I hope you had a chance to check out my latest episode of Be Well with Jordyn where I speak about how to be free from stress. If not, watch it here.
Being free from stress- wouldn’t that be nice? I’m going to challenge you (and myself) to reframe that thought. Yes, being free from stress would make many things in life much easier. But what about the good stress? Is there even such a thing? The answer is yes! Think back to a time when you had motivational stress that guided you to get a task done. Or even anticipatory stress when you were anxiously waiting for something good to happen. Without our body’s natural stress reaction, we would feel nothing at all. I don’t know about you, but I would rather feel those butterflies in my tummy than feel nothing at all.
While some stress is good, there are ways to reduce the stress that is negatively impacting your daily life. In this month’s Be Well with Jordyn, I discuss mindfulness. Watch that video, and all of the videos in the playlist here. There are several tips, tricks, and exercises to try to free yourself from stress.
Be Well and God Bless America!
