How you think about stress matters. What you do with the time you have matters. Do you acknowledge that stress will always be there in some way shape or form, and view it as a challenge? Or do you live with the anxiety that stress is going to make your life harder than it already is and let it run your day to the point of short temperedness, anger, and poor health? They say that there are two certainties in life: death and taxes. You can be assured that stress is another certainty everyone must either deal with or accept and use to make you a better individual. We provide techniques for anticipating and recognizing this fact to prepare you for life and all the stress it brings in the finite amount of time you have on this earth. The first step in dealing with stress is learning to be the leader of your day and not the manager of your time. This change in your view of stress can put you on the path to more efficient time utilization, better psychological well-being, and an over all healthier life for you and your family.
