How do we improve how we deal with stress? What is the best way to deal with competing demands? We live in a fast paced world. It is no wonder that with our constant connection to technology and how most of people never unplug that we are feeling overwhelmed. For most people when they are stressed their breath becomes shallow. It is a natural reaction to take shallow breaths during times of stress. The next time you feel overwhelmed and are feeling stressed stop for a moment. Notice how you are breathing. Is it shallow? What are you focusing on? Most likely you are scared of something like missing a deadline at work? What is your body posture like? Are you slumped over? Try radically changing your posture and your breathing. You will want to fully oxygenate your brain with deep breaths and good posture in order to face your challenges. Ask yourself what is it that you want in this moment? What can I do right now to improve this situation? Next time you feel stressed take a deep breath and focus on what you want and then proceed. It may sound simple but this works.
