    Hi Dana,

    Thanks for sharing these 14 great tips for stress reduction and renewal.

    Laughter really is the best medicine and I’m happy to see that as #1 on the list.
    I have utilized just about all of the techniques that you have on your list and they certainly do reduce stress.

    Two other techniques that have worked for me during times of stress are also to make sure that you are eating healthy and try to eliminate all the negative talk and negative people and replace that with positive self talk.

    Keep providing us with this great information,
    Marc

    Hi Dana,

    This is a great list for de-stressing. One of my favorites is decluttering. When you declutter, it is an incredible feeling. Declutter not only means housecleaning, or cleaning your office or email box. It goes beyond to the mental decluttering. It can include toxic relationships, people who argue/gossip, the chatterbox in your head, tolerations, punishment, rules or beliefs that you got from someone else that don’t support you, limiting beliefs, rush & hurry, newspapers, late night TV, need for approval, regret, fear, guilt, delay, things that require maintenance, obligations or past commitment’s, unmet or ego driven goals, and meaning behind all your stories from the past.

    The rest on your list are all very important and practical ways to reduce stress. Thank you!

    Personal coaching is focused one-on-one coaching tailored specially over a clients most important targets, interests, pitfalls and wants. Coaching follows a traditional program but customized to each and every individual client. Because the coach is dealing one-on-one on the client, personal coaching periods are additional centered and tailored for each client when compared to community coaching sessions with numerous clients. An important principle in coaching is that clients are ultimately responsible for his or her actions and doing the jobs to achieve the results they wish. The coach serves like a facilitator, supporter, or guide, but doesn’t “do the job” with the client.
