Calming & De-stress

If you are prone to high levels of anxiety or stress it’s invaluable to have a wide range of calming strategies. The more agile you become at reducing the stress response, the better you will handle the inevitable challenges of life.


As with learning any new skill, whether riding a bike or driving a car, the more you practice, the more effective those calming strategies will become. Initially you may wish to practice when you are reasonably relaxed. The more familiar you are with that strategy, the more you will be able to use it in more challenging situations.
