iVillage.com: 15 Easy and Natural Stress Busters That Work

Walk Through a Door

Ever find that once you start thinking about something that’s really bugging you, it’s hard to shake off the stress and switch to happy thoughts? Try getting up and stomping through a few doorways! A recent study at Indiana’s University of Notre Dame suggests that this simple trick can help you put an end to worrisome thoughts. How?
