Answer:  BIG POURTIONS

(It took me a little time to solve today’s Jumble.  Two of the jumbles came to me right away, but the other two made me think.  One was because we’ve never had “saying” as a clue word before.  Ralis95 can add this to his world famous clue word database.  The other is because . . . I always thought that the Kardashians were from “TUSHIA”.  The answer letter layout did a splendid job of keeping today’s answer a puzzlement.  I thought the first word was going to be either OUT or BIG, and I thought that the four letter portion was probably POUR, but I was erroneously thinking POUR-INGS for a while.  Because of the cartoon, with the over-sized wine glasses and the name on the window – Big Girl Bisto – I settled on BIG and POUR, which left me with SOITN.  Then the lights came on!  A nicely challenging Jumble, I thought.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Adopting the right attitude can convert a negative stress into a positive one.”   —   Hans Selye

(I think that popular culture, and the media, puts a much larger emphasis on negative stress, but there are positive stresses, as well.  Eustress is the term that Selye coined for positive stress.  But, ultimately, it’s a matter of perception and attitude.  If you do heavy labor, or you’re forced to march a long distance, you tire – and grumble – much more quickly than if you approach it as exercise, that’s going to help you gain muscle and lose fat/weight.  The same goes for almost every experience and emotion in our lives.  The negative stresses, which we always hear of the detrimental effects, is better categorized as distress.  I had forgotten that we’ve had a Selye quote in the past.  I bet WordPress will find it and tack it on to the bottom of this post.  Be well . . . by being positive, and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
