Today we'll take a look at stress relative to time.  When we can't control time how do we manage energy and stress? Folks are often in deployment cycles waiting (too much time) - while on a day-to-day basis the single parent at home is "out of time." Research from the corporate world invites people to consider - if you can't manage time, manage your energy and stress. Time is finite - energy can be expanded and stress can be reduced. How can we expand energy - how can we help children do the same?  A related and interesting topic is while everyone knows that couples argue about money, kids and sex, a less visible but stressful topic for couples is "Why Couples Disagree About Time."  

Suzanne is author of three books and over twenty articles.  Most recently she co-authored, Healing Together: A Couple's Guide to Coping with Trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress. She has appeared on national TV as well as Radio.  She blogs weekly on Psych Central (Healing Together for Couples) and Her blogs have also appeared on Huffington Press and PBS This Emotional Life.
