You become AWARE that you have stress and that it might be a good idea to lower it.
You determine WHY you want to lower your stress.
You figure out HOW you are going to lower your stress.
Breathe- Take a deep breath. Draw the oxygen into your belly.
Relax- Tense all muscles for 7 seconds. Slowly relax each muscle, one at a time.
Take Inventory- Identify areas of tension in your body. Start with scalp, moving down.
Stretch- Unleash pent up stress by stretching your muscles out.
Listen- Research shows blood pressure lowers when people listen rather than talk.
Focus- Try to maintain sustained attention on only one thing at a time
Meditate- Find a quite space, a comfortable position and keep a passive attitude.
Visualize- Just imagine yourself relaxing deeply in whatever scene you choose.
Deep Relaxation- Simply count backwards from ten, very slowly.
You take ACTION and begin to exercise, mediate or do yoga.
You TRANSFORM your goal into a habit, understanding that you’ll experience a few set-backs along the way.
