Fight the Big S

I dunno if it is stress, but my eyes are strained lately. The fact that my desk is overloaded with manuscripts to read and materials to edit, you bet I am so tired especially in the afternoons after work.

But let me share to you a few tips to fight STRESS. These are really simple and healthy tips, one that you can always effortlessly do, and you don't know, is fighting the Big S.

1. Eat a healthy diet. You can never go wrong with a healthy diet. In the mornings, eat plenty, at lunch, eat moderately, and eat a few during dinner. Be sure to get yourself proper helpings of carbo, protein and vitamins.

2. Exercise. Yes, i am guilty here. It's because I always do not have time for one. Uh-oh, ok, excuses. The truth is, I am lazy whenever doing physical exercises is concerned. But hey, doing a daily routine of warm-ups and stretches is sure a de-stresser. You're lazy too? Walk! Just walk a few rounds in your subdivision, in your street, and to make it more sophisticated, walk through the mall. Just walk, never mind the temptation surrounding you.

3. Give yourself time to relax. Get yourself some time to relax, and by getting a power nap during lunch breaks, you get to relax the brain and the eyes. Add some music too, they help clear the mind and soothe the neurons raging in your brain.

4. Drink lots of water. Water sure refreshes, so get yourself lots of liquid as much as you can.

5. Finally, keep a positive attitude - ALL THE TIME. Even if there are monster supervisors, managers or office mates around you, remember to always think positive. A positive aura is sure infectious.

i cannot disagree with your anti-stress tips. but to add more, i recharge myself by spending quality time with my son. his giggles and stories about anything are enough to pacify my usual restless mind + body. =)
