A new stress relief plan....

I have been way over stressed lately - at work and at home.

At work there is just too much to do, too many people wanting it done - too many different ways and yesterday.

At home, I admit, it is my own fault. I try to do too much. Because there is soooo much I want to do.

But as I was stumbling for some work related info, I came across a stress management technique recommended in all the latest psychological journals (I wish I knew which specific journals so I could write them a letter of thanks...).

Anyway, try this 7-step stress reducer the next time you have having an especially frustrating day...it works...really...
1. Picture yourself near a stream in the mountains.

2. Birds are softly chirping in the cool mountain air.

3. No one knows your secret place.

4. You are in total seclusion from the hectic place called the world.

5. The soothing sound of a gentle waterfall fills the air with a cascade of serenity.

6. The water is crystal clear.

7. You can easily make out the face of the person you are holding under the water.

It got me smiling...how about you?

Great method, but what do you do if you have three people at work you would like to hold underwater?

I have been wondering that myself, Beach Bum...because where there's one asshole, there is usually two or three...

Maybe let a couple of good, trustworthy best friends into your secret place?

Remember, a friend will help you move, but a best friend will help you move a body:)
