Before you know it, you’re swirling around in the eye of a stress tornado! You are “spinning”. One simple task turned into an unmeasurable amount of stress and now you don’t even know where to start….you’re stuck!
RELAX – it could be as simple as 5 steps to re-center yourself and put things back into perspective. Give it a try and leave your comments below.

#2 FOCUS on your heart. Close your eyes and put your hand on your heart, breath deep and push all your energy to the muscles around your heart.
