Getting On With Life

Getting on With Life began in Victoria in 1997 with the purpose of providing divorce and grief support programs to individuals and companies in the local area. Subsequently other professional courses were developed and added in the areas of premarital and marriage enrichment as well as an in-depth self-development program for singles, Loving Choices.

Due to interest from government ministries and private organizations, stress and conflict management workshops were introduced over the past few years.

Getting on with Life has attempted to be responsive and flexible in meeting the needs and concerns of its clients and sees customer satisfaction as a key element to its success.


Simple modifications in posture, habits, thought, and behavior often go a long way toward reducing feelings of stress and tension. Here are eight simple things you can do immediately to help keep your stress level under control.
Watch for the next instance in which you find yourself becoming annoyed or angry at something trivial or unimportant, then practice letting go - make a conscious choice not to become angry or upset.
Breathe slowly and deeply.
Whenever you feel overwhelmed by stress, practice speaking more slowly than usual. You'll find that you think more clearly and react more reasonably to stressful situations.
Jump start an effective time management strategy. Choose one simple thing you have been putting off (e.g. returning a phone call, making a doctor's appointment) and do it immediately.
Get outdoors for a brief break. Our grandparents were right about the healing power of fresh air.
Drink plenty of water and eat small, nutritious snacks.
Do a quick posture check. Hold your head and shoulders upright and avoid stooping or slumping. Bad posture can lead to muscle tension, pain, and increased stress.
Plan something rewarding for the end of your stressful day, even if only a relaxing bath or half an hour with a good book.
