I recently took an online stress management course from Harvard Business Publishing. It surprisingly revealed to me that I handle stress pretty well. I’ve developed means of dealing with stress over the years, one of my favorite methods of coping is spending time jamming on the bass – usually to some ZZ Top. I’m not as good as I want to be so there’s always a goal of getting better. I used to play golf a long time ago but I ultimately found I could usually throw my clubs further than I could consistently hit the ball. Given that, it wasn’t that great of a way to reduce my stress so I gave it up. I’m curious to hear how others dealing with their own or a family member’s medical hurdles deal with their stress.
