           Reducing Stress

Much of our stress is caused by the busy lives we lead. Here are some useful tips to help reduce your stress:

Breathing Exercise

How we breathe effects our body. Deeper breathing can produce calming results but like any technique it needs to be practised before hand., so that you can use it in a  situation which maybe stressful to you i.e. an interview. When stressed there is a tendency to tense muscles especially around the shoulders and deep breathing can help.


There are many CD's and tapes available ranging from soothing music to ones which use visualisation techniques. Taking time to do even one thing specifically for yourself may help with managing stress.

Professional Massage

Massage therapy can be very beneficial for stress relief. If you are not used to spending time relaxing this may be difficult at first. Many massage therapists use aromatherapy oils, which are also beneficial.

Take some Exercise

Buy a reliable pedometer and record your daily steps, build walking into your day even walking up stairs rather than taking the lift will help. The official recommendations are 10,000 steps but aim to improve your fitness overall by keeping a weekly log. Park your car further from the office or shops and enjoy the satisfaction on improving your daily steps and overall fitness. Try a new sport, make certain you do something you will enjoy.

Counselling can help

Counselling, can help by spending time  with someone who is trained to listen, by encouraging greater self awareness. This, followed by commitment , motivation and a wish to change can work to identify the causes of your stress and explore better ways of coping with it. This may include looking at negative self beliefs and challenging them.
