    Feeling Stressed? Omada Can Help with Tips on How to Destress in Five Minutes or Less

    Your Omada benefit can help you learn ways to reduce your daily stress and improve your health. The best part is you’re already covered by the TAC HEBP!

    Here's a few tips to help you destress in five minutes or less:

    Step 1:
    Relax your body. Find somewhere to sit or lie down comfortably.

    Step 2:
    Close your eyes and inhale slowly through your nose. Feel your breath as it flows down and causes your belly to expand.

    Step 3:
    At the end of your inhale, pause for a few seconds then exhale fully through your mouth.

    Step 4:
    It’s all about focus. Pay close attention to your breath as it goes in and out of your body.

    Step 5:
    Your attention will wander – that’s fine – just refocus on your breathing.
