- How does it affect you?
- How does it affect your family and people around you?
Write it down.

- Breathe gently and slowly and imagine your breath is following from your heart,
- While you breathe, recall a positive experience or a feeling
- Do this for few minutes.
- Reach out to your heart – consult with your heart and ask what will help relieve the stress that you feel
Write it in your journal.
