Audrey Parker illustrates the importance of decompressing after stressful situations. According to Parker, all individuals must have a stress relief ritual in order to properly unwind. Getting a good night's sleep, exercising regularly, and getting outside to interact with nature are all ways to decompress and relieve stress. In addition to these physical activities Parker also names hobbies as a great way to reduce stressful thoughts and behavior.
From taking up knitting to long cross country drives along an empty, open road, the speaker believes that taking time for oneself is key, allowing for clarity, relaxation and well being. Whether one listens to music to unwind or looks outside of themselves for personal comfort, everyone needs a decompression plan specifically designed for them, allowing for a sense of clarity and comfort in a hectic world.
