KEEP­ING QUIET?

Women's Health Australia - - LIFE ETC -

Con­sider pick­ing up a pen to help you cope. The Amer­i­can Psy­cho­log­i­cal As­so­ci­a­tion found that ex­pres­sive writ­ing (where you rant not only about events, but how they made you feel) low­ers stress and helps you make changes off the page. An­other way to find bal­ance? Prac­tise a kind of mind­ful daily hon­esty, sug­gests Paul Wilkes, au­thor of The Art of Con­fes­sion. “Be­fore go­ing to bed, ask your­self: ‘When was I the best person to­day? Let me do more of that to­mor­row. When was I the worst person to­day? Let me not do that to­mor­row.’”
