The art of kissing

A kiss on the lips is probably going to be the first intimate thing that you do with your partner. Kisses on the cheek are a commonplace (not for us Muslim of coz..) greeting between friends and family, but a kiss on the lips is something that's generally reserved for lovers.

After the genitals, the lips are the most sensitive part of the body. They're full of nerve ending and can give and receive hours of pleasure.

Some couples seem to fit together well and kissing immediately feels perfect between them. Others have to work at it, and it's one of those activities that's often hard to encapsulate easily in words so becoming a better kisser is often a case of trial and error.

The key to perfect kissing is to start gently and explore. If your partner reciprocates then, continues, if they draw back, then do something else. Here are some popular techniques:


French Kissing

Start by gently exploring your partner's lips with your tongue and as the open up, gradually increase the depth and urgency of your exploration.


Nibble Kisses

You have to be very, very gentle with this one. Gently caress your partner's lips and tongue with little bites.

Chicken Kisses

This is when you gently peck your lover over and over again. As well as being sensual it can also be ticklish and stimulating.


Suction Kisses

Suck on your partner's lips or tongue, or even teasingly draw their breath through your mouth.


Teasing Kisses

Gently and teasingly kiss your partner on the cheeks, the chin, the eyelids, the nose-in fact anywhere but the mouth. It'll only be a matter of time before they pull you to their lips.



Remember kissing isn't just for lips. Being kissed all over can be wonderfully intimate and playful way of moving from romance to seduction.

P.S: To ensure you're kissable, keep your lips soft and smooth; always ensure your teeth are clean and your breath is fresh.

Scarlett Johansson

Never have words sounded so right as when spoken with Scarlett's two-packs-and-a-fifth-o'-whiskey rasp.

Remaja sekarang


Sanggup isytihar murtad
Oleh Mohd Jamilul Anbia Md Denin dan Sarah Zulkifli-Harian Metro, Ahad 25hb Mac 2007


Pelajar IPT kemaruk seks bebas guna nama bukan Islam ketika daftar masuk hotel bajet


KUALA LUMPUR: Gadai agama demi nafsu. Ada pasangan remaja termasuk pelajar institusi pengajian tinggi (IPT) yang kemaruk seks bebas sanggup mengisytiharkan diri ‘murtad’ selama beberapa jam dengan menggunakan nama bukan Islam ketika mendaftar masuk di hotel bajet untuk melakukan hubungan jenis.

Mereka didakwa sanggup menyamar berbangsa Cina atau beragama Kristian, semata-mata mahu mengelak daripada ‘dikacau’ penguat kuasa Jabatan Agama Islam Wilayah Persekutuan (Jawi) ketika melampiaskan nafsu serakah dengan pasangan masing-masing.


Difahamkan, taktik itu semakin popular di kalangan golongan muda berdasarkan pengakuan beberapa remaja serta pemilik hotel murah dan sederhana yang mendedahkan kegiatan itu.


Seorang pelajar IPT yang hanya mahu dikenali sebagai Helmi, 21, berkata taktik mendaftar masuk di hotel murah menggunakan nama bukan Melayu dipelajari daripada rakannya yang mendakwa tidak pernah ‘kantoi’ di tangan penguat kuasa agama.


Menurutnya, pada mulanya dia gusar untuk mempermainkan agama, namun akibat gejolak nafsu, dia tewas kepada hasutan syaitan.


“Mula-mula saya rasa takut juga, tapi itu satu-satunya cara untuk mengelak daripada dicekup pihak berkuasa.


“Bila sudah berjaya melepaskan diri buat kali pertama, saya rasa benar-benar yakin untuk mengulanginya,” katanya kepada Harian Metro di sini, semalam.


Menurut Helmi, taktik digunakannya tidak pernah gagal sepanjang tempoh melakukan penyamaran lebih 20 kali ketika mendaftar masuk di hotel menggunakan nama bukan Islam.


