Anxiety and Stress Management

San Francisco Anxiety and Stress Management

If you wish, just for a moment, you can focus on the waves and imagine how good it would feel to relax and play in the waves of life… like the dolphins.

We live in a complicated world, so completely eliminating stressors is probably unrealistic. However…

You can be happier and healthier by learning to identify and reduce the stress in your life and change your response to it.
