Today's show is in part in recognition of National Stress-Awareness Month, inc. the end track and the opening set of today's Lucky Friday 13th show / stress-themed hip-hop songs while off-the-grid turntablist/hip-hop self-help guru DJ ZeroStress will curate this live comment-board offering his top anti stress tips.
  Fri. 4/13/18 7:01pm DJ ZeroStress:

What’s up WFMU and Jersey people and folk in Brooklyn and Bronx - Before we get to the first rule of zerostress - stop for ten seconds and then take some breaths. Next tip #1 to a stress free life is get the fuck offline and away from all social media and giving away info and inviting in stress. I have no Facebook or any of that. No website - and guess what? You can function in a world without all the usual social media etc. Turn off the constant news flow - and focus on you, your life that you can change. Forget Trump - the rest of the stressed nation can deal with him.

#2 “Stress is life” is true - it is how you deal with stress and how quickly that is important - Tip number two is handle that stress shit right away before anything else - do this by breathing exercises - then you need to examine your life and if not already in place, begin a healthy lifestyle -that includes exercise - swimming is excellent since it also includes the breathing exercise and is exhilarating - But the importance of as much physical movement as possible cannot be overstressed

amo a Billy y todos!!

Last two years of stress nearly killed me (and my wife) due to her health, and the costs associated, now we just have have to worry about her immigration interview and being apart (small potatoes compare what we've already been through).

hey Billy Jam and folks.

tai chi or yoga. walks. gardening, even if its just a window box. get a pet. take a break with mary jane.

DJ ZeroStress! great advice! mindfulness is key: know when you're getting stressed and work on strategies to lessen or eliminate that cause from your life.
  Fri. 4/13/18 7:11pm DJ ZeroStress:

#3 Drumming is an excellent stress reliever as is playing any musical instrument - another tool to step back and look at big picture - Listening to music too is most important and no two peoples’ de-stress music is the same - Also begin your day by planning ahead - work wisely and you will avoid stress - Stay in charge of your life is ultimate goal to avoid stress when it arrives

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 4/13/18 7:16pm northguineahills:

reading and music (listening, playing, or djing) is my go to for stress relief.
  Fri. 4/13/18 7:17pm DJ ZeroStress:

#4 Nas classic “If I Ruled The World” sums up goal of a no stress - but also brings up the point that one cannot rule the world, at large - just our own world -which is all we can do and have fun doing it and if we do get stressed remember that it is a wake call - physical one - reminder to deal with shit.

Listening to PTNOR kills my work-week stress. I'm also drowning in IPAs so I need to cut that...nah.
  Fri. 4/13/18 7:25pm DJ ZeroStress:

#5 A lot of these songs - including Del - reference the positives of weed and it cannot be overstated because it truly is medicine and will ease the pain. Pharma would rather you take something addictive you don’t need. Fuck that shit. Take control of your life by starting every day meditating and looking at the day ahead and your life ahead, drink lots of water, exercise daily and have fun doing it, don’t waste time on shit you know you hate, get off the newsfeed shit. Be your own best friend - Thanks to WFMU for invite to do something would normally never do -Oh don’t follow me ….on Twitter or anywhere - hip-hop forever.

"No hay nada en esta vida que no tiene arreglo, menos la muerte." Means "Theres nothing in this life that can't be fixed, unless its death." If it didn't kill you, then don't stress about it. Big thanks to BILLYJAM for having me and DJ ZeroStress for the knowledge. Keep it tuned to WFMU!

Hello all! Was stuck in traffic for like 3 hours after leaving work. Multiple accidents mainly due to temps in the 80’s today. Everybody and their mama is out driving. Happy that I have Bluetooth in my car that I was able to check out some of the show today.

nothing chills me out more than snowboarding down a beautifull mountain with music blasting out my pocket sound system- fuckin blss
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 4/13/18 7:56pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I find that cutting up fruit or vegetables relieves stress. Bryce's kind of music is highly relaxing.
  Fri. 4/13/18 7:56pm ALF of Hip Hop Slam:

It’s sooo funny that today’s theme is about stress and I was subsiding it while sitting in traffic.
