So many people in family have stress or anxiety and take meds for it. I will not, so must have other ways to deal.
Thanks for the article
I find I started doing this calming technique of closing my eyes and taking a deep breath and counting to 10 when I feel like I’m losing it. Doesn’t work 100% of the time but I DOES take the edge off and stops me (usually) from exploding!
Good solutions to many "thought" problems I have. Thanks for the article
Okay this grammar is appalling. “Destress in three minutes or FEWER.” Sorry proper grammar isn’t cute.
These were all good points. I got a lot from this article.
Helpful article for me
That last list is the key: stopping and thinking about the reason for the feelings helps one see how to stop stressing over things we cannot control, and makes us feel MORE in control.
Great article! I need to print it for myself to read over again.
Great article. I'm going to print it out and put it on my fridge so I'm ready the next time I want to stop emotional eating.
great article, my only question is how do you remember to do these things in the actual moment?
Thanks for a great article! :)
I loved this article. Some great points made here. I think I will Pin it to refer to again.
