How to reduce stress this silly season!
Dec 11, 2018
Stress is the body’s way of dealing with pressure and can come in many forms, physical, chemical and emotional. Stress is a normal part of life and at times can serve a useful purpose but if it becomes long-term, or you can control it, it can seriously interfere with your life, your health, your work, and your family life. Major life events (a death in the family or divorce for example) or routine stress relating to the demands of every day life put people under pressure.
Local life coach and nutritionist, Rachel Jakobi helps people manage stress around relationships particularly by encouraging people to find out what is causing their stress, helping them to release any emotional stress and designing strategies to manage stress going forward. Rachel also supports and promotes clean living including organic, low chemical, minimally processed food, non and low-toxic cleaning and beauty products; products that don’t put stress on the environment. “I’ve loved to cook since I was a kid and never really enjoyed processed foods. I’ve also always been interested in the way the mind works,” says Rachel. “I’m now able to combine my interests by helping people to look after their body and mind.”
5 tips to lessen relationship stress
Rachel offers these tips to anyone affected by stress in their relationships:
- Know yourself and communicate your needs
- Give what you can without keeping score
- Be conscious regularly of the way your love feels in your body
- Connect physically – whether it be warm embraces, tickles, strokes and kisses or more;
- Give the other person the benefit of the doubt, trust that they are doing the best that they know how to.
