Top Tips for Managing Stress: There are two important elements to managing stress. Awareness and responsibility. Firstly, we need to be aware of the impact that stress is having on us. Your body is the best compass you have for this. Listen to it and it will tell you. Then, once you are aware, take some degree of self-responsibility. Prescribe for yourself, plenty of time for self-care, rest and recovery.
