Stressed out? Harvard has an answer

For $16 you can buy the book here, or I’ll give you the one-minute relaxation technique here.

What to do when you?ve got a minute to spare.
“Place your hand just beneath your navel so you can feel the gentle rise and fall of your belly as you breathe. Breathe in slowly. Pause for a count of three. Breathe out. Pause for a count of three. Continue to breathe deeply for one minute, pausing for a count of three after each inhalation and exhalation.”

There’s a lot more including understanding the stress response, the different faces of stress, and how stress affects the body.
