So lets take a look-see at a condition that plagues most people, and see if there are a few basic things we can do to help redirect it.
We should all know the common definition of stress ~ the confusion created when your mind overrides your bodies basic desire to choke the living shit out of some asshole who desperately deserves it!
Although it is funny, it tends to be a bit off the main mark. I have found in my own experiences, that people stress when they think about 'failing' at something ~ "I don't have enough time", "I don't have enough money", "I don't have enough help", "It's too much too soon" ... and on and on. What these people are really saying is ~ I'm worried that I'm going to fail at my task.
However, you are worried about something that MIGHT possibly happen. Follow me here on this train of thought, when you stress about most things in life you are literally ~ Daydreaming about a hypothetical event in a future place that may never even come to pass ... that you THINK you have some control over!
Folks, a very very old (as in about 55 AD) idea is that happiness comes from realizing what you have control over, and what you do no. News flash ~ YOU are riding around on a giant rock hurtling through space, surrounded by billions of others doing the same! You have NO control! You are just along for the ride!
The sooner you realize this idea, and apply it to your life; the sooner your stress and anxiety levels will drop and the happier you will be!
