Recognizing Stress

Americans are STRESSED OUT!!

Many of us, young and old, are under “extreme” stress. In our household of two parents and four kids, at times the stress level gets pretty high!!

A recent article in our local paper said: “the American psychological Association conducted 1, 134 adults ages 18 or older from Aug. 3 to Aug. 27, including 100 adults who were parents of children ages 8 to 17.  In addition to the national sample, the association surveyed another 937 adult parents. The report also includes the results of another online survey from Aug. 19 to Aug 24 of 1, 136 young people ages 8 to 17. The survey found that a majority of Americans are living with “moderate” stress, which is a stress level of four to seven on a scale of one to 10.”

What is your stress level from 1 to 10? Can you easily identify your stress triggers? Brainstorm ways to reduce everyday stress!! For me, today’s cartoon says it all..forget it – don’t sweat the small stuff…don’t stress over spilt milk or… get someone else to stress for ya – poor puppy!! NO! don’t cause pets stress either!!
