    I have a LOT of stress lately so I have found a way to channel it into exercise and heavy cleaning during those times and also volunteer work at my church; it really helps :) emoticon emoticon

    All good ways to help you handle the stress. I worked retail for a long time and I know how stressful holiday season gets, I'm glad you have a plan.

    Linda, you are definitely one of the most thoughtful women I know. This is a great plan! I especially like the listening to music as that is such a good way to calm down and bring back some quiet (or not so quiet) joy!
