My Diary

Handy device to reduce anxiety

Handy device to reduce anxiety

One of the biggest problems I have to deal with in my private practice is anxiety. There are many types of anxiety – health anxiety, social anxiety, phobias, Obsessive-Compulsive disorder and generalised anxiety disorder (GAD).

Generalised anxiety disorder and social anxiety tend to be the most common and anxiety levels are rising. Life as we know it is inherently stressful and anxiety seems inescapable. Cognitive behavioural therapy works really well for anxiety as it helps individuals to challenge their thougths and not always believe their negative thinking. There are many strategies that CBT offers to help but we can always use extra help.

I have come across a brilliant device and it works very well. I can’t believe how effective it is! I have tried it and want as many people to know about it as possible. The device helps when you feel overwhelmed and need something to help you calm down.

It works by regulating your breathing and releases a calming scent. The clever trick to this is that you need to start off using it wheh you feel calm. This creates a strong association in the brain between feeling calm and this device. So when it comes to using it in a crisis, your brain will revert to it’s strong association with feeling calm. I have tried this product and it has worked for me. It’s incredibly effective. I was sceptical at first but I am really sold on this.

The device has an instantly calming effect and is portable so you can use it anywhere, at anytime. Studies showed that using myReLeaf 3 times a day, for 3 minutes each time, significantly reduces anxiety and worry measurements. It also helps to increase psychological well-being. In addition, the three methods of exhalation prolongation, relaxing scents and multi-sensory stimulation are well established anxiety relief methods.

The combination of focusing on your breathing, the vibration of the device and the lights that appear as you exhale, as well as the association between feeling calm and this device all contribute to a sense of calm. The practise of breathing into the device is based upon the principles of “classical conditioning” helping to create a mental association between an action and a feeling.

If you suffer from anxiety, you can’t be with your therapist 24/7 and this device would be a brilliant companion to help you feel empowered and self sufficient between sessions.
