What I Know To Be True About Stress

October 29th, 2011 | Posted in Personal Development, Stress Management by

I hate having stress in my life. For many years stress was a habit – a lifestyle. I loved stress and thrived on chaos. I still tend to do way more than I should and I love many multiple projects going on at once. Yet even though I am busy – today I do not get stressed as often as I used to. And when I do let stress get the best of me – I tend to notice it quicker and do something about it.

What I know to be true about stress today is:

  • It’s temporary – it will pass.
  • It’s a choice. If I choose to focus  on how stressed and busy I am, I WILL be stressed and busy.
  • Stress attracts stress. I can choose to avoid stressful places and stressful people.
  • Most of the stories I tell myself and the things I worry about NEVER HAPPEN.
  • I create most of my stress – it’s not anyone else’s fault.
  • I can be less stressed no matter what’s going on in my life.
  • When I’m stressed I’m not creative and I’m less effective.
  • I sleep better when I’m not stressed.
  • And when I manage my stress and let things go – life is just darn GOOD!
