Learning how to manage your levels of stress is a key component of mood mastery and also long-term wellbeing. Our bodies are running outdated biological-programming which isn’t equipped to cope with the day to day events and overstimulation of modern life.

We need to reprogram the mind to stay calm and actively manage our own physiology with various stress reduction techniques:

  • Keep a positive attitude.

  • Accept that there are events that you cannot control.

  • Keep a positive attitude.

  • Exercise regularly

  • Learn and practice relaxation techniques; try meditation, yoga, or tai-chi for stress management.

  • Eat healthy, well-balanced meals.

  • or just BREATH..The simplest method for stress management is to regulate your breathe! The speed and depth of your breath create a feedback loop informing the body what is going on. If you are rapidly panting it sends the signal ‘something is wrong!’ if you take calm deep breaths it sends the signal ‘all is well’. Choosing to breathe more fully and slowly (e.g. when in a stressful situation like an argument) will prevent the cascade of stress signals. Regular deep breathing (for 5 minutes a day) reduces stress levels significantly.
