« back to classes page
Stress isn’t the enemy. It is our perceptions of stress that amp our anxiety and use up all our steam. Events happen every day. How we interpret those events can set the stage for how we feel and how we react to others. Reducing stress is as easy as understanding what stress is, understanding what stress is to you, and using that knowledge to restructure your thoughts. Turn stress into a stepping stone, not a stumbling block!
