All Stressed Out And Ready To Strangle Someone?

Has your boss been acting up, the bank manager been difficult, the baby been screaming half the night and your mother-in-law been her usual undiplomatic self?
BEFORE YOU EXPLODE, here are some suggestions on how you can
Feel Better In Ten Minutes

GET MOVING! Go for a short run or walk - ten minutes will be enough to improve your circulation and lower your tension levels.

GET CLEANING! When you're feeling down, the sight of an untidy kitchen or unmade bed is bound to make you feel worse. Get down and do the dishes, make that bed - you will feel better afterwards.

MAKE THAT CALL! Phone someone who always makes you feel good. A friend, or an old acquaintance who always liked you more than vice versa. Guaranteed to be good for the ego.

BUY A MAGAZINE! This always feels like a treat, especially if it is one you don't usually buy. Go somewhere quiet and take some time out to page through.

PUT YOUR FOOT DOWN! Phone your mother-in-law and tell her that you will not be able to take her shopping tomorrow - maybe on the weekend. Saying NO is an instant feel-good exercise.

HAVE A BATH! A relaxing bath by candlelight does wonders for a bruised spirit and body. Gentle, soothing music could add to the atmosphere.

TAKE A MULTIVIT! Very often exhaustion is the result of vitamin and mineral shortages. Take a multivitamin and see whether you might not feel better very quickly.

BUY SOMETHING FRESH! Go out and buy fresh fruit or fresh flowers. One is good for the body, the other for the soul.

HAVE A GOOD CRY! There is nothing quite like a bit of a weep to make you feel better. Crying actually increases you serotonin levels, like eating chocolate does, but crying is better for your waistline. :-)

MAKE THAT APPOINTMENT! Whether it is with a doctor, a therapist, a gym instructor, an aromatherapist or with the employment agency - you know what you need to do. Just do it. It will make you feel better.

LET IT GO! Whether it is sibling rivalry, a feud with your uncle, a grievance that you're nursing about you spouse, or a desire to stick pins into a doll resembling your ex-husband's new wife :-) , let it go. Grudges that you harbour only have a destructive effect on you and it stops you from growing. Walk away from them. Remember the best revenge is Feeling Happy and Looking Good!
