How do you fight stress and anxiety?

Advantages: sharing coping strategies may help
Disadvantages: symptoms may be easier to treat than the cause

Stress seems to be a modern epidemic. It’s somehow ironic that as the standard of living has improved in material terms in the West, stress has risen to alarming proportions. We may no longer be wondering if we’ll be bombed to smithereens in the Blitz o ...

My experiences of how I fight stress and anxiety

Advantages: Helps keep us safe in times of danger can be managed and controlled
Disadvantages: Frightening if we don't know what is happening to us

Advantages: Anxiety is nature's way of telling you not to take things so seriously
Disadvantages: Stress is the price of not heeding nature's hint

The best way to stave off stress and anxiety, I find, is not to worry about them. Easier said than done, you may be thinking, and indeed it is, but that’s only one of the reasons why I’m saying it. As I grow older I find myself increasingly able to ...

Review of How do you fight stress and anxiety?

Tesco v Tisserand in the battle for Emmas heart and mind!

Advantages: Better quality of life, less health problems, calmer sense of well-being
Disadvantages: You should never just 'cope' with stress and anxiety.

I find the category title interesting and somewhat misleading, stress and anxiety can be quite separate things and the two don’t necessarily go together. I've recently written a review about a book call 'Overcoming Anxiety and Depression (shameless plu ...
