Palms sweating? Jaw clenching? Short of breath? Before you pull your hair out, check out these expert tips that will keep you stress-free
On the outside, it probably just looks like I'm highly organized. But with my brain on overload 24 hours a day, it's tough to just unwind once in a while. I may have a neat desk and color-coordinated Post-It notes, but at what cost?
Maybe it sounds worse than it is, but like I said, I'm stressed out. That's why I mustered up the courage to go out and ask the experts for some help. As you might have guessed, stress is something just about everyone deals with, but unless it's managed it can weaken your immune system or lead to other health problems -- which is reason enough to go to the pros.
Linden Schaffer, a certified Wellness Expert and founder of Pravassa, a wellness company based in New York City, revealed her tips on how to breathe easy even during the most stress-inducing moments. I also got some insight from Gail McMeekin, founder and president of Creative Success, LLC, and the author of book, "The Power of Positive Choices." Through some much needed advice (and a little tough love) I came up with five tips that'll help you de-stress and minimize your feelings of stress as it occurs. Trust me, they're worth every click.
