How Does One Break the Cycle of Stress in Ten Easy Steps?

Stress Busters 

 Stress busters can certainly come in handy when one is feeling like crawling up the wall.

Yesterday, I was working on overload, which I seem to be doing a lot of these days. To make a long story short, the printer broke down, I couldn’t get business cards printed out, and I was behind on book marketing. In response, I’ve developed a stress busting technique, called ten easy stress busters.

1. Make a list every night of what is to be accomplished the next day. This is at the top of my list of stress busters.

2. Ask someone to help when you cannot do everything by yourself.

3. Ask opinions with in doubt about important decisions. My financial advisor gets a call from me when I have to make an important money decision. This is a critical stress buster.

4. Take a day off now and then. When I was taking care of my mother, my favorite of all the stress busters was to take one weekend a month at Pere Marquette Park in Illinois.

5. Pray a lot. This one is one of my favorite stress busters.

6. Feel free to cy and beat pillows. This one is also at the top of my list of stress busters.

7. Laugh more often. Norman Cousins wrote a book called “Laughter is the Best Medicine.” He cured himself of chronic connective tissue problems when he sequestered himself in a hotel room for two weeks and watched endless rounds of comic videos.

8. Get proper sleep. Fatigue adds to worry and inability to handle life challengers.

9. Eat a good diet. An unhealthy diet can lead to chronic health concerns.

10. Call a friend when the going gets rough.
