How do you reduce stress and anxiety and stay in the present?

Hello Friends,

I have has a stressful month. I have to constantly remind myself to stay in the present and just be here. Today I spent sometime meditating and doing some breath work in my yard. It was grounding. Just wondering what you all do to keep stress at bay?


Easy to say: stop wallowing in it! :scream:

Harder to do but, absolutely, consciously, focus on today, what you’re going to do today, next week, month, year etc. Only allow yourself a look back on condition that it is to celebrate past achievements. That was then, this is now.

My wife had a fall at work on Monday and is home with a badly bruised elbow. She’s in a sling and basically one-armed until it heals. Strangely enough, it has brought us closer together, as she is asking me for help rather than the other way round. Only a temporary status, I realise, but I’ll take the positives from it.

And that’s the point. There may not be many, but look for the positives wherever you can find them.

I read your message over a few times last night and this morning thank you!


I’m glad you took it in the spirit it was intended. Stay strong, be human :smiley:
