I read a lot of posts about stress. I could add a few of my own lately. Life just has this way of getting in the way of our plans.
What are you doing about your stress?
You’ve heard all the usual advice about “getting rid” of your stress. I sure have. Along with all those “stress buster” techniques that promise to help us get rid of all that stress. How’s your stress been? Have you busted it yet?
I am all for those techniques that promise to help us cope with day-to-day stress. They can help a lot. But I do have a concern about the idea that stress is an enemy that has to be busted.
After all, stress is a part of life. To assume that we can somehow rid our lives of stress isn’t very realistic. There is too much going on in the world – and in our daily lives – not to experience some stress. In other words, maybe we need to learn to stop fighting stress and learn how to live with it.
Here’s a link to an article on stress and mindfulness I wrote a couple of weeks ago:
I’m really interesting in know more about what’s going on in your life. Where’s your stress coming from? And what are you doing about it? Any techniques to share? Need some ideas?
I’m all ears (eyes)!
