Awesome April Fools’ Day Prank

Posted in : Just For Fun!

Mouse

This post is just for fun because having fun is a great way to stress less … especially on April Fools’ Day!  Here is a super easy and fun April Fools’ Day prank that I had loads of success with today:

 

1.  Cut a small square off from the sticky part of a “sticky  note”.

2.  Write “April Fools!” on it.

3.  Stick it over the red light sensor on your Fools’ mouse.

4.  Sit back and see how long it takes before they figure out why their mouse isn’t working!

 

Here’s to you having fun and stressing less … Be well – Chad

Check out this dog … literally!

Posted in : In the News,Stress Less

Yale Law School is experimenting with a new program to help their students in the ongoing battle with stress.  Monty, a certified therapy dog, is a 21-pound, brown, border terrier mix who is available for students to check out — literally — from the law library.  The thirty minute sessions with Monty provide students with an additional avenue for stress relief.

Law librarian, Blair Kauffman, hopes the free three day pilot program is a “positive addition to current services offered by the library.”

My take on Monty the Stress Therapy Dog …

MTV and the Associated Press recently teamed up and studied over 2000 students from 40 randomly selected colleges across the nation.  Their results showed that 85% of students are stressed out on a daily basis.  In my career as a hospital pharmacist, I’ve seen therapy dogs make a positive impact in the lives of patients with various medical conditions and suspect those benefits would carry over to stressed out students as well.  As a pharmacist and wellness advocate who specializes in showing students, professionals, and entrepreneurs medication-free strategies to minimize stress and maximize success, I’m ecstatic to see such a program for the students at Yale Law School and hope their trial run is a huge success.

To less stress and abundant success,

Chad

Could You Be Stressed Without Even Knowing?

Posted in : Health & Wellness,Mind, Body, Spirit,Quick Tips,Stress Less

When I show clients strategies to help minimize stress in their lives, I often begin with one very simple, yet amazingly powerful tip:  Become Aware.

When we are stressed, our bodies begin to tell us we are stressed before we may even realize it.  We may not “feel” stressed out, but our bodies may be telling a different story.  During these times a few things usually begin to happen:  our shoulders rise up toward our earlobes, our jaws clench, our teeth grind, and the muscles in our neck, head, back and legs begin to tighten.

Unfortunately, we

Taking Lessons from an 11-Year Old

Posted in : Be Amazing!,Stress Less

Although we all know that worrying about what other people think about us, can send our stress levels through the roof, it can be difficult to “stop” caring about what everybody else thinks of us!

I recently spent time with my awesome nieces, 11-year old Emileigh and 12-year old Ryleigh, who reminded me that we should not be concerned with what others think … that we should just be our own amazing self … no matter what!

Emileigh recently went shopping and

Happy New Semester!  It’s that time again to kick off a brand new semester with a fresh start.  When I speak to college students about minimizing stress, I give them a blueprint that shows how to build a solid core foundation that prepares them to stress less and maximize success.  Once you lay a foundation with my core principals, you can build on it as much or as little as you like.  It’s completely up to you.

Spiritual Stress?

Two Trains.jpg

Have you ever been in a situation where you felt like you were being “attacked” based on what you believe?  I recently had someone try to strongly convince me how right they were about spirituality and how wrong I was!  In these very stressful situations when we are under fire, it’s best to remember that being right is not always the right thing to be.  I’ve written a few quick thoughts regarding the spiritual journey that can help all of us remember that we will not always see eye-to-eye on every spiritual issue — and that’s okay!

Two people can be on the same spiritual journey, but be at two separate places along the journey. Neither place is

Green Grass

Posted in : Quick Tips

 

I’m working on loads of great stuff this weekend, but still taking some time to relax, renew, and re-energize!  As I’ve been working, I thought about a really great lesson I learned years ago.  It’s some really sage advice from a friend of mine I was talking with one day about people who always think that the “grass is greener on the other side.”  His theory is great:  “If you think the grass is greener on the other side, try watering your lawn.”  Simple and well stated. Brilliant stuff!
