Stressed out

Last month was National Stress Awareness Month — and who couldn't all do with less stress in their life?
We all feel stressed from time to time and it can lead to a number of major health problems , ranging from anxiety to severe depression and from mild acne to life-threatening heart attacks.

So how so we keep our own stress levels in check? Try these few tips:

  • Make up your mind to get and/or stay healthy — taking control of your personal health can make a great difference in the amount of stress you feel.
  • Make a change — do something different such as having a good tidy up or taking a well-deserved holiday.
  • Focus on now — live life in the "Now" and try to avoid dwelling on yesterday or tomorrow.
  • Talk to yourself — give yourself a good pep talk and focus on what is right with your life (not what is wrong).
  • Get the giggles — laughter is the best medicine so give yourself time to smile and laugh every day.
  • Meditate — a still mind is a stress-free mind, so take a deep breath, quiet your thoughts and let the stress melt away.
  • Keep a happiness journal — every evening for the next 30 days think about your day and list five good things you experienced.
  • Put a positive spin on it — no matter what challenge you may be facing, do your best to think about it positively and let that positive mind-set become your focal point.
  • Help someone else — putting the focus on another person takes the focus off yourself leading to less rumination and stress.

    Remember: "It's not stress that kills us, it is our reaction to it."
