Because not to stress you out further, but both chronic and acute stress can have negative impacts on our healthand can lead us to engage in less-than-wise escapist habits. This is helpful when we have to get in gear to, say, lift a car off a small child or flee an ax-wielding horror movie villain.
Are you climbing out of your skin, or is your mind racing? Do you have physical pain, or are feeling overwhelmed?
Getting out of your head and into your senses in this case, your sense of touch can bring you back to the here and now, says Kissen. Or you can try this quickie exercise.
If the stress is more mental than physical and you feel your mind looping around itself, give yourself a discrete task, such as organizing your shoes or doing a word puzzle. Run a bath and sink on in.
Assuming you like crafting Kissen emphasizes some people are overwhelmed by the mere thought! And working mindfully at it can reduce stress even more: one study found that folks who were told to stay gently focused on what they were doing while washing dishes boosted their effect although being mindful while you do most any activity may show similar benefits. Years of research have found PMR helps reduce anxiety and calm breathing.
