Ten Stress Management Tips (Cont)
6) Agree with somebody; even for the sake of peace.
You will be amazed at the effect it can have. Try to take yourself out of the battle ground and don't 'sweat the small stuff'.
7) Learn to accept what you cannot change.
A well known prayer asks for the serenity “to accept the things I cannot change, the courage
to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference”. This philosophy will help
you avoid unhappiness, cynicism and bitterness.
8) Listen to your body.
When you are tired, hungry or thirsty, do something about it. Also recognise stress and anger
in your day and counter it immediately with a brisk walk, ten minutes’ in deep relaxation or
whatever works for you.
9) Learn how to say ‘No’.
Simple, but effective little "no" when approapriate is an amazxing time management technique. Where a ‘no’ is the appropriate response, say it without guilt.
10) Manage your time.
Take one thing at a time. Don’t overdo things. try and simplify your life when you can rather than multi-task it, as this only leads to stress overload
