endeavors until you achieve your much wanted
goals. You may, however, find the goal evasive and
costly. An overly burdensome approach to your
vocation or your problems could result in loss of
your health and, in turn, a loss of family, friends
ana lovea ones, is it really worth the price?
, You do not have to be wealthy in order to relax.
Your mind is your wonderful escape mechanism '
and you owe it to yourself to use it as such.'
Daydream. Let your mind wander. Use creative:
fantasies and wonderful visual imagery.
' When a problem occurs, fantasize, first, about
something that you would really enjoy doing: vaca
tioning, walking along a quiet trail in the forest go
ing to a beautiful party, graduating from school, at
tending your son'sdaughter's graduation or simply
being With a long lost friend. The list is endless.
After you have enveloped yourself in fantasy,
the.n, and only then, should you tackle the problem.
At this time you will be relaxed, in control of your
emotions and able to think sharply and clearly.
Does your job bore you? Fantasize the boredom
away. Constructive fantasizing is considered to be
one of the most wonderful and effective means of
relaxing. It may save your life.
Here is additional advice to help you to cope with
boredom and stress:
1 . Realize that your job is not stressful. School is
not stressful. The truth is that you are stressful.
When you attribute stress to your endeavor, you afe

wondered why other people are calm while you are
under stress m practically the same situations? '
2. Understand no one is perfect. Everyone has at -some
time experienced failure. When you do your
job to the best of your ability, relax. When you fail
in an endeavor, pick up the pieces and continue to
move ahead learn from the failure but leave it'
3. Use your creativity. Write about all of the

AN South Africa is
actively recruiting skilled
Polish workers to fill the
skilled manpower gap
left by a failure to train
and promote black
workers in sufficient
numbers. By late
December, according to
Minister of Internal Af
fairs Chris Heunis, at
least 400 Polish im
migrants had arrived or
were in transit to South
Africa, while another
1,000 had been approved
after applying to the
recruting teams Pretoria
has stationed in Austria.
Recruiters offer to help
defray the costs of travel
and sometimes offer
other benefits as well.
South African inter
viewers select , those,
Polish refugees with par
ticular skills for employ
ment in South ' Africa.
Shortages identified by
.economists include such
jobs as 5,600 bricklayers,
pipefitters and others for
the construction in
dustry, still unfilled in
spite of a migration of
;some 40,000 white im
migrants last year alone.
