It's That Time Again


The hot weather in most of the country belies the fact that Fall is coming and it's time for many people to head back to school. School presents the welcome and unwanted. Parents can breathe a sigh of relief as their kids go back to school. Educators brace themselves for a long and challenging year. Do not let the stress of change and situations get you down. Be better prepared to handle the stress and strain by learning and using the Intra Muscular Tension Control (IMTC) relaxation process. See the discount coupon for lower rates available for relaxation products including the relaxation CDs that feature the IMTC process. Begin the change to a less stressful environment by ordering and displaying your official SRN signs. Remember the signs for the No Stress Zone and Less Stress Today Hours as well as the Proclamation Against Sustained Stress (PASS) certificates and order them for your school or workplace. Display them prominently and be positive agents for change.

I have always been passionate about teaching. It is one of the few professions where the rewards can be seen each day. The rewards are not without challenges and with the challenges come stress. The stress was coming from all directions and from all angles-both on and off the job. Each morning started with the stress of fighting through rush-hour traffic to get to early-morning leadership meetings.  Read more 


Stress Release Oasis


Life is filled with stressors and challenges that can elicit Default Emotional Responses (DERs). The most common combinations of emotional and physical responses form stress. The Stress Release Oasis page will have various short messages, affirmations, videos or inspirational short stories and that can help one create and build defenses against stress as the reader(s) find a much needed respite from many of life's challenges in that oasis. On this page, you can also ask the Stress Rejection Doctor questions related to stressful situations disrupting your life style. Please send your questions and contributions to Your input will be included on the Stress Release Oasis page, the SRN page specifically dedicated to helping its readers build their resistance to stress. Please be alert for that page coming soon after the September edition of Serenity Pathways.
