Stress is like dark chocolate. A little of it won’t kill you. In fact, small blocks here and there can be good for you, or at least give you a reason to get out of bed in the morning. But chronic and severe stress can …

  1. I liked the topic, but some of the relievers don’t apply to me, but as i said before, the topic was a nice one, and i assume it will help.

  2. Great advice. Having mitigated as much stress as possible (don’t sweat the small stuff) you still need some stress to function.

    I found a great way to “de-compress” after stress – by using a hypnosis relaxation CD. It’s great and I almost always fall asleep after listening to it.

    I got mine from a person called Andrew Johnson , and I see he now does a free version for download. http://www.andrewjohnson.co.uk

  3. I LOVE IT! How often we like to think we know it all, or have to take on the whole world in order to feel important. Limitations are part of what make us who we are, and must accept ourselved for being human, and give into our necessities for rest. Great article!

  4. Hi,
    Great site!!!!! Good health is very important with the high cost of medical coverage. We need to have a healther lifestyle by taking care of our health eating and exercising and also avoiding stress. I am a cancer survivor and I know. Our health is our greatest asset. Keep up the Good Work!!!!!

  5. i really like this article and will be recommending it on my school blog. thanks!

  6. this is the entry in which i recommended this article. :]

  7. I love this article. The thing that I love most is the first tip. Simplify. Being a busy mom, I tend to forget the more “important” things in life. I am always busy with work, errands, kids and chores. I do not have time for myself and I am not able to spend quality time with my family. I will create a list and try to simplify my life. Thanks for the tip!

  8. I find when I make my daily list, usually while I have my coffee!!, whilst I clean up the kitchen from the night before, I realize I have already made a phone call or unloaded the dishwasher or maybe even started a load of laundry!! So I add these to my list and immediately check them off!! So I have a little positive start to my day. We actually do more each day than we realize (especially with kids). And what is wrong with a little recognition to that!! Even if I hit a brick wall and seem to get nothing done the rest of the day, I can look back at my list, as good as my intentions were, I actually did get some things finished AND checked off!!
