Ten Tips for Stress Management

How you doing?  :)


In a world where you can be anything, be yourself.


Standing alone is better than standing with people who don't value you.


Sometimes you have to sink down further than you've ever been to rise up higher than you've ever gone.


Studies show that pets are great furry therapy. They relieve stress, lower blood pressure and reduce cortisol (which is associated with depression and anxiety).  Plus they elevate oxytocin (linked to happiness and relaxation).  And they are gosh darn cute!


The desire to reach for the stars is ambitious.  A desire to reach hearts is wise. - Maya Angelou


If you want improved relationship, improve your health.  You have more to give others when you feel energetic, focused and comfortable in your skin.


Learning lessons does not end.  There's no part of life that doesn't contain its lessons.  If you're alive, that means there are still lessons to be learned. - Cherie Carter-Scott


It's really not that complicated to live inspired and more joyfully even amidst undesirable circumstances as long as you can slow down from the inside to notice when your thinking is affecting your experience.


We all smile in the same language. :)


If you get knocked down, take a look around...you might find unexpected wonders.


The things in life that really matter are rarely on my "to do" list.


Crab cakes  :)




Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I always appreciate and enjoy reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share!

  4. I’ve never seen a man walking his tortoise in the neighborhood, but it’s so fun to see especially such a cute tortoise. Sometimes I feel I never learn a lesson repeating the same kind of mistake and I can’t help but laugh at myself in the constant choices and consequences. Have happy days ahead, Linda.

  5. The Cayman Islands look like a wonderful place to me! Even though it's still summer, I am already wearing a scarf, coat and this morning I contemplated putting something on my head to keep my ears warm. A bit of a warmer climate sounds like heaven :-)

  20. Hello Linda
    Je m'arrête ce jour sur ta vidéo de la tortue. Comme j'ai pu te le dire déjà, j'aime beaucoup les tortues terrestre. Nous en avons 5 dans notre jardin.
    La tortue de la vidéo est une tortue Sulcata. Nous avions la même et nous l'avons gardé 19 ans.

    Bravo pour tous tes autres posts qui sont toujours de grande qualité.
    Belle journée à toi. Je t'envoie une grosse bise

  21. Hello and have a nice day.

  22. Good morning, dear Linda! Today's gag video made me laugh out loud. The one man caught stealing the police cruiser acted so nervous that it makes me think he was on parole. Those tips for stress management are excellent. I would like to add that playing your favorite music and singing and dancing to it is another good way to unwind and beat stress. God bless that huge tortoise. The creature will surely be sad when he outlives his owner. I hope he winds up with another caring person who takes him for daily walks.

    Happy Thursday, dear friend Linda!

  24. I was afraid that one man in the JFL gag was going to have a heart attack. I was glad to see his relieved smile in the end. The tortoise was interesting.

  29. Good morning Linda. I went on a cruise and one island we stopped off was the Cayman Island. In fact there is spot in the video that shows a Carnival ship right there. It could have been my ship. LOL. That was the time when I met a former student of mine. He was working in a bank. I met his wife and she was beautiful. The Cayman Island was a very beautiful place to go and maybe someday I'll want to go back there.
    Have a beautiful Thursday my friend. See ya.

  32. One must always love the sight of moose!

    ReplyDelete
  33. How does one care for a pet tortoise, I wonder. And I think that I'd not want to be caught stealing a cop car! :) Isn't that line with the moose from "Friends." Joey's line with girls was "How YOU doin'?)"

  40. Hi Linda! The gag was so funny! And your post today is filled with so many inspiring and true words. I've known forever that faking a smile can make you feel so much better! And it really works! But I don't have to fake a smile when I think of you, Linda! I can't keep a real one off my face! Hugs!
