Posted
by klhs klhs Member

Just in case you have had or are having a bad day, here is a stress management technique recommended in all the latest psychological texts.

The funny thing is it really works.

1. Picture yourself near a stream.

2. Birds are softly chirping in the cool mountain air.

3. No one but you knows of this secret place.

4. You are in total seclusion from the hectic place called "The World."

5. The soothing sound of a gentle waterfall fills the air with cascading

serenity.

6. The water is crystal clear.

7. You can easily make out the face of the person you are holding

underwater.

8. See, you are smiling already.!!!

Works for me!! :p :rotfl:

The secret is to make sure all the people you previously held under have floated away - their bobbing about is most distracting otherwise!

  1. how to keep a healthy level of insanity at work

    1. page yourself over the intercom. (don't disguise your voice.)
    2. find out where your boss shops and buy exactly the same outfits. always wear them one day after your boss does. (this is especially effective if your boss is a different gender than you are.)
    3. make up nicknames for all your coworkers and refer to them only by these names. "that's a good point, sparky." "no, i'm sorry, i am going to have to disagree with you there, chachi."
    4. send email to the rest of the company telling them exactly what you are doing. for example, "if anyone needs me, i will be in the bathroom. "
    5. "hi-lite" your shoes. tell people that you haven't lost your shoes since you did this.
    6. while sitting at your desk, soak your fingers in "palmolive"
    7. put up mosquito netting around your desk.
    8. arrive at a meeting late, say you're sorry, but you didn't have time for lunch, and you're going to be nibbling during the meeting. during the
    meeting eat 5 entire raw potatoes.
    9. insist that your email address be zena_goddess_of_fire@companyname.com"
    10. put your garbage can on your desk. label it "in. "
    11. determine how many cups of coffee is "too many."
    12. develop an unnatural fear of staplers.
    13. put decaf in the coffeemaker for 3 weeks. once everyone has gotten over their caffeine addictions, switch to espresso.

My husband actually did #1 --he said people got up and came to his cubical to see if he was on the phone!
