scaring yourself vs skin creams
Of all the things for skin treatment, scaring yourself is of the things I would have never thought.  I guess I will try to scare myself more. My skin sometimes gets very dry. Does this mean no more skin creams?  Pharmaceutical companies may not be so happy with these findings

Re: scaring yourself vs skin creams
After going 20 rounds with "tech support" to get my new computer working right, I think I'm done with good, bad or any other stress for the time being....

I'm alergic to cats ... so maybe yoga with a killer clown?

Re: scaring yourself vs skin creams
@pedro- Ha! Interesting. I suuspect the cream makers will just respond with new names. Get ready for a whole new line of "Skin Scare Products":

 

Angst

Scare for Men

New and Improved Terror (Now wiith acai berries and rusty nails)

Oil of No Way

Secret for Women (the secret is what we made this with)

Dismembered Body Bars

Real Poo (as opposed to sham poo)

Both at once
@Dave: If I attempted Cat Yoga I would accomplish two goals in one. The relaxation of the yoga and the adrenaline surge from fending off my cat, who would surely go into attack mode if I tried any of those poses...I'll let you know how it works out.

Either way it is scary
You do need a certain amount of sress to perform well. Athletes need it as do public performers. Having said that would some one who is performing in a Broadway show every night have chronic stress? Or a baseball player who plays usually 6 days per week? Certainly the regular working stiffs have stress from their jobs, commutes and then at home. Where does it end? I have to try Yoga!

Re: Either way it is scary
@tgjkg- Hrm...I suspect that performers get used to certain types of stress and it isn't stress anymore. For instance, I'm sure the first 5 or 10 projects a softwsare developer does are stressful because they want to keep their job. After a while they get established and cool down. I assume Broadway performers are the same way. 

But it is true that ballplayers breakdown over the course of a season. I assumed it was from the pounding. Though i suppose it might not be. Good question.
