I Dare You to live Stress-free this Year

Did you know that your body releases a hormone called “cortisol” to help you deal with stress? Cortisol has negative effects on our body long term. My challenge for you is to live stress-free this year. Please add this goal to your New Year’s resolution. We all have one life to live and we can shorten our time on earth if we don’t reduce stress in our lives.

Here are some things I recommend you should do to de-stress:
1. Worry less-Worry doesn’t solve anything. In fact, it makes the problem worse.
2. Exercise-I know by exercising you are stressing your body but trust me, you will feel so much better if you exercise.
3. Sleep-If you don’t get enough sleep, it will affect your body at some point. Don’t play with sleep. SLEEP!
4. Laugh-Laughter is good medicine. Laugh and laugh again..
5. Do something you enjoy- if you enjoy playing soccer, hanging out with friends. Do it and make sure you include it in your schedule.
6. Count your blessings-You think you have it worse? There is somebody who has it worse than you.
7. Put things in perspective-see things from another angle for a change.
8. Learn to cast your cares unto God because he cares for you.

I hope you will add more to this list as you learn to live stress-free this year.

Interracial Dating Dilemma

Living in the South,
I see a lot of black men dating white women,
No problem;
however, I don’t see a lot of black women dating white men.
It is more popular in the north than the south, i hear.

Question: why don’t we have as many interracial relationships between black women and white men?

My attempt to answer this question:

1. Black women and white men aren’t open to date outside their race.
2. Black women and white men aren’t attracted to each other.
3. Social acceptance of interracial couples is still an issue.
4. Black women are are attracted to white men who act like black men
5. White men are attracted to black women who act like white women.
6. Black men are too fine for black women to look the other way.
7. White women are too fine for white men to look the other way.

Black women: what do you think?
White men: what do you think?
