The latest methods of fighting stress typically involved staving it off with alcohol or more alcohol, which means people would tend to reach for easier solutions to guarantee themselves some respite from an ongoing pile of problems that plague their lives. Stress is a number one or two killer which explains why so many people in high stress jobs are affected by the toxicity from too many worries and, most often than not, their inability to deal with them effectively. In case of great responsibilities so many of us have to juggle daily we are prone to a quick burnout and a string of restless nights which further aggravates the problem.
In the first place, stress is now an imminent and permament quality which makes it one of the aspects of your life. Work on building enough support to free yourself as much as you can, remembering at the same time that you are not free yourself ever in total even after winning a lottery. You are always doomed to witness the ruin your body will slowly turn into and the fate of your closest relatives that would be enough to flood you with enough pain. Many people easily bounce back from the deepest pits only to show some scarring on a thick skin. They have come to accept pain as part of the adulthood and adult world, where games and deceit rule supreme. This is a killer world for those with overly sensitive skin and those strongly opposed to enforced aggression towards one another.
Whether you are thick or thin skinned you should already know that stress busters work to stave off the negative impact of an environment that is stress inducive. We place too much emphasis on forcing our opinions and our own stands so that we often lose other people’s involvement from sight, instead of listening to what they have to say. Anyone wants to feel gratified and recognized, even the lowliest of the employees, and that is where it begins. It does not solve the problem of having to face your deepest fears and your enemies, but if you take a good look at yourself and wonder what works for you, perhaps then, it would work for those stressful situations as well. The key thing is to develop wisdom to encompass all those situations and that takes more than just a bag of tricks that so many people do not carry around to produce on a whim. Unfortunately things depend to a large degree on our responsiveness to stress which is for the most part biologically determined. If you were conditioned to react with fear to a stronger opponent, emotionally or physically stronger, then you realize how easy it is to push your buttons so that you produce a given reaction which might be more than you would expect. So welcome stress into your life as no one is immune to having it in your life.
