  4. 4. Stress Management<br />Keep a diary - Keep a list - for at least a fortnight - of events, times, places and people that seem to make you feel more stressed. Once you have identified your pressure points take action to resolve them<br />Talk to someone - Talk through your diary with a good friend, your partner, a therapist - even the act of discussing things often makes you feel better. Ask for impartial advice<br />Aromatherapy– Using 100% essential aromatherapy oils can have excellent results in baths, massages or oil burners. Lavender oil = general balancing oil, Bergamot for Depression. General stress use Cedarwood, Clary Sage & Neroli. Important – most oils not allowed when pregnant<br />Exercise– Cardiovascular exercise releases endorphins, which are nature’s natural tranquilisers & anti-depressants. Ideally 45 mins Cardio Vascular work 3 times /week, however even 20 minsof moderate exercise 3 times/week is statistically effective in staving off depression<br />Breathing Techniques: Every emotion we experience has an associated breathing pattern. When we are anxious we breathe high up in our chests, when we are calm we breathe deep into our diaphragm. By changing your breathing you can change your emotional state. Breath in for 7 counts & out for 11, deep into the diaphragm as slowly as possible. <br />07946 526 838<br />
  5. 5. Stress Management<br />Listen to your body – feed & hydrate it responsibly, rest it when its needs it. When the stress is on it is even more important to look after your physical well being <br />Avoid stimulants – alcohol, refined sugar, cigarettes, drugs – all stimulate the body & create stress. If you are addicted, detoxgently. In the case of drug addiction it is likely you will need help<br />Spend time with rewarding people – If one particular area of our life is taking over eg children or work, we tend to find our self esteem gets caught up in how we are doing in this area – if things aren’t going well we feel like a failure. Make time to talk to people outside the stressful environment who value & support you & can remind you that you are more than a role you are multifaceted & multi talented all-rounder. <br />Stop stressing about what you can’t control, change what you can control step by step – remember almost everything is a choice – to stay in your job, your relationship, your financial/family commitments – if it’s making you ill make plans to change it or move away from it in your own time under your own terms<br />Manage your time better – ABC prioritisation tool<br />07946 526 838<br />
