Wouldn’t it be better to prevent unnecessary stress rather than scramble to manage excessive stress once it’s out of control and wracking havoc on your body, brain, and emotions?
It’s not possible to remove stress completely, and you wouldn’t want to. Stress is a natural response to potentially dangerous events. And positive stress, known as “eustress,” keeps you moving through challenges towards your goals.
With a little thought and determination, however, you can subtract many of the sources of stress from you life. Once you do, ease and joy will become the norm rather than a constant sense of frazzle.
It takes time to eliminate stress. I’ve been eliminating stressors for a while now and there’s more to go. Some causes of stress are deeply rooted in the psyche, so naturally it will take longer to remove them. Nevertheless, I think you’ll agree, eliminating the causes of stress is one of the best ways you can contribute to your own health and well-being.
