Get rid of stress, now

I previously posted an article called "Great Lesson on Stress" seems appropriate to post this article again.  Spring will bring the joy of flowers and warmer also  brings on many tasks, such as TAXES, yard clean up, planting..etc.  Unfortunately many people experience way too much stress during  this time..  Take time to look forward with a positive outlook...If your a person that... or knows someone that is carrying a burden of stress, check out these suggestions.


Every past year is one of many changes, and filled with concerns for our health care, jobs,  stormy weather events and so on.  Some of these, we can work to change for the better other things may not be in our control.  The important thing is how we carry or handle the stress.  



A young lady confidently walked around the room with a raised glass of water while leading a seminar and explaining stress management to her audience.  Everyone knew she was going to ask the ultimate question, 'Half empty or half full?'  She fooled them all.  "How heavy is this glass of water?" she inquired with a smile.  Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.  She replied, "The absolute weight doesn't matter.  It depends on how long I hold it.  If I hold it for a minute, that's not a problem.  If I hold it for an hour, I'll have a ache in my right arm.


If I hold it for a day, you'll have to call an ambulance.  In each case it's the same weight, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes". 

She continued, "and that's the way it is with stress.  If we carry our burdens all the time, sooner or later, as the burden becomes increasingly heavy, we won't be able to carry on.

"As with the glass of water, you have to put it down for a  while and rest before holding it again.  When we're refreshed, we can carry on with the burden - holding stress longer and better each time practiced. 


So, as early in the evening as you can, put all your burdens down.  Don't carry them through the evening and into the night.  Pick them up again tomorrow if you must...


Next...some truth and some humorous ways to look at life.


*  Accept the fact that some days you're the pigeon, and some days your're the statue !

*  Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.

*  Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.

*  Drive's not only cars that can be recalled by their maker.

*  If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.

*  If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

*  It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

*  Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you won't have a leg to stand on.

*  Nobody cares if you can't dance well.  Just get up and dance.

*  When everythings coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.

*  Birthdays are good for you.  The more you have the longer you live.


*  We could learn a lot from crayons.  Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box


*  A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.

*  Have an awesome day and know that someone has thought about you today.


*  Save the's the only planet with chocolate!


Be the kind of person that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says...

"Oh nuts, he or she is up!"

 Remedies you might not know about...Great Info

Who knew?
Did you know that drinking two glasses of Gatorade can relieve headache pain almost immediately-without the unpleasant side effects caused by traditional pain relievers?

Did you know that Colgate Toothpaste makes an excellent salve for burns?

Before you head to the drugstore for a high-priced inhaler filled with mysterious chemicals, try chewing on a couple of curiously strong Altoids peppermints. They'll clear up your stuffed nose.

Achy muscles from a bout of the flu? Mix 1 tablespoon horseradish in 1 cup of olive oil. Let the mixture sit for 30 minutes, then apply it as a massage oil for instant relief for aching muscles.

Sore throat? Just mix 1/4 cup of vinegar with 1/4 cup of honey and take 1 tablespoon six times a day. The vinegar kills the bacteria.

Cure urinary tract infections with Alka-Seltzer. Just dissolve two tablets in a glass of water and drink it at the onset of the symptoms. Alka-Seltzer begins eliminating urinary tract infections almost instantly-even though the product was never advertised for this use.

Honey remedy for skin blemishes... cover the blemish with a dab of honey and place a Band-Aid over it. Honey kills the bacteria, keeps the skin sterile, and speeds healing. Works overnight.

Listerine therapy for toenail fungus: Get rid of unsightly toenail fungus by soaking your toes in Listerine M outhwash. The powerful antiseptic leaves your toenails looking healthy again.

Easy eyeglass protection... to prevent the screws in eyeglasses from loosening, apply a small drop of Maybelline Crystal Clear Nail Polish to the threads of the screws before tightening them.

Cleaning liquid that doubles as bug killer... if menacing bees, wasps, hornets, or yellow jackets get in your home and you can't find the insecticide, try a spray of Formula 409. Insects drop to the ground instantly.

Smart splinter remover: Just pour a drop of Elmer's Glue-All over the splinter, let dry, and peel the dried glue off the skin. The splinter sticks to the dried glue.

Hunt's Tomato Paste boil cure... cover the boil with Hunt's Tomato Paste as a compress. The acids from the tomatoes soothe the pain and bring the boil to a head.

Balm for broken blisters... to disinfect a broken blister, dab on a few drops of Listerine, a powerful antiseptic.

Vinegar to heal bruises... soak a cotton ball in white vinegar and apply it to the bruise for 1 hour. The vinegar reduces the blueness and speeds up the healing process.

Quaker Oats for fast pain relief... it's not for breakfast any more! Mix 2 cups of Quaker Oats and 1 cup of water in a bowl and warm in the microwave for 1 minute, cool slightly, and apply the mixture to your hands for soothing relief from arthritis pain.
