To destress, palming for five minutes daily is recommended. But I myself find this very tough to do.For one, where do u place your elbows without straining the shoulders? Then also that madness of doing too many things, u feel u cannot sit still with hands to your palms doing nothing! For hyperactive people being still is a BIG stress However, that is what this yoga bizness is about. Breaking patterns. So, yes, palming can help – if u overcome ur initial inhibition to it.
