Managing your stress

“One of the greatest victories you can gain over someone is to beat him at politeness.”

~ Josh Billings

“The more anger towards the past you carry in your heart, the less capable you are of loving in the present.”

~ Barbara De Angelis

Have you ever held a grudge against someone just because they angered you about something? Do you get bothered at work easily?Whether trivial or not, don’t fret over someone or something and let it affect your health, but rather manage it. Everyone stresses to a certain degree, but not everyone knows how to manage it. The key to accomplishing this is to recognize what the big factors are in your life and how to mitigate them. Constant stress produces high levels of cortisol, which has been shown to impair cognitive functioning and weaken the immune system. I believe that stress kills more people than just about anything else. So, before you move to anger and bitterness toward someone or something, relax and have a ball. It’s a lot more fun and healthier for you.

  1. I love the first quote – I meaner people get the more polite I become – works like a charm.