“Tapi jika ada ‘mata-mata’ atau ternampak seseorang yang mencurigakan, saya terpaksa membatalkan niat untuk daftar masuk di hotel berkenaan.


“Bagi memudahkan ‘kerja’, ada antara kami meminjam kad pengenalan milik rakan bukan Islam terutama dari Sabah atau Sarawak ketika mendaftar masuk di hotel,” katanya.


Selain itu, kerjasama pekerja hotel yang ‘budiman’ turut mendorong remaja sepertinya melepaskan diri daripada dicekup pihak berkuasa.Lebih memalukan, ada pekerja hotel sanggup dibayar bagi melindungi dan menutup mulut jika ada pihak berkuasa muncul di hotel berkenaan.


Gadis yang dikenali sebagai Lina, 19, berkata sewaktu sedang bermadu kasih bersama teman lelakinya di sebuah hotel di bandar raya, pintu bilik tiba-tiba diketuk pekerja hotel berkenaan.Berikutan itu, katanya, teman lelakinya bergegas meninggalkan hotel sebaik diberitahu pekerja hotel berkenaan mengenai operasi yang dijalankan penguat kuasa agama pada malam itu.


“Sejak itu, kami sering ke hotel berkenaan dengan mendaftar masuk menggunakan nama bukan Islam dan pekerja di situ seperti ‘faham-faham’,” katanya.


Sementara itu, seorang pemilik hotel murah di Jalan Raja Laut di sini mendedahkan kegiatan seks di kalangan remaja kerap berlaku di hotel itu, terutama pada hujung minggu dan cuti umum.Menurutnya, kebiasaan belia dan remaja Islam menempah bilik dengan bayaran RM70 untuk satu malam atau RM40 untuk tempoh beberapa jam.Dia yang hanya mahu dikenali sebagai Wong, 50, memberitahu pihaknya tidak meletakkan syarat kepada pelanggan untuk menunjukkan kad pengenalan ketika mendaftar masuk.


“Kami tak kisah sama ada mereka sudah berkahwin atau belum kerana yang penting mereka bayar sewa bilik sebelum saya berikan kunci,” katanya.


Dia berkata, remaja Melayu yang melakukan hubungan seks di hotelnya pernah ditahan pihak berkuasa sebelum ini, namun sebahagian daripada mereka masih berani mengulanginya.


Pengarah Jabatan Agama Islam Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur (Jawi), Datuk Che Mat Che Ali, berkata sehingga kini pihaknya belum mendapat laporan mengenai kegiatan pemalsuan identiti membabitkan nama dan agama di kalangan remaja termasuk pelajar IPT.


“Bagaimanapun, Jawi akan membuat operasi sekiranya mendapat aduan mengenai pasangan yang menggunakan nama bukan Islam untuk mendaftar masuk di hotel.


“Kami (Jawi) amat memerlukan kerjasama semua untuk membanteras kegiatan ini,” katanya.Menurutnya, pegawai penguat kuasa Jawi sentiasa memberi tumpuan serius dalam menangani pelbagai gejala tidak senonoh termasuk menahan pasangan yang melakukan seks bebas.


“Setiap bulan berpuluh-puluh pasangan bukan mahram yang ditahan melakukan hubungan seks dihadapkan ke mahkamah syariah,” katanya.

Kenapa sanggup murtad semata-mata kerana nafsu serakah? Belum habis dengan kisah 'mat rempit' melayu, timbul pula cerita remaja yang kemaruk seks.. cerita yang tak ubah ibarat membuka pekung di dada. Inikah bangsa Melayu yang diagung-agungkan?



p.s. Apalah nak jadi dengan remaja melayu sekarang..siapakah yang patut dipersalahkan? Emak Bapak? Guru? Kurangnya didikan agama? Tepuk dada, tanyalah selera....

