Why are we stressed, is quite a vital question. Is it perhaps just another way of saying " Why aren't we happy "

happiness Why are we stressed, is quite a vital question. Is it perhaps just another way of saying " Why aren't we happy "
Happiness is the ultimate goal of every human being.  We are constantly striving, in some manner or the other to be happy, but although it is,  an easy target to achieve,  we are constantly in the throes of one or the other unhappy situation. We must begin to understand,  that it is completely in our hands, on a conscious level , that happiness is our goal, and that is is completely our responsibility, to watch ourselves getting there. 

INTEND TO BE HAPPY
You need to experience life from a positive perspective. We must keep positive qualities on the top, on a priority basis.

A Constant Process

beinghappy A constant Process
The responsibility of keeping ourselves happy,  is totally our own.  Every individual is completely responsible for his or her own happiness. Each one of us is capable of making our dreams a reality. It is up to us to harness the forces into play for ourselves. This will require a dramatic change of behavior in the way you do things and even in your thinking process. You have to be ready for it. You need to understand that you will be doing this,  because you will have to change the fundamental essence within you. 

BRINGING IN CHANGE
People invariably reach a point in their lives,  where they feel the necessity to change,  as their lives seem to be stagnant and meaningless. They stop feeling the essential joy of "Being Alive", which is the inherent nature of every human being. We keep putting it off since change scares us. We are so comfortably settled,  in our own comfort zone, that moving away from that zone seems unnatural to us. But we need to realize that we have to do it. Sitting in the same situation will only keep generating more and more stress due to a stagnant invariable. 

How can we have a passive approach to an active expectation?

Let Go of Anxiety and Regain Your Freedom

freedomof-lettinggo Let Go of Anxiety and Regain Your Freedom

When life falls apart, or threatens to come unglued, it seems almost natural to carry around some desperate, stressed, or depressed emotional state. But why cling to something that makes us ache? The answer is surprising, but evident, once we’re aware of what’s actually taking place within us.

Negative states tell us that we must feel as we do.

In some strange and unseen way, the weight of a dark worry serves as proof that we have “no option” other than to buckle beneath it . . . to fall down, feel betrayed, or prepare for a fight.

Real life can no more act to pull us down than the rising sun can burden the spring flowers that wait to bathe in its nourishing light.

No event, in itself, is the cause of the fear we feel in the moment of its appearance. William Shakespeare, whose insights into the workings of the human mind still remain treasures in spite of passing time, validates this important finding: “There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.”

The same wisdom holds true when it comes to the moments that make up our lives: we meet in events nothing more or less than the wealth of possibilities they present before us.

Shed the Old and Embrace the New.

womanwalkingsunset Shed the Old and Embrace the New.
The way energy works, opens your eyes to a whole new world of possibilities, which we are never really quite aware of. This is a very liberating thought, as it keeps you at the helm of affairs, by giving you control of your own destiny.

EMPOWERING
Since energy understood at a conscious level, allows you to determine, the direction of your destiny, you can allow yourself to be totally convinced of your own power.  We need to understand that energy can be moved, and this is only possible through change, which is only possible through changing our thought process. This also goes to tell us that our stress levels are completely under our control and need to be dealt with accordingly.

CREATING A DESTINY
This statement in itself, shows us the way. In order to create a new life, a new destiny, we need to make a concious change within our own selves.

Shed the old and embrace the new.

Create a new experience, create a new life.

createnew Create a new experience, create a new life.
At every second we are participating in the creation of our destiny. We are constantly shifting on an energy level, and so are, our stress levels.

There is our shifting thought process which is responsible for all that goes on within us. It's totally up to us to be stressed or to remain de stressed.

People are stressed because of taking all their various perspectives into the loop, whether its their lifestyle, careers, personal relationships, and all other aspects , but we need to understand, that all these variants are connected to our inner selves. It is our own personal level of consciousness that responds to it.

A Practical Way Of Handling Stress

stressed A Practical Way Of Handling Stress
Stress is our own individual unique experience. You have all felt its threat at some time or the other, moreover, perhaps experienced its onslaught. Remaining impervious to it, in today's fast track world, is almost obviously an impossibility. So examining its reasons and finding ways of dealing with it, is actually our prime duty towards ourselves.

