Wall Street Bail Out Was A Go… A little Less Stressed?

Well the Congress has gone ahead and done it. They passed the $700+ Billion rescue package for wall street, thus averting us from falling over the cliff of rapidly collapsing credit which would have caused financial problems throughout all sectors of society that rely on credit to keep their lives going and their businesses running smoothly. I do have a friend who has a business who was getting worried because the credit was drying up and she relied heavily on it to run her business, as do thousands of other businesses in the country.

With that said, what does the average taxpayer get out of it, because that is who is paying for it? Well to bring it back to the topic of stress management tips, they say that humor is a great way to relieve stress, so here is something I found on the web that should help because laughter is the best medicine.

As they say, you can get busy laughing, or get busy crying…. or something like that…

Now where is that Easy Button?

How Women Can Relieve Stress

Stress in men and women create different effects. Therefore women should really focus on managing their stress that is most supportive for them. Here are some tips for women to help them manage their stress.
1 Eliminate The Things That Are Not The Most Supportive Of You
It seems that people are always asking women (especially mothers!) to help with group projects like volunteering for every club activity. While many of these activities can be fulfilling, they can add up to a significant amount of stress just by filling your schedule to the brim. While it can be hard to say no sometimes, it’s crucial to your health and emotional well-being that you keep in mind that saying yes to everything means saying no to things that are supportive of you: time alone, hobbies, and other self-supportive activities. To reduce the level of daily stress, women need to create more balance in their lives. Remember, if it is honestly good for you, it will be good for everyone around you who is involved in your life.
2 Change Your Perspective on Your Life Experiences
Much of your experience with stress can be eliminated with a change in the way we look at things. This may sound too good to be true, but it isn’t! Altering the way you conceptualize the events you find stressful (viewing them without judgment “It is what it is”, for example) can actually make them feel less threatening and stressful. When you don’t perceive a situation as a threat (not viewing the situation through fear), your body’s stress response is deactivated more quickly (or doesn’t get triggered in the first place), and you’re more able to avoid the effects of chronic stress.
3 Have Some Quick Stress Diffusers in Your Toolbox

Because you can’t eliminate all stress in life (and wouldn’t want to if you could!), and because it may not be possible to stop reacting to stress (even with the most positive outlook), it’s important to have some fast stress relievers in order to reverse your stress response quickly and prevent yourself from entering a state of chronic stress. Look at this article on the 12 Keys that can diffuse stressful emotions on the spot.

You can also prevent yourself from getting into an overwhelmed state (where you’re more reactive to stress) by maintaining some regular stress relief activities as part of your schedule, such as regular meditation, more exercise, journaling, and doing your favorite hobbies. It can keep you physically and emotionally healthy. Making a regular routine of any one of these things will be useful.

Stress Management Tip – Dealing With Airport Stress

With the additional stresses placed upon us with air travel, it is helpful to know how to deal with the stress that is created during our travels.  Here are some of the things we can do to deal with the stress when we are flying the friendly skies.

Leave for the airport early. – This will reduce the stress of not making your flight.  There is nothing like a white-knuckled mad driving trip to the airport to make your flight.  Lot’s of stress there.

Understand the check-in and gate layout – do you have a 2 minute walk to the gate, or a 20 minute walk to the gate?  Knowing the layout and time to get to the gate will make a big difference in being able to plan a less stressful flight.