All about 'Koi' part.2




PATTERN

As a koi grows, its pattern develops and grows with it. However, sometimes the pattern does not grow at the same rate asNot all koi have pattern, but where they do, the pattern should be well balanced across and along the body of the koi. It should be interesting and pleasing to the eye. 'Balanced' does mean that, say, patch of red scales on one side of the dorsal fin should be exactly balanced by a similar patch on the other side. It may be that a complimentary patch of another colour or of a different size is effectively placed. The same principle applies from head to tail. Too much colour at the head and too little at the tail end, or vice versa, will detract from the beauty of the fish.

As a koi grows, its pattern develops abd growa with it, However, sometimes the pattern dose not grow at the same rate as the base body colour. For example, if you are buying a small Kohaku (red on white), then the pattern should be 'heavier'. This larger proportion of red than white should result in a well-balanced pattern as it matures.



COLORATION


Whether a koi is patterned or not, its colour must be well established. When looked at closely, the colour should be 'deep' and 'even'. When colour 'thins' it is seen to go lighter. An example is the red on white of the Kohaku. A poor quality red will fade in places or look whiter than in the good areas. Colour can disappear; a Sanke become a Bekko, or a Kohaku a Shiromuji. This should not happen to a quality-bred koi, but it may occur if the fish is placed in poor water or experiences prolonged stress.

Colour can also be a distraction. Small spots of red or black, less than a scale in size, are known as 'shimis'. They can seriously detract from the beauty of a koi and disliked.




PATTERN EDGES


This another important aspect to consider. The edge produced where the scales of one colours overlaps those of another needs to be sharp. The effect observed when an underlying colour is seen through the overlapping scales is described as 'bleeding'. It is particularly noticeable at the leading edge of the coloured area. The Japanese terms for this effect are 'sashi' and 'kiwa' for the forward and rear edges respectively.


BLOODLINES


As you become knowledgeable about the hobby, so bloodlines assume a greater importance. They will ensure that you choose quality koi.


TATEGOI


Tategoi is the Japanese name given to a koi that they believe have not reached its full potential. They are sometimes referred to as 'unfinished' koi. As we have seen, koi pattern and quality can change. A young fish may not look very attractive, but when the bloodline is known to be good, it has the potential to improve. Even koi of 60cm or more can still be regarded as tategoi. It takes a trained and informed 'eye' to recognize the potential of these fish. Bringing tategoi to their full potential requires great skill and knowledge on the part of the keeper. it is important to note that if a tategoi is placed into poor quality water, its potential to improve will be greatly reduced.


CHOOSING A HEALTHY FISH

Any fish you intend to buy should be healthy. The sign to look for are clear, well-set eyes and no wounds, discoloration or bruising. All the fins must be present complete and clean. Look for a straight back and an absence of any lumps or bulges from the flanks. These may be due to unlaid eggs or a sign of something more serious.


Observe the koi swimming, breathing and feeding; erratic or exaggerated movement of the body or gills may indicate the presence of parasites. If a koi hangs about or does not feed, return to the dealer a couple weeks later to check on it once more before making a decision.




WHEN TO BUY KOI

In japan, harvesting koi from the filed ponds tales place in October and November. Dealer from around the world visit Japan to view and buy the pick of the newly harvested stock. Shortly afterwards, the chosen fish will start arriving back at the dealers' premises and be put on display for hobbyist to see the best koi that the dealer has to offer. However, most dealers have stock delivered to them all year round, so you can visit them at any time.


When you are choosing your koi, remember that competition fist must conform more tightly to the criteria outlined above. On the other hand, koi that find pleasing will be equally attractive in the garden pond. Assess the capability of the pond to house new addition and do not buy too many fish at the same time. The filter will need time to adapt to the extra stock loading, with consequent water quality reduction.


It is good practice to place a new fish in an adequate quarantine system for a few weeks before introducing it to the main koi pond. Prepare the quarantine pond to receive new fish some weeks in advance of the buying trip.

Sexual Arousal





Lets take a look at what occurs when you become sexually excited. Its believed that there are four physical stages in sexual arousal-and our bodies change as we gradually build up through them.

