Stress and Well Being

Stress lowers your immunity leaving you vulnerable to getting sick more often. You probably create stress when you feel like you are coming down with the flu or a cold.

Did you ever stop to think that worrying about how you are going to pay all your bills or lose the weight you know you need to lose impacts your every day health too?

The more you worry about something the bigger that something looms in your life.  You become obsessed with thinking about that something all the time. You even wake up in the middle of the night and cannot get back to sleep because that thought keeps racing around in your head.

Here is the thing – it is just a thought. And you are the one who made up that thought. In fact you created the fear that continues to feed that thought.

What happens when you feed a monster? It grows into a bigger monster, right?

Stop and ask yourself if what you are thinking is possible. Next ask if that something comes to pass in your life what is the worst possible outcome for you? Chances are even the worst scenario can turn into a gift for you – when you learn to look at life that way.

Sure, life does not have to be a struggle yet somehow you refuse to learn your lessons until the Universe gets in your face with whatever you chose to ignore.

What do I mean?

You came here to learn soul lessons so you can grow on a spiritual level. The Universe sets up small obstacles on your path so you can easily learn those lessons.

If you are like most people you walk around those problems, pretending they do not exist. You act as though you do not even see them. If we do see them then you fail to acknowledge them as problems.

So the Universe presents the same issue in the form of a different person and situation – different in appearance but identical issue – for you to resolve. Again, you walk around the problem.

So the Universe presents the problem in a more pressing form – over and over again, each time creating more and bigger obstacles until finally you cannot get over, under or around the problem.

Your only choice is to burst through it and resolve the issue you have long ignored.

Once you resolve the issues that cause you stress you will not need to struggle. The Universe will no longer assist your lesson as you already figured it out.

In other words your life will shift into one of low stress that, when it comes up, you will know to clear the issue immediately instead of waiting for the Universe to create a series of unpleasant events.

Stress: Stress Impacts Your Mental and Physical Health

Stress impacts your physical and mental health. You know that truth, perhaps personally. But then who doesn’t? Stress is implicated in 7 of the top leading causes of death.

People often fail to recognize early signs of stress impacting their health and well being. The sooner you become aware of the symptoms as expressions of stress, the sooner you can eliminate the cause of the stress.

You may not be able to eliminate the actual stressor. After all it could be your boss, your pet, your neighbor, etc. What you can erase is your interpretation of circumstances and behaviors that leave you feeling stressed.

Events have no meaning other than the meaning we assign to them. What if you consciously assigned different non-stressing meanings to behaviors you have, until now, seen as weighing heavily on your sanity?

I used to be very bothered by a certain person’s tapping on the steering wheel while driving. The more I allowed it to irritate me the louder it seemed. When I told that person how it affected me he said he could not help it.

Hmm. I had a choice. Continue to go bonkers when he started doing it OR refuse to let it bother me.

Here is what I discovered. If I said something when he started tap tap tapping he and I both felt aggravated and he would do it even more, telling me he could not help it.

Ah, then I decided to ignore it. Guess what. When I ignored the tapping he stopped dong it within seconds. Yes, seconds. Interesting, yes?

Then I realized I don’t have to let other little things bother me either. So gradually I found myself paying attention to what made me feel uptight and stressed. Then I had the choice about whether to continue to let it bother me or not.

In cases when I had more of a challenge disregarding behaviors I chose to remember that each and every one of us is an expression of the Divine. We are each Divine Beings living Human experiences.

When I look at someone in that Light the annoying feeling inside me dissipates. Pretty neat, the way that works!

Frankly, when I remember to look at every creature as a way that God gets to experience life, to feel as we do with five senses, my whole world looks different. Better yet, I feel at peace. And usually I find myself smiling.
