KEEP­ING QUIET? HERE’S HOW TO COPE

Women's Health (UK) - - STRONG MIND -

Con­sider pick­ing up a pen or pen­cil. 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 to do that to­mor­row.”’
