The holidays are coming! The holidays are coming! Wait... we've been hearing people talking about the recesssion, the depression, lay-offs, cutbacks, benefit reductions... ick! yikes!
Stock in alcohol companies is on the rise! Why? Because people are trying to cope with the stress! While a glass of wine might be a healthy option for some- I wanted to take a moment to share some other stress reduction techniques that might help you de-stress and protect your wallet and your waistline through the holidays!
These are just a few resources taken from my "anxiety" page- there are tons of resources out there to help you de-stress and feel better!
Here is a recording I made that helps many people feel more relaxed after listening. It takes less than 10 minutes and you can have it for free! If you like it, make it a regular part of your day or week. The more you practice relaxation- the better you will get at it. (You've been practicing being stressed and anxious for a while-look how good you have gotten at doing that!) You can download your "Relax" recording here.
Kaiser has also put together a great list of relaxation recordings for the community. They have recordings specific to panic attacks and anxiety. They also have recordings on things like anger, forgiveness, stress, relaxation, weight loss, and other things that can be related to anxiety.You can access all of these recordings here.
