Which acupressure point helps with anxiety?
Anxiety can feel so overwhelming, I know this from personal experience. I can get really frustrated when I unsuccessfully try to calm my mind mentally. That’s when I use Heart 7, an acupuncture point that works really well for anxiety.
Key points of this video:
There are often ingredients in our diet that can contribute to the feelings of anxiety.
The consumption of caffeine, Energy Drinks and Mountain Dew can make anxiety worse.
Sugar can also cause anxiety. Keep in mind that sugar is lurking in many processed foods. And even processed foods may contain some ingredients that can make anxiety worse.
Minerals have a mild sedative effect. They can be found in whole foods, such as vegetables and fruits.
Mindfulness helps with anxiety, but what if you’re so anxious that even this is difficult to do. Just focus on your breath (try to time 4 or 6 breaths per minutes and listen to your favorite playlist. Immerse yourself in one of your favorite songs.
Disconnect from time to time from your electronic devices. There are apps that will do that for you. And, there are also apps that help you meditate.
The acupuncture point Heart 7 can be stimulated to help with anxiety.
Heart 7 is located in your wrist area, just below the round bone (also called pisiform bone; similar to a pea).
Press and massage this point with your finger, fingernail or pen (avoid the ink!) for 20 seconds several times a day.
