I recently came across a unique proposition by a nutritionist (Jane Cole-Hamilton) from Ontario in Canada. In order to relieve stress, you need to know which brain hemisphere is stressed. Note the following:
If you feel depressed or emotional overwrought, your stress is in the right hemisphere -- the creative, emotional, holistic side.
The remedy? Switch to your matter-of-fact left hemisphere by doing maths, writing factual prose or organising. The emotional right brain will calm down.
If you feel time-stressed and overburdened, the left hemisphere is involved.
The remedy? Switch to your right brain by singing, playing music or playing sport.
Maybe it's worth a try next time...
