Ease Stress and Anxiety with These Free Mindfulness Tools

Some occasional stress is a normal part of life, but when we experience high, prolonged stress without taking time to rest, our nervous system gets stuck in a cycle that clouds our judgment and affects our overall health. Unlike stress, anxiety is a persistent feeling of dread or apprehension, and is the most common mental health issue in the U.S.

Whether you experience stress and anxiety occasionally or regularly, building a personal toolkit for dealing with these difficult emotions can help you get more rest and help your nervous system recover from wear and tear. Ease stress right now with these mindfulness tools from Calm (https://www.calm.com/), our partner in mental well-being:

  • Use the 7 Days of Calming Anxiety program to soothe any mental and physical responses to anxiety and stressors
  • Gain a better understanding of the root causes of your stress, then develop your own personalized relaxation toolkit with the Managing Stress workbook
  • If you need immediate help stepping back from a worry spiral, use Panic SOS, a quick guided meditation to ease panic and anxiety with grounding techniques

If you’re experiencing chronic stress or anxiety that doesn’t go away, please reach out to our Employee Assistance Program, Higher Ed EAP at 800-252-4555 (available 24/7/365 at no charge) or your doctor for further resources and support.
