“Health does not mean mere existence. Keeping out of the hospital is not health. To be able to resist disease, to bear strain, to stimulate mental vitality, and to feel the body as a luxury—as a bird feels when shooting through the air, and as a child does always—is health.”  
—Paramhansa Yogananda

Tips to Free Yourself from Stress, & Bring Yourself into Balance

1. Stop–Breathe–Reflect–Choose. Remember that regardless of external circumstances, you can control your own behavior.
2. Take short breaks throughout the day and consciously breathe deeply: release carbon dioxide, and increase intake of oxygen.
3. Train yourself to choose your response rather than reacting automatically.
