Plan ahead – Whether it is getting the family ready in the morning or planning a trip, getting everything ready ahead of time always relieves the stress of rushing around trying to get everyone out the door. It also relieves the press of forgetting something as you have thought about it ahead of time.

    Hi Angela,

    Thanks for the tips, i have been doing some of them in my daily life already, but some i must admit i neglect, i’m so passionate and dedicated to my work that i sometimes end up sleep at 3 or 4 am, not very healthy i must admit, but i just want to get stuff done, maybe i could take a glass of wine with it or a beer, it would definitely improve the mood i guess…

    Thanks for sharing,

    Mark.

      Thank you Mark for sharing. I totally understand your passion and dedication to your work. I think you will find if you will make a commitment to getting at least 6 hours sleep each night you will be more productive the next day. You will get the same amount of work accomplished and live longer in the process!

    These days, our lives are so stressed that we need releases. It really doesn’t help that employers and financial circumstances contribute to stress. It can be a killer if it’s not controlled.

    These are 10 awesome tips, and just by implementing 2 or 3 of them can have a positive impact on our health. For me personally, taking deep breaths and listening to calming music really helps with relieving stress, especially after a hard day at work. And also having the odd glass of wine here n ‘ there does help to relax. As long as we don’t drink a whole bottle in one go lol.

    Your guidance will certainly help those wanting to live stress-free lives.

    Neil 🙂

      Deep breaths really work! I was amazed when I started implementing that at work. My headaches became less and I was able to think better. Sometime life is just not worth whatever is making us so uptight especially at work. I am talking to myself! LOL Thanks for your comments.
