Stress Relief

THURSDAY, MAY 17, 2012

Being in control of your life and having realistic expectations about day-to-day challenges are the keys to stress management, which is perhaps the most important ingredient to living a happy, healthy and rewarding life.

- Marilu Henner, (born April 6, 1952, American actress, producer and author)

I also think stress is related to control.  When you're in charge of your life, you tend not to care about losing  control of things that don't really matter like traffic jams.

Are you overworked and dog tired?  Are you feeling stressed from the demands of your job or from family responsibilities and financial burdens?  Need to get out of the rat race - at least temporarily?  Here's a suggestion from Number 16,  It won't solve all your problems but it will provide you with some relief from stress.  It is absolutely free and it has no harmful side effects or undesirable consequences.  Just click the following link.  Then get ready to sit back and relax for two minutes.  Take your hands off your computer keyboard and mouse.  Calm yourself!

The Do Nothing For 2 minutes website was created by British entrepreneur Alex Tew and developer Ben Dowling.  Tew, who also created the Million Dollar Homepage, stated his reasons for creating the Do Nothing For 2 Minutes page:

I had been thinking how we spend every waking minute of the day with access to an unlimited supply of information.  I also read somewhere that there is evidence that our brains are being re-wired by the Internet because we get a little dopamine kick every time we check our e-mail or Twitter or Facebook and there's a new update.  So we're all developing a bit of ADD, which is probably not great in terms of being productive.
