5 ways to de-stress your life
by Marcia Francois

To a certain extent, stress works for us. And then when we reach that point. The point where you're so fraught with nerves, you literally just snap at the slightest thing.

For some of us, it only happens as we approach the end of a long year without a holiday but for others, it's like they're permanently frazzled.

The key is to incorporate enough of these stress busters into your daily routine so you de-stress regularly.

Here are some ideas to de-stress, mostly frugal!

1. Exercise.
You can do anything from walking or running, to working out at the gym. From personal experience, I can tell you that a boxing class is a great stress reliever!

2. Get enough sleep
Research shows that most people need between 7 and 8 hours' sleep every night. When you don't get enough sleep, you get crabby and everything irritates you ;)

3. Learn to say "no"
Many people are stressed because of built-up resentment due to their inability or unwillingness to say NO.

4. Practise self-care
This is anything from taking a bubble bath to getting a manicure or massage. The main thing is to do something for YOU on at least a weekly basis.

5. Use your support system regularly.
When you feel overwhelmed or frazzled, call a friend, family member or colleague, either just to talk or to help you!

Now, put one or all of these ideas into practice for better mental health and ultimately increased productivity!

Have a stress-free week!
