The stresses and strains of everyday living can all too often get the better of us, leaving us feeling without energy, grumpy and really not enjoying life.

We develop habits that help us get through the day – habits by their very nature become unconscious behaviours which can keep us reacting in ways which may not be appropriate to the people or the situations we are faced with – ultimately stressing us out.

Making decisions to change and be less stressed, sometimes the head rules and sometimes the heart and quite often they are not in agreement, causing even more emotional turmoil. As the cartoon shows, how often do we say YES to other people and so end up saying NO to ourselves. Ouch…

So if you are looking to find different ways to reach Beyond, change your habitual responses and make some different choices that:

Transform your stress to give you energy

Recharge your batteries – anytime and anywhere

Boost your resilience to challenges and change

“Worry” less and smile more
