Suffering from stress?
Stress affects most of us at some point in our lives, whether we're under pressure at work or we're feeling anxious about things at home, and it can have harmful consequences for our health and wellbeing.
It can affect us mentally, causing us to become forgetful and irritable, have low self-esteem, suffer from racing thoughts and constant worry, or struggle to concentrate.
But it can also affect us physically, as headaches, muscle tension, digestive problems and breathlessness are all corporeal symptoms that can manifest as a result of stress.
Everyone reacts differently to stress and for some it can be a constant battle. Fortunately, the Yantra Mat could be a key tool in your armour, helping you relax and boosting your energy levels with its tiny acupressure contact points.
What causes stress?
Stress is usually brought on by some form of mental pressure, either from a single event or a build up of smaller things. Some people are more prone to stress than others and may feel anxious more often.
Perhaps you are struggling financially, or you are worried about your job security. Maybe you are studying for an important qualification and your exams are looming. Stress can strike in any of these scenarios.
A relationship breakdown or the death of a loved one can also trigger stress, as can a major life change, such as moving home, becoming a parent or starting down a new career path.
Whatever the cause, it's better to tackle stress head-on before it affects your overall health and wellbeing. Taking time out to relax and making sure you get enough sleep are essential.
How can the Yantra Mat help?
The Yantra Mat can help you deal with stress by aiding relaxation and boosting blood flow. Its 8,820 calibrated spikes are specially designed to apply even pressure across all of your body's acupressure points.
When you lie on the Yantra Mat you'll experience a warming sensation as your blood circulation increases and your body releases feel-good endorphins and oxytocins, which help to reduce stress and allay feelings of fatigue.
Lie on your back to stimulate acupressure points along the spine, or on your stomach to loosen your diaphragm and respiratory muscles, helping you breathe deeply and more easily.
Using the Yantra Mat in this position can also be beneficial if you're suffering from stress-related digestive problems such as indigestion and constipation.
Remove the foam rubber pad and only take the cloth part. That way the Yantra Mat doesn't take up so much space in your suitcase and you can simply place the cloth directly on your bed mattress. Many people have a hard time sleeping when they're away from home. The Yantra Mat may help you get a better night's sleep, even when you're on the road.
Relieve stress and aid relaxation with the Yantra Mat
Use your Yantra Mat as a relaxation tool for just 20 minutes a day and you could see huge improvements in your general wellbeing, including your stress levels.
While a stylish carry bag makes the Yantra Mat highly portable, there's also a Yantra Kit containing an inflatable pillow, an acupressure belt and finger rings so you can enjoy your Yantra moment anywhere, anytime.
