Learn How To Win Your Battle With Stress

The Motivation Behind This Series

Based On Experience

A few years ago I had a health scare which I describe as a near miss. I knew in that moment that if I didn't do something to drastically change things I could be heading for trouble. Today I feel happier and healthier than I've ever done. 

The posts in this series start with what I learned through this experience. I have tested or use each one of the suggestions made in this series.


I've also done the research to back up my recommendations. Wherever possible I have compared my experiences with published evidence. 

Important Disclaimer

I am not a psychologist or medical doctor. Long-term chronic stress can have serious health impacts — as my own experience demonstrates. If you feel that your stress is affecting your health, please refer to your local healthcare provider.
