We live in a busy world. There are always new things to do . Sometimes we feel like we can not pull through. Sometimes we feel like what we do is not good enough. We worry that we will be replaced. We worry that we are making mistakes. We focus on things that we can not change. We stress. We usually think negatively about stress.We think of messy hair, baggy eyes, and coffee (lots of coffee). We do not realize that stress can be positive. Stress pushes us to accomplish the impossible. Stress keeps us focused. Stress keeps us on our toes. Stress should not be a problem. It is our reaction to stress that matters most. We can not let stress control us. We must control stress.
Here are some ways to tame stress and conquer success:
1) Breathe- There is nothing more refreshing than a breathe of fresh air. Take some time to breathe. Count to ten. Meditate and Relax.
2) Do something you enjoy- Read a book, watch a movie, or listen to some music. Have fun.
3) Remember- Remember the last time you were stressed. Did you accomplish your goals? Imagine how much easier it would have been if you would have tamed your stress. Use past experiences to better present experiences. Believe in yourself.
“Adopting the right attitude can convert a negative stress into a positive one.”
