Different Ways to Communicate Effectively… Verbal, Written, Oral, Face-to-Face, Nonverbal, Physical, Paralanguage and Visual
- If you personally are prone to anxiety or depression, then you actively need to build up a network of supportive people around you.

- We don’t talk about it, but there is no harm if you do
- People taking their life when they feel there is no way out
- Celebrate all the successes no matter how big or small they are
- I’ve found its so important to have “something” I do for me… once a week I try to have a coffee date with a friend & that’s my me time, download. It’s great if they are in business & you can download together then just chat..
- Being sad, angry, hurt is ok. There is nothing wrong with those emotions.
- You never say the words I know exactly how you’re feeling, because it’s impossible to know how someone is feeling a nicer way to say this would be to say I can only imagine what you were going through at the moment.

- Avoid alcohol around stress. Have to look carefully at problem and booze interferes.
