Help from JK
Some tips from John Kirwan that I've found very helpful for reducing stress. Simple but effective.
postpone major life changes
If you are feeling stressed or anxious, it's probably not a good time to move house or change jobs. Major changes are best made when you are feeling better.
do the things you enjoy
Plan some regular time for activities you usually enjoy. You might find it takes a while for the positive feelings to return, so it is important to keep doing the activities regularly.
control your workload
Working long hours and taking on major work-related responsibilities can take over your life and contribute to depression. Make sure you have enough time to do the things you enjoy, and if necessary make changes to your work habits.
