. . . he would have

because, according to reports,

the late, great Yogi Berra said

he didn’t know if the naked bodies

streaking across the field

Ignoring Stress Can Be Stressful

A lot of attention has been given to the debilitating effects of depression. It’s been cited for, among other things, affecting our mental and physical health and exacerbating such conditions as heart disease and triggering other medical issues.

So does stress.

Most folks think they can handle it because they’ve coped with a day-to-day working life, raising a family, making mortgage payments and so on. But stress still lurks in the corners of their psyche if they don’t pay attention.

Exercise can push it aside. So can medication. Anything that helps you retain a feeling of quietude and optimism. Maintaining a circle of friends and socializing with them regularly also lowers stress levels.
