Change Your Beliefs

“Within you right now is the power to do things you never dreamed possible. This power becomes available to you just as soon as you can change your beliefs.”
-Maxwell Maltz

I have been working on developing a Stress Workshop – no not one that causes stress (or at least I hope not), but one that will help people with some ideas on how to deal with some of the things in their life that cause them stress.

Stress is part of our everyday lives.  A certain amount of stress or tension is healthy and necessary for everyone. Without it, special events would lose their excitement, jobs would be done without enthusiasm, relationships would be dull.  But the time may come when stress increases to the point of ‘strain’.  This can make it difficult to think straight, to control our emotions and can, in time, affect our physical well-being.

Unemployment and job search can cause prolonged stress. The most important thing to remember is that many daily situations aren’t inherently stressful.   Stress can be either positive or negative, it is we who choose the role stress will play in our day.

Each of us has the power inside to decide how to interpret stressful events.  What may cause severe stress for one person may cause mild or no stress to another.  Stress is like relatives; nearly all of us have some.  Nobody has the same relatives; nobody has the same stress.  Some stresses, like some relatives are more helpful than others, and while we can’t eliminate stress – to do so would make life pretty boring – it would be nice to control it when it drops in for dinner.

It’s been said that ‘laughter is the best medicine’. This may not be the literal truth but we can’t dispute the many physical benefits that are associated with laughter. Roaring laughter can create a positive ripple effect throughout a home or office that spreads joy and happiness, as well as a host of physical benefits.

Take some time today to find something to laugh at, someone to laugh with, some time to watch a funny video or movie.  Reduce your stress and empower your being.

To your success – BANABU
