If you live in the US, I hope you enjoyed your holiday week.
I have a pretty funny story to tell but it most likely falls into the “you had to have been there” tales.
No doubt this time of year brings out the warm
and fuzzies.Â At the same time, its the season
when additional stress blankets the city and surroundings.
Heres what I mean.
Two days before Thanksgiving I was sitting at
a stop light.Â I happened to glance down
at my phone when it began ringing.Â The red light turned green for a split
Apparently, the guy behind me in the pick up truck was hurried.
He tooted his horn and I looked up and into my review mirror
to find this fine gentleman waving at me to move my vehicle.
Being someone who loves directive feedback from strangers, I inched forward
and eventually turned right like a turtle.
This made this “gentle man” more hurried and frustrated to the tune of more beeping.
Then while watching in my rear view mirror, this gentle man
revved his engines, squealed his tires and swerved out to my left into on coming
traffic over the double yellow line and pass me.
Luckily no cars were coming at us. Otherwise, that would have been a very bad decision
for this gentle man. All because he was in a “hurry.”
“Interesting,” I thought.
Then we continued down the same road.
He sped up and was about a hundred feet ahead of me.
I saw off in the distance the stop light turn from green to red.Â Eventually he stopped at
it.Â I grinned.Â I switched lanes to be side by side with him on his right at the light.
I saw his window roll down in his big red neck truck.
I wanted to hear what this guy had to say. So I rolled mine down.
He was in an older age bracket then myself.Â And what he began to spew
from his mouth, I cannot print here.
While expletives flew and his arms swung at the air… he proceeded to tell me
to, “All I did was beep my horn and then you had to do what you did.”Â Which was drive slowly making a right hand turn.Â More expletives then the light turned green.Â He laid another patch
and was gone.
I didnt say a word the whole time.Â Rather, I looked deep into
his eyes and sent him some holiday luv.
Although my heart was racing, my mind was clear, calm and focused.
My heart went out to the guy as he seemed very stressed and angry.
And this is a perfect example of people being in a hurried, stressed state of mind.
They dont take time to exercise and relieve the stress.Â They dont take time
to meditate and let the mind settle.Â Therefore they are powder kegs waiting
If it wasnt for my exercise programs, my blood pressure would have
gone north, arguing and bickering back at this “gentle man”.
My programs do wonders for your mental state to flush stress and worry
from your radar as easy as cleaning a white board with Windex.
They also are amazing for reducing your fat.Â If you
are less stressed fat doesnt cling to you as easily.Â Not to mention
all the good fat burning qualities that naturally come with a health program.
If you are just starting out, I suggest you get on with my Fat Burning
exercises learned a lifetime ago and ones I still practice to this day.

I wish you all the best for a stress free holiday season,
