A Thought About Stress by Blair Gaulton

A Thought About Stress
We expend too much time, and
energy stressing ourselves; which damages our health. It is better to let go of the things we cannot control, and live instead of killing ourselves worrying.

About Worry 2 by Blair Gaulton

About Worry 2
When we worry too much;
we drain ourselves to exhaustion;
because of our fear of what might happen.
Quite often it is not a true reflection of the reality we live in.
Nor do we have control over it.
It is better to save our energy;
for when we need it.
Rather than to weaken ourselves;
over something that is unlikely to occur to the people we love and care about.

There are many kinds of Stress. For most of us, stress is a killer. It affects us in many ways. For some people the effects are visible and others you do not see it at all. That does not mean that they do not pay a price for having stress. A lot of people do not want to admit to others that they have it. For them perhaps, it might ruin the perception that people have of them. Is that so important? This is a health and lifestyle issue in my opinion. Reduce stress and you have the chance to life a longer and potentially happier life. Surely everyone wants that? Maybe I am spouting malarkey. Unless of course, you are a person who needs it to get your work done and works better under a deadline.   Sometimes that applies to me too. I have read that this is considered to be a positive form of stress. To be truthful, I have no idea. Can anyone tell me if there is a positive form of stress? I think the challenge for all of us is to see what kind of stress is bad for our health and find a way to reduce it, so we do not suffer from another heart attack or stroke or whatever condition we may have as a result of it .  As for me, it has been speculated that I became a diabetic due to stress. Is this a myth or is it real? I can believe it but if anyone out there knows, please let me know. We live with bad stress everyday. Whatever helps you to relax…meditation, drinking tea, listening to music or something else make more time in your life to do it. The people who love you will have the benefit of having you around longer.
