Happy Valentine's Day!  




Valentine's day is the day when the expression of love is fully acknowledged and expected. The expression of love and love rules the day. It is your time to load up on the good stress including, for many, your favorite candy, beverage, and cuddling time with that favorite person. Try random acts of positive acknowledgement to others as well. Give everyone you see a hearty Happy Valentine's greeting. It could create lots of heartfelt smiles between you and others. Serenity is not too far behind every genuine smile.

Serenity Pathway Interviews

     Serenity Pathways Interviews with stress fighting experts feature professionals and other outstanding professionals who provide service in the area of stress reduction in a variety of fields. Most people do not hear of these experts who are developing programs to help people affected by stress as well as influencing how stress is studied and addressed. This issue's featured expert is Dr. Maggie Martin. In addition to her many responsibilities, she has been a leading force behind and developer of the Crisis Response Network (CRN) of the Counseling Directors Association of the University System of Georgia. Succinctly, this organization trains and provides counselors who can respond to critical incidents like at the recent New Town and Virginia Tech tragedies as well as other major critical incidents. The University System of Georgia is prepared to respond should such incidents happen in Georgia because of her work. The CRN was created before the critical incidents occurred in Newtown and Virginia Tech. 


SRN Spotlight on Unsung Heroes
in the Fight Against Stress:

Dr. Maggie Martin

Part II 


SP:  If you have 3-5 suggestions to give to your students/clients on how to reduce or cope with stress, what are those suggestions be?


A: I love imagery, metaphors.....answered in question above? I always try to ask, "How is your spiritual life?" That can mean attending church services of a certain denomination to praying to God to praying to an entity to sitting by a lake or spending time in the woods/forest/nature. Students always have had an answer, even if it was, "Not where it needs to be." Students seems to know what they need and what they need to do to get back to their healthy point in spirituality....whatever that means to each. It is very personal, usually very emotional and healing. This gives a student a 'plan' to follow whether making new connections on campus or with past spiritual rituals/connections.

SP:  What percentage of the student population or clients is adversely effected by stress?

A: I know the highest percentage statistically can be 100%. To answer your question, 150% :) Seriously, all students, faculty, staff, administration face stress. Even our most successful student leaders face issues of time management, meeting expectations, financial issues, juggling responsibilities. Grounds keepers, police and building custodians...and dining services workers? How can one ever meet everyone's demands?

A Better Me . . . Relaxed, Healthy, and STRESS-FREE! 

Rejecting stress is very important to me, especially since it can trigger a multitude of health and emotional problems-both of which, I would rather stay away from and control as much as I can.

My biggest motivations for actively rejecting stress are my family and friends. Being in a good mood and in good health ensures that I am able to be the sister, daughter, aunt, friend, co-worker, and general support that I need to be for my loved ones. No one wants to be around someone who is highly stressed and anxious. For my well-being and for the well-being of those around me, I try to keep it cool, calm, and collected.



De-Stressation Activity
