Life can be hard on us men. Here are my Top 5 things to hit gathered from my own experience to help you positively deal with stress: Hit your sparring partner… We all have those days where something gets under our skin and where we are just on one. Instead of going home and laying into the wife and kids, bring that smoke to your sparring partner. He’s there in the dojo waiting for you and he can take it. Your attacks and your intensity help him with his training and the nice thing about it is the more you give the more you will receive.

As a little girl I grew up dreaming of my husband as Prince Charming. The man of my dreams that would come from far far away and make my heart beat race as he saved me from the dungeon guarded by the dragon. We would then live happily ever after. As I grew into adulthood this idea of Prince Charming grew a bit dim. Yes, some charming princes approached but with time their frog nature came out. But you know what? It was all for the better. Looking back, I realized that these past love experiences molded me and helped to inform me about the types of values and character traits that I wanted in my life partner. So… why did I choose Mike as my husband? Which steps brought me to him? SELF-DEVELOPMENT In many of the books I read it was stressed over and over that before…
