Stress... Don't let it get to you.

Stress. It's everywhere. On a daily basis, we all run into something or other that raises our blood pressure, makes us have a mini panic attack, or just plain pisses us off.

Don't worry, though, you're not alone.

Stress is nothing more than a socially acceptable form of mental illness. --Richard Carlson

Because, honestly:

There's never enough time to do all the nothing you want. --Bill Watterson, Calvin and Hobbes

Our stress does not have to consume us, though.

There is more to life than increasing its speed. --Mohandas K. Gandhi

We lose ourselves in the river of life, and it sweeps us away before we have the chance to kick to the surface.

For fast-acting relief, try slowing down. --Lily Tomlin

The time to relax is when you don't have time for it. --Attributed to both Jim Goodwin and Sydney J. Harris

After all...

Is everything as urgent as your stress would imply? --Carrie Latet

Remember folks...

The man who doesn't relax and hoot a few hoots voluntarily, now and then, is in great danger of hooting hoots and standing on his head for the edification of the pathologist and trained nurse, a little later on. --Elbert Hubbard

Stress is going to happen. Don't let it rule and/or ruin your life.

    A good start for me to de-stress was not to try to be the guy who "takes no crap from anyone". EVERYONE is going to take some crap, professionally or personally, and accepting that and learning to deal with it will cut a lot of stress out.

  6. Seems like stress is the theme for me this week; Psych class on Monday we watched a video on stress and the physiological affects it has on us,on Tuesday I come home to my mom who unloads the stress of the world on me, the week I'm trying to escape stress it seems like stress is stalking me, screaming in my face "Look! I'm right here! You can't get rid of me!" Good thing there is such a thing as good stress. Thanks for your post Chris
