On January 8th ISES NY Metro met at Chelsea Piers – Sunset Terrace to talk STRESS! And how to learn to DEAL with it!
We were privileged to hear from a panel of professionals that all deal with STRESS from different angles, YOGA teacher deluxe, Elena Brower, owner of VIRAYOGA; NUTRITIONIST, Samantha Rigoli from the Healthy to the Core; and PSYCOLOGIST, Doctor Karen, Karen Binder-Brynes Ph.D! ISES NY Metro’s own president Paul Neuman from Neuman’s Kitchen moderated the panel!

• Feel the wholeness of your experiences – even embarrassment, who or what you can’t forgive. Meditate for 5 minutes/day
• Breathing is a gift. More oxygen creates an inhospitable environment for disease
• “You take care of who you are in that moment and be an example, everyone will fall into place beautifully”
• Clarity, directionality, elegance, purpose comes from all of us meditating for five minutes each day. We all impact each other
• You don’t have to go to the mountaintop to meditate. Take five minutes a day
• Healthy fats (avocados, nuts) sustain you through a long event. Start off with a good breakfast – high fat and fiber filled foods
• “It takes time, money, thought, prep – it’s an investment to not grab fast food. Fast food is not an option for me”
• Don’t obsess about numbers as long as you’re getting an appropriate balance throughout the day
• We become over-adrenalized when we are stressed. Over-adrenaline will always overtake our ability to think
• Asking for help is so therapeutic and helpful. Go to someone you trust and ask. Acknowledging you’re overwhelmed is a relief
• “Walking away from a situation even for a second if you can is so important”
• Recognize how you react to stress and get to know yourself so you know what to do to react. You’ve got to breathe
