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.
