  • “Vacations are times to kick back and relax, but getaways can also be a source of friction among families, friends or couples, as back-seat driving or paying restaurant bills cause tempers to fray. Here are a few tips from Sonia Prades, a psychologist specializing in family relationships, on how to ensure a stress-free summer break.” – Stress-free summer: How to vacation with friends
  • “…stress can really do a number on your body. Too much of it can cause headaches, stomachaches, muscle tension, and fatigue, according to the Mayo Clinic. It can also increase anxiety, and totally ruin your mood. So yes — it’s totally worth taking the time to increase your moments of relaxation throughout the day.” – 11 Ways To Find Moments Of Relaxation In Your Day
  • “I’m not sure what impresses me the most in this video of workers painting the street. Is it the perfect angles drawn free hand with a tool that’s essentially a stick with an open box at the end? Is it the dude dropping the hot thermoplastic into that box, while his partner is drawing the letters? Or is it the exquisite, ballerina-like footwork of the two workers who make sure not to step on the letters they just made?” – Watching Workers Paint Letters on a Street Is So Soothing
  • “Although stereotype threat is not unique to women, we have singled it out as a primary cause of women’s greater workplace stress for a simple reason: the workplace is a minefield of negative stereotypes for women. This minefield exists because success in business and the professions — being perceived as a leader, effective negotiator, strong advocate, and keen evaluator — involves performing tasks associated with positive male stereotypes and negative female ones.” – Why Women Feel More Stress at Work
