Does this picture depict an entrance to a restricted zone? Does it indicate the pathway to nirvana? Or does it seem like some idealistic dream? Is stress free a real state of being, a distinct possibility? Or is beyond the grasp of most of us mortals who have our hands, minds and hearts filled with so many to-do’s, so many expectations, so many pressures or insecurities coming out from our career, family, relationships, kids, their academics, financial and ego needs to stay ahead or even from past baggage?
Coming closer home to my own practices and experiences over the last 3 decades and how I have shaped myself around trying to stay calm and keep stress levels to the minimum by following some of these basic principles, here are a few tips to make the mind drift and sniff deep when you connect with any of them.
At the end life is all about making the choices that make one happy, keeping it uncomplicated, enjoying the little pleasures, laughing more, taking hurdles as an opportunity to learn and living each day as a gift of life to make the best of it for yourself and the lives you touch. As a Mentor and Coach that’s just what I aim to do every day and I have never been more at peace.
The list above is easier said than done and if it’s caused you stress just reading it – you certainly need help. If we manage even half of it to start with it could be the start towards entering a more stress free zone in your life as shown in the picture above.
And to answer the question posed earlier – Is stress free a real state of being, a distinct possibility? The answer – very much, but only you can make it happen by doing the little things that all add up. And just keep this in mind along the way “When you stumble, make it part of the dance.”
Enjoy the dance of life and make it fun too!
