose increase in your positivity instead of negativity. I won't say any more than that is, this isn't something to necessarily do while you're in the midst of panic, or anxiety or stress is something that can be practiced daily when you feel in Okay, which can actually improve your state of mind and reduce anxiety and stress and increase.
But I suppose that sense of gratitude and well being, you know, some nearing the end, here's a practical thing. So art, this kindness isn't mine. This is something that I've read, chewing gum.
Chewing gum causes brainwaves. Similar to those connected to relaxation. So I remember again a long time ago, having read a lot of books on anxiety and seen all that stuff. The more saliva you've got in your mouth, the more relaxed you are.
So sounds like a strange thing to say. So I went through a period where I was constantly making sure that I had a wet mouth inside and it might sound like a strange weird thing to talk about that
The more saliva you'd go in your mouth, I'm not talking about walking around have a mouthful of spit, because that'd be weird when you go to talk, you don't spit dribbling out,
but it's relaxing, got chemicals in it. And chewing gum. Furthermore, were chewing gum increases saliva, which would then increase your sense of well being. Some come near the end of the session now, which might relax you. Here's this one is not something I do a lot of myself. So again, I'm not
I'm not preaching this, but if visit family and friends apparently, visiting family and friends gives us a sense of belonging and self worth. So gives you gives you the opposite sort of fight or flight impulse. And it's called the tend and befriend, tend and befriend the opposite to the fight or flight. So visiting family and friends, I suppose having a hug helps you have a sense of belonging, self worth. And for those that are living on their own or kind of solitary, perhaps for some people that can feel like they are on their own, literally in the world. And that might not be useful in times of stress or anxiety.
So if you do have family and friends, if you can't visit them, or don't want to unable to for whatever reason is Facebook, these phones, because phone them perhaps, again, that's
a personal personal choice. I quite like that I do actually, the opposite the fight or flight feelings, tend and befriend. So that's family and friends. And that is everything for this recording. I know it's been a practical kind of thing. You know, just me telling you some ideas that I've come across a little bit. It's, you know,
information about my experience using some of those things. And I've repeated over and over again, it's personal for each person. It's totally up about finding what is useful for you.
But I would say Also, before I go, try not to dismiss anything until perhaps you tried to or given us some thought. So I'm going to leave your net and I wish you all happiness. Remember to be kind to yourself. Bye
