Techniques for Stress Management & more importantly… Living an Intentional Life of Calm, Peace and Happiness

A few thoughts on stress…

Derived from the Latin word “to draw tight”

Part of our evolutionary drive to survive

79-90% of doctors visits are due to stress

Over 1 million work absences in Canada directly due to stress. Dr. Molly Schotchmer

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 available opportunities while walking from your car to the door, to take deep breaths with a positive intention, gives perspective and increases your tolerance and compassion to others and self.  Dr. J. Dispenza, Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself

Think Positively

Neurons that fire together, Wire together. This too requires practice. You will be more apt to bring a positive thought to your mind as your patterns shift.  Dr. B. Lipton, The Biology of Belief

It’s simple but not easy; however, coming from a more mindful, calm and accepting place is a worthwhile journey.
