GROW JOY, NOT STRESS...

A recent WSJ article highlighted research on secondhand stress, outlining how people who rush around busily can spread stress to others by causing anxiety (should I be rushing around too?), a sense of inferiority and avoidance (is my work even important?), and even resentment (are you putting your priorities above mine?).
 
So now we have to worry about making others anxious, in addition to managing our own anxiety!
 
The good news is that as social creatures every mood is contagious—even joy.  So during this season of joy, and love, and peace, remember to spread some secondhand joy!
 
Have a wonderful joyous holiday!
