One of the keys to removing anxiety is to be flexible in our thinking.

1. Do we always salivate when Pavlov rings his bell?

Classical conditioning.

2. Do we always feel we have to dress smartly to impress others?

3. Do we have fairly fixed views about religion, medicine and politics?

Maybe we need to break free of our conditioning and act and think differently.

For anxiety wrap the fingers of one hand around the opposite index finger. Just breathe and hold for several minutes, until you feel a deep, even pulsation.

(Thumb is worry/insomnia, middle finger is anger/blood pressure issues, ring finger is grief/breathing, little finger is pretense/heart.)

This is from the Japanese healer Jiro Murai, who founded the Physio-Philosophy of Jin Shin Jyutsu.
