7 Habits of Highly Stressed People

Stress is something our bodies are designed to cope with, it was never meant to be a permanent disposition. We are meant to go into ‘stress mode’ to handle a ‘dangerous’ situation and then come out of it. Truth is that most people remain in ‘stress mode’ and are now aspiring toward peace, tranquillity, happiness, nirvana, when actually happiness should be our ‘normal’ state.
Here are just a few habits of highly stressed people-you may recognise yourself doing one or more of these.

  1. They don’t know when to say ‘no’ or if they do, they feel guilty. They also thrive on doing too much, fingers in lots of pies and projects. This could also be where they get their self-worth and recognition from.
  2. Stressed people often have one major stressor in their life ( eg work, family/marital, health, personal progress/image) which then has a ripple effect on other areas if not dealt with
  3. Tend to be negative in their thinking, habits and have a limited view or outlook, but will usually deny their part to play in it.
  4. They may be too much of a perfectionist or have ‘high standards’  and find it hard to delegate, often saying “ If I want a good job done I will have to do it myself” or “no one does it like I do”  and finally saying to them self “ I may as well do it myself it’ll be quicker than showing someone”
  5. Find it hard to unwind and relax often impatient and fidgety and may even think “it’s not productive!”
  6. They may be ruminating; either stuck in the past; relationship, experience, trauma bereavement or anxious about the future or loss in the future; success, progression, money, family etc
  7. Consume quick convenience foods, and/or enjoy other stimulants, smoking a glass (or two, or more) of something-every night, leading to a habit and thus an addiction

This Month's Special Offer...

The 8th Celebration of African Wildlife & tribal Life

Leave UK Sunday 28th Sep 2014, last night in Kenya Sunday 5th Oct

This Month's Special Offer...

Stoke Park Club Members enjoy a generous £1,000 per couple saving on this amazing experience

When the great migration is in full flow, enjoy a week in Kenya's Masai Mara hosted by some of the most interesting wildlife experts around - including BBC 'Big Cat Diary' presenter, Jonathan Scott, award winning BBC cameraman Warren Samuels, three times published expert on East African birds, Dave Richards, wildlife sculptor Denis Mathews and award winning wildlife artist, Jonathan Truss. Each of our high profile speaker hosts will join you on at least one of your game drives; and each entertains on at least one evening with a pre-dinner illustrated talk.

Because this trip is run as "an event" rather than "just another holiday" a house party atmosphere prevails, making these very special & unique occasions all the more enjoyable and memorable. Your base is the renowned Little Governors Camp comprising just 16 luxury en suite safari tents around a vast marsh/water hole into which elephants and buffalo come daily, along with a myriad of colourful birds and dozens of different butterfly.

And here in the wilderness you'll have a comfy bed, flushing loo, hot water whenever you need it, and great home cooked food that would satisfy the appetite of a lion! There is no aircon, as although it gets up to 28/30 degrees in the heat of the day, in the evenings we sit out in shirtsleeves or perhaps a light cardigan for dinner under the thousands of twinkling stars, and by bedtime it is cool enough to sleep under just a duvet. There are no malarial mosquitos as we are at 5,000 feet, and hardly any insects.

That sounds just perfect doesn't it? Well it is - here are a couple of quotes from guests who have been -and returned with us. "We were so close to the lioness and three little cubs, we could feel their breath and the memory will last forever" Jane Turner;"your attention to detail is amazing - I like to complain to get a refund - but this time I can't. Well done!" Clive Travers

Do take a look at Jonathan Scott's introduction to the 8th Celebration of Wildlife on our website www.prestige-promotions.co.uk then click on Prestige Safari Club. Scroll down to the bottom of the page where you will find * our downloadable brochure with full details; * a link to Imogen Stubbs' article on one of our Celebration trips published in the Daily Telegraph; and * a short film of last year's Celebration with some nice comments at the end.

You are not tied in to flights when booking with us - you can use your frequent flier miles or your preferred travel professional. Our price of £4,990 per person for this thrilling experience is reduced in a onetime offer for Stoke Park Members to £4,490 saving £1,000 per couple for bookings before Thursday 22nd May 2014 strictly subject to availability at the time of your confirmation -

Ring Clive or Sue on 01442 879000 to chat it though and to reserve your places on this trip of a lifetime.
