    Abdominal breathing helps reverse the uncomfortable physical symptoms of anxiety. It also lowers susceptibility to stress and tension by decreasing overall levels of physiological arousal.

    Learning to communicate more effectively often involves better identifying and accepting your own feelings and needs, recognizing your rights, developing verbal and nonverbal assertiveness skills and practicing (on paper, with a friend, “for real”) assertive communication.

    Grief is a natural process experienced by all people, to one degree or another, after the occurrence of a loss. Significant losses, such as the death of someone close to you, the breakup of a close relationship/friendship, or the loss of hopes and dreams, are some of life’s most stressful occurrences. Grieving is an adaptive response to loss.

    People with healthy self‑esteem see themselves in an accurate way, value their own strengths and contributions, and accept their limitations. They see themselves as unique individuals who are deserving of happiness regardless of their experiences.

    Sleep serves a restorative function for your body and brain. It is important to daily functioning, as it can influence your health, mood, behavior, relationships and work/school performance. There are large differences in the amount of sleep people require. A good night’s sleep can range from several hours for some people, to more than ten hours for others

     A traumatic event is defined as one that threatens the safety or survival of self or others. Witnessing or experiencing such an event has the potential to create significant distress and overwhelm typical coping mechanisms.

    Social anxiety is characterized by intense and persistent worries about embarrassing oneself, or showing anxiety symptoms (American Psychiatric Association, 1994). Those who experience social anxiety assume that they will perform poorly, that others will judge them harshly and that their performance reflects personal inadequacy (Wilson, 1996). As such, feared situations are anticipated and endured with intense distress, or (most commonly) avoided altogether (American Psychiatric Association, 1994). Some people experience feelings of anxiety after the feared event is over because they believe they performed poorly and were evaluated negatively.

    Stress is...not simply the result of an undesirable event. The way we interpret a situation, and perceive our ability to cope with it, will contribute to how stressed we feel. The way we think and behave can maintain, increase or reduce stress.

    How you grieve a lost relationship is a process unique to you. Different people(even members of the couple that have separated) will experience and demonstrate their grief in different ways.
