Managing stress and anxiety

a word breath written on a notebook

If you are feeling overwhelmed with stress or anxiety, try some simple techniques to head it off…

  • focus on your breathing and slow it down to a more relaxed pace – to slow your heart rate
  • relax your muscles – your jaw, your shoulders, your hands, your pelvic floor and your legs and feet – so you are not holding on to tension in your body
  • allow yourself to the time to de-stress and slow down
