TIPS FOR STRESS MANAGEMENT

Quick things you can do to "rewire" your brain during any stressful or emotional moment
Compiled by Mrs. Mansfield

WALK IT OUT

Stand up and walk out of the room for a minute, then come back in.

RELAX YOUR SHOULDERS

Consciously push your shoulders down toward the floor and breathe.

DEEP BREATHS

Breathe in slowly, hold for a second 'at the top,' then breathe out slowly and hold for a second 'at the bottom.' It takes some practice to do effectively!

SMILE!

Force your face to smile for a minute: smiling when you don't feel like it tricks your body into releasing 'happy' chemicals to your brain. Show your teeth!
