Managing Work Life Balance

Our Well Being Club meets again on 25th May, 10.15 - 11.45 and this month we're looking at Work Life Balance.  How do we manage to balance our work commitments with the things we really want to do!  I guess the first stage is to be aware of what we really want to be doing!  Setting priorities is always a good idea.  When we know what's important to us we can aim to make sure it happens.  Is it really as easy as this?  Well life does have a tendancy to get in the way!  Please join us for these discussions and our usual practise of relaxation and gentle exercise to music.

Best wishes Janet

Managing our stress - tips from the Well Being CLub

Hi,  We had another really good meeting of the Well Being Club with lots of good ideas!  Many thanks to those women who came along and shared their thoughts and feelings.  We were talking about managing stress and how sometimes sleeplessness is a problem.  I mentioned the five point plan that has worked for my children, I'm sure it's equally valid for adults too! 
1.  Get into a comfortable postiion.
2.  Close your eyes. 
3. Keep really still. 
4.  Listen to your breathing. 
5.  Count how long your breath is - both in and out.

Does anyone else have any tips for us either for sleeping, relaxing or managing stress?
