If you’re looking for ways to find calm in the chaos and to understand how stress affects your health, then you’re in the right place.
I, too, needed to find ways to ease stress which is why I started this website.

My name is Jebra Turner, and I’ve been reporting on personal health and healthcare for magazines and brands for over a decade. My website will cover many of the frequently asked questions about stress, mindfulness, natural health, and other creative ways to create calm and well-being.
I will share step-by-step tips to help you find balance in small moments of your daily life. I hope to encourage you to take time for what matters and to get started with mindfulness.
Mindfulness — awareness of how we eat, work, move and feel in our bodies — is just one practice that works really well even in our very busy lives. I’ve discovered many others. They include guided meditation practice, gentle yoga, the creative arts, and more, for a unique experience carefully crafted to be like no other.
Does that mean that I’m all zen and relaxed now? Not at all. I still have my difficulties and there is always more to learn and discover. But by stepping out of “busy” and diving into the present moment, I’ve been able to bring greater focus, confidence, and caring into everything I do.
By paying attention to what’s going on around us, instead of operating on auto-pilot, we really can reduce stress, unlock creativity, and boost performance.
When we can control our thoughts better, we see the good things already present in our lives and so feel free to try, every now and then, to simply do nothing for an hour or more.
In addition to articles that revolve around different mindfulness topics, such as meditation, self-compassion, and on-the-go awareness, you’ll find DIY crafts and how-to info. Look for video tutorials, audio meditations, downloadable coloring pages and much more.
I’ve found that there are two main approaches to overcoming stress. The most obvious way is to avoid those things which cause the stress response in the first place. But in the real world that’s obviously hard to do. The second way, which may be easier in the long-term, is to learn to manage our response to these stressors.
If we can’t avoid those things which would normally trigger our stress response, we can learn to deal with the events more effectively. That way, we can massively reduce the physiological effects that our stress hormones would normally inflict upon us.
Please visit regularly as I will be adding articles almost daily, and let me know if there’s anything you would like to know more about.
