Stress builds throughout the day, and by late afternoon I can feel the pressure buzzing around my brain as my to-do list bumps into the reality of my time frame. This mental noise can certainly interfere with my ability to concentrate and make my last hour of work productive. I have found this acupressure move helps to quiet my mind.
I press the pads of my thumbs on the spot right between my eyebrows, just above the bridge of my nose. I hold the position, pressing gently, for 30 seconds to a minute while breathing smoothly. This simple move slows down my overly busy brain so I can set my attention on my work at hand. Try it right now and see if it helps you, too.
