STRESS

What is stress?

Stress is your body’s way of responding to any kind of demand or threat. When you sense danger—whether it’s real or imagined—the body’s defenses kick into high gear in a rapid, automatic process known as the “fight-or-flight” reaction or the “stress response”.

The stress response is the body’s way of protecting you. When working properly, it helps you stay focused, energetic, and alert. In emergency situations, stress can save your life—giving you extra strength to defend yourself, for example, or spurring you to slam on the brakes to avoid an accident.

Stress can also help you rise to meet challenges. It’s what keeps you on your toes during a presentation at work, sharpens your concentration when you’re attempting the game-winning free throw, or drives you to study for an exam when you’d rather be watching TV. But beyond a certain point, stress stops being helpful and starts causing major damage to your health, your mood, your productivity, your relationships, and your quality of life.

Behind Those Eyes

Left Eye- 1986

http://www.nytimes.com/1986/10/13/nyregion/police-detective-slain-his-girlfriend-arrested.html

Something about that sound touched my pain…just like when those shots ripped through my grandfather’s frame…learned as a toddler that life wasn’t a game…another black man slain…another black families pain…so many tears that couldn’t be washed away by the rain…the sun can’t bring brightness to the darkness in my brain…..14 yrs and some change later it was deja vu again…as I held my baby brother I feared his mother was going through the same anguish as my mother…those fears held true…more tears fell too…situations that can break you are usually the situations that will make you…certain shit you just can’t shake loose…the more you struggle the tighter the noose…heads held high…won’t succumb to living like victims, shit we rather die…instead of sinking we decide to rise…but beware you have no idea the type of pain that’s hidden behind those eyes….

Watch “Celibacy: Why?!” on YouTube

What a great episode we had on our G.F.T. Radio Podcast. We discussed “Celibacy” and the reasons why people choose to go down that path. We discussed the difference between celibacy and abstinence, and whether it is a trend or just a way for people to manipulate others. The benefits and difficulties of celibacy plus many more. We had a great guest host, “Michella” from “Unforgettable Pleasures”. Also we would like to thank the callers for sharing their thoughts as well. Have a listen and check out our website,” http://www.gftradioshow.com”. We are on soundcloud, youtube, itunes, google play music etc.. For grown folks only!!

Quote of the Day

You can map out a fight plan or a life plan. But when the action starts, you’re down to your reflexes. That’s where your road work shows. If you cheated on that in the dark of the morning, you’re getting found out now under the bright lights.
