How to overcome negative thinking:

How to manage your stress:

  • Exercise – Exercise has been proven to have a beneficial effect on a person’s mental and physical state. For many people, exercise is an extremely effective stress buster.
  • Assertiveness – Don’t say yes to everything. If you can’t do something well or if something is not your responsibility, try to seek ways of not agreeing to do them.
  • Nutrition – Eat plenty of fruit and vegetables. Try to have a healthy and balanced diet.
  • Time – Make sure you set aside some time each day just for yourself. Use that time to organise your life, relax and pursue your own interests.
  • Breathing – There are some effective breathing techniques that will slow down your system and help you relax.
  • Talk – Talk to family, friends, work colleagues, your boss or a counsellor. Express your thoughts and worries.
  • Seek professional help – If the stress is affecting the way you function, see your doctor. Heightened stress for prolonged periods can be bad for your physical and mental health.
  • Relaxation techniques – Talking to counsellors, meditation, massage and yoga have been known to greatly help people with stress.

How to improve your self-esteem:

  • List 10 strengths (what you are good at or what others have said about you)
  • Set realistic expectations
  • Set aside perfection and reflect upon your accomplishments
  • Explore yourself and open up to new things and people
  • Be willing to adjust your own self-image
  • Stop comparing yourself to others
  • Dress well
  • Practice good posture
  • Compliment other people
  • Speak up
  • Be your own person
  • Please yourself
  • Avoid negative people
