Life in London is increasingly full of stress. Many of us rush from home to work and back again and have to fit in family time, gym, social life with friends, paperwork, and housework into our limited free time. We are over-worked and tired out. We are desperately concerned about the state of the world, the environment, the economy. Just look at the stressed and anxious faces of people on the tube in the early morning!

I recently published an article on methods of dealing with stress. The article looks at what causes stress and what effects it produces in our bodies and our minds. It also offers some ways of working to improve stress levels, using ‘mindfulness’ technique. Mindfulness – which is essentially conscious breathing and awareness of thoughts and feelings – is a great tool for regaining our calm and our sense of centre. It can also work well alongside counselling.
