If you’re feeling some tension I’ve got a neat idea you can try to release your stress.
This tongue twister might just do the trick!
I wrote this tongue twister earlier today and I hope it helps you. I found it to be quite beneficial 🙂
Decide to de-stress not distress from your stress,
Decide to deplete and digress don’t distress!
Do not be stressed by distress caused by stress,
Decisively set your own course for success.
Try reciting the tongue twister in a triple meter placing the emphasis appropriately. You’ll find that the words are somewhat calming and that the poem can also be used as a vocal exercise.
Another idea? Listen to and practice Rodney Saulsberry’s tongue twisters which range from the moderately simple to the simply challenging.
I also recommend reciting nursery rhymes or reading Dr. Seuss books. Lilting rhythms and childlike simplicity are great catalysts for feeling better and more relaxed.
What’s your favorite way to combat stress? Do you recite anything in particular?