The stage are:


Excitement


This is when your body first begins to respond to sexual thoughts or sexual stimulation. Your heart rate increase as blood is pumped around the body beginning to fill all the small capillaries. As well as feelings of fullness in the genitals, it's also very common to get a stuffy nose. Your face and neck may become flushed and nipples become erect. Breathing becomes heavier as extra oxygen is pumped to your tensing muscles.


Plateau

This is the stage when your body is highly aroused and on the verge of orgasm. Your heart rate and breathing continues to increase as muscles increasing tense and are ready to release. Most people say that the longer they can stay moving between the excitement and the plateau stages, the stronger their orgasm will feel (breast may increase size by up to 50%).

Orgasm

The explosive release of tension. When you orgasm, your pelvic floor muscles will contract between five and 15 times at 0.8 second intervals. This may be accompanied by ejaculation-but not necessarily (some women may experience ejaculation. This may be from the **G-spot or excess lubrication being expelled by the contractions).

Resolution

This is the final stage of the process. Your body begins to relax and return to normal and men enter a *refractory period. But even now, the woman's body in particular experiences some pretty amazing trick (the cervix continues to remain open for a further 20-30 minutes).



*During the resolution phase, men experience the refractory period, when the testes are restocking and preparing to ejaculate again. Until they're ready, the penis will not respond to stimulation. The lenght of time ranges from a few minutes to hours or even days, depending on health and, more particularly, age.


**G-spot (not all women have one). You will find it about 2 inches inside the vagina on the front wall. Unaroused it may only be the size of a pea, but when you're aroused it can be as big as a 2p piece. You'll notice that unlike the vaginal wall which are smooth and silky, the G-spot feels rougher, a bit like the texture of a walnut.

All about 'Koi' part.1



Although koi were known in China, Japan has become the home of Nishikigoi. Japanese farmers developed koi from early mutations found in their stocks of common food carp (Cyprinus carpio) over two hundred years ago.


The word 'koi' was first used about 2500 years ago in China, but brocaded carp, or Nishikigoi as we know them today, were created in Japan and bred for appreciation. The phrase 'living jewel' was coined by the Japanese to describe the wonderful, colourful fish that graced their ponds. Some early specimens were given as gifts to the Emperor and many are seen in the public garden around Japan.


When yo first start keeping koi, it is probably better to choose a fish that appeals to the eyes rather than one you think might be a potential Grand Champion. As your 'eye' gradually improves, so will the koi you choose.


What to look for?


An appreciation of koi is not something you learn overnight, so the first fish you want to buy will probably be on a dealer's recommendation. It is generally the case that the more expensive the fish, the better will be its quality. Remember that koi are not kept for their colour patterns, there are some useful guidelines that may help you to make a good choices:




BODY SHAPE

Learn to differentiate between males and female koi, although this i more difficult when looking at young fish. The male is generally mush thinner than the female, although some are more rotund than others. A koi specialist will also be able to tell the sex by looking for milt (sperm) at the vent.


The female koi is described as having more body volume and is preferred. If you cannot remove the fish from the pond, a good indicator to look for a long, broad abdomen that noticeably turns in behind the ventral fins. If in doubt, ask the dealer the sex of any particular fish that you are considering.


Carefully examine the head and caudal region. The head and should be well rounded and not too short. The mouth must be well placed and not deformed. Eyes must not protrude too much from, or be sunken into, the head. The opercula (gill covers) should not be misshapen and must properly cover the gills. The caudal peduncle region is the area immediately in front of the tail, or caudal, fin. A greater thickness or breadth in this area is considered a good indicator for potential growth.


FIN

These important 'limbs' can have an influential effect on the overall look of the koi and must not be misshapen, split or diseased. Any colouration in the fins must conform to the particular variety in question. Large pectoral fins are admired.



SKIN AND SCALES

Skin is a very important part of a good koi. It should be bright and glossy, and have a deep lustrous shine over the entire body. This is not the same as the skin of the metallic varieties. Fukurin is a recent development in skin quality. At first sight, it can be confused with KinGinRin scalation, but on close inspection, it does not take the same form. Whereas KinGinRin appears to be in the surface of the scales, fukurin shows as a lustrous translucence around them.


