Stress and Eu-stress

Are you sometimes stressed out? Feeling uptight? Anxious or nervous? Fatigued? Sleepless? Is your mind chattering too much? Can you feel inner peace or happiness in life... in spite of stress?


                                          WANT TO GET BACK ON TOP?

If you are like 30-40-50 percent of Americans, stress is a real issue sometimes. Whether you struggle to focus, or get tangled up in too many things..stress is something we can all experience when "must do lists" seemingly run their course with no end in sight. Stress is a natural experience,of life, but most people cannot control it. Then what?

Obviously, this can be debilitating, but you can learn to cope with it, so that it does not get the better of you and rule your life. Before you can do this ,you need to know what stress really is. Stress is an ancient mind-body reaction to external stimuli that are perceived as unmanageable or dangerous. It activates the fight-flight mechanism that helped our ancestor to survive, but today does not work at the office.

Being busy is not bad. Eu-stress is another form of stress which allows us to outdo ourselves or perform better in situations when stretched to new levels. In this way, stress can be for better or worse as we oscillate between its two sides. To put it another way, we can either see stress in a positive light or feel we are not in control.

"It is not stress that kills us, it is our reaction to it" - Hans Selve, stress expert

Occasional stress makes us agile and alert - but it is not natural for the mind-body to be exposed to long-term stress.

Modern life, has a tendency to create the negative forms of stress that leave us fatigued, entangled in worry and anxiety or as victims of the mental, emotional and physical stress symptoms. This has many health-complications. If we are to move out of the downward psychological spirals or self-defeating circles, we:

  • Need to identify what causes the stress 
  • Take appropriate action to avoid reacting to it. 
  • Learn to build our resilience to prevent further mind-body stress-madness.

You can learn this with a proven tool called MINDFULNESS.

MEW - NOW IS THE TIME (to keep your resolutions)?

You have probably heard it from all types of life experts before: "NOW IS THE improve yourself and your life". Funnily, they always brag with a long check list we postpone or forget what was all about. NOW does not happen because we get entangled in stressful things like paying the mortgage, more babies and nappies, the car that needs to get fixed, or a cat that is pissed off. MEW. There you are, smack in the middle of things undone. Provoking, yes, maybe, but we tend to live in this stressed out way always somehow lacking the time. The improvements do not happen, you stare at the pouring rain through the looking glass (aka window) wondering what happened, and why?
                                                 SEE MORE BELOW
                               and make today the first day of your new mindful life!

Candle in the Wind

                           Take a look at this... What do you see, or what do you think?


                                                          MINDFUL HYPNOSIS

                                               Try to keep looking at or staring into it -
                                                       does it burn in your eyes?

                                                  Do any thoughts come to mind?
                                          Is you consciousness blowing in the wind?

                                        Now, try to suspend thinking - any thoughts.....

                                                       Did that blow your mind?

                                                     Then discover mindfulness...

                                                             It is not that silly

The mind's eye

In our mind's eye the world is something we can control, perceive and explore. We like to play and often behave like the world is our toy store - full of barbies, puzzles and the like. Like a child we may think we want or can have it all. Part of our adult upbringing in life is learning about restrictions. We cannot or do not get everything and may start to mourn or feel pitiful, but what if we became more selective in our choices? Then we would not get as stressed trying to live up to a personal frenzy of exaltation or other people's expectations. If we look inside and use discernment, we can learn what matters most to us, and what is more or less useless...

                                                          Use your inner goggles
                                                                 It is a choice

An important ingredient of mindfulness is ACCEPTANCE. You have probably heard the saying that we should only try to change the things we can, and accept those we cannot. Climate change, for instance, may be a relevant issue, but our emotional states most certainly affect the "atmosphere". We could think or talk about "greener grass", but what if this simply means we should find a gardener to cut or take care of the lawn for us? Either way, we have a choice. We can say yes or no, be happy or dissatisfied. In this way, life in the balance depends on our perception and levels of acceptance....

Stress-Ville is not a village on a remote mountain top. You know, it is a city - full of cars, exhaust, loud noises and flashing neon lights. It is found all over the planet in places like Moscow and New York with Big Macs n' skyscrapers. We live inside or on the outskirts of their limits, commute and ride freeway queues. If we live in the center we can enjoy city-life and be prone to wander, and shop till we drop. But if we really want to find some relief from Stress-----Ville we need to find a place of silence, somewhere green like a park or simply get out. Green trees have a soothing and calming effect on the mind, body and spirit. Just laying in the grass staring at the tree tops can reverse any stress build-up. If you take a friend or lover or two with you for a picnic you can experience an all-in-one-Bliss....

“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under the trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.”
John Lubbock
