Got Stress? We Got Help!

The term "stress" was first used by the endocrinologist Hans Selye in the 1930s to identify physiological responses in laboratory animals. He later broadened and popularized the concept to include the perceptions and responses of humans trying to adapt to the challenges of everyday life. In Selye's terminology, "stress" refers to the reaction of the organism, and "stressor" to the perceived threat.


Many families and individuals are feeling the stress of mounting bad financial news throughout the country, among their friends / family and sometimes within their own home.  The markets are making a natural correction by shedding unsubstantiated gains and excess brought about by poor choices.  Most all are being forced to reevaluate their circumstances, educate themselves on current/future events, lean up their operation if necessary and move forward.


When reflecting, researching and making the necessary life changes it is important to surround yourself with individuals and organizations that are positive, forward thinking and based in reality.  There are a few of these organizations and resources to help families and individuals which are referenced below.

May the pain you have known and the conflict you have experienced give you the strength to walk through life facing each new situation with courage and optimism. Always know that there are those whose love and understanding will always be there, even when you feel most alone. May you discover enough goodness in others to believe in a world of peace.

It is the content of the encounter that is more important than the form.
