For Your Information


REDUCE STRESS

Recognize the things that upset you. If something is increasing your stress, ask yourself, “Is there anything I can do to change the situation?” If there is, figure out what you can do. If not, find ways to accept this lack of control. Important: Be sure to identify what really is the problem. For example, you may feel that the problem is work overload, but perhaps the real problem is your inability to say “no.”

COUPLE CARE

Ask for support. Your partner is not a “mind reader.” Let your partner know how you want to be supported.

BETTER SLEEP TIPS

  • Try to relax before bedtime. Take a walk, read a book, or take a warm bath.
  • Unwind early in the evening. Try to deal with worries and distractions several hours before bedtime. Do work-related activities early in the evening.
  • Develop a sleep ritual. Doing the same things each night just before bed signals your
    body to settle down for the night.
