"Perhaps the way to handle stress is to give yourself permission to spend equal amounts of time thinking about how to enjoy yourself. If you've spent 10 minutes worrying about what you haven't done, spend the next 10 minutes thinking about some fabulous thing you can do for yourself or with your friends and family"Loretta LaRoche, Stress Humorist

STRESS
In survey after survey, Americans today identify stress as their number one health concern. More than 50% of adults in the U.S. report high stress on a daily basis. Untreated, stress can seriously affect health, work performance, relationships, and general well-being.

At the M/BMI we don't advocate stress elimination, or even reduction, because who of us can realistically eradicate stress from our lives? (Well, maybe if we lie on a beach now and again!) But we do offer a number of ways to help you access the relaxation response and manage your daily stress. If you believe that your health problems are stress related, we can help you with an array of programs and services.
