Simple steps for stress reduction

 In Mental Health Wellness and Stress

As we conclude April 2017 with the focus on Combatting Stress, the following are some simple steps for stress reduction:

  1. Completely and profoundly accept, love and forgive yourself- charity begins with YOU.
  2. Use humor and positive talk at work and in your personal/family life.
  3. Learn to SMILE 🙂 and LAUGH again and also be ready to give and receive HUGs. Can you?
  4. Show more appreciation and gratitude to yourself by using kind words and actions – you’ll see others follow you!
  5. Be open to modalities like Guided Imagery, Tapping/Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) to help you relax and be in control of stress.
  6. Avoid the use of harmful drugs and alcohol and make use of Employee Assistance Program (EAP) at work, as needed.

Wishing you a happy day!
