Susan Ginsberg of Stop and Breathe Helps You Make Long-Lasting Goals for 2019
The new year is rapidly approaching—a time to make goals and find a fresh perspective to achieve great things. Susan Ginsberg, founder of Stop and Breathe and stress management expert, says she provides soothing and informative corporate
“Relaxy Hour” stress-reduction workshops teaching breathing, relaxation and visualization techniques. She also works privately in her home office with individuals wanting to adopt a healthier lifestyle.
“These tools can better equip those seeking changes this year and have a clear picture of what they want to do to be focused on making 2019 a year of fulfillment and success,” she says.
Tips for Stressing Less and Living Healthier This Year
1. Breathe Deeply
Develop an awareness of your breath.
2. Start Your Day with an Intention
State what you want to achieve or accomplish when you wake up each morning. You may do this silently or say it out loud!
3. Visualize a Positive Outcome
Like an athlete visualizes his golf shot or free throw before approaching the ball, picture a positive outcome of what you want to happen when faced with a challenge.
4. Embrace an Attitude of Gratitude
Research shows that expressing our gratitude each day has a positive effect on our health and well-being.
5. Lavender Up
Research has shown that scents can dramatically alter our mood, and lavender is known to be one of the most calming and soothing scents.
6. Get Movin’!
Walk, dance, swim, run, bike, do yoga— just get moving!
7. Laugh a Little—or A LOT!
8. Collect a Good Tribe
Surround yourself with people who make you feel good.
