Hello glad you clicked on my post thank you ...

I was clearing out some files this morning and came across this old document from early January 2003 ... strange isn’t it ... some-thing just don't change ... including Bad Habits Not keeping to Disiplins ... so if like me … you feel or get stressed through the day ... this might help you "wink wink" I printed this out …maybe you should too?

What are the simplest secrets of dealing with Computer stress - and of relieving it? Ten stress busting techniques to get you started...

Keep a list - for at least a fortnight - of events, times, places, as-in Forums lol … and those kinda people that seem to make you feel more stressed obviously!!. You will probably be surprised to find that a pattern soon emerges; and this may be linked to time pressure, personality clashes, inappropriate demands or simply trying to do too many things at once. Once you have identified your pressure points you can move on to the following solutions...

Talk through your diary with a good friend or your partner.. or share in this forum?? – it’s true even the act of discussing things often makes you feel better. Ask for impartial advice as to how to ease the problems that you have discovered, or choose the sort of stressful situations that you have identified in which to use the following relaxation techniques.

Practice deep-breathing techniques such as slowly inhaling while counting to five; hold your breath for five seconds then breathe out slowly. Repeat this 10 times when feeling stressed, concentrating on nothing but your breathing.
Stretch the muscles of your neck and shoulders by keeping your shoulders level and trying to touch each shoulder with your ear. Look right up at the ceiling, down at the floor and then rotate each shoulder in a wide circle. Repeat five times. Open and close your jaw widely after each time since stress often causes tenseness in the jaw area.
• Take time out. For five minutes every hour, try to 'shut down' and think of nothing but your perfect situation. This could be a dream holiday, ideal partner or simply thinking about doing nothing at all. You will be surprised at how effectively this can lower stress levels

You do not have to be a gym freak to get the stress-beating benefits of exercise. Even 20 minutes of brisk walking three times a week will help to reduce stress as well as promoting restful sleep.

The aim here is to allow time for the unexpected (which, as we all know, will happen!). Get up 15 minutes earlier than you think you need to and prepare for the day without rushing. Even better, get things ready the night before. Try to have 20 minutes in the morning and afternoon that is exclusively ‘your’ time, in which you can do whatever you want, even if it is simply sitting doing nothing. Look forward to these times when things get busy and if you are unable to use them always remember to 'catch up' later on.

One approach, on the other hand, to avoid, is that of using smoking and alcohol as crutches to help you cope - in the long run they simply make stress worse. Drinking more to 'calm your nerves' is a slippery slope.

Five handy stress busting techniques for you to use in everyday situations…

Sitting upright on a chair, and keeping your back straight, extend your arms out in front of you as far as possible. Hold for ten seconds. Repeat, with your arms behind you. Then hold on to the sides of your chair and push your body upwards. Feel your spine stretch. Hold for ten. Now stretch arms to the ceiling, to release tension in back and shoulders. Relax and shake your arms.

Certain aromas are thought to activate the production of the brain's feel-good chemical serotonin [although one recent research study suggests that the benefits claimed for Aromatherapy may derive from the power of suggestion. Drip a few drops of the following Aromatherapy oils on a tissue to sniff when you feel stress levels rising: jasmine, neroli, lavender, camomile, vetiver, clary sage.

Mess creates confusion and a sense of loss of power. If your desk/home/car is messy and disorganised, have a good clear out and tidy up. You'll instantly feel more in control.

Many stresses are habitual. If you start to feel anxious or stressed out, do something out of character. Stop what you're doing and do something else. Or take a minute to take stock and work out why you're feeling uptight.

Use 'affirmations' - positive strands of thought put into words. Repeating, 'I am whole, perfect strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, happy and prosperous, and yes I am a very much loved person',
can work wonders. Say it and believe it. And it will become true.

We all know we should do something such as this but doing it requires a discipline …
So Print this out and keep checking it and your Computer Stress will end up Stress less

Then Have a Cool Day Every Day

 Maintain Sanity by Keeping a Diary

The more gadgets we have to help us get things done, the more life seems to speed up. To keep your sanity in the whirlwind of life, keep a diary.

Diaries have often been touted as great things for kids, particular teenagers. The idea is the diary acts as an outlet for them to express their views in privacy, ruminate about problems and so on. It is there own little private space in the wild, wacky world of teenage life.

Having left your teen years behind, you might scoff at the idea of keeping a diary. Buy why? In case you haven’t noticed, the modern world for adults often can seem like high school. The shear pace of daily life can be daunting. Throw in petty disputes at work and such, and it can all get very crazy, very quickly.

Keeping a diary of your life serves a couple of important steps in keeping your sanity. First and foremost is something that has to do nothing with the diary itself. To keep a diary, you should set aside 20 minutes or so each day to write. Typically, this should occur at some point in the evening. Regardless of what you write, the 20 minutes serves as an effective timeout from life. Don’t answer the phone! Regardless, it is a very useful 20 minutes where you can just relax with no distractions. A bit of “me time” if you will.

The second value of keeping a diary is reflection. The beauty of a diary is you don’t have to write anything in particular. That being said, it is still an opportunity to take a moment and reflect on the day. It gives you the opportunity to review things you did positively and others you might want to change. Far to often in today’s world, we simply don’t take the time to think about our actions. This can be very therapeutic as it gives you a chance to vent.

The third value of putting pen to paper is introspection. Every so often, you are going to go through a bad stretch. Hey, that is life. If you didn’t have bad stretches, you wouldn’t value the good ones. When you inevitably hit this moment, go back and read through your diary. The farther you read back, the more you will realize you have gone through bad stretches before and come out with flying colors. A review of forgotten circumstances might even give you a guide to solving your current one. The best lessons in life are the ones that are not forgotten!

Whatever your circumstances in life, writing down your thoughts on a daily basis can go a long way to keeping you from going insane. Whatever your age, keeping a diary is a good choice.
