Reduce Stress
Your face is the first place someone’s eyes rest when they meet you.  It is the mirror of your internal experiences--housing your smile, tears, and the words you use to communicate with others.

Your face is also a primary resting place for stress.  To keep your smile genuine and your brow unfurrowed, try this easy exercise. 

Rest all four of your fingertips on your cheekbones, feeling the beautiful structure of your face.  Press in--hard. S-L-O-W-L-Y drag your fingers toward your scalp, up over your ears, and come to rest at the spot in your upper neck where your spine meets your skull.Keep up the pressure, and bring your hands down the side of your neck, over your shoulders, and brush that stress off your pecs and into the universe.  You do not need to carry it around with you. 

Try this movement three times, inhaling deeply as you move your hands, exhaling completely as you brush off the tension.  Inhale peace.  Exhale stress.  And when you’re done, close your eyes, tilt your head up, and envision that light at the end of the tunnel.  It IS there, and you will reach it.

Thanks for this - I frequently get someone in my yoga class with a bad headache - I will remember to pass this along.
