3 relaxation exercises to decrease stress

Why this resource is helpful:

Stress is a part of life. In fact, it serves a vital role in keeping us protected from potential dangers. The body reacts to a stressful situation by increasing your heart rate and breathing to deliver a powerful boost of blood and oxygen to the muscles and lungs. Plus, the mind becomes more alert, and the senses sharpen as the body prepares to either fight or flee from any perceived threat.

Most of us have experienced these side effects of stress at some point in our lives. And often these symptoms are benign. But when emotional stress lingers for months on end, such as that experienced during the pandemic, it can harm your health. Now, more than ever, it"s crucial to have a skill set for squashing or at least softening the symptoms of stress.
