UNDER PRESSURE? RELEASE IT: "Stress is emotional tension or pressure. Think of your emotions as the tires on your car. Too much pressure makes them explode, yet when excess pressure is released, they function much better. Intense emotions are a way of letting you know you're under too much pressure. Healthy ways to release pressure? Have a good cry, write in a journal, or hit a punching bag at the gym. Next time you feel under pressure...Release it, healthfully. It's a much smoother ride."
