Bar Bulletin question: How do you handle stress?


"I think it is important to find different outlets for stress. For example, sometimes my outlet is spending time with my family or zoning out in front of the TV. Other times, my outlet is exercising. Lately, I have found a morning run really helps relieve my anxiety and stress and helps me mentally prepare for the day."

"For me, the key to managing stress is keeping things in perspective. I have great friends who help me get through tough times and a husband with a great sense of humor. Also, chocolate."

"One of the ways I manage stress is by exercising. While it may seem like there is never enough time in the day to get to your personal needs, it is essential that you take care of yourself. About a year ago, I signed up for a personal fitness membership at River City Fitness in Ponte Vedra. This workout group has become my outlet to relieve stress and feel confident. The classes start at 5:20 a.m., so they force me to wake up early and start my day with a productive and positive outlook."

"I try to manage stress by exercising regularly and playing golf. I wish I could say that I meditate or do yoga, but a weekend trip to St. Augustine always does the trick."

"I manage work stress in large part by spending time with my family. My wife, Leala, and I have been married 16 years this month and have four kids between 8 and 12. I unwind playing with my kids —whether in the pool, zip lining in our backyard, vacationing in North Carolina or scalloping in the Panhandle."

"My tried-and-true recipe is to trust Jesus, work hard, hang out with happy people and read Carl Hiaasen."
