Optimism

Our attitude should be that of optimism.

Optimisim in sickness leads the way to recovery and optimism in health brings vibrancy. Optimism is the tendency to believe, expect or hope that things will turn out well or everything will be all right (Optimism therefore, is anchored on faith).

Linking optimism to the Divine is not an overstatement.
Optimism unanchored to Faith is difficult to sustain.

 

Advice:
When you observe some unusual changes in your body,  do not panic. If you are diagnosed for a condition,  relax. and Exercise OPTIMISM.

Can we keep Positive attitude when Stressed?

Sleep and Stress

Lack of sleep can contribute to stress. On the other hand, if you are stressed, you may not be able to get good sleep. Either way, if sleep is a problem, try these tips:

  • Establish a regular sleep schedule. Go to bed and get up at the same time every day.
  • Make sure your bed and surroundings are comfortable. Arrange the pillows so you can maintain a comfortable position.
  • Keep your bedroom dark and quiet.
  • Use your bedroom for sleeping only; don't work or watch TV in your bedroom.
  • Avoid napping too much during the day. At the same time, remember to balance activity with rest and recovery.
  • If you feel nervous or anxious, talk to your spouse, partner, or a trusted friend. Get your troubles off your mind.
  • Listen to relaxing music.
  • Do not take sleeping pills before talking to your doctor.
  • Take diuretics or "water pills" earlier, if possible, so you don't have to get up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom.
  • If you can't sleep, get up and do something relaxing until you feel tired. Don't stay in bed worrying about when you're going to fall asleep.
  • Avoid caffeine.
  • Maintain a regular exercise routine but don't exercise within two to three hours of bedtime.
