Dealing with stress

By: Aileen Baxter

Stress is normal, it’s the way we deal with it that can be harmful to us. Here’s a quick way to help you take a step back and lessen the impact.  Every time you start to feel yourself becoming stressed, stand up straight, or sit up straight and take three deep, slow breaths.  As you are taking your breaths don’t focus on the stress.  Focus only on your posture and your breathing.  Try to remember to do this the whole week every time you start to feel a little stressed.  It doesn’t matter what the stress is.
