FINAL ESSAY TEST QUESTION: Since there is only one, 2 part, essay question to answer, please—pause—after reading the Two Part ESSAY– before submitting your response. Let is percolate for a while.

EXAMPLE: Metaphorically speaking: Allowing some time to clear my windshield on an icy morning so that I can see my way, safely, as I drive—can be applied to stress management– (rather than trying to drive through a very small clearing on the windshield). If my philosophy is to be in the PRESENT MOMENT— then pausing to gain insights, appreciate someone or something can be applied to MY LIFE IN VERY SPECIFIC EXPERIENCES AND IS EFFECTIVE STRESS MANAGEMENT THAT FITS ME PERSONALLY.
