TOP TEN STRESS BUSTERS

by Dr. Carol Renaud Gaffney

  1. Start the Day Right. The first 15 minutes are the most important for setting the tone of the day.
  2. Be careful what you think. No stinkin’ thinkin’ allowed. Remember, regardless of how tough it is right now it probably isn’t really the worst day of your life.
  3. Give yourself a time-out, maybe a two minute moment, from whatever is getting to you.
  4. Value who you are – not just what you do.
  5. Get Back to Basics
    1. Eat right
    2. Sleep enough
    3. Exercise your mind, body and spirit every day
    4. Reduce alcohol and caffeine intake
  6. Plan your work and work your plan. List all the things you do, select the most important and leave the rest for later
  7. Come from love and kindness.
  8. Become self-caring, not selfish. This often means saying "no" to someone else or something else, which is a "yes" to you.
  9. Spend time with people you care about and who care about you.
  10. Know yourself
    1. What are your hot buttons
    2. What are your signs of stress and STOP before they stop you.

And the most important:

Breathe, breathe and breathe some more.
