Steward Tip

Laugh A Lot! 

Stewards can be under a lot of pressure, but no situation is so solemn or serious that you can’t find a way to poke fun at it if you try. Stretch your sense of humor with joke books, cartoons and videotapes. And for the final word on stress relief, consider this philosophy of life, offered by legendary pitcher Satchel Paige, who stayed in the major leagues until he was forty-seven years old: Avoid fried meats which angry up the blood. If your stomach disputes you, lie down and pacify it with cool thoughts. Keep the juices flowing by jangling around gently as you move. Go very lightly on the vices, such as carrying on in society. The social ramble ain’t restful. Avoid running at all times. Don’t look back. Something might be gaining on you.
