  • Acute stress is the type of stress that comes as quickly as it goes. It can throw you off balance and cause you to lose focus momentarily.
  • Every time you experience acute stress, effective relaxation techniques include breathing exercises, meditation, cognitive reframing, and progressive muscle relaxation.
  • When doing a breathing exercise for this type of stress, make sure that your count for your exhale is longer than the inhale, as exhaling is what minimizes stress.
