There was a no person walking on this planet that didn’t experienced stress. Stress is something that can’t be avoided in this simultaneous world. There is so much going on in this world right now. In a smaller countries, I think, is less going on, but in those largest ones, I can’t even imagine, very overwhelming I believe.
Question for you: “How do you usually feel when you are stressed?”
I find myself feeling overwhelmed, my mind is racing, short breath, feeling like a headless chicken, my heart pounding faster, I have a temper, I want to yell, hurt somebody, argue with people…
“The truth is that stress doesn’t come from your boss, your kids, your spouse, traffic jams, health challenges, or other circumstances. It comes from your thoughts about your circumstances.”
Self-awareness is the key. When you become aware that you are stressed and that you need to stop that, everything is going to change, but only if we do make some changes. We need to be kind and patient with ourselves. Everything in life is practice, whatever that you want to achieve, you need to practice doing that, and eventually it will be your second nature.
Here is the video that I filmed not long ago about stress. Watch it here and learn more:
What can cause stress:
- Money worries
- Poor management and work colleagues
- Fights within family
- Poor health
- Unfaithful partner
- Lies about you
We don’t wanna continue this rout if we are feeling stressful. Whatever stresses you, you need to find a way to stop it, for good. Again, it is awareness that will move the needle the most. It is the awareness that will bring you from feeling stressful, to feeling fine about whatever is going on around you.
You can start with writing everything down. Writing is always a good choice. Because it is like you are taking charge, you are taking responsibility about how you feel, and you want to change that. Write down what stresses you, and what can you do to make it stop.
First, you can make a list of the things that the most stresses you. “What are the things that most stresses me in my every day life?”
Second, for every thing you wrote, now write down, why is that. “Why is that this thing stresses me that much?”
And third: “What can I do about that?”
Try, take charge of how you feel, be honest with yourself, and your future self will thank you for.
We don’t need stresses in our lives
Success is measured not by the amount of things that you hold, not the businesses that you built, but by the amount of joy that you felt along your journey.
