Stress is really self-imposed. A lot of the stress we experience is because we are putting expectations and limitations on our self. Now every single day there are things that we have to do to be highly functional, emotionally matured adults. Then there are things that we want to do and I think that when it comes to stress the most important thing you can do is really differentiate between you know what you have to do and what you need to do to stay on track and on purpose. A lot of things that fill up our day that stress us out are actually very irrelevant. It's a lot of busy work and at the end of the day a lot of it doesn't really mean anything. So the best way to deal with stress is to add more meaning into your life. To say that we can eliminate stress is unrealistic because we live in a stressful world. But to say that we can balance stress by adding more meaning into our life means that we take sometime to enjoy nature. We make that call to somebody we care about so we can connect. We take some time to sleep, we take some time to indulge in life's simple pleasures. You know managing stress is more about adding what works and taking away what doesn't. Because if we take away what's not working we are just gonna be stressed out even more.
