Help, I Can't Handle the Stress! 3 Steps to Release Stress and Allow More Peace Into Your Life.

Is stress getting to you? We all experience times of stress. When my beloved husband became extremely ill, unable to work, we began falling into debt. The pressure and stress was moving in on me from all directions – I thought I might pop! Just when life turns upside down, stress comes marching in, taking up residence.

How do you handle it?

Stress is an intrusion on our peaceful existence. All of us strive to have orderly and peaceful lives. We do well when we operate in certain routines. However, things change. Of this you can be sure!

What do we do in the middle of potentially life-altering change and stress? Consider this: We can “have” stress without the stress “having us”.

We must focus on our perception of the thing itself. For it is true…as the saying goes, “When we change the way we looks at things, the things we look at change”.

Here are 3 simple steps to change the way we look at things, allowing a space for peace and acceptance to enter in.

Step 1 – Accept.

Accepting things the way they are releases the power we may feel they have over us. It allows us time to breathe. Acceptance is the key to finding a healthier solution instead of continuing to resist the change that is occurring. When we accept people, places and things exactly as they are it becomes easier to find the right answers. Acceptance is the key to many problems.

In my case, my acceptance that my beloved was ill and unable to work allowed me to look into other alternatives that would support the changes we were going through.

Step 2 – Look for the Good.

This is a powerful step. It may seem counter intuitive, however, focusing on the bad will only make things worse. When we look for ways that could bring out the good in the situation then we are able to move through it more quickly.

So, I looked for ways I could help support our family which allowed me to become stronger and ultimately to create two companies. While caring for my husband I became more patient and loving toward him as he convalesced and eventually healed. This has created a deeper, richer relationship and I realized I became stronger too.

Step 3 – Forgive and Let Go of the Rest.

Forgiving and letting go is a huge step in building a closer relationship with your inner-self. Realize there is no one to blame -it’s only life happening, shifting and changing.

I began to vision what new changes I would love to create in my life rather than look upon this situation as drudgery. We all have choices in the thoughts we think. I may not always choose what happens to me but I can choose what I will think of it. I chose to accept, look for the good I can find and then let go and forgive all the rest and in doing so I allow more peace into my life.

Final thought…

Life is in constant motion and change. As we accept this, when routines change we will become more adaptable and less stressful during the process.