Stress has, we can say in a broad spectrum, five different forms.

SUBJECTIVE EXPERIENCE
We can actually say that stress is the subjective experience of distress. That is when it is a perceived threat to ones well being, or one's position in society. More so when dealing with it, exceeds one's resources.

We need to decipher for ourselves, how to figure it.

How To Overcome Fear with the Miracle of Love

selflove How To Overcome Fear with the Miracle of Love
Most of us are grappling with only one main issue, that is, how to stay happy. Being calm, focused and joyous, in a world which is constantly drawing us, into its chaos, is definitely a well performed feat. How to keep our mood stable, and our lives in a state of balance, is something we need to work at, constantly. Keeping our wits about us, and our brains and bodies in a state of balance, is an art we need to master. This inevitably doesn't happen on its own, we need to make it happen.

Living a life, which is aware and at a level of consciousness which is constantly evolving, is our prime duty towards our own selves. It is only by living in a state of awareness that we are conscious of our day to day stresses and we have the ability to combat them.

Stress builds up within us because we allow fear to step into the realm of our existence. With no fear, imagine the possibilities. I feel it is only the fear within us that hinders us from stepping into progress.

How The Experts Calm Themselves Down

calm How The Experts Calm Themselves Down
One of my favorite saying is this: “if you don’t want to burn out, stop living like you are on fire!”

My fantasy is that I “glide through life,” and yet my reality is more like, OMG! Holy Shit! and I race around like the world will end if I don’t finish my To-Do list. Of course this creates tons of stress, anxiety, crazy fears that something bad is gonna happen, etc.

As I mentioned last week, my go to solution is EFT Tapping and I decided to ask my friends what they do to bring themselves back to neutral, sanity, or whatever happy place they want to be.

See if any of these solutions work for you!

Leave the Red Zone

stressmeter Leave the Red Zone

Are you stressed or upset?

The Practice:
Leave the Red Zone.

Why?

There I was recently, my mind darting in different directions about projects in process, frazzled about little tasks backing up, uneasy about a tax record from 2010 we couldn’t find, feeling irritated about being irritable, hurrying to get to work, body keyed up, internal sense of pressure. Not freaked out, not running from an attacker, not suffering a grievous loss, my own troubles tiny in comparison to those of so many others – but still, the needle on my personal stress-o-meter was pegged in the Red Zone.

Then that quiet background knowing in all of us nudged me to cool down, dial back, de-frazzle, take a breath, exhale slowly, repeat, start getting a sense of center, exhale again, slow the thoughts down, pick one thought of alrightness or goodness and stay with it, exhaling worry about the future, coming into this moment, just sensations, calming, mind getting clearer, focusing on what I’ll do this day and knowing that’s all I can do, the body sense of settling down yet again sinking in to make it one bit easier to settle down the next time. Leaving the Red Zone, not all the way to Green, more like Yellow, but no longer even Orange. Whew.

What Do You Do To Avoid The Pain Of Life?

unhappy What Do You Do To Avoid The Pain Of Life?
How do you try to avoid the painful feelings caused by others and events, and what is the result?

We all learned many way of avoiding the existential pain of life when we were growing up, because we could not manage feeling it when we were little. Now, as adults, most people continue to protect in the ways they learned, even though today, adults, we can learn to manage our core pain through Inner Bonding.

Most of our core pain comes from others being unloving to us or to themselves, disconnecting from us and from themselves. We all desire connection with those important to us, and we naturally feel these deeper painful feelings, especially when someone important to us disconnects from us with their own protections – their anger, blame, withdrawal, and so on.

Tips For Overcoming Overcommitment & Overwhelm

work-is-making-her-miserable-picture-id1064567962 Tips For Overcoming Overcommitment & Overwhelm

Do you get anxious thinking about your “to-do” list?

Do you constantly wonder how you’re going to possibly get everything done?

Are you exhausted, feeling it’s your job to take care of everyone and everything?

