Ruby Wax on Expresso

We recently had American actress, author and a campaigner for mental health, Ruby Wax in the Expresso studio. She came to speak on mindfulness and how we should be open in how we communicate with others, and of coarse the one thing we all deal with, stress!

Vast amounts of stress can eventually lead to mental illness which can and cause one’s body to actually get physically ill. As someone who suffers from mental illness, Ruby is adamant bout educating others about how to deal with it. Issues and pressure at work can cause chronic stress among the working class. Before she wrote a book, Ruby had been travelled on the road in the UK for a few years, because of her comedy show, which she had written about her mental illness, which always had people talking. She discovered from these shows that everybody at some point feels crazy and she helped them deal with it.

Ruby has said, “Part of our brain still functions as if it is hundreds of thousands of years ago and we haven’t yet learned to adjust our dials for the 21st century. Rather than going on bitching about the shortcomings of being human, I thought I’d find out what we can do about it and that’s how I came to write A Mindfulness Guide for the Frazzled.” She has described the state of ‘frazzled’ as not just being stressed, but actually stressing about stress.


Here are some healthy ways of dealing with stress

  • exercise
  • avoid smoking
  • get more sleep
  • avoid alcohol
  • get yourself a stress diary
  • avoid caffeine
