Life if full of stressors. Family, Finances, School, Work, Neighbors, Traffic, Past Experiences, Future, Dreams, and so on.
Often times we suffer from the nervous illness. We start with a basic stress and then we continue to stress over other things. Your heart begins to race, your stomach gets upset, you can't think straight, your breathing changes.
So what do you do to prevent this?
It's simple but not easy.
One workable solution is to make a list of all your stressors and then decide what is in your control. If it's not in your control then move on. There is nothing you can do about it anyway. What you will have left on your list is what is in your control.
The things you can control take the one thing that is most important and do something about it.
It is much easier to work on one thing at a time than to work on everything at once.
Remember that plate of food when you were a child and it was so full of food that you just knew you couldn't eat it all, but you were told that someone was starving somewhere so eat your food. Well imagine your stressors as that plate of food, now send the things you can't control to the starving person that your parents referred to. :-)
Now go do something for yourself and relax. Don't forget to breath from your belly and enjoy the moment.
