Did you know the gentle pressure of a weighted eye pillow on the area around your eyeballs can help balance the nervous system and lower blood pressure?
The vagus nerve also known as the 10th cranial nerve is the longest and most complex nerve in the body. As the Vagus nerve journeys across the face and upper chest it can be impacted by subtle and gentle acupressure, such as a simple weighted eye pillow placed over the eyes.
If you're feeling anxious or uptight and can't ' let go' try to take a short break. Maybe it would help to add a 15 minute ' time out' into your daily calendar. Try setting a reminder, scheduling is the best way to make a commitment stick.
Find a quiet space, place a weighted eye pillow on your closed eyes and take a few slow, deep breaths. Disconnect from your surroundings and connect with your breath as it flows in, out and around you. Feel the gentle weight on your eyes, and breathe in the calming benefits of lavender.
It's a good habit to get into. Wellness is a journey. Taking a few steps each day to carve out a bit of space, it will make a big difference to your overall wellbeing and happiness.Namaste
