Double stress: how to avoid stress from being stressed

stressJust when it looks like you have finally reached your maximum threshold for stress, there is something else you can now stress out about–stress. Yes, that is right, you can indeed stress about being stressed, and this “double stress” could possibly be more dangerous for your health. A 2013 article by The Atlantic details a study from the European Heart Journal which found that those who thought stress had an influence on their health had more health problems years later than those who were not as “stressed about stress.” As National Stress-Awareness Month approaches in April, get into the spirit by following these tips. No stress, though.

1. Make a list of your stressors.

It might be helpful for you to combat stress from stress by writing down everything that is stressing you out. While looking at a long list might not make you feel better initially, you can take comfort in knowing that as soon as you conquer a specific problem, you can cross it off. On the other hand, realizing that you only have a short list might take away some of the burden. The Mayo Clinic also recommends discovering your stress triggers so you can look to avoid them.

2. Organize, organize, organize.

The less you have to worry about being out of place, the less you have to stress about. Try organizing your room, your car, or your desk. Get rid of extra clutter and put all of the important things you need together in one place for easy access. Sometimes just rearranging all of your stuff will allow you to see things from a new, better perspective.

3. Look for the positives in your stress list.

Maybe you have a lot going on at work right now, and you are really not looking forward to the amount of time and effort you will have to put into it. Instead of looking at the negatives, try to think about the good that could come from the tasks you have to do. That big idea you are stressing about might just get you a raise or a promotion after you present it to your boss, and a little extra money could certainly help to cancel out some of your other possible stressors. Reforming thinking patterns can be difficult, but you can try some of Mind Tools’ positive thinking exercises here to get an idea.

4. Cut out negative things in your life.

Whether it is food, habits, or people, make sure to reevaluate their place in your life and replace them with positive alternatives. Do not do anything drastic, though–that might just make things worse.

5. Time management.

Have you ever created a monthly budget? Try switching it into a daily or weekly time budget to see how many hours you actually spend on an activity versus how many hours you do in reality. This insight will give you a better handle on refocusing your time if need be.

6. Remind yourself that you are a good person.

You deserve the best, but it will most likely take a lot of work and a lot of stress to get there. Repeat important words, phrases, or anything that makes you feel better out loud or in your head when you are feeling the most stressed. Prolific Living has 100 affirmations for a variety of situations, so test some out and see how you feel after a couple of repetitions.

Stress is tough, but you do not have to stress out about it. Here’s to a stress-free April!

How to avoid skimmers at gas pumps

Source: National Cyber Security - Produced By Gregory Evans

Credit card skimming at gas stations across Florida is becoming more prevalent. To avoid having your information stolen by thieves, pay with cash, says the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. In just the past two months, the agency’s inspectors have removed eight credit card skimmers from gas station pumps across the state. These skimmers are used to steal the credit card information from consumers, and the thieves then use the card information to make purchases in someone else’s name. The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services works to protect consumers from fraud and scams, and this week, March 1-7, is National Consumer Protection Week. Here are the department’s other tips about how to avoid skimmers.   Check to make sure the gas pump dispenser cabinet is closed and has not been tampered with. Many stations are now putting a piece of security tape over the cabinet to ensure it has not been opened by unauthorized individuals. Try to use a gas pump closer to the front of the store. Thieves often place skimmers at the gas pumps farther away from the store so they aren’t noticed as quickly. Use a credit card instead of a debit card. […]

Perfect security impossible, but businesses work to avoid cyber hacks

 Powered by Max Banner Ads  Growing instances of cybercrime — criminals penetrating the data systems of businesses, organizations and people — has many in Frederick County working to address the threat. “Because anything you do on the Internet can be hacked, perfect security is unachievable,” said Virginia A. McGovern, who teaches cybersecurity at Mount St. Mary’s University. “Businesses have several considerations when it comes to security, including cost, convenience and time,” McGovern said. “Another factor is making sure everyone is aware of what the security concerns are.” The attacks on major businesses such as Target and JPMorgan Chase resulted in hackers stealing confidential information on millions of customers. The problem creates confusion and a lack of trust from the public for businesses, Sarah Bloom-Raskin, deputy secretary of the U.S. Treasury, said in an address to the Texas Bankers Association in December. She reported that a survey of nearly 10,000 corporations internationally revealed almost 43 million detected cybersecurity incidents in 2014, up nearly 50 percent from 2013. What you can do Making employees aware of the problem and what to do and not do is paramount, McGovern said. “For example, a flash drive taken home from work and inserted into an […]

Transatlantic cables will bypass USA to avoid NSA spying

 http://www.extremetech.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/transatlantic-cables-348x196.jpg

Brazil and the EU has planned to launch joint venture to curtail the US monopoly over the flow of information. 135€ million project would allow Brazil and EU to bypass US owned transatlantic fiber optics cable. 
The initiative has been taken to ward off NSA spying on Brazil and European communications. The modern high capacity fiber-optic cable would extend from Lisbon, Portugal to Fortaleza, Brazil. The President of Brazil, Dilma Rousseff, said during the joint EU – Brazil news statement that privacy is the basic ingredient of freedom. It’s our responsibilty to upheld freedom. Dilma Rousseff was NSA’s victim. 
Her email were intercepted by NSA. President of the EU Council, Herman Van Rompuy, also suggested the importance of bypassing the US whilst avoiding any blatant public criticism of NSA activity. Brazil has also made it mandatory upon Facebook, Google and Twitter to store data of its citizens in the servers located within the country. 
Brazil also plans to create their own secure government email infrastructure to prevent spying. However, In reality though, Brazil’s transatlantic cable plans are unlikely to be driven by the desire to protect the privacy of individuals. It is much more likely to be about developing their digital economy and protecting both government and business confidentiality.
