Minimize holiday stress: 5 tips to unwind

first_img The Anatomy of Fear From HCA North Florida DivisionThe holiday season can be a wonderful time of year. But even those who thrive on shopping, celebrating and entertaining can get overwhelmed by holiday obligations and expectations. It’s not uncommon to feel stressed out or depressed this time of year. Holiday demands can strain relationships and finances, which can lead to real physical consequences.That’s because when we’re stressed, we are more likely to sleep too little, eat or drink too much, or make other unhealthy choices. To cope with seasonal stress, try these five simple remedies:Laugh it off. A hearty “ho ho ho” fights stress with a one–two punch that reduces stress hormones and increases feel–good hormones. Need inspiration? Search “laughter yoga” videos online and follow along for 10 minutes. Laughter yoga combines yoga–style breathing with exercises that bring out your inner silliness. Smiling, even if you are in no mood to grin, can also improve your mood and sense of well–being, say experts.Meditate. You don’t need to take a meditation class to enjoy the rewards of contemplation. Just find a quiet spot, sit still and close your eyes. For five minutes, focus your mind on your breathing, an object, or a pleasant word or phrase. When distraction creeps in, pull your thoughts back to your focal point. When your heart and breathing are elevated by stress, meditation helps you relax by slowing them down.Get crafty. Jewelry–making, woodworking, knitting, scrapbooking and other hands–on projects are good for the mind and body, says Kelly Lambert, Ph.D., neuroscientist and author of Lifting Depression. Holiday gift–making should trigger the release of endorphins and serotonin, the body’s natural “feel–good” chemicals. Of course, only take on projects if you have time to enjoy them. Otherwise, holiday deadlines could end up raising your stress level.Give thanks. A Kent State University study found that students who wrote letters of gratitude to people in their lives were happier and more satisfied than those who did not express their thanks. Other research has shown expressive writing can help improve your sense of well–being. Holiday cards are a good way to tell some of the special people in your life what they mean to you. Try writing one every day or so.Exercise. Exercise stimulates the body to release chemicals that counter stress hormones like cortisol, which at high levels can harm your heart, cause sleep and digestive problems, or contribute to depression. Sneak in 10 minutes of walking or other exercise as you go through your day.Whether you try one of the tips outlined above or you have other ideas for how to de–stress during the holiday season, what matters most is that you take the time for yourself each day. While you may be focused on others more than ever this time of year, it’s important to care for yourself too. Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Please enter your comment!

The project is based on two specific conditions: – on one side the client’s needs, looking for a small and intimate space; – on the other a small, special and precious place. The alpine landscape dominates the place: it becomes evident the condition of a privileged and unique space.

Great is the land, the landscape: small is the place, the space. There is a mutual relationship that inspires the design process. What is the role of the “room” in relation to the landscape? How the landscape reflects, “adopts” the room? The point of view changes in a frenzied search for balance. Save this picture!© Marcello MarianaA micro retreat for weekends, a place for contemplation, a clearing house from a daily hectic urban condition. A small wooden box fits between two existing buildings. Inside, the wood shows its nature in warm tones; outside, the surface treatment with silver-gray paints echoes the colors of the centenarian woods of rural buildings. The wooden panels, assembled with different development of the vein (horizontal – vertical), react to sunlight returning different geometric compositions. Save this picture!© Marcello MarianaOutside, almost in a mimetic condition, the new wooden facade seems to hide itself, in the shadows of the landscape, and then to confirm, with sunlight, its presence, dazzling, throwing a visible signal at a long distance. Inside, the space becomes a privileged place overlooking the landscape. Almost an abstraction, an estrangement that allows to emphasize the privileged status of the “spectator”. A second level of thinking regards the stability of the building’s image in the landscape: spaces lived for short periods consolidate their status of “closed” places. Save this picture!1st floor planThe light that reflects differently on the wooden panels changes the appearance in colors and tones, the uninhabited façade lives of its own life. Finally, the project underlines yet another ambiguity: as a wooden container, as furniture and furnishing, it is “a wardrobe in the landscape”. The project operates in small size, uses simple devices to find a contemporary language within strongly characterized environmental contexts.Save this picture!© Marcello MarianaProject gallerySee allShow less’Latest Works’ Lecture by Manuel Aires Mateus at MITArticlesMONU Magazine New Issue: Non-UrbanismArticles Share Architects: ES-arch Area Area of this architecture project Houses ArchDaily Area:  35 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” Photographs CopyHouses•Madesimo, Italy Save this picture!© Marcello Mariana+ 16 Share Wardrobe / ES-archSave this projectSaveWardrobe / ES-archlast_img read more

