Simple and pleasurable stress management techniques

Tips to REALLY De-Stress
Suck it in and take a minute to read this!

Here are some ideas to help you reduce stress throughout the day.

1. If anyone at work looks at you crossly, say, “I don’t like the way you are looking at me”, then empty a trash can on the floor. Smile and walk away.

2. Shut your feelings and emotions up in a vault. Don’t trust anyone and don’t believe 99% of words spoken. They are all liars and frauds!

3. When you get home, if your mate or partner or roommate has left clothes lying around, simply spit on them and say, “You’d like it better if you had them in the hamper.

4. When you have to have somebody over and cook a dinner for him/or her (if you aren’t crazy about them) – don’t spit in their food; but put some disgusting spices together and make something horrible. Then serve it to your guest, smiling.

6. If you have to listen to someone and they are boring at the moment, tune them out. Men are naturals at doing this.
It’s like not being there when you are actually there.

7. Today a lady in the store starting smiling and talking to me. If it happens to you, look her in the eyes and say, “shut up”. Then smile and turn away.

8. When someone is riding your ass and they don’t get the message – slam on your breaks and make them hit you. It will be their fault.

9. When you are asked if something that someone (man or woman) does that is bad – like singing – tell them to shut up too. Assholes.

10. Lastly, when someone tries to tell you something you know isn’t accurate – just smile and punch him or her in the face. Then walk away laughing.
There now. Don’t you feel better? I know I do. ☺

A stress management technique for your pleasure! Get it out of your head and move on to the next unknown moment. No one can say life isn’t an adventure!

If you can’t even laugh at something (maybe not this:) – then you need to seek a counselor, family and friends help, internet health information highway, yoga, massage, or whatever it takes to calm down. Take a breath. Feel better! Someone really does care.

    Gosh – guess you must be human like the rest of us! I think we all are guilty of some less than “wonderful” thoughts and actions. But the happiest people I know don’t let outside influences turn them into a monster. I like to be happy so I will 🙂 Have a wonderful day!

    May GOD Bless!!! Mark

  5. Marsha J. O'Brien Says:

    Why thank you Mark. You did get that this was an “exercise” in relieving stress by getting
    rid of all those thoughts and then being done with the negativity, and going forward, didn’t you? God blesses me every day I take a breath – but I appreciate your blessing for me too!
    Have a safe holiday.

  6. Marsha J. O'Brien Says:

    Thanks. This was, you realize, an exercise in “thinking out your anger” and then dropping it and moving forward…God bless you too, Mark.

    I KNOW it’s been too long since I got anger out of my head. I won’t name one thing I’m thinking of, as it may be incrimminating, but suffice it to say, i’d totally “murder my life”–not me..just the life I’ve made thus far. No more band-aids and patch work, just blow the whole $#@! thing up!

    i feel like my life is a crinkled old piece of paper that I started writing a story on and kept erasing marks and now there are holes and illegible traces of re-written stories. Problem is, I don’t have more paper and I’ve got a message to get out.

    I don’t recall the movie but it was Mike Douglas having a bad day and he took his sawed off shot gun into a fast food restaurant. He simply wanted a burger! Oh, how I can relate!

    Thanks for giving me a place for a mental poop!

    Hey girl – that’s what this post was all about. We all have those days. Getting it out is a healing move. ANYTIME you want to post anything on this blog – you are a welcome little mama! Take a breath and don’t you feel better after a good poop? (tee hee)
