Stress affects everyone, damaging our health and relationships. Here are Dr. Nelson’s tips for reducing stress in your life:

Plan ahead and be flexible about your expectations. Think about your plans for vacations and family gatherings. Everyone else has expectations and sometimes they won’t match yours. Plan for spontaneity. If you allow the plans that others have to be a part of what brings you joy, you’ll have more fun as everyone shares ideas and activities.

Be aware of what your body needs. This includes healthy food, plenty of water, rest and exercise. So don’t throw your routines out the window when you’re on vacation. Get plenty of exercise so you’ll feel good. Continue eating healthy. You’ll feel better about yourself if you’re really taking care of your body

Choose Your Emotions: Most people have this mistaken belief that our emotions choose us; that we are at the mercy of whatever emotions we tend to start feeling. But the reality of it is, no matter what the circumstance is, we always are choosing our own emotions. It’s important to recognize that fact. You don’t always have control over what happens to you, but you can choose to respond proactively.

Identify and release “trapped emotions,” unresolved feelings from past negative and traumatic events. This emotional baggage can cause us to make wrong assumptions, react emotionally; it also contributes to anxiety, depression and most forms of illness. Dr. Nelson shares simple methods to release emotions that are a root cause of stress, anxiety and depression from his bestselling book, “The Emotion Code.” Download a free copy at
