“The components of anxiety, stress, fear, and anger do not exist independently of you in the world. They simply do not exist in the physical world, even though we talk about them as if they do.” –Wayne Dyer
Times are interesting for sure.
Is there any more fuel for stress today than there was last year, last decade, or last century?
Who knows? We don’t compile that data. Not here anyway.
One thing for sure, the more stress that gets expressed, expanded and elevated, the more seems to show up.
We are living in times of high-potential stress. It’s what we each do with that potential.
Given that muscles are only built from resistance, perhaps this is a perfect time to build muscles around stress.
We can either add to the escalation in our responses and reactions, or peacefulize events and environments through intentional workouts.
Simon Sinek says “We live in times of high stress. Messages that are simple, messages that are inspiring, messages that are life-affirming, are a welcome break from our real lives.”
We seek to do that each week here.
What messages can you send out today, whether initiated or in response, to turn the tide toward peace?
Got stress test?
“The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one though over another.” –William James
