John Shackleton: Manage stress

A presentation in Taranaki - watch the video!

Wednesday, October 24, 2018

Author: Terri Anderson

Rural Support Taranaki shares:

John Shackleton events in Stratford yesterday encouraged the audience to consider mindfulness (it's not scary) and breathing meditations to enable thoughts to be current and now. Our wiring needs to be changed so we stop thinking about things we have NO CONTROL over such as guilt over past events or anxiety about the future. After 21 days you will notice a big improvement in wellbeing.
