Stress-busting techniques

  • Establish regular times for when you eat, sleep, read, exercise, grocery shop and so on. 
  • Look after your health, with healthy food, regular exercise and calm times in your day. 
  • Be aware of thoughts that don’t help. 
  • Face whatever worries or scares you. Sometimes, worrying about a problem is worse than the actual problem.
  • Think about breaking a big problem into smaller ones. Work on your problem solving, and don’t wait for a sudden miraculous answer.
  • Write a to-do list. If a task or problem is on paper, then it doesn’t have to be in your head.
  • Hang out with people who care about you
  • Be mindful of how you’re feeling, where you are, and who you’re with. 
  • Practise relaxing. Yoga or meditation, or just sit quietly in the park and let your body and mind settle.
  • Take time out every day to do something you enjoy.
