Module #3: Practical Tools
In this module, you'll learn five very powerful tools to help you manage your stress on an ongoing basis. Three of these tools have the ability to help you calm down your physical body by turning down the intensity of your body's fight or flight response.
Two of the other tools are powerful writing tools for helping you process your emotional pain before it makes you ill, overcome your negative attitudes and beliefs and start on the path of true self-discovery and self-improvement.
You will also learn about the subtle symptoms and signs of stress and how and why they occur -- and most importantly how they wreak havoc in our lives.

This simple, but often overlooked, skill holds the physiological key to turning down the intensity of your body's stress response. When you truly learn the right techniques for deep abdominal and diaphragmatic breathing, you will have a lifelong tool for helping you to calm down your overactive nervous system and restoring a sense of peace, calm and clarity to your life.
