by Donald Pelles, Ph.D., Certified Hypnotherapist I am stuck in traffic on the Capital Beltway, on my way home after dropping my wife off at the airport. It’s stop-and-go: “go” being 5-10 miles per hour. At this rate it’s going to take me half-an-hour or more to go the 3 miles to my exit. I am shouting to myself: I don’t want to be here. I am in the check-out line at the grocery. It’s the “express” line, but there are three people ahead of me and the clerk is taking forever with...

Dawn, a friend of mine, wanted help with her anger. As we talked, Dawn told me how she would sometimes fly into rages, especially with men, her teenage son in particular.

Driving is one of the most stressful things many of us do. Or to put it in a better way, for many of us, driving is a big stressor. What’s the difference? Stress is something we experience, a physiological reaction in the body: the adrenal glands put out cortisol and adrenaline, the heart speeds up, the breath comes faster.

Do as the heavens have done, forget your evil; With them forgive yourself. – Shakespeare, Winter’s Tale, Act V, Scene 1 “Unforgiveable, what he did!” My friend Marlena sits across the table from me in the Little Bakery, her bowl of soup half-finished.

If you’re someone who worries, well – don’t worry about it: all of us do, at one time or another.
