The Association for
Retarded Citizens wants
to make sure that if you
plan to have children,
they turn out to be
happy, healthy children.
So we suggest you
follow four basic rules
before you conceive a
child:
1. Follow habits of
proper nutrition.
2. Avoid alcohol and
tobacco.
3. Beware of too much
exposure to X-rays.
4. Ask your doctor
about genetic
counseling if mental
retardation of
unknown cause has
occurred in your
families.
For more good advice,
call or write your local
unit of ARC, the

SINGLE

EA FARRAH ■...

You are sitting at your
desk trying to put the finish-
ing touches on that report
you've been working on for
two months. It is due in one
hour. The phone rings and
your secretary announces
who is on the line. "Where
are you? I thought we were
supposed to meet for lunch at
one?" Your palms get sweaty,
your jaw clenches, your brow
furrows and your neck feels
tight. Your management of
this common situation deter-
mines whether or not it be-
comes a positive or negative
stress event.
There are as many differ-
ent ideas about what stress
is, as there are about what
it's like being single. Like
being single, stress can be
either positive or negative.
How you manage stress, and
how you manage being single
makes the difference.
Dr. Hans Selye in his
landmark work, The Stress of
Life, defined stress as "the
rate of wear and tear in the
body." The sweaty palms,
rapid heart rate, upset
stomach, clenched jaw and
shallow breathing call into
play the fight or flight re-
sponse. When the event is a
life or death struggle, this is
an appropriate response as
survival is at stake.
People are called upon to
adjust to new situations daily
and so the reaction to change,
stress, is ever present and the
fight or flight response is
natural. The counterresponse,
the relaxation response, aids
in the prevention of overload
and the cumulative effects of
stress.
The development of many
diseases has been linked to
the cumulative effects of inef-
fectively managed stress. The
increase in stroke, heart dis-
ease, hypertension, ar-
therosclerosis and substance
abuse is testament to this.
Using the relaxation response
when survival is not at stake
balances the fight or flight
response, and balance leads
to being in control.
Stress is an integral part of
life, and positive stress aids
in peak performance, focus
and concentration. As soon as
this is accomplished, the body
and mind need to relax.
Negative stress keeps the
body set for attack long after
it is necessay. In this contin-
ued state, the risks of de-

veloping stress-related dis-
eases and approaching burn-
out are greater.
Effective stress manage-
ment necessitates the aware-
ness of which stressors are
positive and which are nega-
tive. Which situations trigger
these reactions are important
to know.
Does being stuck in traffic
mean a faster heart rate, or
can it become time to think
about the next vacation? Do
your muscles automatically
tense and your stomach be-
come upset when someone is
yelling and can you use that
tension to motivate yourself
to complete that task and
leave quickly so that your
time with that person is shor-
tened? Does being watched at
work get associated with a
clenched jaw and can you
fantasize that you are being
photographed for the Person
of the Year award?
The single person's stres-
sors may elicit the fight or
flight response on a more
consistent basis leading to a
possible over-accumulation of
ineffectively managed stress.
Becoming aware of the
triggers, stressors, and reac-
tions is only the beginning of
effective stress management.
The next step is learning
what works for you in given
situations. Two methods of
relaxation can be used any-
where at any time. The third
is a method to help differ-
entiate tension from relaxa-
tion.
The first method, relaxa-
tion in the form of deep brea-
thing, can be learned within
15 minutes. One of the body's
automatic reactions to stress
is rapid, shallow breathing
and by breathing slowly and
deeply, the relaxation re-
sponse is activated. Place
your hands firmly on your
stomach and inhale slowly
and deeply through your
nose, letting your stomach
expand as much as possible.
When you've breathed in as
much as possible, hold your
breath for a few seconds be-
fore exhaling.
Purse your lips as if you
were going to whistle to con-
trol how fast you exhale.
When your lungs feel empty,
begin the inhale-exhale cycle
again. With practice, you can
use this exercise without
holding your stomach and
pursing your lips.
The eecond method, clear-
ing your mind, helps relax -
your body as well. Use the
slow-deep breathing exercise
