Most people experience or cope with stress on a daily basis, and it’s important to release the accumulated tension caused by a stressful lifestyle or occupation. These cortisol responses actually increase the chances of future cortisol responses and results in a negative feedback loop. Many people are aware that they are stressed, and try to unwind, with varying degrees of success. However, there are many other people who aren’t consciously aware that they are accumulating stress throughout the day. Excessive and consistent cortisol production can reduce your brain’s ability to function properly. Stress can kill brain cells, and chronic stress has a shrinking effect on the prefrontal cortex, which is an area of the brain responsible for planning, reasoning, discernment, and social behavior.
Stress is absolutely treatable, and prevention of chronic stress greatly improves the quality of life. This video was designed for those who need a quick “tune-up”. It consists of an ascending sequence of 7 notes with a duration of 3 minutes per note. It is repeated 3x for those who want to listen to it more than once, and don’t have a loop feature on their mobile device. It is convenient for individuals who don’t have enough time to listen to a full video, but could use an opportunity to reduce tension.
Talking to a therapist or psychologist can release a surprising amount of stress and anxiety.

Counselors on BetterHelp are licensed, trained, experienced, and accredited psychologists (PhD, PsyD), marriage and family therapists (LMFT), clinical social workers (LCSW/LMSW), or licensed professional counselors (LPC). All counselors have a Masters Degree, or Doctorate Degree in their field.
All counselors have been qualified and certified by their state’s professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice. While their experience, expertise and background vary, they all possess at least 3 years and 2000 hours of hands-on experience.
I’ve been using this service for a few months now, and I believe it could be useful for everyone. Meeting with a local therapist can be expensive, and sometimes inconvenient to meet with every day. This service is much more affordable, and you can do it anytime, anywhere, and as much as you’d like, even from the comfort of your own home.
