Stressed - Follow up from January Tuesday @ the ridge

Cope with the “Ups & Downs” of life in healthy ways.
Learn healthy techniques for Stress Management.
Try these practical tools at home, at the office and with your children, to feel less
reactive and more in control, promoting more kind and accepting relationships.

Nourish Your Body
Eat at least 3 meals a day: skipping meals adds stress to the body, which in turn promotes the production of the stress hormone (cortisol) which slows the metabolism and inhibits healthy organ function. Susan Albers-Psy.d., Eating Mindfully
Eat Mindfully
This can help to avoid heartburn, bloating and indigestion.
Reduce Caffeine
This stimulant to the central nervous system increases irritability and insomnia.
Be Active at Least 30 Minutes a Day
Physical activity relaxes and energizes your body. No time? Just 10 minutes, 3 times a day will do. Dr. David Posen, Is Work Killing You?
Build Activity into your Day
Park farther from the door and make your work break a walking break.
Taking these opportunities while you’re walking from your car to the door, or up the stairs, to take some deep breaths with a positive intention to feel calm and peace gives perspective and increase your tolerance for others and compassion for self and others. Dr. J Dispenza, Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself
Think Positively
This, as all of the above, requires practice. You will be more apt to bring a positive thought to your mind as your patterns shift. Dr. Bruce Lipton, The Biology of Belief

Deb Taylor, Holistic Wellness Specialist, will lead an interactive presentation to promote confidence in our ability to manage stress while bringing awareness to our intentions.
It's simple but not easy; however, coming from a more mindful, calm and accepting place is a worthwhile journey.
