How to reduce stress in under a minute 💥
Anyone who has worked with me knows I'm a tad obsessed with the idea of "affect labeling". In other words, putting our emotions into words. Each morning, I ask clients "How are you? What are you noticing?" Why? There's solid science to indicate that the simple practice of naming what we're feeling can help us calm and reduce stress. I love this technique because it's so simple, so powerful and it's literally something we can do 100 times a day, anytime, anywhere. Here's the trick, though: we have to get specific with ourselves. If you struggle to get beyond "fine" or "good" when you ask yourself how you are, here's a rad list from the Hoffman Institute with a myriad of emotions you might be experiencing at this very second.
We have more free Uplifting sessions coming up next week, so please mark your calendars and join us! (And know that I'll probably ask you how you are when you arrive.)
