Six Stress Prevention Tips
November 8, 2011
The child is in me still and sometimes not so still.
-Fred Rogers
Scientific American Mind (September 2011) offered "six strategies for fighting stress before it starts":
  1. Seek and kill.  Take a few minutes every day to identify stressors in your life and find ways to reduce or eliminate them.

  2. Commit to the positive.  Don't rely on self-destructive ways of coping with stress — drinking, drugs, overeating.

  3. Be your own personal secretary.  People who keep lists of things to do really do more things.

  4. Immunize yourself.  Through exercise, thought management, and the daily practice of relaxation techniques, you will be in a better position to face stressors.

  5. Make a little plan.  Spend a few minutes every morning planning your day.  You will waste less time, get more done, and feel less stressed.

  6. And make a big plan.  Planning your future is a great way of exercising more control over your life.

I've emailed to info@ChildCareExchange.com twice in October attempting to order a set of Learning Moments CD, "Learning Through Play: Ages 0-3 Years" but never receive any response.

Please advise how can we order this CD when we are outside of the USA.

Thank you.
