The pineal gland is helpful for regulating your mood, sleeping patterns, and energy levels. Activating your pineal gland will cause it to produce hormones that keep some of the most important aspects of your life balanced. These four ways to activate your pineal gland will help to keep your stress leveled and your mood bright.
Meditation is a great way to learn how to direct energy to certain parts of the body with practice—including the pineal gland. Meditation can also help activate your bioelectric energy, which can garner a good response from your pineal gland.
Sleep in total darkness
Sleeping in a dark environment helps to ensure you get a restful sleep. The dark environment encourages your pineal gland to produce more melatonin. Backlit devices such as tablets, cell phones, PC monitors, and televisions can confuse your sleeping cycle, as the light will stimulate serotonin production. This tricks your pineal gland into thinking it is daytime. Melatonin production from a dark room will help you to sleep deeper and feel more restful the next day.
Get out into the sun
Sun exposure stimulates the mind and gives the pineal gland a kick-start. Either direct or indirect sunlight will prompt the pineal gland into producing serotonin, which contributes to energy and mood levels. This is why you should avoid light after sundown. At night you need to produce melatonin to suppress the serotonin that makes you feel awake during the day.
Sun-gazing is the act of looking directly at the sun during the safest times of day—at sunrise or sunset. Looking directly at the sun is risky to the health of your eyes, and it is not recommended for more than a few seconds, even at low light periods like sunrise and sunset. Indirect sunlight can also help stimulate the pineal gland, so just being outside works as well.
As you can see these are just some easy ways to activate your pineal gland which will help your mood, sleeping and energy levels.
