    Chopping wood can help if one is set up for that, plus it's good cardio. Another technique I've used is the sledgehammer method.



    Or just rocks. Caution: wear eye protection such as goggles.

    hope things are better for you 2, stress stinks. the breathing thing is real, glad you have had improvement already.

    i read a book by a japanese guy who lived about 400 years ago, or at least the deciphering so it was probably close.

    he said - you do not take 5 real breaths a day but if you learned to breath from your diaphragm and start taking more than the 5 it would change your life.

    so i did the exercise until it was like playing smoke on the water and everything except my spelling and syntax got better. :)

    doing some basic googling and u-toobing will bombard you with breathing patterns and techniques for different purposes.

    That sounds pretty helpful, but I'm afraid to try it because if I lower my heart rate much more I'll be in trouble. I'm usually around 40, not many beats left to lose!

    If I think of any, I’ll let you know. Usually, it’s the kind of thing that I’ll remember if I use it, but otherwise it’s out of my head pretty quick. But I tried this one a couple of times and it feels like a quick form of meditation. But, yeah, I think some sort of meditation practice should do her some good…

    Best to both of you,

    -Ray

    Take a relaxing virtual stroll through the very beautiful and peaceful Portland Japanese Garden.

    Fixed it for ya

    Just kidding (well, kinda).

    I’ve struggled with anxiety for a while. Not fun. Hopefully I don’t end up having long term health effects from it.

    How can you shred like that at 40 bpm?

    Been there many times during my Los Angeles residency. What a fantastic place to escape the madness!

    Agreed..one of my favorite spots as well. If I'm not mistaken they held Tom Petty's Memorial Service there.

    I was taught a similar process back in the 70s for stress reduction, works well, but as time goes on we start to forget to do it… I found leaving a pop-up reminder on my DIGITAL phone to be a great help. It comes up only twice a month, but that's enough. Even with this, I ended up with a widow maker @97% blockage. Only one, All of the others were fine but the ladd had an anurism on it that must have caused the block and made OHS necessary, so I joined the zipper club.

    Hope she is well and stays that way.

    Fasting, Juicing, Valerian, Ashwagandha, EFT Tapping and CBD therapy.

    Juicing and Fasting will help clear up the blockage.

    When you fast your body goes into a scavenging mode. Eats up all the ugly stuff first, excess cholesterol, cysts, tumors.

    https://www.health.harvard.edu/blog/intermittent-fasting-surprising-update-2018062914156

    Reduce or eliminate caffeine.

    Avoid anything with "natural flavor" that is the new code word for MSG which is a neuro stimulant.

    Just a few to look into for general wellness.

    A health crisis is a great motivational tool to change old ways, my kidney stones sure changed mine.

    https://www.jyi.org/2018-june/2018/6/1/the-endocannabinoid-system-our-universal-regulator

    The movie Sick Fat and Nearly Dead is a good starting place for juicing.

    Get her well, get involved and do it together as a team. Good health to you and yours.

    Thanks for the tip.
    Although I don't think that I’m particularly stressed,
    It seems as though it might be a good exercise to practice anyway.

    I hope your lady’s health continues to improve.
