1 Stress Out | Show stress who's the boss

Co-author Veronica "Roni" Ray

Roni is an associate with a company that helps people to remember the power of gratitude. To Roni, expressing gratitude means that our lives continue to be enriched as we appreciate people, events and definitely ourselves. 

As co-author in Stress Out, Roni advises. from her own experience, that we must be aware of the outside influences, and make changes in those that we can control.

Book excerpt:

"We must also be careful to avoid ingesting toxins in the form of violent TV programs,
video games, movies, magazines, and books.
When we watch that kind of violence, we water our own negative seeds,
or tendencies, and eventually we will think and act out of those seeds. "
~ Thich Nhat Hahn ~

The movies and television shows you watch have influence over your stress level. If what you are feeling is stressed and anxious, and you watch a movie that is violent, or the depressing segments of the news, you are reducing your ability to choose a positive response to your stress.

Alternatively, when you are feeling overwhelmed, stressed, unable to think clearly, or when you just need a break - watch a short inspiration movie, or comedy. Fifteen minutes of inspiration, or something that motivates you to laugh makes everything much easier after that. This is better than a long movie where if you watch only 15 minutes, your mind stays with the movie wondering what’s next, instead of being able to focus on your task at hand.

Stress is a constant in our lives, such a constant that we actually don’t realize we are under stress, we think it’s “just part of life.”

Traffic jams, deadlines, eating on the run, we stress when we have bills to pay, job changes, endless chores and too many errands. Our job has stress, not having a job has stress, it’s stressful maintaining your weight, having a relationship is stressful, not being in a relationship is stressful, family responsibilities are stress, and all those other demands on you can be huge amounts of stress.
Not to mention those people who really get on your nerves.

Our energy is drained, and we feel helpless. Health surveys report that over 70% of people feel stress everyday.
You are not alone.

Hi, my name is Sumner Davenport, one of the authors in this timely book.

Don't let the smile on my face fool you -
I am just like you
- attempting to figure out how to balance all of my obligations, deal with frustrations and setbacks, health worries, bills to pay,  relationships, and all the other everyday stresses ......
and desiring to be happy at the same time.

But is there anything that can be done?  Yes! There is!

Just like you, I needed answers. I certainly didn't have them all, in fact, on some days I didn't think I had even one. I searched.... listened to experts, created polls and surveys, talked to strangers - people like you and me. This book is more than just my words or experience, it is a joint effort of several authors who share their expert advice and experience PLUS stories and testimonials from individuals interviewed during my extensive search for solutions to teach stress who's the boss.

You may have searched the internet for answers as so many do, and found one suggestion at one website you visited that made sense to you, and you searched longer and found another one on another site and with more research you may have found more. And the more time you spent on the internet looking for solutions, the more stress you began to feel.

You may have found, like I did, information that talked more about the problem and less about solutions. This book is filled with solutions!
