This is what doctors advise if stress is part of your life. Think about why you are stressed – writing down the causes can help you decide what to do.

It is important to get the right work-life balance as stress can cause depression in the longer term. Avoid prescription drugs to treat stress as they can be highly addictive and difficult to stop once started.

Try to allow yourself some personal time like going to the gym or visiting a wellness spa. Discuss your situation with trusted friends and relax before bedtime through reading, massage or listening to soothing music.
