Stress Relief Tool – Keep Your Head Up

This simple gesture can make a big difference in your overall mood.

Have you ever noticed when you are down that you tend to hold your head down too? It’s your body’s natural reaction to your negative thoughts. When you think about things, notice whether your head is up (positive—thinking about future) or down (negative—thinking about the past).

Try to keep your head up – even for one minute. Focus on something at eye level or higher. Notice how this simple movement can make a positive difference in your overall mood and reduce your stress in the process.
