November is Stress Awareness month so it’s a great time to look at how and where we can reduce the harmful effects of both physical and emotional stress on our bodies and minds. We’ll never be completely free from stressful events, situations and people, but what we can do is find ways to live with these stresses so we don’t feel so knocked off course by them and to maintain inner composure. I’m a great one for looking cool and calm on the surface – even Zen-like, I was once told! – yet I often feel like the proverbial swan: graceful on top yet underneath kicking like mad to stay afloat.

A study from the University of Singapore has discovered that regular tea drinkers have better organised brain regions (and therefore healthier cognitive function) than those who avoid it. Now the researchers are looking to find out whether tea can reduce cognitive decline. SNIFF SOME ZINGY LEMONS TO FEEL THIN! Feeling negative about how you look? Go and sniff a lemon! It sounds strange, but research from the University of Sussex has connected certain smells with feelings about body image. While lemon scents make people feel thinner and lighter, vanilla fragrances left them feeling thicker and heavier. Something to keep in mind when you choose your next scented candle!

bounce back stronger!

RESILIENCE IS THE ability to adapt positively to significant adversity, trauma, threat, or a high-stress situation. However, it does not mean we will not feel distress – this would be unnatural. It’s about having a natural emotional response and then, in due course, bouncing back. How long it takes to recover depends on the individual and the circumstances. There is no right or wrong. Research shows that we often overestimate the effects of situations and underestimate how quickly we are able to adapt to them. Resilience is the ability to bounce back to the same level of happiness or life satisfaction as before the traumatic event. But we also have the ability to bounce up to a higher level of happiness, known as Post Traumatic Growth (PTG). If you have experienced a…
