While it’s easy enough for people to say “calm down” or “take time to relax,” it’s not always possible.

Now a TikTok doctor has revealed how to banish stress in minutes.

dr Karan Rajan explains that you can reduce feelings of stress and anxiety by using your eyes.

He said it’s important to remember that your eyes are not connected to your brain and that they are, in fact, the brain.

“During embryonic development, the eyes are actually part of the forebrain and emerge from the skull in the first trimester.”

dr Rajan said when you’re sitting at home scrolling through your phone or looking at a screen at work, you have focal vision.

“Your field of vision narrows and you focus on something, and that activates the sympathetic nervous system or stress response,” he said.

He explained that you can use this visual field to control your stress responses.

He said switching our focal vision to panoramic vision and activating our peripheral vision, such as by looking at the sky, can reduce stress.

He explained the logic behind this, saying that panoramic and peripheral vision activates the parasympathetic nervous system – the resting and digestive response – which reduces arousal.

dr Karan ended the video by suggesting taking a few minutes each day to “focus on the unfocused” to find relaxation.

in the another videohe revealed how to relieve feelings of stress when you might not be able to get yourself out of a situation, e.g. B. when you are at work or chatting.

He said that if you keep your mind focused on the exhale, you can still function in a stressful situation.

“Consciously focusing on long, slow exhalations can calm sympathetic nervous system activity.

“Try in your mind that the exhalation is twice as long as the inhalation.”

Physical stress symptoms can be headachemuscle tension, stomach problems, chest pain and sexual problemS
