Relief for the Stressed Out Executive, and Family!

February 4, 2013 at 6:16 PM

We’ve all heard it, but do we heed the good advice? You MUST take time to replenish yourself… to recharge your batteries, as it were. It isn’t as though we wouldn’t love to, but who can find the time? When my family moved up to NJ 5 years ago, I was amazed at the level of focus, intensity, and competition. And, I’m just talking about the soccer moms! Whether you are a dual-income household, or a commuter household, with a stay-at-home parent (usually highly-educated), one thing is certain…. you are BUSY!

According to many of our “alternative healing” GWACC members, taking time to pay attention to your breath, and listen to your body might be the answer.

To the Editor:

The past few years have brought on a numerous number of debates, the Redevelopment Act, new town hall, change in our downtown area, the Supreme Court ruling on COAH to name a few. Many of you know I do not agree with some of the above BUT I am only one person. I have learned to sit and study the different situations to understand them by researching.
The other thing that we ...

Is a lump sum offer from an employer a better choice than a pension annuity for life? The former provides an immediate up-front amount (say $300,000), but the pension annuity gives you a stream of payments for life (example: $1,350 per month). A number of employers dangle a lump sum offer to employees in part to remove future liabilities from their balance sheets. It’s tempting for ...
