The Container

This is an exercise for temporary stress management around specific issues. For example, you may have difficulty studying for an exam because you are so overwhelmed by all the other academic and non-academic stressors in your life. Adopted from Kate Young, Ph.D., this exercise will help you focus on one thing at a time, and will give you a sense of control over your worries.

You can play the audio for this exercise below.
