Start being attentive to your stress level and take short breaks. Slow down. Breathe. Give yourself permission to pause, regroup, and move forward with clarity and purpose. When you're at your busiest, a brief recess can rejuvenate your mind and increase your productivity. These short breaks will help you regain your sanity and reflect on your recent actions so you can be sure they're in line with your goals.Stress. What a powerful thing in our lives. Between the bills and the jobs and the medical expenses and the school fees and everything else in our lives, stress adds up each day. For many people, stress will lead to some major physical issues that are hard to get past.
It seems cliché to just tell someone to let go of the stress in their lives, but that is exactly what is needed. So how do we do it? Meditation doesn't add enough money in your bank account to cover the bills. It won't help your child pass the classes they are struggling with. It won't fix the broken radiator in your car. Going for a walk won't change the way your boss undermines your efforts. It won't change the disgruntled teller at the bank. It won't stop your cell phone's battery from dying before you can get home to charge it. Neither will yoga or New Age music or all the self-help books in the store.
There are hundreds of books and websites about meditation, relieving stress, and focusing on gratitude. It's up to you to choose the method that helps you.
