Arm Yourself To Douse Out Stress

Stray Thoughts: Reflections From The Lighter Side Of AdServices

As we make our way through life’s journey, everyone has their way of handling stress. Exercise. Meditation. Playing with a pet. I personally like to pump up my air mattress, lie in front of the TV with The Weather Channel on and squirt myself with a spray bottle every time I hear the words “scattered showers.”

The real secret to managing stress is to cultivate a state of mind that prevents bothersome people and situations from rattling your nerves. It all comes down to learning what’s in our power to control and what is not. Here’s a handy checklist I’ve devised to sidestep confusion:

1) Things Under Our Control: Ourselves.
2) Things Not In Our Control: The World and All the People In It.

There. I hope this enlightened philosophy helps you adapt to stress more efficiently and find lasting happiness and peace-of-mind in turbulent times. (If not, squirting yourself with water while watching The Weather Channel can do wonders for your frazzled psyche.)

    Thanks Alan, I think I’ll keep a water bottle near the TV now. Just In Case.
