Dealing with Stress

By Nikki Willhite



Manage your stress, or it will cost you a lot of money, if not your life.


Today's society is very fast paced. I live in a city where half the year people go to work in the dark, and drive home in the dark.


In other areas, people spend hours in their cars driving to work, seeing very little of their families during the week.


Many have jobs that are both physically, mentally, or emotionally draining. To lose a job, and miss one paycheck, can often be financially devastating for a family. The fear of it happening alone can lead to anxiety.


Is it any wonder that "Simple Living" has become a subject of great interest to many people?


Stress manifests itself with both physical and mental health problems. Sometimes lines can be crossed that change your life for years, if not forever.


I think we've all read the articles about being efficient. You are in the car with your children on the way to your son's soccer practice. When you stop at the light, you should re-tie all the children's shoelaces, plan your dinner menu for next week, and freshen your make-up. Right!


Thank carefully before you begin living your life as an efficiency role model. Too much multi-tasking leads to stress.


Perhaps it would be wise to think of more ways of relaxing while waiting at that stoplight.


If you are so busy that you don't have time to get everything done, you might want to look a little closer at all you are trying to do. Perhaps you are trying to do too much. Sometimes you have to let things go.


You can open a can for dinner once in awhile. You can let the dust accumulate in your house. You can even wear a dirty sweatshirt. It won't kill you. Stress will.
