Day 277: Dis Stress. Eu Stress. (Part 2)

Brent Payne September 16, 2023

Practice turning distress into eustress. When you find yourself in an anxious moment or stuck deep in a worry cycle, stop what you are doing, take a deep breath, and then notice how your mind and body feel and where you are right now. What is your breathing like? How does your body feel? What do you see and hear? Taking this mindful break can ground you and take you away from constant preoccupation with stress. Record your thoughts and results in your journal.
