With work, home and all the directions we are often pulled in life, its sometimes easy to fly off and get overly upset about little things. Here are some tips to help you reduce stress, so you have more self control and awareness in your life.

All forms of movement, release stale and stagnant energy and reduce stress
This helps clear the mind and gain perspective. It also helps gain awareness and intelligence
3. Change your food
Move away from processed food and foods with high sugars. Nutrition is the key to a healthy body. Processed foods and sugars build up toxins in the body, which increases internal stress and weight. Also, drink lots of water. Reduces stress load of the body. It flushes out toxins, and hydrates.