The scales should be evenly spaced and well lined up along the length of the body. They should be clearly seen along the body to well below the lateral line. Sometimes scales may be missing or damaged. Ensure that none of them are raised, as this may be sign of illness.


In a leather or doitsu koi, be sure to check any scales along the dorsal and lateral lines for alignment, size and damage.

The meaning of 'P.S'

In my previous celoteh the curiosity of finding the true meaning of 'P.S' struck me, i wrote so much without knowing the true definition of 'P.S'. Despite ending my entry with P.S, i admit i am not very sure what is P.S (shame..shame on me). Now that I'm thinking of it, i proudly present to you the famous 'P.S':

According to Wikipedia, P.S a postscript (from post scriptum, a Latin expression meaning "after writing" and abbreviated P.S.) is a sentence, paragraph, or occasionally many paragraphs added, often hastily and incidentally, after the signature of a letter or (sometimes) the main body of an essay or book. In a book or essay, a more carefully-composed addition (e.g., for a second edition) is called an afterword. An afterword, not usually called a postscript, is written in response to critical remarks on the first edition. The word has, poetically, been used to refer to any sort of addendum to some main work, even if not attached to a main work, as in Søren Kierkegaard's book titled Concluding Unscientific Postscript.


In the age of e-mail, postscripts have become unnecessary: any modifications or additions to the body of a letter may simply be inserted within the e-mail before sending, though the convenience of a post-scripted addition is always available. Postscripts in e-mails and on message boards are most often used when the author wants to add something totally unrelated to the main body of text, and may otherwise break the flow of the message.


Perhaps the most common postscript found in love letters is "P.S. I love you!" This title was given to at least two popular songs, one by Rosemary Clooney and one by The Beatles.
P.S. is sometimes used as a purely stylistic touch, when it isn't really necessary.


P.P.S. is a "Post-postscript" and allows the letter writer to add even more thoughts after the first postscript. To continue, a third postscript would be a P.P.P.S. and so on, although these additions are rarely used in practice.








p.s. so there you have it, the 3rd P.S does exist after all ; P.P.P.S (post-post-postscript). Meaning, whenever the 3rd P.S being used, this will indicates either the writer had a lot of things in his mind or maybe he just simply a P.P.P.F (post-post-post forgetful) person.

A little bit of Dutch

Here some advice for the major DO's and DON'T in the Dutch business world. Obviously not everything is pertinent, as it depends very much on where he or she comes from.


When working or doing business with the Dutch:





Big DO's

  • Don't expect the Dutch to come for a drink after work, but do continue to ask...one day they will come;


  • Don't, when selling, forget to mention any environmental advantage of your product;


  • Don't expect (and certainly don't ask for) personal favours outside of a transaction;

Santai...

Two men in a Toilet






I was barely sitting down when I heard a voice from the other stall saying:



"Hi, how are you?"


I'm not the type to start a conversation in the men's restroom but I don't know what got into me, so I answered, somewhat embarrassed,

"Doing Just fine"



And the other guy says:


"So what are you up to?"


What kind of question is that? At that point, I'm thinking this is too bizarre so I say:

"Uhhh, I'm like you, just traveling!"

At this point I am just trying to get out as fast as I can when I hear another question.

"Can I come over? "


Ok, this question is just too weird for me but I figured I could just be polite and end the conversation. I tell him,

"No........I'm a little busy right now! "


Then I hear the guy say nervously...


"Listen, I'll have to call you back?There's an idiot in the other stall who keeps answering all my questions"

Cool or what!!

Safer Sex


A fulfilling sexual relationship can help boost good health, but sex and health are also connected in other ways that require serious consideration. The tow major areas of concern are contraception and protection against sexually transmitted diseases, especially AIDS.



