The 10/90 Rule for Managing Stress

Ever feel like you’re just trying to stay afloat? 


Like you constantly find yourself uttering words that start with the letters… WTF…


I want to introduce you to a concept called the 10/90 Rule. 


It’s the idea that 10% of life is what happens to you, and 90% is how you respond.  


So while we can’t control all of life’s WTF moments, with the right coping strategies and stress management tools, we CAN work to respond in a more optimal way. 


Here’s some things we can do to change the way we process & respond to those challenging moments: 

  • Breathing exercises 
  • Gratitude practices 
  • Prayer
  • Exercise
  • Journaling
