What’s All The Stress About?

stress-wayne-dyer-quotes

This week I wanted to go for a walk, hike or play in my garden as soon as the sun came out.  Can you relate?

What did I do instead? Worked.  As the hours ticked by, I kept promising myself I would take a break and got outside.  Instead I worked and worked and worked.  By the end of the day I has exhausted, not by the work by the stress.

Wayne Dyer put it so well went he talked about how stress doesn’t exist.  He would ask his students when he was teaching that he would pass anyone after the first day of class who could come to him with a bucket filled with stress.  It is an impossible task.

Yet, if you are like me, you have days where all you feel is stress.  You have to run the kids to a million different places, present a proposal to a new client or perhaps have to have a difficult conversation with an employee.  You find your heart beating faster.  Your hands sweating. All you feel like doing is running.  Sure signs of stress.

What you can do is recognize it in the moment.  Take a quick breather.  Close your eyes, not while driving of course, and realign yourself with what is really important.  Your kids, your clients, your employee.  Then proceed.  See if that reduces the stress you feel.

This week try this simple technique and let me know if you reduce your stress.
