UNWIND: Day Five

Before going further, thank you for showing up – not just to these sessions, but to yourself.  What you have endeavored to do is hard.  Asking you to create different patterns from those that have grooved over the years can be challenging.  Hopefully, by your participation, you have received some significant techniques to apply in your life right now that will shift your relationship to stress.

There is one more to offer.  It is nuanced and certainly might seem counterintuitive.  It’s befriending your stress.  Why?

UNWIND: Day Four

Today’s focus is on looking out for yourself, making sure you’re getting back what you need so that you’re refreshed and can stay mindful when stress rears its ugly head.  Most importantly, you must relieve yourself and take back ownership.

UNWIND: Day One

Our purpose in this first session is to offer simple steps to begin the process of unwinding from your stress.  

There are two things you must do on your journey to unwind your stress:

  1. Acknowledge, with neutrality, the stress by identifying what is causing it.

  2. Reconnect to you – that you are more important than any of your stressors.
