One of the best articles I have read about stress management. After recently suffering a heart attack this article hits close to home and I plan on following the advice given as Stress Management is one area of my life that always has been low on priority list especially at work.
These are nice ideas but are sometimes beyond possible. I have a 5 month old and a 4 year old, a disabled husband, I'm a graduate student who also works full time and just finished cancer therapy. So taking time for myself is just not something that I can do right now because then my kids miss out on me, and they really need me right now after all the health scares our family has had to weather. Oh and because I had a new baby my electricity, gas and oil bills are all behind due to maternity leave.
So I agree with K_Renee above, if only it was that easy to manage to do get the suggestions done.
Very informative. As someone with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, I can attest to the fact that periods of high stress will not only affect your mind, it also affects every aspect of your body. Great tips!

If only it were so easy... (sigh)

This was really helpful and very timely for me. I have already been putting some of these ideas into effect, but hadn't seen how important personal care, including personal time really is! Thank you!
