PROVO, Utah -- The over-scheduled, over-involved and over-whelmed Mormon woman needs to do two things to de-stress, said two speakers at the recent Women's Conference at BYU: simply life and ask for God's help. "God placed us here to succeed," Sarah Westerberg said. "But mortality will cause stress. It's a natural byproduct."
Her advice included...letting go of what cannot be controlled and ridding life of perfectionism.
She suggested adding two words to a working vocabulary: "Who cares?"

I'd say that the key source of the above is spiritually rooted.
Hence, that's why the ministry, Truth in Love ministry to Mormons, based in Idaho, established late last year a billboard campaign aimed at Lds women.

**must not make fun**
**Must not tell lame joke**
Tips on reducing stress does not belong in the “Religion” forum, no matter how desperate you are to stretch it into a controversy.
If it bothers you don’t press the everything button. Just go to “news”.
With simple frocks and elaborate hairstyles reflecting femininity carried as a burden, fundamentalist Mormon women face the media earlier this month.
The article is appropriate for the Religion Forum.
When my aunt (LDS) was stressed she told me that she looked around and realized that when the kids were grown they would not thank her for a clean house but because she took them to the park. I never forgot that. It was good advice. (Ok, she hired a cleaning crew that came every other day but she was right in theory)
All what they said and a sip of beer.
Sometimes one just needs a stiff drink and a good laugh.
LOL. Bit of a stretch for me on this one.
Mormon Woman stress? Could just as easily be Baptist woman stress....
I was going to say something along the lines of one more wife would allow them to take entire days off in shifts.
At least you are not obnoxious like so many other people -
you are obnoxious in a different and worse way!
This was a report on a talk at an LDS Women's Conference held at a private Mormon religious campus (BYU).
I'd expect a confession from you that you're wrong (again), except I know how loud the "crickets" are in your area.
DRTTV thread—no thanks.
Is the different shades of blue for 1st wife, 2nd wife, 3rd wife?
Well according to the April 28, 2010 Mormon Times: Brownies a favorite at Women's Conference :
"And the BYU brownie is apparently the favorite way to satiate that hunger. More than 12,300 brownies -- mint, regular, with or without nuts -- were sold during the two-day conference in 2009. During a typical week on campus during the semester, only 1,705 of them are bought. And during the five-day Education Week in the fall for 2009, there were 8,178 brownies sold. "Traditionally, the women's conference food is typified by the brownie," said Dean Wright, director of dining for BYU, who provided the statistics to Mormon Times.
(Yeah, I'd say; so, a typical week with hungry male students & young coeds yields 1,705 brownie purchases (246 a day). The women come on campus and the average purchase skyrockets to 6,150 per day almost a 2500% increase!)
And if you think it stopped at brownies: "Other favorites include ice cream, chocolate milk (which is my grandmother's favorite) and doughnuts, but none of those beat out the Education Week totals for those same treats. Nearly 6,300 doughnuts are sold on an average week, while 732 are sold during Women's Conference and 2,901 during Education Week last year."
Well, all I can say that they do know how to make good doughnuts in Utah! (Ya gotta give that to 'em)
But where does the "Word of Wisdom" come in on Brownies & Doughnuts, again?
.... So, Colofornian ...when you apostasized from the LDS Church did you get a 10% raise and an extra day off each week?
