Stress Resilience

April is National Stress Awareness Month,  and do we need it!  In a recent study by the American Psychological Association, 75 percent of adults reported experiencing moderate to high levels of stress in the previous month, and nearly half reported that their stress has increased in the previous year. Yet, only half of participants said that they are doing enough to manage their stress. Meditation can help.

Scientific research has shown that meditation can improve your mood, boost your immune system, improve regulation of stress hormones, enhance your ability to empathize, calm anger and anxiety and help you cope with pain and depression.
Unfortunately, people tend to assume meditation takes a lot of time or requires a special place. You imagine meditating in a beautiful park, or when you’re on vacation, or when you get home from work, when this big project is finished, when the kids grow up…or maybe when you retire. You imagine meditating anywhere but right here, in the middle of your stress, when you need it most. (When you’re very stressed, even the thought “I really should meditate” can be stressful; – I really “should” anything is :).   So you push peacefulness farther and farther into the future and farther away from this moment, now.
You can train yourself to practice meditation in one minute!  I will teach you how to do this & we will practice it each week in my 3 week Stress Resilience for Busy People Teleclass series.  Find out more about that and additional strategies for stress resilience. Sign Up Here for This Teleclass
