We all have stress in our lives. I've heard it said that 'when we run out of stress we die' so I would argue that there is some benefit to having some stress each day. But how much stress we have and how much stress we need to have will change over time.
To the question posed in the post title ... wouldn't it be great if we could reduce our stress by making a few small and simple changes?
I suggest that it is in very fact the small and simple decisions WE make each day that leads to our larger than preferred levels of stress. And a simple way to change this would be to 'just say no.' Not to drugs (although that's good advice too!) but to additional responsibilities and things to do.
Song Of The Day:
Two versions of the same song here today so you have options and can listen to your favorite again and again. "Brave" originally sung by Josh Groban has been covered in solo acapella fashion by the equally talented Peter Hollens.So my challenge to you is to be "Brave" this week and just say no to some unnecessary extra stressors this week. You'll be glad you did!
