Managing Stress, From Dr. Gail Saltz (WATCH)

Psychiatrist Dr. Gail Saltz suggested deep abdominal breathing to relieve stress when she joined me on Mondays With Marlo. Achieve a body-mind connection to help quell anxiety, and engage in muscle relaxation exercises to relieve the tension in your body. Visual imagery and distracting yourself by partaking in enjoyable activities can also help.
