The clock is ticking. Everyone's counting on you. Which wire do you cut? While most of us never have to deal with the life-or-death dilemmas of a bomb squad, everyday situations, such as job interviews, public speaking, and family emergencies, can be every bit stressful if we are not accustomed to dealing with them...I have read in lots of places that knowing how to handle stress and related situation help one to lead a healthy, happier lief...but sometime I still jammed, clogged. cos the rules are not always the same for me and everyone am sure....so People Tell me how do you take in pressure...are you a pressure absorber? a pressure prone, or does stress set you off? We want to learn and know from your experiences. Nuel

"The most beautiful gems are shaped by the Earth's greatest pressures." This is one line told by our professor. She is the one who always gives us the pile of reports and researches. We always complain that she is making our student life miserable. And at that day she told me this... I felt a bit okey. I told myself... yes... she is right. Sometimes, these pressures that are being put on our shoulders are just challenges to become better. The pressure of having everyone counting on you is a sweet challenge that you are trusted, that everyone thinks you are good and you can handle it. Yes, pressure gives us headaches and sleepless nights trying to figure out which steps we have to take. Just look at it as a challenge... I used to say... pressure is making me STRESSED ... i never thought that the answer on how to deal with it is in the word itself... STRESSED - read it backwards... DESSERTS ... this worked to me... eat sweets... but not too much, okey. Just don't deprive yourself from the things you want to do. If you want to rest for a while, or if you want to cool down, then do it, just do everything in moderation and keep the task in mind. It will eventually be finished...

I handle pressure by viewing it as a challenge, test or puzzle. I try to be logical in the sollutions and take each item on one step at a time. If it is a family emergency, I use my training to help guide me.
