Quote of the Month

"What is uttered from the heart alone will win the hearts of others to your own." ~ Goethe


Are you feeling overwhelmed? Have you reached your breaking point? Maybe you just feel a little bit stressed. Has your TODO list has grown out of proportion? Stress is a fact of life. We all experience these feelings at one time or another. How you react to this stress is what is important.

Do you totally loose it, scream and throw your hands up in exhaustion? Maybe you break down and cry. Believe me I have been there, and probably will be again. One of the ways you can take your stress level down a peg or two is to stay in tuned with yourself. Just the simple fact of being self-aware that your stress level is getting out of control will help you to manage your stress level.

When you begin feeling that tightening in your stomach, your shoulders hunching up these are the signs of onset-stress. Stop right then and there, sit back and close your eyes, practice deep breathing. These easily done things can help more than you would ever imagine.

Practice self-indulgence or find a hobby that you can turn to. All these things will help you cope. When things get overwhelming it is harder to gain back the control than if you merely listen to your body.

Beginning today listen to that inner voice. Take time for you and you will find time your friend once again.

Tip for Success

Cross it Out

Have you wanted to know how to easily create crossed out text on your website? Are you still using images to do that? As a web designer and copy editor I get this question often. I know just how frustrating this can be since the image never lays exactly even with the text.

Well here's the simple way to do it without going through any major changes. Simple add the usual brackets before and after the text you wish to have crossed out and in between both set of brackets type the word strike.

It's that simple.
