IMPACT Annv Spl: Josy Paul on ways to beat stress

Josy Paul, Chairman & Chief Creative Officer, BBDO India, lists the seven stress busters for a creative person.

Old Monk and rainwater
Pour a peg of Old Monk in a glass. Keep it out in the rain. When the glass fills half way, gulp it down. Your stress vanishes in a cloud.

Forgive someone. Feel like God. God has no stress.

Jump with frogs
Look for frogs in the neighbourhood. When they jump, do the same. Leaping about has a sense of abandon. Stress will worry about you and stay away.

Bubble wrap
Pop some bubble wrap. It’s the sound of stress bursting away.

Chase the monsoons
Run after the rain. Down your road, up a hill, Marine Drive, follow it like a wet puppy. Wash away your stress.

Ear massage
Starting on the bone directly behind your earlobe, apply gentle pressure with your thumb and forefinger and follow to the top of your ear, two or three times. Then rub briskly.

Sniff burning wood
Nature has created aromas that absorb stress. Wood is a bad conductor but a great stress buster.
