Like always, I take a deep deep breath and remind myself that strong woman stay young, he he. It's a momentary ceasefire between me and my wrinkles.

i think i have answered this already.... here is what i must have written... " i have always been faced with stressed from my work and even here at home. i guess the only way is to stay calm and not get angry or irritated. it can be annoying but try not to be annoyed. people will get into your nerves but remember, they will affect you if you let them do so. :)"

Calm down, and give yourself a few minutes to breath. Assure yourself you can handle it positively and that everything is going to be okay after the overwhelming situation you have right on time. cheers!!

Stressful situation? Just have a walk or do some yoga or just meditate. I'm sure it will help. If not then why laugh...lol..laughter is a good medicine..hehehe...

My answer was very long, I didnt think of this very simple and useful way of dealing with stress. You are right, perhaps we just have to smile or laugh, but lets make sure nobody sees us for they might think something else, lol.

I handled my most stressful situation I recently encoutered by being true to myself that I cannot do it alone. I am a christian so its easier for me to handle stressors than in the past. I placed all my trust in God and try to stay calm (even though this was difficult)and I repeated bible passages constantly and frequently. Also I did what I have to do. By doing this each moment became was less stressful. It is important to note that whenever one is stressed that they have someone who can encourage them and not simpathize with them. Also no man is an island, so asking for help is not a shame or disgrace but being smart and realistic.

You are right. We should not worry to much about it, as long as we did an appropriate action.

There are some problems that we can't solve in a snap. So it's better way to just calm down and be relax. Just like what i did during my recent stressful experienced. The Dept. of Education asked me to submit some documents. If i can't give this documents, they will not give me school assignment. So i was so stress during that time. My documents are all in the Philippines. Time is running out...they might give my school to the other teacher. With the help of prayers and my family in the philippines' help. I was able to passed this stressful experienced.

Good to hear that Arlene. It pays to be calm and in presents of mind at all times. That way we would be able to think right and do the necessary action just to meet the deadline.

Practically, One should calm down and take deep breath and try to affirm that you are relaxed and drink water and take control of your situation. Thats all one would do. I have around 24 different types of stress releiavers may be you can check it out, by accessing my profile and my site from there
