Affirmation for January 14, 2011: Stress and Insanity

Insanity is often the logic of an accurate mind overtasked.- Oliver W. Holmes, Sr., The Autocrat of the Breakfast-Table, 1858Thought of the day:Stress takes its toll in the sneakiest of ways. When we find our minds racing more than once a day, and our sleep is troubled with thoughts of how the next day, week, maybe even month is going to pan out, we enter a danger zone that may have very real health consequences.While stress won't make you clinically insane per se, it's important to realize when it is having a negative effect on your mind and body. Get an objective second opinion, which doesn't have to come from a therapist. And when that other person tells you that you need to cut some things down, or that you need to arrange for a vacation, listen to them and take their advice.Have an ommmmmm day!TeamDS

I think that for me stress is the key. Slowing down will help me think clearly.
