Do you ever stress?
Or should I ask: “Who DOESN’T stress?”
You’ve been told to relax, chill out, meditate, eat healthy, exercise, yada, yada, yada…
but all that advice is just too abstract.
So what do you do? You ignore it. And then you stress about stressing !
The most powerful way to reduce stress is to go out into nature.
Yet maybe you are short on time……
If you only have 1-2 minutes, why not bring nature to YOU?

*Here are 4 proven tips to do FOR ONLY 1 MINUTE at a time (really!) to drastically reduce stress:
*yawn* Chances are that just reading this word will make you yawn. Yawn once and the next 10-20 will follow. You will feel energized afterwards. No kidding! The difficult part will be to stop yawning 🙂
Run in place. Start slowly. Then rev up. Run (jog, hop, hey, why not dance?!) for 60 seconds. Go on, pretend you’re a little kid again! Your body will thank you for it.
Close your eyes. Roll your head around in a full circle S-L-O-W-L-Y in one direction. Gently. You don’t want to pull any neck muscles by accident! Switch directions and do the full circle going the other way.
Pet your own hand. Sounds funny? Yeah, it may but this is soothing and relaxing. Caress your hand and forearm like it was your favorite pet. Switch hands. Repeat. Nice, huh?
