No, it’s NOT impossible. Unfortunately, stress has become so ingrained in our lives that most people assume tension and anxiety are unavoidable. But according to Dr. Wayne Dyer, an expert in the field of self-development, this just isn’t true. He says there’s nothing natural about living a life riddled with stress and anxiety. Our bodies react with spikes in blood pressure, heart rate, indigestion, ulcers, headaches and other negative responses. So, here’s how Dr. Dyer says we can return to our natural state – which is one of joy - and live a stress-free life! We found these tips in the Bottom Line Personal.

  • You have to realize that YOU are the source of your own stress. Things that happen around you can’t bring you down unless you LET them. Once you do this, things will become more manageable.
  • Change the dialogue inside your head. For example, here are a couple of things you could say to yourself:
      • Instead of “I have so many things to do, I’ll never get caught up.” Say, “I’m going to focus on getting this one thing done. Then if I have time, I’ll move on.”
      • And instead of saying, “I can’t be happy because the person I love left me.” Say, “I’m going to focus on what I have, rather than what I’m missing. I trust that love will return to my life.”
    • Stop taking yourself so seriously! Next time you get all worked up, take a step back and have a good laugh. The truth is - the world operates on its OWN time, not yours. If you bake a cake, it’ll be done when it’s done and the traffic lights won’t change just because you’re running late. So stop expecting things to run on your timetable. Otherwise, you’ll wind up smack dab in the middle of all that stress you’re trying to AVOID. Wanna go further? Check out the book 10 Secrets for Success and Inner Peace by Dr. Wayne Dyer.
