In this video, I describe a quick, easy, effective yet completely unobtrusive way of relaxing. It involves learning to warm your dominant hand, that is your right hand if you’re right-handed, largely by an effort of will. As your hand becomes warmer you will grow more relaxed. Try it and see for yourself.

The pictures below were taken with a heat sensitive camera to show how, as one focuses on warming the hand, blood flow increases along with feelings of relaxation. The first shows the hand of an anxious person, the second of one who has become deeply relaxed.
