Name:Category: Health & HealingStatus: OwnerDescription: Hello Everyone: ARE YOU UNDER TOO MUCH STRESS TO WASTE TIME READING THIS MESSAGE? This modern world of ours has us multi-tasking more than ever before. When you feel that you are failing at achievements that are important to you, you will feel stress. Tell me about an achievement that fits into the above category and I, or another member of this group, will give you the best advice that we have to offer. I have written a self-published book that I entitled, --- The Human Mind. In it I postulate that understanding fear equals understanding human behavior. I can probably help you but if I cannot, I'll tell you so. Why is humor so important to mental health? Because when you are laughing, most of the time you are giving the unwritten message that you enjoy life. Of course if your laughter is at the expense of someone else, that is an entirely different situation all together. Here is a story that illustrates how important humor is. A man went to see a psychiatrist and after about 7 or 8 visits the Psychiatrist said: "I've tried everything I know to try to help you but nothing seems to be working. I've got a ticket to the circus that is in town right now and my wife wants me to take her to the Opera tonight. So I'm going to give the ticket to you. I want you to go there and pay particular attention to the clown in the center ring. Whenever I am feeling down or depressed, I go to see him and he is so ridiculous that I start laughing and the next thing I know I am not depressed or down anymore." "That sounds like a great idea said the patient, except for one thing, --- I'm the clown." Sign up and let's explore this subject together. You have nothing to lose except a large chunk of the stress that is weighing you down. Your Stress moderator, Les Stress. :-) Or you can call me by my real name: --- Steve Adams.
