Releasing Stress In Small Ways

The one thing that virtually all people have in common is the stress of living in this modern age.  So much has changed in the last 25 years.  Yet all generations had to grow up and take on the responsibilities of raising a family, making a living and figuring out their place in this complicated world.

Stress comes from several sources.  Obviously, the first place most people think is work.  We think of work as a source of stress because it is a place where making a living is important to our well-being.  There are daily demands, deadlines and schedules to be met.  In addition, most of us have to deal with at least one difficult person during our workdays, which only compound the stress.

Are You A ‘Snooze Button’ Junkie?

One of our readers sent in a request… “How do I get up early in the morning without hitting the snooze button?”

I chuckled when reading this request because I can easily relate to this issue. I confess I too am a ‘snooze button’ junkie! I thought I had created a solution to this problem by putting my alarm clock across the room. My logic was that once I was up, I wouldn’t want to go back to bed…WRONG! I jump up, hit the snooze button and then gleefully jump right back in to my nice warm bed. And, I will do it more than once! I know it’s a crazy habit. Oh, and by the way, my clock is set 15 minutes ahead of the actual time in addition!
