Stress…we all talk about being stressed. What do we really refer to?

We generally use the word “stress” when we feel that everything seems to have become too much – we are overloaded and wonder whether we really can cope with the pressures placed upon us.

Anything that poses a challenge or a threat to our well-being is a stress. Some stresses get you going and they are good for you – without any stress at all many say our lives would be boring and would probably feel pointless. However, when the stresses undermine both our mental and physical health they are bad.

Show emotions. Talk, laugh, cry, get angry. Let it out!

Practice above ūüôā !

Why do some couples seem so head-over-heels? It’s not that their lives are any easier or more perfect than yours – but they do know how to keep the daily grind from eroding their relationship. Get some of what they have by incorporating the following happy-couple strategies into your love life.

Help your partner feel more loved and secure in your love so that he or she can open up to you and express feelings and ideas without fear of being attached or judged. Compliment, praise, give a hug. Small gestures make the grandest statements.

Living simply has a lot to do with giving yourself permission to say “no”. It means freeing ourselves from commitments and obligations that complicate life or interfere with what we really want to do. Identify one or two things or events that burden you and simply let it go…

By wanting – and sometimes, doing – less, we create more space for the things that really matter.

Third “recipe” – Seek to limit your work outside of the home to 30 hours a week, 20 if you are a parent. To live a balanced life, we need ¬†downtime to daydream, relax, prepare a leisurely meal or take a walk. Surrounding activities with empty spaces whenever possible makes actions more productive and meaningful.
