Spring is upon us. It’s time to dust off winter, take a deep breath, and ready ourselves for a new season. It can be a busy time of year, but don’t stress. No, really, don't stress. Stress is a natural negative reaction in your mind and body to challenges. And while it can positively motivate you to get through certain obstacles, it can also wreak havoc on your physical and mental health. You can't escape stress, but you can change how you deal with it. When you're faced with anxiety:
*Take a deep breath and focus on why you're actually feeling this way.
*Take a walk or do any exercise where you can think about the situation and how to handle it without blowing up, figuratively and literally.
*Be proactive and schedule regular massage appointments. Massage has been shown to reduce stress significantly on physical and psychological levels.
