*Chicken Soup for the Soul: Say Goodbye to Stress!

*Everyone feels stressed out at some point in their lives. Many people have trouble getting their stress under control and are looking for help. We're seeking stories about people who have felt or feel stressed out, found a way to resolve their stress, learned to rethink their stress, improved their lives by handling stress, etc. We are interested in normal Chicken Soup for the Soul stories on this issue. Your stories will provide the inspiration and comfort to those who are stressed out, and Dr. Brown will provide the hard medical facts.

Here are some possible story topics, just to get your creative juices

* How you managed the stress of a new baby
* How you got through a divorce
* How you held it together while planning an elaborate wedding with 300 guests
* What advice would you give to someone who has a difficult work situation
* What got you through tough financial times without falling apart
* How you learned to let go of anxiety and worry
* How you turned stress around and made it work for you
* Learning meditation helped you feel calmer and more focused on the important stuff
* Silver linings
* And any other topic you think would be helpful to someone else who wants to get their stress level under control
