    As a result of having been well-satisfied with a previous job done by your firm, we contacted you to paint several rooms in our house.

  • Beat The Stress This Week

    [caption id="attachment_4562" align="alignleft" width="227" caption="Keeping Calm During Stressful Times"]anxiety[/caption]

    This week is National Stress Out Week, which actually means the opposite of it's title. LifeHacker is here to give us some key strategies to battle stress and keep calm during anxious and stressful situations:

    It's National Stress Out Week, which, contrary to what the name implies, means it's time to try to combat poisonous stress. In honor of the occasion, we've rounded up some of our favorite ways to tackle stress of all kinds.

    1. First, understand what stress actually does to you and identify whether you have acute stress (temporary and immediate) or chronic (constant) stress. For acute stress, deep breathing can help calm your mind. Chronic stress requires more practice in stopping the stress reflex as soon as it starts.
    2. Meditation has been proven to relieve chronic pain and stress, actually helping people control their brains' alpha waves better. And it's not hard to get started with meditation.
    3. Another reason to exercise regularly: doing so actually prepares our bodies to deal with stress, making us more stress-resistant. Because of its emphasis on breathing and being in the "now," yoga is one of the best practices for alleviating stress.
    4. Got a crazy person causing your stress (like your boss, perhaps)? Put as many people between you and crazy as possible, and disengage.
    5. Developing a personal renewal program that includes exercise, spending time with your friends, and/or enjoying hobbies may protect you from a toxic work environment. You'll need to find time for your personal life to do this.
