1. Understand when stress is causing you a problem
Try to make the connection between feeling tired or ill and the pressures you are faced with
Look out for physical warnings such as tense muscles, over-tiredness, headaches or migraines
2. Identify the cause
Sort the possible reasons for your stress into three categories: Those with a practical solution, those that will get better in time, those you can’t do anything about
Try to release the worry of those in the second and third groups
3. Review your lifestyle
Are you taking on too much?
Are there things you are doing which could be handed over to someone else?
Can you do things in a more leisurely way?
Do you have an understanding of stress management?
To act on the answer to these questions, you may need to categorize things you are trying to achieve and sort out your life
This will help to release pressure than can come from trying to do everything at once
Remember to seek health and support when you need it:
It is okay to ask for professional help
It is important to know that you can get help as soon as possible, and that you deserve to get better
The first person to approach is your family doctor, they can give advice about treatment, and may refer you to another local professional
