For Try This Tuesday at 5MFSN today, I wrote about my introduction to 1-2-3 Magic, which is a parenting/discipline method we are starting to use with Michael. A big part of its success depends on the parent keeping their own emotions and words under control, which can sometimes be difficult when you have a high stress level.
I recently saw an article on our local ASA listserve called Calm, Cool, Collected and Consistent, which goes into quite a bit of detail about how stress affects our bodies and how regular exercise such as walking can help. I tracked down the reference and was able to find it as part of a collection of articles by Susan Crum from Able2Learn. I would definitely recommend checking these out.
