Stress Reduction

It is our purpose at Soulutions for Balance to assist individuals and organizations with tools for managing how to respond to stress consciously in a more holistic and sustainable way.

 We have embarked on the age of multi-tasking and efficiency at a remarkably fast pace. We are benefited by instantaneous communication, convenience and unlimited access to information, but it has come with a price. As with all evolution, there is pressure to change in order to survive.  We are experiencing the effects of this pressure at alarming rates. It is estimated that 18% of the American population (approximately 40 million adults) is afflicted with the most common mental illness in the United States; stress and anxiety. The American Journal of Health Promotion reported 75-90% of all Primary Care Physician visits are attributed to stress related issues (ADAA, 2010-2011).  In order to survive, we must address how we are responding to stress. A shift from reactivity to responsibility is the first real step in creating a new way of being in this modern world.
