10 ways to easily relieve your stress George Dolgikh/PhotoSpin

“Oftentimes, the context may be different but the source of the stress is the same.”

“Identify those patterns, with help from others as needed, and work to change your script,” he added. “Sometimes making one change, if it is the right one, can lead to a multitude of benefits.”

For example, if you always procrastinate on major projects, that can lead to a lot of stress. But if you focus on working gradually on a project until it’s completed on time without having to rush in the future, that could be a major stress reliever.

Oh no! That shouldn't be the case. I'm so sorry. As the Founder of EmpowHER we should have said that in the article. My sincerest apologies! I will let you know what I find out. More stress is not what we strive to do as a company .. It's eliminating stress for women that we are trying to accomplish. I'll let you know what I find out. Sincerest Apologies!

Article is great and makes sense. I went to the website mentioned in this great article where I can get the daily, reasonable tips on reducing my stress, but guess what? You must pay to join. I couldn't quite understand the reason for the fees and I looked around the website. I just wanted a simple email each day to tell me how to reduce stress but I can't get it here without paying $90 or allowing a $10 monthly charge. So, in the end, this attempt to alleviate some of my stress has caused more stress. LOL. Ironic and typical, sadly.
