And another stress reliever

Just in case you've had a rough day, here's a stress management technique recommended in all the latest psychological texts. The funny thing is that it really works.

1. Picture yourself near a stream.

2. Birds are softly chirping in the cool mountain air.

3. No one but you knows your secret place.

4. You are in total seclusion from the hectic place
called "the world,"

5. The soothing sound of a gentle waterfall fills the
air with a cascade of serenity.

6. The water is crystal clear.

7. You can easily make out the face of the person
you're holding underwater.

8. See! You're smiling already.
