Taking the Distress out of Stress

When life has a good rhythm of work, time for family and friends, and time for oneself, then it is easy to write safe platitudes about how stressed people should go about de-stressing themselves. As a reminder of how easy it is to make up advice, I made these up: 
1.    Keep a good balance between time for work and time for your own life, and do not let these times spill over into each other.

2.    Make time for yourself, even if it means blocking off time in your diary, and make sure you spend the time wisely doing things that will bring you back into your best self, emotionally and physically.

Great advice, but have I been taking it in the last few weeks? No!
