For Your Information


For a relationship to be successful, both partners must be willing to share and accept each other’s feelings. The ability to share feelings is essential to creating intimacy and openness in a relationship. Both “negative” and “positive” feelings need to be shared. For many, these are “emotional” skills that need to be learned.


To help ease stress at work, take some “time out” every day. Get away from your work activities. Relax in a peaceful setting or take a short walk. Even a 15-minute timeout has the ability to dissipate stress, energize you and make the rest of your workday more productive and enjoyable.


Use alcohol only in moderation and not before bedtime. Do not use alcohol to induce sleep. A nightcap can lull you to sleep, but alcohol typically produces light, unsettled sleep. Additionally, using alcohol to fall asleep could lead to dependency.
