Feeling Stressed?

{photo via Kent Vogel}

I don't know about you, but lately I have been feeling pretty stressed out ~ work, the economy, my pathetic 401K withering away. Thursday night I was doing my usual ~ catching up on email, trolling the internet, working on a crochet project ~ while watching/listening to tv. PBS had a program on stress that seemed like it might be interesting, so I turned from my usual mindless choices and tuned in. Glad I did ~ it was quite enlightening.

I have always thought that the higher up the corporate ladder, the higher the stress level(because of the responsibility) ~ thus the higher salary. Turns out, that isn't necessarily true ~ it has more to do with dominance and submissiveness. When it comes to stress, apparently baboons are very similar to humans ~ read all about it here. Especially interesting to see what happened to the Keekerok troop ~ I wonder how that could possibly be translated to humans?!

Some help for the stressed: 10 Best Stress Busters. Guess I better get started!
