Tips for Quick Stress Relief

Dog drinking though a strawThis week I’m excited to share one of the most thorough and practical articles I’ve seen on stress and how to deal with it.

I had never heard of using your senses to fight stress, but it makes sense. That’s just one of a panoply of ideas presented in the article.

Most of my stress comes from my own thoughts, rather than what’s happening in the present moment.

I learned from this article that focusing on specific sensory stimuli, like petting a dog or cat, or tasting something wonderful, is an effective way to combat stress.

The article encourages readers to think about their own personal response to stress, rather than assuming stress is the same for everybody.

It’s a good read, chock-full of practical tips. You can find it at this link:
