STOP DENYING
Wellness Wellness
Listen to the wisdom of your body. Begin to freely admit the stresses and pressures which have manifested physically, mentally or emotionally.
This replaces working until the physical pain forces you into exhaustion or unconsciousness!
Wellness
Wellness Wellness
AVOID ISOLATION
Wellness Wellness
Don t do everything alone! Develop or renew intimacies with friends or loved ones. Closeness not only brings new insights, but also leaves no room for agitation and depression.
Don't shut your office door and lock it from the inside so no one will distract you. Don't assume negative views - like people are just trying to hurt your productivity or make life difficult for you.

CHANGE YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES
Wellness Wellness
If your job, your relationship, a situation, or a person is dragging you under, try to alter your circumstance, or if necessary, leave.
Unhelpful attitude: If you feel something is dragging you down, suppress these thoughts. This is a weakness. Drink more coffee or eat to cope.

DIMINISH INTENSITY
IN YOUR LIFE
Wellness Wellness
Pinpoint those areas or aspects which summon up the most concentrated intensity and work toward alleviating that pressure.
Common Attitude, buy Unhelpful: Increase intensity. Maximum intensity = maximum productivity. If you find yourself relaxed and with your mind wandering, you are probably wasting time!
Wellness
Wellness Wellness
STOP OVERNURTURING
Wellness Wellness
If you routinely take on other people's problems and responsibilities, learn to gracefully disengage. try to get some nurturing for yourself.
Unhealthy attitude: Always attempt to do everything. You ARE responsible for it all.
Wellness
Wellness Wellness
LEARN TO SAY 'NO'!
Wellness Wellness
Youll help diminish intensity and stress by speaking up for yourself. This means refusing inappropriate requests or demands on your time or emotions.
You are in for trouble if you never say "NO" to anything; if you believe that recognizing your limits indicates weakness. Don't have the motto "Never put off until tomorrow what you can do at midnight!.
Wellness
Wellness Wellness
BEGIN TO BACK OFF AND DETACH
Wellness Wellness
Learn to delegate, not only at work, but also at home and with friends. Detaching this way helps you rescue yourself for yourself.
Unhealthy Attitude: Delegating is a sign of weakness. If you want it done right, you have to do it yourself.
Wellness
Wellness Wellness
REASSESS YOUR VALUES
Wellness Wellness
Try to sort out the meaningful values (your core values) from the temporary and fleeting: the essential from the non-essential. Youll conserve energy and time, and begin to feel more centered.
Not Helpful: Thinking that it is selfish to focus on your own values. Underestimating the value and power of living your life in line with your core values.
Wellness
Wellness Wellness
LEARN TO PACE YOURSELF
Wellness Wellness
Try to take life in moderation. We all have a limited amount of energy available to us. Decide what you want and need in your life (guided by your core values), and then begin to balance work with love, pleasure, relaxation and other healthy behaviors.
A Common, but Unhealthy Perspective: Being able to have a balanced life is a myth. No one understands how busy and complicated my life is! I cannot restructure my life — the only thing that matters is constantly moving and being productive.
Wellness
Wellness Wellness
TAKE CARE OF YOUR BODY
Wellness Wellness
Don't skip meals, abuse yourself with rigid diets, disregard your need for rest or pleasure, or break doctor appointments. Take care of yourself physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
Please Avoid: Your body is your servant and must obey your commands no matter what. Dont listen to feedback from your body — it might tell you to make some changes!.
Wellness

DIMINISH WORRY AND ANXIETY
Wellness Wellness
Try to keep worrying to a minimum — it changes nothing. You'll do better if you spend less time worrying and more time taking care of your real needs. Remember to use what you have learned will help decrease worry and anxiety — using exercise, proper nutrition, HeartMath tools, prayer, etc.
Do You Believe This Untruth?: If you are not worrying about things that are important to you, you must not be very committed to those things.
Wellness
Wellness Wellness
KEEP YOUR SENSE OF HUMOR
Wellness Wellness
Begin to bring joy and happy moments into your life. Very few people show negative effects of stress and anxiety when they are having fun and maintain a positive attitude.
Destructive Belief: There is not much to be happy about and laugh about in life. Being positive and happy is not possible with all I have to deal with in my situation. Besides, it really won't make much difference to my health to be happy.
