How to Overcome Stress in your Life

Can't sleep?Irritated?Bad mood?Bellyache?Sweating?Well, those I mentioned are clear symptoms that you are deeply stressed. Cheer up, you're not alone, everybody gets stressed every now and then. Simply being caught in traffic would stress even a gentle soul! I'd like to act as a life guru and brag "be like me, I don't feel stress and neither should you"! But that is far from the truth, in fact, these past few days I've been going through a lot of stress and I feel a bit desolate because of it.
Yes, I feel stress, I feel desolate but one thing I don't feel is that I don't feel hopeless. I am full of hope. I know in my heart and mind that it is only temporary and it too shall pass.
Why am I full of hope? It is because, as I look back, what I thought was a big problem, was a big hurdle, was not without a solution. I felt like I was David facing my Goliath but as small and puny was David against the formidable Goliath, the former defeated the latter …

Traffic Blues

"Time stood still" is an apt description as one experienced traffic in the Philippines. I live outside of Metro Manila, but the traffic is the same as in EDSA. Everywhere there are diggings along the road, I am for improvement and development of infrastructure but I also wish that the areas to be dug had been studied further so that alternative routes can be taken that commuters can use.

Today I am 44 minutes late for work. But, I wasn't cranky or irritated. Usually, this heavy traffic ruins my day and left me out of sorts. What made this day different from other days, I am caught in traffic? Nothing really, in fact, it was even raining. I don't like rainy days, it makes me feel blue and somewhat lethargic. It makes me want to crawl back in bed and lampooned myself under the bed covers.
So what made this day differently? I decided to just enjoy the day, that simple. We usually complicate things by making mountains out of molehills. We want to make ourself angry abou…
