Catherine, thanks for sharing these fantastic tips and resources, it is really a packed post!

What I like the most about it is that you said in your opening paragraph that "stress is a normal part of life". I like that as, once we accept that, then we can learn how to reduce and manage it.

It is the same with change management, once you get people to accept change and resistance (lol!), then, it gets easier because you can plan your approach.

And, I like that about your post, thank you!

Thank you everyone for your comments, as most of you have mentioned it’s about balance. Stress is a part of life but stress overload in one area of your life will cause the balance to tilt and therefore affect all the other areas of your life. No one makes it through life completely stress free and let’s be honest you wouldn't want too. We all need good stress, we need to be challenged mentally, physically and emotionally, and this gives spice to our lives, its how we learn and evolve.

Finding the right amount of stress in your life is like finding the right tension in a guitar string, too much tension and the string breaks, too little tension and there is no music. The goal is to be able to play and hear the music without breaking the strings.

Nice post. Most people don't realize the stress that are building within them until things become too late and because business owners often work hard to strive only the best for our businesses, we often forget the need to have a proper lifestyle to keep stress levels at bay.

Thank you for your comment Wayne, its very important for business owners (indeed all those in business regardless of the industry) to be mindful of a proper lifestyle and to try and create a good life/work balance.

Hi Catherine, wonderful and very important reminder to us all. I have to admit I was guilty of very bad work/life management prior to Xmas and it was starting to take a toll. I am glad to report that it is something I now have under control and am feeling all the better (& more effective) for it. Thanks so much for the great tips. UP TIPP! Cheers, Niall

I'm glad to hear that your work/life balance is now under better control, be aware of where you are now so that you can feel and readjust should the balance tilt again. Thank you for the comment and kind words.
