Our winning strategy for dealing with stress comes from LW in Newton, N.C.:
"I use what our grandparents and parents used to tell us when we were in elementary school and days seemed to drag by: "Just wait till you're older. Time will fly." I recently practiced this at the doctor's office, and it applies at work. Why stress over what's going on or coming? In a few minutes, it will be next week. It worked!"
