Don't Sweat it!

Stress is a normal part of being human. It can help motivate you to get things done. Even situations of high stress due to illnesses, unemployment, or a painful life event can be a natural part of life.

When you're at breaking point!

Stress is normal but if you let it get out of hand, it becomes an unhealthy way of life. Everyone has their way of managing stress. What’s yours?

 “To achieve great things, two things are needed: a plan and not quite enough time.”

―Leonard Bernstein

Take a breather

How do you take a break?  A walk in the park? Reading a book? Seeing A film?, Hanging out with friends, pumping some iron? Finding that destressor is important when the pressure starts to mount.

Stress - your ally

Stress can also be your ally. Think of a time when a little pressure got the best out of you, took you to another level of performance, and got you exactly where you needed to be.
