What is Stress? Of course stress exists, but the word ‘stress’ itself is often applied incorrectly. Many people will use it when they have a temporary work overload, whereas in fact stress only occurs when a person perceives (over a prolonged period) that they have insufficient personal resources to cope with a given situation.
Stressed? We all have days when nothing seems to go right and when we are prone to make silly mistakes. However, when bad days turn into bad weeks, it is time to take stock and to reflect on why things are going wrong, seemingly everyday.
Last week, when walking by the sea, I paused to watch family members on holiday enjoying the summer sunshine. Whilst some small children rushed excitedly from one side of the boating lake to the other, and others were playing in the sand, adults often chatted distractedly into their mobile phones.

Birthdays can be times of reflection and questioning of oneself. If you are not driving yourself hard enough, then ask yourself the question “why not?” If stress in your life is wearing you down, then take action to find out how to avoid it, says Motivational Speaker, Carole Spiers.

Getting older happens to everybody and it should be seen as a new chapter in one’s life, says Motivational Speaker Carole Spiers.

Therefore, Motivational Speaker Carole Spiers says, it is important to learn how to be confident and direct in dealing with others and being able to say ‘no’ without giving offence.
