3 stress management techniques

-Guided Imagery: During guided imagery, you calm your body down and wipe your mind. You set up a relaxing tape or record for music or listening, then imagine yourself in different places. These places should be calming and places you feel calm at.


-Writing: Writing for 10-15 minutes can relieve stress by letting your emotions out. This keeps track of your progress and you can relate back to the paper when you read it over again.

-Breath: Breathing is what life needs. When you breath in a relaxed way, your mind automatically realizes it needs to calm down and everything is ok. You will reduce the strain of stress or any other source if you just breath.
