Stressed? Push Your Pleasure-getaway Button
Your boss is driving you crazy. The kids are acting up. The dog is whining. The house is a disaster.
Your mind whirls, your heart races, your muscles tighten.
Oh dear. Excess tension and stress does not serve you. It’s not good for your body, mind or spirit.
It’s time to take action, to push your secret pleasure-getaway button.
You didn’t know you had a pleasure-getaway button? You do; everyone does. Just close your eyes and visualize it.
Your pleasure-getaway button may look like one of those red round buttons that start alarms shrieking.
But, fortunately, pushing your pleasure-getaway button does something altogether different.
Let the relaxation begin
The lights instantly dim. Soft music comes on. A glass of wine—no, it’s a flute of champagne—suddenly appears in your hand.
Or, if you prefer, an immaculately dressed butler offers it to you on a silver tray.
You didn’t know you had a butler?
That, my dear, is the beauty of your pleasure-getaway button.
When you hit your pleasure-getaway button, a transparent bubble surrounds this workplace stressor. He or she—bless him or her—is entirely unaware of this phenomenon. The bubble floats up and away. The boss-bubble gets smaller and smaller and then disappears. You can add a tiny “pop” sound if you wish.
If you have children, the most competent of nannies—a veritable Mary Poppins—sweeps in. She whisks away your needy kids and their needy pet. Whatever ages your children are, this nanny knows exactly how to nourish and tend them.
A team of apron-wearing domestic specialists work quietly and efficiently to dust, sweep, mop, scrub, vacuum, scrub, polish and organize your household.Continued on the next page
