Bust through Stress in 3 minutes or less

July 13, 2011

The reality is that stress is an inevitable part of life. However, the key to living a more balanced life is to manage stress so it doesn’t manage you as opposed to trying to eliminate it completely.

Here is a quick Watershed Training Solutions Stress Busting strategy:

Take 10 Slow Deep Breaths – Why? Breathing is one of the easiest systems to control in order to relax (Dr John Mason, Guide to Stress Reduction). Close your door or put on a headset so your colleagues won’t be disturbed. Close your eyes. Take 10 deep slow breaths where the exhalation is longer than each inhalation. As you breathe, make sure your abdomen fills up like a balloon when you inhale and sinks in when you exhale. Very quickly you will feel more relaxed and able to refocus.
