Holiday stress starting already? Take 6 sec. to relax
Have you taken a “Pause” today?
When tension and anxiety starts to creep up on you, take a pause. Stop what you’re doing and take a deep breath in – count 1, 2, 3 (in your mind) – filling your belly, your lungs and then exhale with the count 3, 2, 1…with an outward “HAaaaaaaa”.
Taking a pause allows you to stay present and re-evaluate your situation. Release your tension with an exhalation! “Haaaaaaa…”
You will find yourself a little more relaxed from when you started.
