A Seattle Longitudinal Study looked at
169 couples in 7-year intervals between 1956
and 1984 and found that the most stable
relationships were those in which people
were similar in intelligence, flexibility of
attitudes, social responsibility, and
education levels. Researchers also found
that after 14 years together, spouses with
the better grasp of verbal meanings and word
fluency had pulled the lower-functioning
spouses up to their level.
Hold hands whenever
In addition to creating feelings of
warmth and closeness, holding hands can help
inoculate you from stress. One study using
brain scans found that when married women were
told they were about to receive an electric
shock, just holding their husbands' hands
minimized their brains' response to the
threat. Women in the closest relationships
experienced the greatest decrease in
stress-related brain activity.
Kiss at least once
This intimate touch triggers the
release of the bonding hormone oxytocin and
lowers levels of the stress hormone cortisol
but that's not all. Researchers say that when
we kiss, we activate nearly half of the
cranial nerves that affect cerebral function.

Brain scans show that looking at a
photo of your beloved, especially in the early
stages of your relationship, activates a part
of the brain associated with pleasure and
reward as well as focused attention and
motivation. This same area is triggered when a
cocaine addict gets a fix -- so you could
literally get a healthy 'high' from looking at
a picture of your new love. When you're in the
throes of new love, your prefrontal cortex
also gets into the action, anticipating more
time together and planning future events.

Many people suffer from lower back pain,
especially in the area of the sacrum causing the
common complaint of sciatica. The symptoms of
this condition can be a cramping sensation of
the thigh or shooting pains from the buttocks
spreading down the legs. Sometimes, there can be
tingling, or a pins/needles sensation in the
legs and thighs as well as some complaints of
deep and sometimes severe pain starting low on
one side of the back.
One of the most common causes of sciatica is
when the nerve is being compressed by the
periformis muscle and can be as simple as
making sure that you are not sitting on a
wallet or other bulges in the back pocket of
your trousers. The periformis muscle can also
be easily compromised by a fall or other
trauma to the hips and buttocks area, causing
the muscles to be hypertonic and thereby
compressing the nerves.
Compresses with essential oils over the
inflames and painful areas would certainly be
a part of your treatment strategy. Cold
compresses can be very helpful when the area
feels warm to the touch. Hot compresses are
very soothing for painful areas, but should be
alternated with the cold.
Here are just a few of

Meditation - Awareness - De-Stressing
Step 1: Before you actually sit down to
meditate, you must first figure out who you are.
In a notebook or private journal, list your
likes and dislikes. Avoid making a list of
material things, such as types of cars or styles
of clothing; instead, make a list that contains
information about what makes you happy or
unhappy (for example, Likes: being with my
family, creative projects; Dislikes: working
late, cold weather grocery shopping). The
purpose here is truthfully evaluate yourself
to find out who you are, and more importantly
who you are not. Once your list is complete,
compare your likes and dislikes (who you are) to
your personal and professional realities (what
you do). Then ask yourself: do a majority of the
things that you like take place within your job
and home life? If so, good. If not, take note
and gradually start doing more of those things
that you like, and minimize and eventually stop
doing those things that you don't like. Easier
said than done? Certainly. But try it! Create
methods that gradually move actions or
activities that you like into your life, and
those that you don't like, gradually start
moving them out, or at least find ways to
minimize them. Little by little, the stress will
The second self-study exercise can be compared
to one of those home makeover shows. You can't

the clutter and then throw out the
Acceptance and Release
Step 2: Create a list of your worries and
stressors (for example, Worries and Stressors:
deadlines at work, others opinions and
expectations of me, wanting to spend more time
with family). The purpose of this exercise is to
truthfully evaluate what concerns can be dumped
from your "worry wagon." After you have created
your list, separate the stressors that are past
worries things that happened in the past that
you can no longer do anything about. Then,
separate from the list the stressors and worries
about the future the things to come of which
you have very little or no control. Next, tally
up what's left. The remainder of the list should
be made up of stressors and worries that are
constantly present in your mind things that
never seem to go away. Since you have
consciously made yourself aware of your stress
inventory, you must realistically let go
of the stressors of the past and future. Be
honest with yourself and recognize that they are
not in your hands, so you have to mentally throw
them away you must learn to let them go. Now,
take a good look at the list of stressors and
worries that are left. You need to learn to
accept them for what they are the
personalities of the people in your life, the
deadlines they are all simply must-have items.
You can't control them, but, unlike the past and
future worries, they are real. Accept them as
the here and now, and deal with them
individually as they come in and out of your
life. By taking these steps you are starting
down a pathway that allows you to be in
control of you.
Congratulations! You have just completed a
course in self-study. The way to continue to
de-stress, to maintain your new awareness and to
keep the worries in check is to practice
disciplines that allow you to continue to
discover, evaluate and improve your new
self-awareness. Meditation is one method of
practicing this self-maintenance.
