What Do You Get When You Spell Desserts Backwards?

Do you get “stressed”?

Isn’t it ironic that the word reversal of desserts is stressed!

Today, we’ll talk about how to whip up the right dessert to relieve some of your stress.

#1 – Start with one dessert

You don’t want to overindulge – that’s a recipe for failure. Choose one treat at first, something that relieves your stress, and make it a part of your life.

#2 – Focus on the process, not the end product

On a recent episode of Monk, a television show we love, Monk took up a hobby. The problem is that he approached it just like he approached his work. His perfectionist tendencies took all the fun out of it.

We’re all very outcome-oriented in our daily lives. Give yourself some dessert – don’t think about the result – just enjoy the journey.

#3 – Start with something off-the-shelf
You don’t have to make your treat from scratch – use a mix.

For example, if you love books, you might think it would be a treat to be part of a book club. Keep in mind that you don’t have to be the leader; you don’t have to start a new one. Just join one that already exists!

#4 – Don’t let your sweet treat go sour
We have a tendency to compound stress with more stress. Your sweet treat shouldn’t be a chore – keep it simple and easy.

Maybe you have a favorite cause. Volunteer to help out. But resist the temptation to join a committee. You have enough meetings at work!

The icing on the cake
According to realage.com, in highly stressful times, your real age can be as much as 32-years older than your calendar age. Here’s another interesting fact – Duke University Medical Center found that the benefits of stress management seem to exceed those of both exercise and usual heart care.

That’s the icing on the cake! Finding ways to reduce stress is like discovering the fountain of youth! How sweet is that?

What’s your treat? Tell us how you relieve your stress!

Our Bigg Quote today comes from B.C. Forbes.

“Work is the meat of life, pleasure the dessert.”

You won’t enjoy your meat if you never get to have any pudding!

    When I’m really feeling stress, I like to go for a drive in the country. There’s something about the open space that calms my nerves.

    I just grab stress by the throat, stare it in the eyes, and tell it to go away.

    Seriously, I used to be stressed out all the time – now I am not. The problems are all still there, I just deal with them one at a time. If you chip away at a boulder long enough, you’ll end up with a pile of rubble.
