A Stress Test

We’re about to take a 30 second stress test. Are you ready? Here it goes...

Do you find yourself in a constant rush mode, always trying to catch up? Do you often arrive late to appointments? Do you find yourself losing things, or forgetting where you put your car keys? Do you put things away and then have trouble finding them later? Are your drawers full of clutter, and your closets in disarray? Do you snap at people when they get on your nerves? Do you often say to yourself, “As soon as things slow down, I’m going on a holiday!’

If you answered yes to more than a few of these questions, then chances are good you’re struggling with stress. And the solution is surprisingly simple. Slow Down! Take a deep breath and learn to take life one minute at a time. Make a habit of doing everything more slowly. When you talk, eat or drive, take your time. Curl up in a chair and read a good book in the evenings. Slowing down will help you manage your stress.
