B O P: Breathe • Observe • Proceed

Stress seems to cascade from one encounter into another encounter, building up until it begins to affect ourselves or those around us. Wouldn’t it be helpful if we could hit a “re-start” button and keep each encounter separate, unique and contained? Then we could move onto the next encounter open to what is presented to us.

Now you can! Try BOP. BOP is a simple, effective stress management technique that can help you during your work day and throughout your busy life. The effectiveness of this stress management tool skyrockets when you can incorporate it deftly into your daily routine.

Learn to BOP by:

Listening to the audio link (1:20); Reading the transcript.
