Go-To Strategies to Reduce Stress

I’ve made a handful of video and word posts throughout this blog, on specific ways to reduce stress. And, now, they are organized here in one central hub– enjoy! Let me highlight some of the top ones:

Video posts:

  1. Pronking: This is the first video that I published. Here I describe the “pronking” technique, the origins, and how it (literally) can help you reduce stress.
  2. Self-Compassion: Here I describe what self-compassion is, and how it can be peace-giving and helpful for you. I made this video on a hike during a stressful time where I needed to show myself some compassion.
  3. Light- tapping: I made this video directly following a trauma training I went to. Here, I describe what light tapping is, along with the “why” and “how. ”
  4. Paraverbal language: In this video, I describe what paraverbal language is– and how it might calm you (and others) down when stress is high (specifically related to the pandemic, but applies to all situations where stress is high).

Word posts:

  1. Mindfulness: Learn how to be mindful– and that being mindful can literally reduce stress, anxiety, depression, and many other things. 🙂
  2. Grounding Exercise: Learn about one way to literally slow you down, increase your mindfulness– and in doing so, calm your nervous system.
  3. Covid-19 Resources: Here I highlight a bunch of different techniques to help reduce stress, increase connection and help you feel more grounded and at peace.
  4. Mindfulness Resources: Here are a few different places to check out, whether you are just beginning your mindfulness journey now or hoping to strengthen it. 🙂

I hope these tips are literally helpful to you; I equally hope they make you laugh and refresh and inspire you with creativity and joy. 🙂 !
