One simple yet effective method to alleviate anxiety

Board Membe: Youxin Li ·
Bilateral stimulation is a technique that involves engaging both sides of the body or brain to help manage emotions. It can include activities like tapping, hand movements, or other actions that stimulate both the left and right sides. This method is often used in therapies like EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) to reduce anxiety or process difficult memories. The idea is that by involving both sides, it may enhance the brain's ability to cope with emotions and stress.

Thanks for sharing this method! I used to squeeze the stress ball with only one hand but didn't successfully de-stress. Next time, I should alternate hands when I squeeze! An extension question: Do you think the elasticity of the squeeze ball affects its effectiveness in alleviating anxiety?