THE RISKS OF UNPROTECTED SEX


AIDS is at present an incurable condition that is usually fatal in the long term. It is transmitted by having unprotected sex with someone who is infected with HIV, the AIDS virus. As there are no immediate symptoms of the disease, AIDS virus. As there are no immediate symptoms of the disease, it is not possible to tell who has already contracted it. This means that unprotected sex with any new partner carries a risk. The only way to be absolutely sure that you do not catch the HIV virus or AIDS is to use a condom every time you have sex. Some couple who do not wish to use a condom decide to take an AIDS test at a clinic for sexually transmitted disease to make sure they are both clear of the virus.



With unprotected sex, you are at risk not only from your present partner, but from each of his or her past four years. If you become infected you can infect your next four years' worth of partners, and any children they might bear, without even knowing it.



A recent survey carried out among young people showed that the majority of sexually active young women had taken responsibility for contraception by being on Pill, but that though they were aware of the danger of AIDS, young people often had sex with anew partner without a condom, particularly if they had been drinking. It is important to remember that AIDS is much more dangerous to your health than pregnancy, and unlike pregnancy, there were no way it can be terminated.



ALWAYS USE A CONDOM




The message is clear : anyone who engages in casual sex or is having sex with a new partner should use a condom even if contraceptive protection is provided by the Pill. Women as well as men are recommended to carry condom with them.



HOW TO AVOID AIDS :

  • Always use a condom


  • Avoid anal sex


  • Don't share toothbrushes, razors or any other instrument that might transfer blood from cuts or abrasions.

Lets take a break

I came across a couple of interesting toons yesterday and like to share some the ideas with you guys.


Actually what is it with married life. Yeah, we sure experiencing some bumps here and there along the way, isn't it not. Don't tell me it doesn't happen at all (that will be bull#@&%). Its normal! (sedangkan lidah lagi tergigit..) But that is not the point.


What will happen if a man get married? Getting kill? Yeah, don't bring up the 'commitment' subject. In fact, you are bonded to 'commitment' the second you say ' i do' or when kadi said 'Sah'. So, stop piling me up with all those craps. Back to our discussion, what is married life? I have been married about 5 years now and I still remember when i was attending my 'kursus kahwin', one of the instructors said.


"Kalau anda dan pasangan anda boleh hidup dengan pasangan anda dalam tempoh 4 hingga 5 tahun, Insya Allah usia perkahwinan anda akan berkekalan sehingga ke anak cucu..."


Actually, i dun really into that 100% tho, yup the fact was based on numerous studies on cumulative cases all over Malaysia. Where divorce cases (reported) mostly occurred during the first 5 years of marriage life. In other hand, the analysis report was projected on Muslim couple only, what about other races? other country? Other religion? So, i guess the fact tak boleh diguna pakai as a whole, conducting and finding solutions for miserable 'berantakan' Muslim couple maybe, but do not depend on that as surely.


So, what about married life? Only time could tell. Me? i cant tell either nor given any opinion. One has to live with it to discover its secret and how to deal with it. Different person has his/her own approach in dealing with their marriage problems. Results of coz obviously vary.


Was there any 'happy couple'? Some says Ajai and Nurul was the perfect couple. What happened to the 'perfect couple' then? Divorced ( i think they were married more than 5 years), Era and Yusri..wah! wedding so grand..'Wedding of the Year' la katakan (but at the moment Siti and Datuk K hold the title)..at the end..divorced and separated jugak. Datuk Siti and Datuk K? Im sure they wont last either. So, what will be the perfect ingredients in becoming a perfect couple? We knew sama cantik dan sama padan wont work, same interest/carrier and hobbies pun tak jalan. Darjat? Love? Kasih sayang? Loyalty?(hhmm...might works tho)..understanding? age differential?


For the third time, what is it with married life? You tell me...




What will you do if you have to deal your entire life living like Prince Charles and Camilla.


I dun say married life wasnt interesting. Matured mind as time passed by. Much more to learn along the married path. As long you know what point your standing on, then you will know how to get back to the right track.



p/s: Sometimes a man got to do what a man gotta do...and vice versa.

