‘The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another.’ - William James Now it's your turn 1Do you find your mood being adversely affected by stress? If so, be honest and write down what types of stress they are, i.e. family, health, relationships, finances, etc. and think about what resolutions and solutions you can take to mitigate their impact and improve the situation. 2Think about the people you can safely talk to about your stress and see if they can do things to help you? 3 Are you spending too much time with negative people whose attitude adversely affects your mood? If so, consider finding more positive people to spend your time with. Look for individuals who inspire you to be more generous, compassionate and patient. They are the ones who will make your life 'glow'. (Remember; 'As your life evolves, so should your circle.' - Germany Kent) 4Do you try to micro-manage everything? Sometimes we try to control way too much, and it becomes impossible and very stressful. Learn when and when not to intervene in everything. 5This week, find 3 things you are doing that are superfluous or a bit of a waste of time and stop doing them. It is also a good time to start practising how to say ‘No’ to people when they make demands of you that you do not want to go along with. Trust me, it's a great skill to develop!
