– Stressed? –

Stressed Spelled Backwards Equals D-e-s-s-e-r-t-s -Temple Hayes-

When we were kids we had so many structured “taking care “me time”. We had time at recess and physical education and time to draw and question and play with friends. As adults, we need to remember this reality and attempt to put it into perspective. Life is not interesting and motivating if we only work and have no play or ME time. If you take the words:
AccomplishMEnt
AchieveMEnt
TiME
MEmory
EmpowerMEnt

…they all share the word ME

ME time doesn’t have to be for long periods of time. In stress management we use to identify with all kinds of ideas that could help by keeping it simple:

A walk around the building at the office or hospital
Taking different roads to our work
Humorous gadgets for the workplace that we could use to tease coworkers or patients
Pets that give us love and energy
A movie day
Time near or at the water
Exercise
Blowing bubbles
Writing a note to someone you haven’t spoken to in awhile
Mend your heart
Forgive yourself
Take a dance class
Do Taebo
Watch a comedy
Look for a butterfly
Get out in Nature

Do something different every week even if it’s just buying something new at the grocery store.
Buy yourself a small gift or get something you’ve always wanted…lay it away if necessary. However, do not go out of your means……that adds stress.

Dolly Parton was once quoted as saying, “Get down off the…

Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds -Albert Einstein- Have you ever felt like a “button pusher”. If you are a clear thinker and you are assertive you can definitely push a few buttons. People at times are intimidated by originality. They like things in a box. If you are a great…
