For Your Information


Stress Relief at Work

To relieve stress, try deep breathing. Find a quiet place and seat yourself comfortably. Close your eyes and breathe in slowly. Let the breath out for a count of 5 to 10 seconds. Repeat ten cycles any time you feel tense. Your tension will ebb.

To Improve Your Marriage

Make your marriage a priority. The art of relating is a never-ending process. It doesn't come naturally and has to be learned. Don't avoid relationship challenges. Face them head on. When something isn't working in your relationship, discuss it, make a plan and agree how you will both handle the situation. Make adjustments when needed.

Exercise Your Mind

Maintaining a regular exercise program keeps your brain healthy, say researchers. Cardiovascular fitness helps the brain stay young by increasing the growth of new blood vessels that feed the brain and encouraging more connections between brain cells, which means more processing power. Studies show that just 15 to 20 minutes of moderate activity, such as walking three times a week, is enough to produce the benefit.
