The Basics: A Solid Platform

A fundamental, common sense platform for dealing with stress and change involves taking care of your physical needs first. That includes -

  • proper sleep
  • healthy eating
  • regular exercise
  • getting out into nature
  • meditation

You can't think when you're over tired, hungry or bogged down in a stuffy place. Sometimes, getting down to the basics just may jumpstart your imagination and problem solving ability. There may be a need for a "break down - break through" process. Looking at and being willing to change old habits that no longer work for you takes insight and courage. I call it "doing The Work." Developing strategies and action plans often produce results in productivity, ability to cope and mental (and physical) health.

If you feel like your life is out of control, you can regain control. Part of the tool kit involves a series of calming exercises. These techniques help to ground you in a state of clarity from which you may discover healthy choices and develop positive habits. Tapping therapy (EFT) is a profoundly effective tool that may free you from long held emotional and psychological blocks. With stress management counselling you are able to see what your options are and make informed, sustainable decisions.

There are always choices available to you, even if you are not aware of them. Challenges may become opportunities with unexpected solutions and new discoveries. At Counselling for the Health of It, Helena Green offers stress management counselling to help you cope while you regain balance and control in your life. You might also want to check out some of her published writing called Ramblings of an Old Flower Child in Synergy Magazine. Take the first step to finding out about sustainable stress management strategies; reach out for help and call.
