Stress Management

I had a chance to speak at a conference today which was full of working professionals, age group 20- 50 years. Hearing them discuss the issues of their companies, teams, products, deadlines, meetings and God knows what else; it was worth noticing that how individuals are shaping the future of organizations. The surprise element was however the stress level that each of them carried. Almost each of them reported problems of constant headache, blood pressure or high temperament.

Stress is a silent killer, it kills without warning. Don’t forget that “stress is not what happens to us. It is our response TO what happens, and RESPONSE is something we can choose.” When you find yourself stressed, ask yourself one question: Will this matter in 5 years from now? If yes, then do something about the situation. If no, then let it go.

Hi - I am enjoying your site! I also have a blog, website and product for work/life balance and work stress relief. It's part of a new company called Happy Hour Effect LLC started by me, a young widow mother, after 13 years in corporate America dealing with my own work/life stress. I developed a health supplement specifically to help ease work stress and I post motivational stories and advice on the company's online sites. Check out the website, blog, Facebook and Twitter pages. Let me know if you want to link back to each other!
Thanks and good luck! Kristen Brown
