“There are thousands of causes for stress, and one antidote to stress is self-expression. That’s what happens to me every day. My thoughts get off my chest, down my sleeves and onto my pad.”
Relieve stress by taking pictures, coloring, painting, drawing, writing, reading, writing haiku, taking walks, exercising…

“I can’t drink you away.
I’ve tried Jack, I’ve tried Jim,
I’ve tried all of their friends.
But I can’t drink you away.
All these rocks
I can’t swim
Out of this skin
I’m living in.”
—Lyrics by Justin Timberlake

Start each day with an infectious positive attitude!
I believe in this. I believe in starting out the day happy. I used to work with people who were huge bummers in the morning: the walking dead. Nothing like working with a bunch of ungrateful zombies throughout the day!
