Stress is something we all experience at one time or another, whether it be financial, work, family or a combination of the three. Stress can play a significant role in one's health and wellness; in the most detrimental and mysterious ways. In order to reduce the amount of stress in one's life, it first must be determined what the stressor is. The next phase is determining how to reduce, eliminate or amend the cause.

One of the simplest ways we as individuals can reduce our stress is by having a positive attitude. It is known that the pessimists, perfectionists and type "A" personalities experience stress on a higher level. These individuals bring stressful events into their lives with their self sabotage thought and behavior patterns. If you have some of these tendencies, you can significantly reduce the level of stress you experience with these resources at: http://stress.about.com/od/selfknowledge...

To find out if you have a type "A" personality, visit the following web address and take a short quiz. http://stress.about.com/library/Type_A_q...

Another resource to boost morale and encourage positive thinking, and one that I would recommend to everyone is the book, "How Full is Your Bucket" by Tom Rath and Donald O. Clifton. The book uses a simple metaphor of a dipper and a bucket to represent our daily occurrences with other individuals. Truly a great book for all individuals, especially those with management or supervisory roles! Has anyone read or heard of the book?
