Family Time – Reduce Stress and Enjoy Your Time With Family

By Ellen R. Norman

Family time can be defined in many ways, depending on your lifestyle, and who or what you consider as family. Most people define family as spouse and/or children. But for some it could be the cherished pets. And still for others their closest friends.

We are generally social ‘animals’ with a ‘herd-tribe’ mentality. We need the ‘herd’ to survive. This togetherness is very important and gives us a sense of completeness and security. When we are unable to prioritize our time, energy, or thoughts towards these important entity’s, we get stressed, worried and anxious.

Of course the first priority on your list is for yourself, yes, you. Your health and wellbeing must be maintained, before you can give to others. Remember you ‘ must have your cup of energy filled before you can give to others’. When you are wasted, tired, depressed and otherwise stressed out, you are a hindrance rather then a help to your family.

Having Foggy Memory? Don’t Forget to Deal With Stress

By Janet Martin

It is quite normal to forget where you have placed your keys or parked your car once in while. Everybody has dealt with such phenomena. However, if you keep on forgetting a lot of things, then you may need to see your doctor. Remember that even if you are getting older, it doesn’t mean that you should accept memory lapses and fogs as if they are inevitable age-related changes.

For so long, people were led to believe that difficulty in remembering things often are just symptoms of old age. Most of the time, however, fuzzy memory is actually caused by stress and anxiety. If you want to minimize or totally eliminate memory lapses, you should first alleviate stress or deal with what makes you feel anxious and tensed. Read the rest of this entry »

Hard working Type A people also have trouble relaxing, and this can create big problems for them. Could this be you or perhaps, some one you know? Read the rest of this entry »


It’s About Time

Written by Renita Kalhorn

Here in New York, holiday decorations had made their appearance before we had even celebrated Thanksgiving. Apparently time is not passing by fast enough for the rabid retailers.

Accordingly, the pace picks up as our days fill with additional seasonal activities – parties, shopping, travel – crowding already jam-packed schedules. But rather than savoring the specialness of the season, we rush along in a frenzy of activity, stressed and anxious about getting everything done.
