Traditional stress management tools don’t work for long. No matter how hard we try, stress keeps sneaking back into our lives, adversely impacting our health, relationships, and every aspect of our lives. Stress-related disease, addictions, and unhealthy behaviors are on the rise.
The reason for the rampant stress in our lives is that stress isn’t caused by outside events, like our boss, the economy, or the traffic. Stress is created inside of us and can only be reduced when we learn to Relax With Life.
Author Kenyon Gatlin tells her transformational story from being chronically stressed-out, and anxious to calm, peaceful, and deeply happy. Kenyon learned to reduce stress by applying ancient yoga principles to all aspects of her life. She discovered yoga is much more than poses on a mat, but a revolutionary way to approach daily life with an unshakable peace.
You know those things in life that drive you crazy and make your shoulders and the back of your neck tighten up? Things like traffic jams, taxes, your unreasonable boss, or even the state of the economy? Stress is everywhere today, and most of us feel more stressed out than ever before. Today’s guest, Author Kenyon Gatlin, is here to share some easy techniques that will help you relax and feel peaceful, no matter what you are doing, who you are with or where you are.
