I have to read thru the EFT again but it did seem more complicated that i want to deal with.I would prefer pictures of either one. I will be happy when wintr is done and my gardens are planted especially my flower garden. In the mean time I have flowers blossoming in the house to enjoy. Georgine

I would prefer to meditate because I tried EFT and found it too complicated, and didn't notice positive effects.

Would you prefer to look at pictures of flowers or of landscapes to help you relax?

Emotional Freedom Technique (see www.youtube.com/watch?v=TRq8o1MEUtU and www.youtube.com/watch?v=EVsfK3BCSX8 ) since it helps relieve stress or Walk/Jog outside (along the grove of pine trees in my back yard or along a path in the park) when its not windy and the sun is out.

Meditate since I try that and EFT (see www.youtube.com/watch?v=TRq8o1MEUtU before talking to a friend.

Now chose between "meditating" and "EFT" (Emotional Freedom Technique)

PS I think we should consider what Sheri said about how this game works. "I think many of you already know about this game. If not, you are to choose between the two choices that the previous person has posted and explain why you chose it over the other option.
The key to THIS game is that is has to do with Stress Reduction in POSITIVE or NON SELF-DESTRUCTIVE ways. Don't forget to choose one, reply why you prefer that choice, and leave 2 POSITIVE choices for the next person. :)" I think you should keep the choice if it is related to the next choice that suggest just add the next choice or go with two related new choices (They only need to have a connection to stress reduction) .

Take a walk with Brandy. She sets a good pace and when we are done my stress is gone and maybe I even see a way to get rid of the problem giving me stress in the first place.

Just checking out this game and saw the choice to go for a walk or read a book,, hard choice as i love to do both. I missed out on this game and i do wonder where members disappear. Stress is one of the worst things to deal with these days, this team should be busy all the time. I know everybody is busy and I don't get here as often as i should .

The key to THIS game is that is has to do with Stress Reduction in POSITIVE or NON SELF-DESTRUCTIVE ways.

I'll start:

Journalling or Deep Breathing?
