Ep. 22: Relieve Coronavirus Lockdown Stress – 15 Tips with Dr. Lynn Laird

With so many governors ordering businesses to close and people to stay home (however unconstitutional all that might be), people are experiencing increased levels of stress! The mental, emotional, spiritual, and physiological impacts are very real, and frankly not healthy.

Join psychologist Lynn Laird as she and Daniel discuss 15 ways to lower our stress levels. Many of these tips seem quite simple, but the question is always, “Are you doing them?” Lynn and Daniel also offer tips to help implement these stress reducing techniques. Give a listen to what Lynn and Daniel have to say, and if you pick up just one or two useful ideas, it will be worth it.

Also, if you know of stress reducing tips we didn’t cover and you’d like to share them, put them in the show notes!
