I have a big event in a few days, and the anxiety level is about to hit the roof! I meditate daily but it's been hard for me to stay in the moment and relax. Are there things you do in particular to help relieve stress in intense times?
Get a massage. It's difficult to be stressed out when you are feeling so totally pampered and relaxed. If you need a better reason studies have shown that it can reduce your tension by up to 50% because it triggers a parasympathetic response in your nervous system.
