subset: n. a thing            duration: n. a period of time

In one sentence here is how to reduce stress:

TAKE SOME TIME OUT TO DO SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT  or  STOP YOUR WORK FOR DURATION AND DO A DIFFERENT SUBSET(S)!!!!!!

Not all jobs permit you to take about 5 minute breaks every hour from the stressful activity which you are doing but taking breaks is how you can refresh your mind and then successfully continue on with the stressful activity.

During a strenuous exercise routine, resting or taking a break to recharge your body’s energy supply is the smart thing to do.

During strenuous or stressful mental exercise, taking a break to get the mind out of it’s over excited state is the smart thing to do.

In an office setting where you are sedentary most of the time take a break and

walk around,

do in place exercises suchas deep knee bends, jumping jacks, running in place, pushups, and stretching,

meditate,

daydream,

call home and chat briefly,

sip on a unsweet beverage,

eat an unsweet snack of fruits and nuts,

puff on a cigarette but don’t inhale,

talk to a coworker who isn’t busy doing something important,

or do more than one of the above suggested activities.

In some jobs it may be possible to take a break every two or three or four hours for more than 5 minutes so do it whenever possible and do one or more of the above suggested activities.

If you like this evergreen blog read more of them and read one or more of my evergreen books, especially COMMON SENSE.

Enjoy!!!!!!
