Handling Stress - Final Word
The true causes of stress are not the problems or negative experiences that you encounter in your life; but your attitude toward them.
So, the trick is to change your attitude and to develop a relaxed state, because you cannot be stressed and relaxed at the same time.
It is important to understand that what we focus on, we energize. The more you continue to think about the factors that cause your stress, the more energy you give it.
So it is vital to let go and focus on relaxation instead. Consequently, you’re less likely to be upset by a stressor, and thus less likely to have its harmful effect occur.
Eventually, it is your choice. You could either continue to react in the same stressful way, or you could choose to improve your life by changing your attitude and becoming relaxed. There’s no other way around it.
