Your Anti-Stress Hero

Monday, April 30, 2012

While waiting for my massage last weekend I read an article that I can't stop thinking about (and I bet that many of you can totally relate to it as well). It was all about escaping stress. I think many of us feel stressed out at times despite how much we try not to let it get to us, right?

A writer, Alan Cohen says that we all have to find our own anti-stress hero. He discovered his while waiting anxiously before his speech some time ago. A few minutes before his turn on the stage he noticed another speaker looking incredibly relaxed. That was the moment when Alan realized that stress is not a condition, it is a choice. After that day that man became Alan's role model for ease - the person he channels in "could-be-stressful-situations".

Here is Alan's tip on how to find yours: "Think of a person or people who inspire you as being relaxed, happy, and successful. You don't have to be like them, just try to tap onto their ability to deal." Makes sense, doesn't it?
Alan continued on saying that the energy of ease is universally available, but some people have found a way to access and use it.

What do you think about Alan’s tip? Do you have an anti-stress hero already? Would you try this tip? How do you deal with stressful situations? xo

I love this! I totally believe stress is a choice, one that I choose far too often.

I can't say I have an anti-stress hero per se but I agree...it is a choice and I have faith that goes beyond my needing to sweat bullets. It's very freeing I agree.

That's cool! I kind of do this by imagining myself not-nervous. Does that count? lol

Hope your massage was lllooooovely!

Sounds really smart...I always get nervous and think too much about it when I have to talk in front of a crowd or call someone I dont know or when im meeting someone new. I really could use an anti-stress hero! Great post...adorable photos! Xoxo

That's an unbelievable tip- I am so going to try this. We all know the friends that are so laid back and relaxed that you instantly feel less stressed around them... but I usually just go to their place for a cup of tea or whatever. It's such a good idea to think of them going through the same stuff but just letting it blow over them and not getting worked up about it. Genius!

I am so glad that you like the tip, little t!!!