 

The other day I was talking to a group of women. Some had high power jobs, some worked part-time, and some not at all. There were single moms, working moms, stay-at-home moms, grandmoms, and women whose children are older but are now taking care of their moms. Although their circumstances differed, one of the issues they all had in common was feeling overcommitted and overwhelmed. As they shared how they try to manage their lives, striving to find a sense of calm while juggling their obligations, tasks, and to-do lists, it became apparent that their tendency to multi-task was not only the source of their exhaustion but also a form self-sabotage. They all agreed that something needed to shift but questioned how. Below are three tips for overcoming overcommitment and overwhelm.

How To Keep A Stress Free Environment For Personal Success

stressfreestudent How To Keep A Stress Free Environment For Personal Success
We all realize that stress is affecting everyone at all ages and stages of their lives. It is a known fact that a growing child, even in his mother's womb, can start getting affected by the stress his mother carries.

Then onwards, once the baby takes birth, the influx of his environment and all the messages he seems to get from around him,  the vibration and the energies that he is facing,  they all have an extreme influence on his personal stress levels. 

I have noticed that in a students life, peer pressure and environmental social structure, are the main determining factors in his personality development. 

So it is important that a student as he is growing, becomes aware on how to keep his environment stress free,  so that he can be able to perform at his ultimate levels, and can be heading towards a successful career option.

It is imperative for a student to have a stress free life. The youth of every country is responsible for the future of that nation,  which of course has a further global impact. Indirectly we can say that, the youth makes up for the fabric of the planet. 

I will address the issue from a student's perspective so that he can have an idea of how to deal with a new level of stress,  which could seem insurmountable in his new role as a college student.

Create Your Own Magic For A Stress Free Life

relaxingwithbook Creating Your Own Magic for a Stress Free Life
We are all happy to realize that although stress is constantly building up within, if we are consciously keeping ourselves in an awareness mode, we know that stress relief is also so much within our own hands. 

One is so often bombarded with so many alternatives in terms of stress relievers. Yet, I personally feel that for each one of us,  there is this one factor that could calm us down. It has to be something that resonates with our inner core. It is all about connecting to that one factor and moving on with clearing our own inner selves. 

CREATE YOUR OWN MAGIC

Lots of times people have this constant question, " Could you please give us one short stress relief tip" this sounds so easy,  as if it's a magic word I need to decipher for them. But honestly personally I do believe life is magical, if we allow it to be. It's up-to you to create your own magic. It is only " We" who can decide what to create, and how to create it. Making a magic potion to relieve our stress levels is our responsibility.

Live In The Moment And Be Stress Free

liveinthemoment Live In The Moment And Be Stress Free
Time and again, I write about meditation, as a great stress reliever. I believe very strongly, in the benefits of meditation, but I also want people to realize, that meditation is not only that concept which they associate only with spirituality. It is in actuality only a way of life.

Mostly people who look inward, see it only as a method of personal spiritual evolution, but i want you to see just the basic levels of evolution, in order to clear the stress levels.

Meditation is a way that will get us, short term and long term benefits. It is up to our own intelligence intake, that we choose our path.

Anything that calms the body and brain and gives us a level of slow infiltrated joy us our meditative state.

Focused breathing is really  what gives a gentle and overall change to the general stress levels. It is the best way of calming the body and the brain, in the shortest span of time. Physical touch, such as, a simple hug, is another quick strategy.

Take Charge of Your Life

sailing Take Charge of Your Life

“No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk our own path.” — Buddhaint Teresa of Calcutta

The other day, I had a conversation with a friend of mine that gave me goosebumps.

She is someone who, by all accounts, is super successful. On the outside, she looks like she has everything going in her favor, but on the inside, she has been struggling to add some order, simplicity and sanity into her life.

When you have a lot going on—when your life is charging full-speed ahead—it’s often hard to step back and figure out what you can drop, if anything. It’s tough to even think about dropping something when everything appears so great to everyone else on the outside.

My friend told me that she knew in her heart that she wanted to make a change to her life, but that she she was nervous about speaking up and actually going after it. For her, this involved having a conversation with her boss about shifting how she worked.
