Episode #42: Find Relief from Acute Stress

When you’re faced with a high-stress situation in life, it can be all-consuming. Every moment may be challenging, and reminders of the situation pop up unexpectedly. It’s hard work to get through times like these (and you will), but sometimes you need a break from the constant, acute stress. 

To find the strength and energy to overcome intense emotional stress, breaks from the bigness of the situation are essential, and that’s what this episode is all about. I’m sharing simple and unexpected ways you can find relief from the intensity and give yourself some gentle care. 

These tips can be used anytime, not just in dire situations, and are excellent tools to keep on hand when the unexpected happens.
