Have you ever had a day where you just felt out-of-sorts? No matter what you did you just couldn’t seem to right yourself?
These kinds of days usually occur after we’ve experienceed a number of stressful events in our life. During times like this, we experience more negative thought and feelings.
There’s a term for these states of mind. It called psychological reversal.
When we find ourselves thinking and feeling negative; believing that things will never improve, it’s because we’re reversed psychologically.
Look at it this way. Life is constantly sending negative, stressful events into your life. It could be work problems, family issues, or maybe, it’s as simple as a common cold—that just won’t go away.
These kinds of events, literally, push you downward emotionally. They challenge your ability to cope and remain positive. They reverse you psychologically.
Some experts believe that psychological reversal is the reason why some people stay sick longer when ill or do not heal as fast as others after surgery.
This idea correlates with body-mind research that indicates that people who pray, have faith, or maintain a positive attitude responded better totreatment.
It seems that our body requires a positive state of mind to perform its healing functions!
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could handle everything life throws at you and still maintain a positive mental attitude? You can, but you have to invest in yourself…..
At my clinic in Gretna, Louisiana, I teach stress management techniques that resolve negative thoughts and feeling almost instantaneously. These techniques actually lower your blood pressures, improve concentration, provide a sense of calm, and produce a positive mental attitude.
Two very powerful techniques that I teach are the Sedona Method and (EFT) Emotional Freedom Techniques.
When I combine these techniques with cognitive behavioral therapy, the results are often amazing! (For further information on the Sedona Method and EFT, go to the Resource Link)
What really excites me about these techniques is that once you learned them, there yours for the rest of your life!
In addition, I also teach Tai chi and Qigong . . . . . Tai chi and Qigong are ancient Chinese systems of exercise and meditation that promote health, well being, and long life.
Both Tai chi and Qigong are based on the premise that the human body is an energy system and that sickness results when our body’s energy becomes blocked or stagnant.
Tai chi and Qigong teach you to unblock stagnant energy in your body by using your mind, body, and spirit together.
Tai chi and Qigong are gentle exercises that are done in a flowing or rhythmic pace and produce a calming, tranquil state of mind. Through the training of mind, breath, and posture, Tai chi and Qigong enable you to continually strengthen your health throughout your life time.
Anyone can benefit from Tai chi and Qigong, regardless of age or ability. The exercises are easy to learn and can be performed at home or in an office setting. Even seniors with limited mobility can benefit, as many of the exercises can be performed while sitting down.
Experimental evidence demonstrates that Tai chi and Qigong may be an effective adjunct in the treatment of chronic pain, asthma, arthritis, diabetes, headaches, gastro-intestinal disorders, chronic fatigue, as well as, cancer and heart disease.
The incredible powers of Tai chi and Qigong are reflected in their popularity with over 200 million practitioners worldwide. Both offer amazing benefits to your health and well-being. With regular exercise you can expect to:
Lower blood pressure and improve circulation
Boost immunity and prevent disease
Develop stamina, flexibility, and balance
Improve sexual, athletic, and intellectual performance
Stabilize mood swings and sharpen thinking
Reduce tension and manage stress
Develop a clear and tranquil mind
It really depends on you and your interest. The study of Tai chi and Qigong can actually go on for a life time as there are numerous styles. Each style has a series of distinct choreographed movements called forms. Short forms may last only a few minutes while longer forms may last as long as an hour.
For health purposes it is only necessary to learn one or two forms well and to practice them on a daily basis.
I recommend that beginning students learn the Yang style Tai chi 24 short forms, along with a Qigong form, such as the “Eight Pieces of Silk Brocade. Both of these can be practiced in about twenty to thirty minutes.
Invest in yourself! Take the time to learn these Techniques and you have them for life! Solve your stress problems –forever!There's nothing more effective in resolving stress then East Meets West! Stress Management Techniques!
