Body Scan: Reset Your Focus and Connect

A few days ago, I sent out an email about Irene Lyon's Nervous System Tune-Up (closed) a fast, powerful, low-cost way of putting brain science principles into practice for yourself and your clients. And though I have been following Irene's work for 10 years, I realized that many of you are new to her, so I put one of her simple but powerful exercises below for you to try out.

The video is introduction to the 8-minute session that you can do (and share with your clients, transcript included) to stop rumination, reset your focus and connect to yourself and environment.

The Session: Body And World Orientation

Though Irene calls this session "Body And World Orientation," I, Ryan, call it "De-Hypnosis" and use it to help me break out of my internet trance and connect to my body and the external world so I that I can chill out, relax and move onto the next part of my day.

If you will do the process several times over the next 24 hours or so, I guarantee it will make a positive difference in your life and mood.
