  • What you do? In this modern world it is difficult if not impossible  to change stressful situations. What we can do  however is change and reduce our exposure to  those stressful situations.  th t f l it ti
  • Stress reduction Techniques St d ti T h i These stress reduction techniques are based on the  simple principle. These tips won t change the  simple principle These tips won't change the situation causing the stress, but they will, more  importantly, enable you to change your reaction and  importantly, enable you to change your reaction and relationship to the stressful situations.
  • Technique 1 – Humor Humor is one of the greatest and quickest devices  g q for reducing stress.  Humor works because laughter produces helpful  chemicals in the brain. Humor also gets your brain thinking and working in a  different way ‐ it di t t diff t it distracts you from having a stressed  f h i t d mindset. Distraction is a simple effective de‐stressor  ‐ it takes your thoughts away from the stress, and  thereby diffuses the stressful feelings. thereby diffuses the stressful feelings

Change your environment.  Breathe in some fresh air and smell the  atmosphere... Trees, rain, flowers, traffic fumes ‐ doesn't  matter ‐ stimulate your senses with new things.
  • Technique 3 – Rehydrate Go get a big cup or a bottle of water.  Here's why... Most of us fail to drink enough  y g water ‐ that's water ‐ not tea, coffee, coke,  'sports' drinks, Red Bull or fruit juice... All of your organs, including your brain, are  strongly dependent on water to function  properly. It's how we are built. If you starve your body of water you will function  below your best ‐ and you will get stressed.  Physically and mentally. Physically and mentally
  • Technique 4 ‐ Catnap or powernap (Not so easy but still perfectly possible)  Take a quick nap. It is nature's way of  recharging and re‐energizing. A quick 10‐30 minutes' sleep is very helpful to  reduce stress.  It's obviously essential if you are driving while  tired, but a quick sleep is a powerful de‐ stressor too.
  • Technique 5 ‐ Make a cup of Tea Any tea will do, but a flavored cup of tea is  even better.  Experiment with different natural flavorings  using herbs and spices and fruit. Fresh mint is wonderful, and excellent for the  digestive system.  Ginger root is brilliant. Many herbs, spices,  fruits and edible plants make great flavored  tea, and many herbs and spices have real  tea and many herbs and spices have real therapeutic properties.
  • Technique 6 ‐ Crying Not much is known about the physiology of crying  and tears, although many find that crying ‐ weeping  d lh h fi d h i i proper tears ‐ has a powerful helpful effect on  stress levels.  Whatever the science behind crying, but when you  cry you feel lighter from the stress (burden).  Of course how and where you choose to submit to  this most basic of emotional impulses is up to you. 
  • Quote: Quote:‐ Adopting the right attitude can convert a negative  stress into a positive one.  Hans Selye
