Simplified Stress Reduction is based on an efficient way to develop greater understanding of moment-to-moment experiences, helping us cope with stress and the challenges of everyday life.

One of the surprising findings of practicing Simplified Stress Reduction is how much of a difference it makes to focus your mind and calm down. It actually makes a meaningful difference in your well-being.

It helps balance your responses to stress and negative emotions.
