    If you could instantly remove just one stressor from your life, what would it be?

    Traffic. I would love to zip to and from work with nothing but open road in front of me. There's a scene in Bruce Almighty where he parts cars in front of him. If I had that kind of power only once, it would be well worth it.

    Quite simply and unequivocally the stressor I would remove (world-wide) would be the physical and mental state of being in a hurry. If you contemplate this, I believe you will begin to understand that this is the root of most-all misfortune...

    Hmmm. I think . . . that would have to be . . . renewal of professional license by the end of the year that includes completion of several hours online ceus. (Sigh) I know I'll get it done but it's such a burden during the holidays. Ugh :-(

      I finished my professional renewal last May when there are few holidays. I feel for you.

    Right now we are dealing with my mother-in-laws estate. Everything was in a trust which was supposed to make it easier and we have not found that to be true. The whole thing has been one stressed phone call after another.  It's been a  nightmare...so my current desire would be to eliminate that stress from our lives.

    Being able to instantly remove man-made noise would be wonderful.  We wake up in an urban environment and the noise is there: traffic, helicopers, jet aircraft overflying.  Then on go the motor-mowers and blowers and electrical hedge cutters.  Or maybe the fellow next door is working with a grinder or tuning his car or worse, his Harley-Davidson.   

    Even on a lesser scale we have the radio on - generally with no one really listening to it - or the television.   We try to mute the commercials but generally we overlook it and have to hear them ( if not listen) anyway.

    There's the hum  of airconditioners and the sounds of bells and sirens.  It's ongoing.

    Do you know that most people born into an urgan society can't stand silence?  Yep.  They even take their radios when camping in the countryside.

    To summarise: man-made noise - apart from maybe really good music, are all awful sounds compared with what Mother Nature or God gave us.

      I adore quiet and the sounds of nature. When my husband comes home the first thing he does is turn on the tv. If I get home first I enjoy the quiet or put on some sweet music.

    I wish there could be just one stressor, but there are several. The noise of vehicles, machines etc. Music I love, but loud music I can not handle. Then there is always some or other stressful thought going on in mind dear ones health and safety, paying bills etc.

      I sometimes think that my mind makes the most noise....

    I wish I'd been born wealthy so I didn't have to stress about money so much. Unfortunately, I had to settle for being born startlingly handsome.

    I'd stop work - if I could it would help relieve allot of stress and continue enjoying life by doing more hubs and some gardening to relax.

    Worry. I worry about everything. I spend most of my day doing so.

    Definitely money, or lack thereof. I know it's not true, but sometimes it seems like if you had enough money everything else would be OK.

    I would remove people who cause dissension. I have very little time for gossipers, slanderers, and people who thrive on creating confusion and disorder. My peace comes at a premium, so anything that's not "peaceful" has to go.
