Just Google it...statistics have proven that stress is no longer something to be complacent about! It's important to make people aware now!! Too many people are dying from stress related illnesses, (and not enough from the natural causes of old age). We need to create more recognition that by developing inner harmony, stress can be kept in abeyance. I am doing my best to create some noise about it!!
THIS IS THE FIRST CAMPAIGN EDUCATING PEOPLE ABOUT THE DANGERS OF CHRONIC STRESS, INCLUDING THE HOLISTIC REMEDIES OF LAUGHTER, HUMOR & FUN!!
We don't need another triathlon and we don't need another War on Drugs or Poverty. We need a more progressive approach!!
WHAT IS THIS CAMPAIGN ABOUT?
By combining education with fun...
~ We motivate people to take notice of their stress levels and give them creative, fun ways to contend with it by cultivating their "Inner Smile."
~ We're sharing interesting, fun & creative ways to "take the edge off" and diminish stress. Not everybody can participate in a triathlon. 10 out of 10 community events related to stress, planned in 2013 in the Santa Cruz area are physical endurance challenges. http://www.medicinenet.com/stress/santa-cruz-ca_city.htm
~ We're acknowledging the importance of "other than the obvious" kinds of stress. People are more stressed emotionally than ever ... and even spiritually. Laughter, humor and playfulness are physiological, psychological and psychosocial learning experiences, and tend to heal the whole person.
~ Chronic stress first shows up, perhaps subtly in the body, and then without acknowledgment and attention...it becomes illness. It's sneaky.

YOU CAN DO A CAMPAIGN IN YOUR COMMUNITY TOO!
