Zap Your Stress...

...in thirty seconds...

Once upon a time, a smart professional daytrader (whose methods I studied a few years ago) happened to mention that a successful technique that he uses when he's lost a trade is to count to thirty...apparently this shifts your mind from a negative emotional state to a neutral rational one. Well, give me neutral any day over negative...at the very least. I tried this technique many times over the past six years during difficult periods of family health issues/crises and, I have to say, that it actually works. It kept me sane when I thought I wasn't...so it's my turn to share this little gem...thanks for listening.
