Thank you for taking the time in reading this blog. For two months now I have debated back and forth on--to blog or not to blog. But finally today, I decided TO BLOG! Why? Because I am an avid reader who constantly reads amazing literature, blogs, online articles, etc. that I feel should be shared and discussed with the world.
Last night, for example, I read an online article on "10 Ways for Men to Reduce Stress" and thought wow I know so many men that could benefit from this information. This article was great, so I wanted to re-post it here so that you can also enjoy it, learn from it, and hopefully begin to incorporate some of the suggestions.
Here is the link:
10 Ways for Men to Reduce Stress - Men's Health Center - EverydayHealth.com
The only suggestion that was left out from the article, which I HIGHLY recommend is taking time out to be creative (i.e., making art, dancing, listening/playing music, etc.). Creativity is an excellent stress buster and should be part of everyone's stress management toolkit!
Need help developing your creativity or with reducing your stress call or email me for some assistance.
P.S. Remember prevention (i.e., reducing your stress now) can save you a lot of headaches later (i.e., medical and emotional issues).
