- Take physical exercise, even if it's only walking. Our physical health affects how we experience stress.

- Don't be tempted to work longer and longer hours. Try to work more effectively. Tiredness increases stress.

- Break up Our work into smaller chunks. Complete a job before we start the next one. The satisfaction of seeing a job done reduced stress.

- Make an effort to keep up outside interests. If the only thing left in our life is our work, our worries will get out of proportion.

- Pay attention to our social life. Talking to people who care about us is an important safety valve.

- Don't lose self confidence. People in work always under-rate their knowledge and skills. Sometimes it's only when they lose their job that they discover exactly how much they know!

- Take regular breaks from work, especially if we work at a screen or are in long meetings. We work BETTER if we take a short break every 20-30 minutes and if we do take a break over lunch.

- Take time for our family if we have one. Close emotional relationships - particularly with partners, parents & children - suffer greatly when someone is stressed.

- Stress isn't a guilty secret. See how our company can help. Good companies want us to work at optimum levels....and they have a duty of care to our physical and mental health. Around 40% of large companies now have stress care programmes.

- Set self targets for these areas; e.g. at least one walk a day; going to a club once a week. We'll feel a greater sense of control over our life.

- FINALLY - Stress can have alarming symptoms. Some of these symptoms can also be caused by physical conditions. If in doubt, consult doctor.

The steps that you listed are great for managing stress on the personal front
Organization's role in managing stress at the work place is equally important apart from stress care programs ,the use of organizational counseling and personal coaching could be important for understanding the stressors in the workplace and make changes suitably in the organizational environment .
Behavioral studies of the roles held is also important for designing stress management programs

Dear friends,
Namaskar. The maladaptive stress reactions may be severe or mild. Here are some common maladative stress reactions like anger, anxiety, constipation, depression, diarrhea, fatigue, frustration, forgetfulness, headaches, hypertension, hyperactivity, insomnia, inattentiveness, irritability, loss of appetite, muscle tension, over eating, rapid heart beat, poor concentration, and restlessness etc.
Has anybody used these tips and is relieved of these maladaptive reactions? To what extent?

Dear Taruna,
My simplest formula to eliminate stress is:
Health Power=f(RxHT/UT)
HT=Healthy Thoughts and
UT=Unhealthy Thoughts.
So the higher the ratio the less is the stress. Do you or any one have or has any doubt?

Dear Swapna,
There are now train loads of tips, practices and consultants on stress management but situation continues to worsen. Uncertainty to find out a way out to manage stress is as uncertain as answer to evry day question "what to do?" Am I right?
