I am not surprised about the stress that is getting upon the nerves of people nowadays. Long working hours, unhealthy diet, desk job, office politics and what not; everything is just adding to your stress. I am worried about the world where stress is more than the calmness. My first blog is about being happy, relaxed, calm; which will not only make you satisfied but will also increase days to your short life.
Stress is something which is inbuilt and not environmental. I agree upon it that environment adds up to the stress but in my opinion only 20%, rest lies in our mind; our psychology. Hardships are the vehicle of life. If there won’t be hardships why would we think? Why would we work? The question is why should these hardships of life create stress in our life? Well I believe the peaceful mind works better. More you will think about hard goings of life, more the stress would get onto your nerves. And more difficult it would be for you to come over the problems of life.
Why a problem be treated as a problem and not as a challenge? Why competition should be taken as rivalry and not as friendliness? The thing is, what we think is what creates stress in our life. Our psychology really matters a lot. Foremost, it is important for us is to LET THINGS GO! Do not just let it flow from your heart to your mind. If something troubles you and you aren’t getting its solution, so let it go. And you will see things themselves get into its place. Taking things into your hand and keeping it on your head as a crown would not make your life easier. Pick up things which you think is good for you and it will not create stress for you and let go other things.
Secondly, pick out some time from your busy schedule for yourself. Look about your actions; it should not be such that would hurt others, look about things which you have done; if needed improve them, look out what you want in your life; but of course make sure it should not get onto your mind. Every second you give to yourself should focus on how you can be a better person? Only then time is worth spending else a mere wastage.
Thirdly, you should steal some minutes from your long working hours to take a walk or to relax. This would add to your efficiency and effectiveness and trust me it will not be wastage of your precious time.
Lastly, make sure you eat healthy and take proper sleep of at least eight hours a day because healthy mind works better than a wealthy mind.
At the end I would say change your psychology; take things positive and you will see that life is much easier and happier.
