Stress Busting Tips 🧘‍♀️ 🧘‍♂️

It is time to cut stress with these stress-busting tips:

1. Exercise regularlyExercise helps reduce stress, improve mood, and boosts overall health. It also helps you sleep better. The NHS recommends at least 150 minutes of exercise a week that gets your heart beating faster.

2. Build a support network. Whether it is friends, family, neighbours, work colleagues or people you meet in clubs or societies, good lasting friendships help you feel warmth, security and connection.

3. Keep a positive attitude. Glass half-empty? Look for silver linings and good news in amongst the negative things in your day.

4. Let it go. As the song suggests, let go of negatives. Accept that there are things you cannot control.

5. Be assertive. Assert your feelings, opinions or beliefs firmly without getting angry, defensive, or passive.

6. Find ways to relax. Learn to meditate. Try relaxation recordings. Listen to the great music of classical composers.

7. Develop new interests. Having a sense of adventure can help you reduce stress. Listen to your dreams. Find things to be passionate about. Find a hobby. Be creative.

8. Get enough rest and sleep. When you’re under stress, your body needs time to recover. Give it the rest it needs.

9. Eat healthy, balanced meals. Your body needs good nutrition to help fight off the effects of stress.

10. Volunteer. When you spend time helping others, you take the focus off yourself and get a feeling of accomplishment.

Menopause 🙋🏽‍♀️🙋🏼‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️

Worth knowing ladies!

Declining oestrogen levels wreak hormonal havoc that can cause night sweats, and that is a formula for sleepless nights. Sleep deprivation produces increased levels of ghrelin – the hunger hormone – and decreased levels of leptin – the “stop eating” hormone.

Taking Medication 💊

Here are my top tips.
1) You might have to try a few different ones before you find the RIGHT one for you. Unfortunately this may take time, but it will be worth it.
2) Taking medications does not mean you’ll be taking it for life.
3) You must follow the doctors advice. (There can be side affects to not finishing your recommended course of tablets)
I know people who are no longer taking medication after a number of years. Also some who are on a continuous low dose. They have learnt skills like, mindfulness, yoga meditation and are managing day to day life.
Have a beautiful healthy week.
🙏🏽😇
