For Your Information


ANGER MANAGEMENT TIP

Before blowing your lid, count to ten. Counting to ten is an anger management tip that has worked for centuries. The Roman poet Horace (65 – 8 BC) said, “When angry, count ten before you speak; if very angry, one hundred.” Counting to ten helps you step back from an anger-provoking situation, buys time for you to examine the problem and decide on an effective, rational way to express your anger.

EXERCISE YOUR BRAIN

Walking or other aerobic exercise can do more than improve your physical fitness. Recent research shows that walking can enhance your brain function too. The explanation: During exercise, the heart pumps more blood to the brain. Delivering more blood means more oxygen and nutrients are delivered to the brain, which are good for brain cells and make the brain healthier. The vessels that deliver the nutrients also branch out and become more effective.

BETTER FAMILY LIFE

Encourage family activities. A sense of belonging is developed by doing things together, such as social activities as well as household chores.
