Research showed that people in a nursing home that stroked a pussy, or other pet, reduced their stress levels enough to affect their health in a positive manner.

So stroke a pussy, or a dog. You know it makes sense.

I've stroked a few dogs in my time. I didn't feel better at all. My mates just laafed at me.

You can include pigs in that as well.

A nice pussy beats a dog any day of the week.

..on a more serious note, why not just take a break when you experience too much stress.

One of the reasons I trade is to avoid the 9-5 and spending the best years of my life working to make someone else rich.

I dont trade every day at all. I dont feel the need to. I think we are brought up with this 'I must work all the hours God sends' rubbish. Although you've got to put the hours in at the start (probably more than any other profession), later on, you don't necessarily have to trade all the time. Wait for your trade. If the market isn't doing anything or you dont like what you see - do something else. It beats losing money as your ego starts to tell you 'YOU MUST WORK'. If you want to be busy busy busy, go join the 9-5 lot, get on a smelly cramped tube every day blah blah blah.

Trading = freedom! Its supposed to be enjoyable (ok it can be boring at times). Forget the money. Go for quality of life (sure money helps here, but I know people who are very happy, yet dont have a pot to urinate in. Good for them!)

You can't stroke pigs. You might get locked up.
