stress management: Instant stress relieve

Instant stress relieve

TRY THIS TECHNIQUE ONCE A DAY, or whenever you feel stress mounting. It takes less than 15 minutes to relieve stress. Pick a focus word or phrase (such as "one" or "peace"), sit quietly in a comfortable position and close your eyes. Relax your muscles, progressing from your feet to your calves, thighs, abdomen, shoulders, neck and head. Breathe slowly, and say your focus word silently as you exhale. Continue for at least 10 minutes. Don't stand up right away; continue sitting quietly for a minute or so, then open your eyes and sit another minute before rising.--G.O.


* pick a focus word

* sit quietly

* close your eyes

* relax your muscles

* breathe slowly

* repeat your focus word
