Now a second ago, I said only listen, when you can safely Close your eyes. However, I'm going to ask you decide to do something which revolves revolves involves you having your eyes open. So you may need to pause the recording for a minute. Not right now wait till I finish talking, I ask you to get a hold of some kind of ball that you can hold in your hand, like a you know, like a tennis ball. Or if you don't have a tennis ball, because I don't actually have a tennis ball. Because I don't play tennis, walked on his road to Sox together. Okay, so glasses off soccer, that's just the one doing. So if you press pause to get get hold of something like that, just something that you can hold in your hand and is comfortable, say comfortable, it doesn't have to necessarily feel blissful. Just you know, if it's in your hand, or something is too big for your hand or something that so small, you can actually see where it is just a nice size, couple of socks rolled together or a tennis ball or you know something similar. That's a press the pause button and then come back. When you're ready. Now we're going to assume that you've, you're ready. So what we're going to do, basically, this is an exercise, and it's very, very simple, has to be for me to do it. So I like simplicity. It's not my idea. Something I came across a few years ago. But the idea behind it is that when you're stressed, anxious, panicky, tense, whatever is going on. One part of your brain is more stimulated than the other part. That's the probably the most simplistic term I can give without going into the whole right hemisphere, left hemisphere. And therefore in order to really juice the stress, you need to have both sides stimulated.
That is a number of ways to do it. And number ways, this is just one simple way. And you can do at home. Another way would be to learn to play the piano or to play the piano if you know how to play the piano.
This a little bit different. Because, well, first we need to play learn how to play piano, which is probably not. That wouldn't reduce my stress having to learn to play an instrument you know, but playing a piano has a similar effect. But it's also a very destructive and focused thing. playing the piano is very focused. And this is another focused thing. Different just very different by the process is basically activating both sides of your brain, both hemispheres of your brain. the right and the left So instead of just one being perhaps overly stimulated, let's say the right side of your brain overstimulated with emotion, then you can even out and start activating the other side and the other side gets a little back to it. And then you activate the right side again. And then you activate the left side again, a bit by bit, the other side gets more activated by only takes the activation away from the other side. So it just disperses. Does that make sense? disperses the activation, and the stimulation between both sides. So that everything's more even. Everything's more relaxed. And how he should be really, in a sense of feeling calm, I say should be, there is no should be really, but it definitely evens it out. To be live, you think you sit in a seesaw. Do remember seesaw was I don't know if they even have them in playgrounds anymore. But seesaw is used to be you'd sit on one side, your friend would sit on the other side, and you jump up and you'd like push your legs up and down. And you'd see so up and down. It worked fine. If you were someone the same size as you, when you kid most kids generally kind of roughly the same. You're sewing at the gym in about the same way, size ish, some lot bigger, so I'm a bit smaller, but the you get an adult and you sort of five years old, an adult sits on it, or a 14 year old sits on it. They have complete control over the seesaw, you don't have a say in it, you might as well not even be there. Because you can't do anything, they decide when it goes down. They decide when it goes up. But when you lose someone the same weight issue, you push up and then a push up. But neither of you has control of the seesaw. It's a mutual exchange of energy. It's fun, you're playing with each other, it's fun, and you both got the same amount of leverage. So that's kind of what this is doing this little exercise, it takes away the power from one side. All that energy that's in one part of your brain, which is focusing on the stress and maybe causing that stress. And that panic and the anxiety, it starts to let's say, basically, you've got a big person there. And you've got a small person on the other side of the, of the seesaw. And the other side has no control. So the logic, you know, the logical part, which says, You know what, there's nothing to be stressed about. We don't need to be all, you know, hit up and sweaty and stressing and anxiety, we don't need this, we don't have to be because everything's gonna be okay. But because all the weights on the other side of the seesaw. Or you could say the other side of the scales if you look at it that way. So what we do is we evened out, sort of both sides of the seesaw had the same weight, both sides of your brain have the same amount of stimulation and activity,
which then evens out gently. And then is that stimulation, you can just have it balanced or can go up and down this, you know our minds change all the time standard stuff. But if you look at it from a scale perspective, scales are then balanced.
And in order to do this, if you look at the fact that the left side of your brain operates the right side of your body,
the right side of your brain opera Lights operates, operates always in charge of the left side of your body. Which means when you use when you move the right side of your body, it stimulates the left side of your brain, when you move the left side of your body, just like you, if you only get it right, if you move the right side of your body, it stimulates the left side of your brain, if you move the left side of your body, it stimulates the right side of your brain. Because those are the two, so if you would like a cross crossover, which means when you move your right hand, your left leg toes, your shoulders,
it stimulates the other side of the brain. So what we do, I mean, it's different ways you could do dancing.
Dancing can reduce stress. That's why salts are the thing people go running. Do, it has lots of different effects, health wise, but also, you're moving both sides of your body, you're stimulating both sides of your brain.
So same as with playing a piano, you use a left and right sides, you have both, you know both your hands.
