Pain happens to you. 

Stress happens through you.

Stress is your resistance to what’s happening.

Life events may create temporary pain, but they do not in themselves create long-term stress – yourresistance creates this stress.  And it transpires most frequently in one of two ways (or a combination of the two):

  • You refuse to accept the present reality

  • You choose to worry and think about every other time and place

Thus, the only real problem in your life at any given moment is your mind’s perpetual resistance to life as it unfolds.

If you want to conquer the daily stress and anxiety of life, the first key is to live in the present – just BE here now.  Let go of what you think your life is supposed to look like right now, and simply appreciate it for everything that it is.

Here are the first 7 of 21 ways to help deal with stress.

  1. Take off your mask. – Let people around you see the real, imperfect, quirky, weird, beautiful, magical person YOU are.  That is enough.

  2. Trust your intuition. – You don’t need to explain or justify your feelings to everyone, just trust your own inner guidance, it often knows best.

  3. Let go of the thoughts that aren’t serving you. – Right this moment, your thoughts are setting the direction for your day.  Choose thoughts that lead to the day you most desire to live today.

  4. Firmly decide what matters and what doesn’t. – Stress comes from the way you react, not the way life is.  The meaning of everything in your life is the meaning you give it.  Inner peace begins the moment you choose to be mindful by not allowing another person or event to dominate your emotions.

  5. Take a deep breath when you need one. – You don’t have to solve every problem in your life before you can enjoy being at peace.

  6. Keep sanity in your schedule. – Sometimes we have to say “no” to good things to be able to say “yes” to important things.  We can’t do it all.  Be mindful and choose wisely.

  7. Practice gratitude. – If you look for reasons to be grumpy, you’ll find plenty of them.  Look instead for reasons to be grateful, and see them everywhere.  Remind yourself how fortunate you are to be experiencing this moment right here, right now.  The more you appreciate it, the better it’ll be.

And as always remember whatever is happening in your life right now…

No beating yourself up! No matter what!

Even if life has been stressful lately, and you’re a long way from successfully implementing the ideas and strategies discussed in this post, that’s OK. Be patient with yourself. It likely took you years to form the habits, routines and life situations that are creating needless stress in your life. So it will naturally take some time to form new and better ones. But I promise you this: Even the smallest step in the right direction today will bring you some peace. Take that step. And then take another one....
