The infinity symbol and your mind: EMDR therapy

on November 19, 2013

Hello, beauties –

I found this on Tumblr and had to share. To keep your mind from panicking, try this:

If you follow the paintbrush with your eyes without moving your head, it forces you to use Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR); a therapeutic technique to calm anxiety.  The use of your own rapid, rhythmic eye movements can even dampen the power of emotional memories of traumatic events, and is often used to treat Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Watching fish swim will cause the same effect.

Hope this week is treating each of you well, and have a lovely day!
