There is a single priority stress relief tip. Without this one, nothing else will work permanently or completely.
Stress relief is a do-it-yourself job. You can glean tips from other people but you alone carry through on what you know you can and will do.
The way to relieve stress is to love yourself first. It is not selfish. It is mandatory.
What do I mean by mandatory?
Can you ever give away something that you do not have yourself? Can you possibly horn and respect anyone you do not love?
Until you love, honor and respect yourself you will continue to please others. You will do everything in your power to make them happy. In fact you will neglect your own needs for rest and nourishment (physical, emotional and spiritual) to place the needs of others ahead of your own.
Each of those habits creates tremendous stress for you in all those three areas: physical, emotional and spiritual. So long as you take on being responsible for how others live their lives and whether or not they are happy you cannot possibly reduce your stress level, let alone eliminate it.
Realize that no matter how hard you work you cannot please others enough. Besides, that is their job not yours.
Your job is to please you. Theirs is to please themselves. If anyone tells you differently see their falsehood for the lie it is. When someone expects you to put their needs ahead of yours they are acting in a very selfish manner.
In the words of Oliver Wendell Holmes, “Selfishness is not doing what you want to do. Selfishness is expecting others to do what you want them to do.”
See the difference in how you taking care of your own needs (not telling others what to do for you) is no way, no how selfish?
Until you take care of your own needs and leave taking care of the needs of others to others you will not love yourself. Until you love yourself you will not live stress-free.
Unless you live stress-free you will never know happiness – let alone joy and wealth.
You need to live your life for you.
What do you love to do? You need to create psychic income not just money. You came here to fulfill on a purpose.
If you spend your life making others happy can you do what you feel driven to do? Can you do what you desire, more than anything, to accomplish?
Remember, this is your life. You can only live it when you eliminate the stress that holds you back.
