I cannot stress this enough... just do it

I am a great fan of stress. Without it I would probably curl up on the sofa and outsleep the cat. Just about everything I do that I enjoy, or is worthwhile, involves stress. I'm not unique. It is that way for most of us.

Stress is a problem when it overwhelms us. That happens to most of us now and again. There are the months when the accounts won't balance, when you have had an unpleasant disagreement with somebody, and then to cap it all the car breaks down.

Sometimes all you can do is laugh at the hand the universe has dealt you. These are the times when a chat with a friend works wonders. Or a long walk. Things are usually not as bad as they at first seem.
