This week’s lectures were excellent. I’ve been going through a lot of stress lately at work and life. When I do my yoga practices, so many times I just end up in tears because I’m overwhelmed in all aspects of my life.

1. Common occurrences that invoke stress:

  • debt
  • workload
  • love life

2. Body sensations that arise with stress

  • increased heart rate
  • clenching of the muscles and hands
  • grinding teeth
  • feeling like I cannot breath

3. Personal Statement of Intention

I am human. I will switch my off switch, breathe and focus.

4. Off-Switch Protocol

  1. Notice body sensations
  2. take a breath
  3. Focus
  4. Take 5 deep breaths
  5. take a breath
