Here’s a promise that could not be more timely: You can dial down your level of stress in just a few minutes, with no ponderous meditations, medications, or martinis required. Written by Dr. Jennifer L. Taitz, a clinical psychologist who specializes in distress tolerance and whose New York Times article on managing stress in the pandemic went viral, Stress Resets provides 75 evidence-based and scientifically grounded techniques and exercises proven to bring quick relief from stress so you can take a much-needed pause and reset rather than make things worse.
Has an upsetting event become all-consuming and you need a dose of perspective? Make a pie chart of your life. Unable to calm your overthinking mind? Try singing your thoughts. Can’t stop ruminating over a fight you’re having with a friend? Gaze at calming photos. Feeling emotionally overwhelmed and verging on panic? Dip your face in a large bowl of ice water for an instant sensory reset. Can’t turn your mind off at night? Progressive muscle relaxation will likely help.
In addition to resets for your mind, body, and behavior, there are preventative buffers to help you become more resilient in everyday life. Alongside all these strategies are meaningful research, expert interviews, and relatable anecdotes that encourage readers to learn adaptive self-soothing.
Whether you want the big picture as well as the help or you’re just looking for exercises to keep in your back pocket, Stress Resets says it clearly: You have the power to improve how you feel. And all it takes is a few minutes.