And you know, for someone that maybe has a missing limb, use the other limb, you know, so obviously, someone's got a missing hand, you can't do the ball thing. But you could move your head, you can move through your feet. So tapping your feet, your right foot, then you lift the right for the new left for you can imagine, in fact, what you could do is the couldn't with this, what I'm going to do is, first of all, I'll show you how you can do it with your hands. And then I'll show you how you can do it with your feet. Some people don't have to use their hands, some people don't have to use their feet. You know, we've all all different kinds of people. So this gives you the option to do. So of whatever your situation is. Also, if you can't physically do it, for whatever reason, you can imagine it because your imagination is just as powerful, which is more powerful than physically doing it. There's nothing more powerful than your imagination is the most powerful thing, the most powerful tool that you have. Anyway, we're going to focus on the ball, which is going to be a sock. It could be a clean sock, I've got clean sock to clean socks. But doesn't matter any funny you can roll into a ball. Or if you've got a handy a tennis ball or something like that. And all you're gonna do is just hold in one hand. So I've got mine in my right hand. And I'm just, I'm gonna imagine there's a line going down the middle of my body, all the way down from the top, my head, between my eyes, all the way down middle of my chest, stomach, and pretty much get into my groin and then move down to the floor. So both legs, arms, or reverse side of the body, either side of that line. What all I'm going to do is imagine this, like maybe a little net, not going to just chuck the ball or the sock, in this case, over the little net, the imaginary net to the other hand and do it again. And I'm doing this standing up. But it might be easier to do it on a table because at least if it falls, you haven't got to pick it up off the floor. But it's all I'm doing unless you do it. I mentioned it's moving over the little net. But just focus move. Don't move your head, just move your eyes. So have you had you can look down obviously we don't have to do anything. But my suggestion is you've looked down sort of in the middle where the net would be You can see your hands. And you can see them in the peripheral. But also you can see they're there anyway, because they're not that far apart, you don't have to have them spread right out, you can have them as close as you want, but just enough apart to be either side of that line, and then just pass the ball or a sock to each hand. And I said, and just follow with your eyes, as it goes your side and I've just dropped on the floor. So that's might be a good way, a good reason to do it, whilst maybe sitting down and doing it over a table. That way you don't end doesn't fall in the floor. However, that's one part of the exercise you can do. The other part is you can do with your feet. And I'm gonna do my feet now, because it's on the floor. And besides me, bending over and picking it up. So I take my shoes off. And the same way, as before you got that line down your body, you move, have it with your right foot, you just kick it over to left foot.
And then Kiko from left foot to the right foot, across that line, so you're not trying to get over, like over the net, or anything, just
passing across the line to the other foot. And you could do this sitting down as well, doesn't have to be standing up. I mean, the point with what I do, I think is very important, actually, is to make things comfortable. Because then you kind of want gonna want to do it. And yeah, if something's really difficult, if I'm going to start saying right now, you need to get yourself a climbing frame and a parachute and you're going like, No, no, no thanks. You know, we just kind of make it simple. So it's just moving, kicking it from one foot to the other, or shunting, it, it doesn't really kick, it's just a move in it with your foot. Apart from anything else feels quite nice, the movement. And if you can do it without any shoes on
if you can, because then you've got you've got the feeling the floor, underneath your feet, and it does stimulate it the bottoms of your feet a little bit, and you get a knife is really weird, even though I'm on the first floor of a building. So nowhere near the earth,
I feel almost kind of connected to the ground, I know is the ground but it's not the ground is it, it's not you know, in the garden, but still feels like this feels more connected than when I've got shoes on. That might just be a personal thing. But then when you do an issue, you can move your toes and just just be gentle, wherever you do just be gentle. moving from one side to the other. Kicking that ball or that sock, femur left over that little invisible line to write for. And then again from your right foot over to your left foot
or
with your right hand, just passing it over to the left hand. And you know, even if the idea of like sort of throwing it to the other hand doesn't feel might not feel very comfortable. It might not fit with your a way of doing things that might not be you might think oh this is this is don't like it. You could just pass the ball and just drop it from your right hand down into your left hand. And then put your right hand back where it was. And then you could move your other left hand over to the right hand, and just drop it into your right hand and move your left hand where it was. And I'm just doing that actually, and the movement feels really nice. So in a way, that is a different way of doing it. But there's also more physical movement with your upper body. Because you do that your shoulders move in your hands or move in your arms or move in the muscles in your upper body and move in. And even your hips are moving. Which, in a sense, maybe even more, stimulate into the other part of the brain even quicker. So just give it a go give it a goes, nothing to lose. Worst case scenario, is it? Maybe it's a bit silly. Now might you laugh? Are you thinking what am I do? One Mattoon with this sock in my hand. And that's it. Probably not something you can do in public. Maybe you have a ball, tennis ball, maybe. But probably I don't know, taken us. If you're at work, and you put a plus sock out of your draw. It might come across a little bit weird, weird or funny. But you know what? The humor of it can release tension. Just the idea of having all your work colleagues there. And you pull out a dirty sock in a ball and you start passing it to your hands, one hand to the other. And the looks on their faces like a wall in earth. Why are they doing that in itself can actually give you a little boost of calmness and relaxation. Even just thinking about doing something like that. So I'll leave it with you. I hope that is useful. And I'll speak to you again tomorrow. So thank you for listening. Remember, remember to be kind to yourself because you deserve to be happy. Lots of love. Bye
