  • This is because your body's stress response can get triggerd often throughout the day and, if your body doesn't return to its regular state of relaxation afterward, you may find yourself in a state of chronic stress.

Learning to relax your body and your mind can be more effective than simply relying on distraction or resilience.

5. Have fun for stress management

5. Have fun for stress management

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
