Stress Release Oasis


Life is filled with stressors and challenges that can elicit Default Emotional Responses (DERs). The most common combinations of emotional and physical responses form stress. The Stress Release Oasis page will have various short messages, affirmations, videos or inspirational short stories and that can help one create and build defenses against stress as the reader(s) find a much needed respite from many of life's challenges in that oasis. On this page, you can also ask the Stress Rejection Doctor questions related to stressful situations disrupting your life style. Please send your questions and contributions to Your input will be included on the Stress Release Oasis page; the SRN page specifically dedicated to helping its readers build their resistance to stress. Please take a moment to visit the Stress Release Oasis and relax!
