3 Ways to Reduce Stress June 24, 2010

While we are all spirits living in physical bodies, it is hard for some of us to accept that our physical bodies cannot be active all the time, as our spirits can. When we dream our spirits can travel to the far corners of the universe.  But our physical bodies and minds need rest, AND SOME OF US CANNOT STAND THAT!!!!!

They say we teach what we need to learn, so here are three ways to reduce the stress in  your life.

ACCEPTANCE:   Take a good look at yourself and accept yourself as you are. The fact that your best friend can eat ice cream all day and not gain a pound may have NOTHING to do with you.  If you did that you might feel sick all day and gain five pounds.   And the fact that your other friend can get along on four to five hours sleep a night has NOTHING to do with you if you need seven to eight hours sleep each night.  You and I have to face ourselves and accept who we are and what we need to feel relaxed and healthy. 

BOUNDARIES:  If you are a nice, kind, intelligent, helpful and warm-hearted person (and of course you ARE) then everyone wants your attention and your help.  If you do not set some boundaries you will find yourself running from one activity to another and one person to another.  The result will be that you will have no time for yourself and you will become stressed out and scattered.  You and I need to take out our calendars and schedule “ME TIME” in the same way that we schedule work, family and friends appointments. 

LETTING GO AND LETTING GOD: Everyday, especially as we move into the later years of our lives, we hear about people who are in trouble, people who are ill, and about people who have passed on.  If we are in the middle years of our lives we become focused on the problems of both the generation younger than us (our children) and the generation older than us (our parents).  No matter what stage of life we are in, we hear about serious problems.  While it is important to do what we can to help others in serious difficulty, we have to accept that some things are beyond our control and beyond our help.  We need to let go and let God.  At times the best thing we can do in a difficult situation is to step back and quiet ourselves. In that state of quiet, we can send our prayers to those in need.

My prayer is that each one of us can accept that while on the spiritual level there is no time, on the human level there are only so many hours in a day, and it is 24 hours we have to work with as human beings.  Let us step back and look at the ways we use our time and find ways to become more relaxed and less stressed out.
