One of the most frequently heard expressions today is “I’m stressed”. Stress is an inevitable part of modern-day living, however, most stress can be reduced considerably and even eliminated. Here are some considerations when contemplating stress in your life, and suggestions for reducing it:

A belated “Happy New Year” to you all!
Whether you visited my site through an interest in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, or Yoga Relaxation and Mindfulness, you are very welcome and I hope this site serves to encourage and inspire.
So how do you view January? As a chilly month in the depths of winter, or as the opportunity to renew, replenish and refresh?
If you are thinking about CBT, then the chances are you are not feeling your happiest and so this month may well be the former. Winter has the effect of keeping us closed in, both in terms of where we are physically, and our emotional and psychological Selves as well. It is all too easy to become enmeshed in any negative feelings. This time of year encourages us to hibernate and take stock. When we are feeling positive and mentally strong, this is good for us. However, if we are feeling down or dejected, having too much opportunity to contemplate our woes is rarely beneficial.
If you are interested in yoga, then your interpretation of January may be entirely different. This is because, for a yogi, every day is a new beginning, bringing with it the opportunity to grow and develop all aspects of our Self. From respecting our physical body when we eat and drink healthily, exercise regularly and relax properly, to improving mental strength and focus through mindfulness, meditation and resilience, we yogis seek to improve and develop through every day of our lives.
So how do we move from viewing January as a depressing month, to seeing it as an opportunity to move forward and develop?
It is all a matter of perspective. Firstly consider what it is that is holding you back and causing you to feel whatever negative feelings you have. Then decide if you feel strong enough to tackle these issues on your own. Can you call on support from people around you? Do you want to tackle your issues at all? Or is fear of the unknown holding you back? It takes a brave person to look their life squarely in the face and admit there is a problem!
