Ever wonder how to get your child to stop stressing so much, or how you can lead a more stress-free life? The secret is not in the amount of stress we have, but our relationship with stress that determines our experience.
If you have lots going on that is stress-producing, but you have a positive outlook on it, such as believing this stess will give you energy, motivation, and enhanced productivity and performance, you will feel great in your daily experience and have a positive response in your body.
If you have a negative outlook on the stress you experience, such as believing this stress will be draining, cause high blood pressure, or other health issues, you will feel greater unfavorable effects.
Stress is not our enemy. Believe it or not, it is not natural to have a stress-free life. We can, however, learn to stress better. It is not what we experience, it is how we choose to see our experience. You get to choose, in every situation, how to view stress. Make stress work for you. :)
