Got stress? Invite relaxation.

When life feels overwhelming, it’s worth remembering that stress comes from the outside. Reaching out for calming input can provide relief.

University of Vermont psychiatrist Beth Robbins, M.D. says the keys are to change behavior, thinking, and lifestyle. She recently discussed stress management on WCAX TV.

One way to reduce stress, said Dr. Robbins, is to “do things that bring the nervous system response down.”

Dr. Robbins will present “All Stressed Out: Symptoms, Physiology and Approaches for Relief” on Tuesday, March 1, 6-7:30 p.m., as part of the UVM Community Medical School Public Lecture Series.

Nervous system calming may be the most reliable result of massage therapy, craniosacral therapy, and foot reflexology treatments. Here are some of our posts on stress, the nervous system, and relaxation.
