Stress management isn't a quick fix you use only in emergencies. Rather, it's a set of tools you can use to deal with the big and little issues that arise every day. Making a commitment to practice stress prevention strategies will pay off over time. Stress is more likely to rear its ugly head if you're not taking care of yourself.  Take time for yourself. Just 10 to 20 minutes of quiet reflection might bring relief from chronic stress as well as increase your tolerance to it. Use the time to listen to music, relax and try to think of pleasant things.

katec@herald-mail.com Cindy Thurston's father had his first open heart surgery at age 47. That's how old she is now. He had his second operation when he was 54. He didn't make it off the table, Thurston says. In 1999 Thurston was having health problems. She had a procedure called an angiogram, in which a fine tube was threaded through an artery in her leg up into her heart to check for blockages and narrowed areas inside coronary arteries. She learned that her main arteries were OK, but there was considerable - 40 and 60 percent - stenosis or narrowing in two smaller arteries.

"It's stressful, particularly on days when there's lot of calls. It gets depressing when a house burns down before the holidays or a toddler dies," said Bardona Woods, assistant chief of Washington County Fire and Rescue Communications.
