    Stress is...
    Part of life. Neither good nor bad.

    Something that I can overcome with meditation and relaxation.
    Frustrating. Can't live with it. Can't live without it.

    You are in a supermarket buying groceries for the week ahead. The store announces it is closing in 10 minutes. You are not done with your shopping. You…
    Rush to grab as many things as you can from the shelves as you make your way to the cashier. You don't want to leave empty-handed. You need food for the week.
    Zoom in on the top 5 things you need, and grab them. You are not leaving without getting those 5 things. Even if it means the security guard escorts you to the exit.
    You make your way to an alternative supermarket and complete your shopping there instead.
    Continue browsing as you were, make your selection and then leave. Getting the best deal is more important than completing your grocery list.

    When someone snaps at me, I
    Snap back.

    Spend the rest of the day thinking about it.
    Call someone up for comfort.

    You missed out on an important task. You
    You ask, "why hasn't anyone checked that this is not done?"
    Lie low and try and get it done, meanwhile worrying if someone would notice.
    Continue what you are doing until someone points it out to you.
    Drop everything else you are doing and get it done immediately no matter what.

    Take 30s to observe your body. Which statement best describes what you observe?
    My aching back needs a massage.
    Some parts of my body (e.g. hands or legs or toes) are moving. It has been a long time since I exercised.
    My body feels the same. No change from the previous day.
    I feel some tension or soreness in my muscles that I did not noticed before.

    Next, I would like you to write down a list of your accomplishments. You are permitted to ask me one question before you start. Which question will you ask me?
    Can I say no to your request?
    What do I mean by "accomplishments"?
    How much time do I have for this?
    How much details are to be written down, and whether I need to categorize them according to dates?

    At the end of the day, I…
    Don't make any plans. I go with whatever comes up.
    Heave a sigh of relief, and hope that tomorrow will be better.
    Soak in my bathtub to relieve myself of the tension of the day.
    Look at my schedule for the following day.
  • 8
    Let's talk about deadlines. Deadlines are…
    Great! They keep me on my toes to get something done.
    Optional. Sometimes it works and sometimes it does not work. It depends.
    Necessary. Challenges me to complete something within a time frame.
    Stressful. I don't like it.

    You are asked to participate in something you have never done before. You
    Hesitate, but hang around to observe how it is done by others.
    Usually say no.
    Check your schedule to see what is coming up next to assess if you have time.
    Jump right into it: you love surprises and trying out something new.
  • 10
    When you are in a heated argument, you…
    Voice out your point of view.
    Change the topic when you can.
    Keep quiet. Saying more will only make the other party angrier.
    Listen to what the other party is saying.
