Here's a graphic on the growing American Stress Crisis, based on a recent APA study of thousands of Americans
Today I was listening to NPR as I was driving. The discussion centered on new approaches to addiction — and the fact that addiction is now being classified as a “chronic brain disease.” Experts said that 22 million American’s suffer from it. (Add this to the 133 million Americans suffering from a range of other chronic diseases and the tally rises to 155 million Americans facing chronic health issues.)
And guess what one of the successful new treatment strategies for this newly labeled “chronic brain disease” turns out to be? What do practitioners who treat patients with addiction feel is critical for patients if they hope to return to a state of well-being?
“Manage their thoughts, ” said both experts being interviewed. The phrase kept coming up: “Managing your thoughts plays a role in recovery.”
Manage the negative Floating Brain. Monkey Brain. The constant chatter of worry, the laser focus on what’s wrong with whatever is happening, or wishing for something else to be happening. Nursing anger, frustration, fear, anxiety, resentment, regret. Ruminating. Getting caught in those states of mind that are linked to setting forth a toxic cocktail of inflammatory hormones and chemicals from brain to body to cell.

I've been to China... just briefly...
But since I'm part of the business structure that offshores jobs there... I'm concerned.
I'm not against doing business with China. I'm against a non-regulated, highly tilted bias in China's favor. IP laws for instance. China signed on to honor copyright of music and software - they don't enforce it. Again, they are very 1950s. So, if we have to buy HERO (the movie) for $19.00 where royalties make it back to Zhigy (actress) and friends but yet, they get to buy Starwars for 15 yuan (that's about $2.00 US) but never pay a cent in royalty. That's unfair.
Where they prop up is that we get goods very cheap from China - one reason that exchange rate is go beneficial is because China cannot float their currency on the international market...
