Stress Management

I have not been posting for a while, because I have been sick. I have not felt like writing posts with a sinus infection. I have also had a lot of stress in my life, which has probably made me sick, and made it harder for me to get over my sickness. It has been hard to get through, so a few of my next posts will be about stress management. I will go into more detail later but here are some quick tips. Read some Psalms:  David had some hard times and it is good to hear what was going through his mind. Also, pray . . . hard.

Having good body language, is a important part of being an effective leader. Whether people will admit it or not, everyone judges people by the way they visibly present themselves. Someone who has positive body language, looks like a leader. While someone with negative body language, looks unsure of themselves. No one wants to be led by a person like that. The great thing about body language is that it can be faked. Many times God puts people in places that they are not comfortable with. However, the people you are leading do not need to know you are uncomfortable. Mastering non verbal communication is an essential skill to be a good leader. This series of posts will teach you to develop leadership body language.
