People in the Spotlight Under Stress:  Mini - Stress Analysis 


Tiger Woods is a living, world renowned golf legend. He has been in and out of the spotlight since he was a child. Has stress finally taken its toll on him?

Working as a speech pathologist is labor intensive and requires vigilant attention to detail while multitasking. My clientele ranges between infants who are born with feeding issues to geriatrics who are unable to communicate or chew and swallow a regular texture diet. When a mother is unable to feed her newborn, when a child is a reluctant communicator because of an articulation or language disorder, or an adult is unable to express his or her wants and needs or eat with his or her family there is extreme stress, anxiety and isolation for the new parent, student, patient, and caregiver. The joy of living we often take for granted returns when: a mother is able to give nourishment to her newborn without his heart rate increasing; a child is able to communicate and understand academic and social language; an adult can express his wants and needs and eat with his family.

In future editions of Serenity Pathways, you will have the opportunity to submit topics and ask for feedback or submit articles about how you cope with certain challenges in your life. Share information on how you minimize your anxieties and stressors. Stress Rejecters input is always welcome.  Share information on what seems to help at home and work and make things less hectic. Recruit more stress rejecters whether or not they are members of the SRN. As a SRN member you have the right to encourage No Stress Zones or Less Stress Today Hours at home and on the job. The SRN also will have available certificates of Proclamation Against Sustained Stress  (PASS) to hang prominently at home and in the work place. Request your No Stress Zones or Less Stress Today Hours and PASS certificates.  The certificates will be another visible sign to encourage family, work, and community commitments to less stress and the process of moving stress out of daily life activities. Share with others how you are demonstrating your commitment as a Stress Rejecter.
