You tell me: How do you handle pressure?

The alarm buzzes, you hit snooze for the second time. Thirty minutes later you run out the door. Late again.

You check your bank account. That check from months ago just cleared. Panic strikes and you transfer what you can from Peter to pay Paul.

Traffic is bumper to bumper. The red light in your car flashes and you realize you should have filled the tank yesterday.

Kids are crying, the laundry is piled up and all you want to do is take something for your headache.

So…What do we do? How do we cope?

For me, a hot bath or twenty minute bike ride at the gym does the trick.

How about you?

  1. I don't use an alarm unless I have to be up before 5 a.m., which is about twice a year.I don't have kids or a live in.I work within walking distance and I'm the boss, so late to work isn't a problem.The only stress is when I have a project whose deadline is impossible for the due date.I sit in my big chair in the living room, close my eyes and drift.


  2. It's usually variations on a theme of chocolate. And bawling. Often both. Fortunately, my life is pretty low-maintenance, and I eat chocolate no matter what. We call that taking preventive measures.So it's usually all good!


  3. As I have gotten older, I tend to eliminate all of those problems. I force myself to plan out everything, keeping some type of control on my life. When I was younger, anything and everything could go wrong and did go wrong !
