Stress Management-

This concept is coming up more these days. There are many ways to reduce stress right from meditation to listening good music. So, here are some nice tips I liked.

1) Knowing your strong points and weak points well,

2) Developing ability to get thru unexpected situations,

3) Positive Monologues,

4) Support groups (not like kitty parties)e.g.books,positive thoughts.

5) Not having too much expectations from partners,colleagues,friends.

I know, it is easy to say than to implement. Let us start practicing it. My best wishes.
