How do you deal with fear and anxiety?
“I am anxious,,,”
even if you feel that
“are you OK!”
Are you able to control your feelings?
Certainly, methods such as affirmations imply to yourself by repeating positive words such as “It’s okay, it’s okay, it’s okay.”
I think people who can do that are amazing.
From my thoughts and experience, I find it very difficult to control emotions with words and feelings.
For example, even though I am very hungry
Even if you think about it, you can’t do it in reality.
even if it’s very hot
“It’s cool today.”
I can’t control the hot feeling.
It’s hard to control your mind like that.
So, should we just go about our daily lives with fear and anxiety?
how to overcome fear
1. Strengthen your heart
“Heart? No heart?”
What many people don’t know is that fear and anxiety often come from the heart.
Since ancient times, there is a saying that refers to the location of the heart rather than the head, such as “to reveal one’s heart.”
The chest is specifically the heart.
From the standpoint of the autonomic nervous system, fear and anxiety appear because the autonomic nervous system of the heart is weakened.
Almost everyone who complains of fear or anxiety has palpitations.
This is because the autonomic nervous system of the heart is weakened.
When the heart palpitates, the “fear of death” and “anxiety of death” become conscious.
This leads to fear and anxiety.
Then, how can the weakened autonomic nervous system of the heart be strengthened?
The autonomic nerves run through the spine.
autonomic nerve = spine
You can also say.
When the spine is distorted, the autonomic nerves inside are also affected and become ataxic.
Well, the reason why your spine is crooked is because your posture is bad.
Spend every day with good posture.
Place your palms on your waist.
Tighten the muscles on both sides of the spine just above the palm and arch the spine (I think this spine of yours is probably sticking out, but this spine is originally curved. there is).

Part 2: Improving the intestines
“After the heart, the intestines?”
“Even though it’s a matter of the heart?”
Almost everyone who comes to the hospital with depression has a very bloated stomach.
Your gut is tired.
And when the tension comes off, the state of depression will also improve.
from long ago
There is a word that expresses that the heart is in the stomach as well as the chest.
And as a result of modern research, we know that the intestines have a function to make serotonin, a happy hormone.
A heart that feels happy and a heart that feels fear and anxiety are polar opposites.
Improving the condition of the intestines leads to removing fear and anxiety.
As a way to improve intestinal health
don’t eat convenience store bento
don’t eat a lot of wheat products
worry about additives
don’t drink cold drinks
And so on.
Among these, I think that “surprise!”
People who regularly eat wheat have very bloated stomachs.
We Japanese still have a short history of wheat, and it seems that there are many people who do not like it.
I’m not saying that you should stop eating wheat altogether, but try avoiding “bread every morning” and “pasta every night” and eating every other day.
