Just Take the Test! Sapan!!!! September 04, 2006 3:50 AM

I remember when I first met Sapan, he would not even check out the stress test. he told me he didn't need it. I explained that it would be good for him to check it out if nothing else so he could refer others...of course the biggest factor for Sapan was how much time will this take??? The test only takes about three seconds...I know thats amazing but so is this test! Sapan finally checked it out and has been an advocate of this Dolphin Stress Test ever since! So glad to have Sapan for a friend! Enjoy!!!  [ send green star]

Not everybody knows who the dailyohm community is I would like to share the Dolphin test with. However you can find out or read one of the dailyohm articles about stress: November 17, 2004 10 Ways To Reduce Stress Living A Stress Free Life 1. Often we are so accustomed to stress that we are unaware of the precise triggers. Keep a diary in which to record situations that cause frustration or anxiety. Note what occurred, how you felt, and how you reacted, and then contemplate ways to avoid similar situations. 2. Endlessly pondering what might have been is not only stressful but futile as well. Acknowledge and accept that your life is what it is only for the present and be willing to commit to a step by step plan of active change for the future. 3. Reach out. Too many people suffer through stress in solitude though they are surrounded by a network of loving support. Friends and family have the power to diffuse stress with a simple kind word, embrace, or receptive ear. 4. Your own habits may be triggering stress. Two cups of coffee each day can activate the flow of adrenaline, causing tension and anxiety. Sleep deprivation and long sedentary periods can lead to heightened sensitivity to frustration. Exercise and a healthy diet are natural stress reducers. 5. Taking care of or working for others can often feel as much a stressful burden as a joyful challenge. Making time to pursue solitary activities and nurturing your private goals will help you be more at ease both at home and at work. 6. Take in the sunlight. Increasing your exposure to natural light, even in the chill of winter, encourages your body to release uplifting endorphins. A few minutes outdoors will leave you feeling more centered and better prepared to deal with unpleasant situations. 7. A positive, realistic, and non-judgmental attitude can ward off stress. When you expect too much from yourself or others, it becomes easy to feel frustrated or disappointed. Recognize and accept limitations and set achievable goals for yourself and others. 8. Just as stress negatively effects the mind, it negatively effects the body as well. When anxiety becomes palpable, deep progressive relaxation, in which muscle groups are tensed and relaxed one at a time, can calm breathing, reduce physical tension, and ease palpitations. 9. Give in. Compromise and flexibility can keep small disagreements from becoming large, stressful situations. When conflict arises, remain calm and rational, and attempt to meet others halfway. 10. Fun has the unique ability to take the edge off of stressful days. When the world seems overwhelming, take a play break and work at a puzzle, toss a ball, doodle, or tell a joke. Laughter not only reduces negative emotions, but also clears the mind.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
