A Calmer, Healthier You is Within Reach


  • This article is so rewarding. There are so many ways to relax. I use music and reading to relax my nerves. I camp with my horse too and that is so rewarding. Out in nature, listening to the wildlife. Ahhhh, the good life! - 12/27/2015 2:25:42 PM
    I've always loved yoga as a way to relax. To me, it is meditative. - 1/13/2014 8:51:47 AM
    I...still need chocolate. Well. I want it, anyway. ^_~ But these are fantastic ideas, and I will definitely put them to use! - 8/26/2013 9:12:50 PM

  • Who doesn't have stress? I know I do! I have been trying deep breathing. Also I think that stretching helps. In the car on the way to work and when I get to work I practice deep breathing. When I get to work I do an upper body stretch. This helps me start my day off in a relaxed manner. Also, I am not sure if I believe in aromatherapy, but I do use a hand cream that supposedly promotes stress relief. And of course, exercise - I go for a walk every day at lunch to clear my mind. Also, getting enough sleep helps too! - 5/6/2013 8:32:10 AM
    These are all wonderful suggestions. I really like the idea of imagining stress sliding off the back like water. Imagery can be a very effective. - 4/9/2013 9:55:35 PM

  • For me, this sentence is so funny and ironic: "Unless you’re lucky enough to be able to escape to a tropical island at the drop of a hat, learning how to deal with stress in a positive way is more important than ever." I guess I would have to escape to another island.
    I live in a tropical island and it seems everybody is always stressed out. However, the tips in the article are very useful. - 5/5/2010 1:07:59 PM
  • I have been doing mental imagery when I bike on the local Rails to Trails. I find it like stepping into a time machine, and I can almost hear the chucg of the traiins that one were there, hear the ghostly whistle as they round the bend. I read the article on Walking Meditation....I do Biking Meditation. I also practice deep, diaphramatic breathing to drift off to sleep. - 1/18/2010 9:05:58 AM
