How to Survive Holiday Stress

For many people, the holidays are a stressful time of year. Unexpected guests dropping by, entertaining relatives, and finding the perfect gift on everyone’s list are all daunting tasks. To add even more to the holiday pressure, we must still deal with our day-to-day tasks and responsibilities. Talk about unwanted stress!

Stress is the body’s normal form of defense. When faced with danger or discomfort, your body reacts in a ‘fight or flight’ mode as a form of protection. If your body is subjected to constant, repetitive and stressful situations, without time to restore itself, your health could suffer.

In a recent study, WebMd.com found:

  • 43% of all adults suffer adverse health effects from stress
  • 75% to 90% of all doctor’s office visits are stress-related ailments and complaints
  • Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) declares stress a hazard of the workplace
  • Stress costs the American industry more than $ 300 billion annually

In order to avoid the potentially harmful effects stress can place on your body, there are some simple steps that you can take to help manage your stress levels.

Q&A: How to prevent fleas and ticks on a dog?

Fleas
by kentkb

Question by Nick: How to prevent fleas and ticks on a dog?
Hi, so I was looking into adopting a dog. But how can I prevent fleas? I read that fleas and ticks can enter your house from your dog and infest it!! And I was planning on keeping the dog outside and inside to sleep and to hang out. But how can I prevent fleas and ticks! My backyard consist mostly of sand/dirt if that matters. (I live in New Mexico). Lots of my neighbors have dogs that they do keep outside and I’ve never seen them scratching, but this one dog I did notice had ticks! I don’t plan on letting any of those dogs come close to mine though. Any help appreciated thanks!

Best answer:
