Madge reads each child a short book. She tucks them into bed. Then Madge phones her friend Paige. “I am stressed out. What can I do?” Madge asks. Paige says, “Take a short walk. Do a workout video on your TV. Try daily exercise. This will make you less tired. Eating less junk food will help too.”
“Thanks, Paige,” Madge said. “I’ll try some of those things. Talking with a friend helps me feel less stressed out.”
