Often times, when we think of stress and/or inflamed emotions, we think, “I need a hot bath”. What I am about to suggest to you is wildly different, and wildly effective.This is something that is going to rock your world, and chill you out, quite literally.
Why does this work?
Our mind body connection is STRONG, and this means that when our thoughts are spinning and heating up- our livers follow. The excessive liver energy output that is required to process toxins and emotions is palpable, and packing it with a little ice is going to do for the liver, exactly what we want to do for the mind. Sloooooow it down.
Any stress signal is a way of alerting you to say the five magic words: I want to feel good. This is your intention to be tranquil and stress free—and it’s a way of connecting to spirit.-Dr. Wayne Dyer
The most important thing to do, is to journal out how you feel just before icing, and just after. Make a point to do this every day, or every time you get angry or feel overwhelmed/angry thought. Rate your emotional upset using a scale you can reliably refer back to.
1- no discernable stress
2- somewhat stressed
3- stressed but handling it with tools
4- stressed and complaining verbally
5- stressed and exploding
