How to Handle Election Drama




Dear Stress Rejection Doctor,


Over the past few months, I've been experiencing a great amount of stress over the upcoming election. The 2012 Presidential election is a large stress factor in the lives of many people in this country right about now. Critical issues will be affected by the outcome of this election. Over the past eight years, the bottom has fallen out of the stock market, unemployment rates have increased significantly, the bottom has fallen out of the housing market, and millions of people have lost their homes.


When I look closely at the upcoming election, I realize that the outcome can significantly affect my life as well as the lives of the people whom I love and care for the most. Lucky for us all, Presidential election stress only happens once every four years.

From All Hallow's Eve to  
New Year's Eve - Reject the Stress

Halloween anxiety is not what you may think. It is not a fear of Halloween -
(Don't be scared.)
It is an anxiety that occurs with the anticipation of the upcoming Holiday Season. As soon as Halloween is over, at 11:59pm, retailers across the country mark down the remaining candy and decorations and start to pull out all the stock-Christmas stock-and hire seasonal workers to get all of the holiday decorations up as the race begins to be among the first to be fully decorated to jump-start the spending rush. After all, "'tis the season to be jolly."

Golden Years - - Not Too Late to Start Rejecting Stress


As a 66-year-old female-who desires to live to at least 100-rejecting stress plays a key role in my day-to-day living. I take to heart the "Don't sweat the small stuff, because it's all small stuff," view of life.


There is nothing more motivating for me than being present for my five grandchildren and one great granddaughter. I want to watch them grow and positively influence the decisions, choices and challenges they'll face. I have learned to put more emphasis on diet, rest, and nutrition and to keep my mind agile. Working after retirement has been wonderful as it forces me to go to bed at a reasonable time, to eat three balanced meals a day, and to exercise so that I have the energy to perform-often times exceeding the energy level of my younger counterparts.
