Newsletter 70 : April/May 2013
Welcome to the April/May edition of In Equilibrium
Maybe the advantage of an early Easter (or even a wicked Winter) is that we can look forward optimistically to the spring and summer months and are grateful for each positive sign that any better weather brings.
We hope you will also find a fair amount of optimism in the latest edition of In Equilibrium which includes :
- A practical stress tip for a more organised life
- An Ask the Expert Question and Answer which helps a reader who is looking to reduce their blood pressure
- Some useful resources for the areas of Mental Health Awareness and Bullying at Work
- News of a pleasant way to boost your concentration at work and even finish that lingering task

Ask The Expert
We answer a question from a reader who has requested some lifestyle tips to help reduce their blood pressure.
There’s a poster from the World Health Organisation in my staffroom which states “Under Pressure? Cut your risk of heart attack and stroke – control your blood pressure”. I know my blood pressure errs on the high side, although not at a level where I have to take medication, but the poster’s made me think and I wondered if you could offer any lifestyle tips which may help me reduce it myself without any medical intervention?
In Equilibrium trainer Dr David Mason Brown, who has helped many people reduce their stress levels and boost their health and wellbeing, suggests some practical steps you can take to reduce your blood pressure. Read his answer here …
