Humor - A Great Stress Reliever

I Find that when someone is having a bad day . . .

I Find that when someone is having a bad day . . .

It's always a good idea to postpone the humor for a little while! After an appropriate count of, from one to ten . . .


I pull out the prank Hand Shake Buzzer!

I wake up, and I'm stressed, I work all day long, and I continue to be stressed. I go to bed, and I find that I'm still stressed. Stress is the number one constant in my life. So, I find that by totally displacing the stress, and interjecting into someone else's stress filled life . . . it helps me relieve some of the stress I'm feeling.

Thank you for sharing the way you relieve stress with my visitors and me. I agree that humour is a wonderful thing for stress relief. However, a word of caution: When it comes to interjecting in someone's else's stress-filled life, humour is effective against that stress only if that someone else see's it as humour. By the way, love your Sasquatch Xing humour...put a chuckle in my day!
