It happens at work, while waiting or taking time-out.
What to do with yourself?
Stuck, so you can’t leave, or listen or read, or check your phone.
When there is that defining feeling of emptiness and you know for sure
you ARE BORED.
Try this: Your body has a hum to it. The obvious hum is inside your mouth and a song is right there with it. Some people can whistle, but maybe that would draw too much attention. It depends on the situation.
Another body hum is the one your pulse. FOR FUN: check it; not to judge it, just to feel it.
There is also tension in your hands. Use one hand to massage the other breathing with the release of the tension. If you can, do the same for your feet but if you cannot easily take off your shoes and socks, then massage your hip sockets, your thighs, knees and shins.
Your legs will thank you.
You can also use your hand in a cup shape to massage the back of your neck, moving up to the base of your skull, where your hand would then open placing your thumb facing down on one side of your spine and your fingers woven together cradling your skill. Thumbs are where the top of your spine connects to your skull. Breathe.
The following charts are reflexology guides showing the nerve endings for each part of your body. These nerve endings end in your hands your feet and your ears.
Just be sure to breathe with the pain (tension), evenly in and out. Your breath will dissipate the stress. You do not need to memorize anything. These charts are for reference. You can come back to look at them anytime or copy and download them.
One last tip: drink water 8 glasses daily even though it requires more trips to the bathroom. Most of our problems are due to dehydration. Coffee, sodas, and alcohol dehydrates you. I have a tip that works for many people. Stand at the source of your drinking water and fill up an 8oz glass. Drink it down while you are standing there. Before moving away, fill up the same glass a second time and take it with you to sip more slowly. This way you only need to do this 4 times a day. And 4 times a day is easy – breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack or bedtime.
