      Hey Ryan,

      I wish we could start the program sooner but we have to honor other commitments we have made. I understand your pain so here are some ways you can ease the pain while you wait.

      First, if you shift your focus to the fact that you’ll soon have help managing the stress in your life–not just stress related to debt–but all the stressors that actually reduces your discomfort now. Most teachers suggest dose-dependent stress reduction techniques and the truth is they help for a little while–but they do not change the root cause of stress. But they are helpful until you can change the root cause. Here are some of the common dose dependent suggestions:

      Exercise
      Help someone else
      Meditate
      Tai Chi
      Yoga
      Massage
      Breathe deeply
      Laugh
      Go outside

      You can use any of those to help you now.

      But one we would suggest is something you should do every time you feel stressed about your student debt (or really about anything) and that is this:

      “Yes, I’m stressed by that now but I am going to learn ways to reduce the stress beginning in October so I don’t really have to worry right now. Help is on the way.”

      Write that down. Put it in your wallet and pull it out every time you feel stressed. If these words don’t work for you, tweak them a bit until you find ones that ease your stress when you think about them. The above may be going too far or not far enough–it depends on how you’re feeling.

      Another thing you could do is read my book, TRUE Prevention–Optimum Health: Remember Galileo Even though the focus is on health, the same techniques that manage stress to improve health will help you now.

      I hope that helps. Thanks for commenting.

      Jeanine Joy