Tackling your stress


Kesihatan


Tips menguruskan sendiri tekanan anda


* Tarik nafas panjang/dalam beberapa kali. Ia akan membuatkan pernafasan anda menjadi perlahan sekali gus mengecut dan merehatkan gentian otot- otot dalaman


* Bersenam secara tekal – 20 minit setiap sesi, sekurang-kurangnya tiga kali seminggu. Senaman bukan sahaja dapat meningkatkan kesihatan emosi. Ia juga membantu mendapatkan fizikal yang lebih menarik sekali gus membuatkan diri anda berasa lebih yakin dengan penampilan diri


* Terimalah diri anda seadanya dan cuba menyukai diri sendiri. Bersikap realistik terhadap keupayaan anda dan tetapkan matlamat yang boleh dicapai. Cuba lakukan sesuatu yang dapat menimbulkan rasa kepuasan


* Bersikap positif dan belajar menerima kelemahan diri. Jangan berasa gusar mengenai perkara-perkara yang di luar kawalan anda. Berfikir secara positif dan renungkan kembali pencapaian dan kejayaan yang dimiliki apabila berasa tertekan


* Dapatkan sokongan dan bantuan sebelum anda berasa tenggelam punca. Kongsi masalah dan perasaan dengan seseorang yang anda boleh percayai seperti pasangan hidup, ahli keluarga, rakan-rakan dan pemimpin agama. Berkomunikasilah dengan mereka supaya mereka dapat membantu anda


* Bina silaturahim yang baik dengan ahli keluarga dan rakan-rakan. Biarkan diri anda berasa disayangi, dihargai, dihormati dan mempunyai tempat mengadu. Bersikap jujur dan bertimbang rasa dalam sesuatu perhubungan. – Amalkan pemakanan sihat dan tidur yang secukupnya


* Seimbangkan masa kerja dan bermain. Peruntukan masa untuk hobi dan rekreasi


* Kira dari satu hingga 10. Aktiviti ini boleh menjadikan anda berhenti dan rehat sebentar sebelum memberikan respons terhadap situasi yang memberikan tekanan


* Luahkan perasaan anda dengan menangis atau ketawa semahunya. Anda juga boleh menulis, jika mahu. Mendengar muzik juga boleh menenangkan


* Rehat dan tenangkan diri anda dengan mandi wap, berurut, meditasi, membuat renungan seperti membayangkan pemandangan yang menenangkan, misalnya.
Selain urut, anda juga boleh melakukan regangan bagi merehatkan otot-otot dan membantu mengurangkan ketegangan. Selalunya, otot-otot di belakang leher dan bahagian atas belakang menjadi tegang apabila anda mengalami stres.


* Dapatkan bantuan sekiranya diperlukan. Jika anda tidak dapat tidur, sakit kepala dan sakit belakang atau leher, pergilah berjumpa doktor


* Bantulah mereka yang memerlukan. Menolong seseorang akan dapat mengubah tumpuan dan perhatian kita dari masalah dan kerisauan yang dihadapi


* Ubah suai persekitaran anda untuk menyingkirkan unsur-unsur yang menyebabkan tekanan. Pilih persekitaran yang selesa dan bersesuaian dengan diri anda


* Tingkatkan kemahiran anda. Bersedialah untuk membuat sesuatu keputusan dan menangani masalah dengan berkesan. Lengkapkan diri anda bagi menjawat pekerjaan atau kerjaya yang memuaskan


* Uruskan masa dengan baik. Senaraikan perkara-perkara yang perlu dilakukan mengikut kepentingannya. Elakkan dari menerima kerja yang terlalu banyak


* Bijaksana dalam membuat keputusan. Pertimbangkan buruk baiknya sebelum memutuskan sesuatu.


AMARAN: Membantu diri sendiri adalah sangat berfaedah, tetapi ia bukanlah pengganti kepada bantuan profesional. Masalah tingkah laku dan emosi boleh memudarat dan membahayakan. Dapatkan bantuan profesional jika perlu!