Lynching of Trayvon Martin goes unpunished

first_imgWorkers World statement: One more travesty of justiceDetroitWorkers World Party joins with millions of people inside the U.S. and around the world in condemning in the strongest terms possible the “not guilty” verdict in the second-degree murder trial of George Zimmerman. Zimmerman fatally shot 17-year-old Trayvon Martin on Feb. 26, 2012.  Martin, who was African American, was lynched not once but twice.By now, everyone knows that Zimmerman, a wannabe cop and watchman in a gated community in Sanford, Fla., stalked Martin because of who he was — Black — and what he wore — a hoodie.  Even after being told by a police dispatcher not to confront Martin, Zimmerman attacked him anyway and then killed him. Zimmerman was allowed to walk free for six weeks by the police and powers-that-be until massive protests nationwide forced his arrest.That was the first lynching of Martin.The second lynching of Martin took place during the court proceedings. The trial judge put restraints on the prosecution that kept evidence from being presented that Martin was racially profiled by Zimmerman, who had a known history of viewing Black youth as “suspicious.” Zimmerman’s defense team was given free rein to put Martin on trial as the “aggressor” and portray their client as the “victim,” thus justifying Martin’s killing.But Martin was the victim, not Zimmerman, and had the right to defend himself by any means.The judge even allowed the defense to show the jury during the summation an outrageous fictional animation, based solely on Zimmerman’s account, of Martin attacking Zimmerman. And then there was the jury of six women, five of whom were white and one Latina. Not one Black person was picked for the jury, even though Sanford’s Black population is close to 29 percent.In an all-too-familiar scenario, Trayvon Martin, a mere 17-year-old with a can of iced tea in one hand and a bag of Skittles in the other, a young person looking forward to a bright future, had his life tragically cut short by a racist society where youth of color are branded as less than human. It is a grim reminder that the legacy of slavery and racist oppression is alive and well in the U.S., where vigilantes like Zimmerman as well as the police have declared war on poor youth, especially if they are Black, Latino/a, Arab, Muslim and Indigenous.So the jury, the judge, the defense and even the prosecution, who had smirks on their faces during a press conference following the verdict on July 13, were willing players in an unjust “justice” system, which is structurally poisoned with venomous racism and other forms of class bias to keep the multinational working class divided and weak.How else can one explain the double standard in which well-paid Black football athletes like Michael Vick and Plaxico Burress each have to spend several years in prison — one for abusing dogs, the other for shooting himself in the leg — while a bigot like Zimmerman spends not one day in prison after admittedly killing a human being just because he felt “threatened”? This goes beyond the boundaries of reason.The real killer of Trayvon MartinThe capitalist system is ultimately responsible for the murder of Trayvon Martin and countless others whose only “crime” is being a youth of color.  Institutionalized racism, based on centuries-old white supremacist ideology, is central to keeping a tiny minority of the super-rich in power by impoverishing more and more workers with low wages, foreclosures, school and hospital closings, unemployment, underemployment, and mass incarceration and deportations.The Occupy Wall Street development of almost two years ago was an important barometer showing that capitalism can no longer offer a once-privileged sector of white youth any bright future of prosperity. These youth are becoming more conscious of the fact that they have more in common with poor, working-class youth, especially youth of color, than with the corporate bankers and bosses popularly known as the 1%.If capitalism is slowly but surely coming to a dead end, what can replace it? There is only one long-term solution: organizing on a massive scale to uproot the present system of capitalism and create an economic system that can lay the basis for eradicating the deep-seated oppression of people of color, women, lesbian-gay-bi-trans-queer people and immigrants.Capitalism needs to constantly foster inequality and prejudices in order to keep its hold over all the workers that it exploits. To end exploitation and all forms of oppression, we need to fight for socialism, where the workers would become the owners of the vast means of production, break the chains of wage slavery and any remnants of feudal relations, and use their ability to work to meet the needs of all society through cooperation. The struggle, not elections, is the only instrument by which such true equality can be realized.While fighting for a socialist future is the goal of many revolutionaries, including those of us in Workers World Party, it is important to stand in solidarity today with those who are out in the streets demanding justice for Trayvon Martin in all forms of protests, whether peaceful or militant, large or small. How this righteous anger plays out in the coming days, weeks and months remains to be seen.But one thing is for sure. The image of Trayvon Martin will continue to be a national symbol of what every youth of color and their families fear in the U.S.: being demonized and dehumanized by legal and extra-legal terror under capitalism, fueled by racism.Justice for Trayvon Martin must become a clarion call to all who want to unite every struggle in a show of class solidarity — like a mighty fist raised against a system that can offer nothing but oppression, racism and war.         FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
