10 Relaxation Techniques That Zap Stress Fast
2 point post for one of the tips you have used or are going to use this week! 

Workout 15.1

Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 9 minutes of:
15 toes-to-bars
10 deadlifts (115 / 75 lb.)
5 snatches (115 / 75 lb.)
*scaled 85/55

 These workouts begin with the athlete standing under their pull-up bar with the barbell loaded to the appropriate weight. After 15 toes-to-bars (sit-ups or hanging knee raises for scaled divisions) are completed the athlete will move to the barbell to perform 10 deadlifts followed by 5 snatches. After the last snatch is completed the athlete will move back to the pull-up bar and start their next round.
Your score for Workout 15.1 will be the total number of repetitions completed.

  9. Looking to get back in rhythm with you guys. I've missed the entire month due to work. I signed up for the CrossFit open not sure if my body is ready for it. Hopefully I'll be able to make an apperance at the gym today. I'll probably look really sluggish for 15.1 but we shall see.

  15. I definitely fight stress by laughing, exercising, and breathing deeply/prayer. I'm glad that my students regularly make me laugh out loud with how witty and clever they are. It helps balance out the stress I often feel at work. Sorry for my slacking yesterday, Team Determined! I thought it posted, but clearly it did not! Really looking forward to trying out 15.1!

    Let's do this Team Determined!

  18. I will take some deep breathes and then I will sit in a dark room and crank up the tunes. Maybe listen to some Yanni, Enya, Zypher, or even that creepy red head pedophile looking dude. I think his name is Ed Sheeran.
