    A to Z of stress management:

    - Always take time for yourself, at least 30 minutes per day.
    - Be aware of your own stress meter: Know when to step back and cool down.
    - Concentrate on controlling your own situation, without controlling everybody else.
    - Daily exercise will burn off the stress chemicals.
    - Eat lots of fresh fruit, veggies, bread and water, give your body the best for it to perform at its best.
    - Forgive others, don't hold grudges and be tolerant -- not everyone is as capable as you.
    - Gain perspective on things, how important is the issue?
    - Hugs, kisses and laughter: Have fun and don't be afraid to share your feelings with others.
    - Identify stressors and plan to deal with them better next time.
    - Judge your own performance realistically; don't set goals out of your own reach.
    - Keep a positive attitude, your outlook will influence outcomes and the way others treat you.
    - Limit alcohol, drugs and other stimulants, they affect your perception and behaviour.
    - Manage money well, seek advice and save at least 10 per cent of what you earn.
    - No is a word you need to learn to use without feeling guilty.
    - Outdoor activities by yourself, or with friends and family, can be a great way to relax.
    - Play your favourite music rather than watching television.
    - Quit smoking: It is stressing your body daily, not to mention killing you too.
    - Relationships: Nurture and enjoy them, learn to listen more and talk less.

    - Sleep well, with a firm mattress and a supportive pillow; don't overheat yourself and allow plenty of ventilation.
    - Treat yourself once a week with a massage, dinner out, the movies: Moderation is the key.
    - Understand things from the other person's point of view.
    - Verify information from the source before exploding.
    - Worry less, it really does not get things completed better or quicker.
    - Xpress: Make a regular retreat to your favourite space, make holidays part of your yearly plan and budget.
    - Yearly goal setting: Plan what you want to achieve based on your priorities in your career, relationships, etc.
    - Zest for life: Each day is a gift, smile and be thankful that you are a part of the bigger picture.

    Welcome Meenakshi

    Indeed a fine post that will lift our inner spirits!

    A "positive attitude" is what i call the need of the hour!

    Here is my work to add to yours!

    Say to yourself every morning:
    - Today is going to be a great day!
    - I can handle more than i think i can!
    - Things don't get better by worrying about them!
    - I can be satisfied if i try to do mu best!
    - There is always something to be happy about!
    - Am going to make someone happy today!
    - It's not good to be down!
    - Life is great, make the most of it!
    BE AN OPTIMIST!

    This i have been doing for the past four years. And has helped me a lot.

    Regards
