Coping With Stress With Positivity (Part 2)

If we consider our professional lives, work should be an expression of joy. In the twenty four hours that we have in a day, most of us are more preoccupied than busy. Our own thoughts and emotions become such a big issue that most of our time is spent in dealing with them. The results than can be achieved simply are then delivered with a lot of difficulty. When we use our emotional intelligence incorrectly, it turns against us. In such moments, we can help ourselves by remembering that at least our own mind and body should work for us, not against us. Stress causes suffering, which limits life to half a step and never a full stride. Today, the most successful people at a materialistic level, carry the most stressful faces. Unless we translate success into life and a great way to live, the society at large will stagnate. For those of us who are reasonably successful in life, carrying a joyful behaviour, therefore becomes a responsibility.

In order to identify what contributes towards building a person’s ability to cope with stress, there are different aspects we can look at. The first is the external support available, and especially the network of people around and close to the person. The stress of a major illness, for example, can come down to a certain extent, if one has a good insurance and a loving family. The second important source of strength is our own psychological resources like education, intelligence and personality factors. Moving to a new city and establishing new friendships will be more stressful to an introvert person than an extrovert, for example. And thirdly, it has to do with the inner mental and emotional strategies that we build which work best for us in coping with stressful situations. This is the most important aspect, as it determines the effects stress will have on our life and also, it is the most flexible aspect; something which can be completely under our personal control.

Message for the day 09-06-2021
-----------------------------------------

God's love brings out the perfection from within.

Expression: The power of God's love brings about change internally. Through His love everything old and unwanted finishes. There is the natural tendency to bring about such perfection that the one who loves Him and gets His love becomes like a mirror - a mirror in which perfection of others too is visible.

Experience: There is such inner strength that I get because of God's love that even if somebody does something to hurt me, I don't allow myself to get hurt. Even if people are saying negative things, they don't influence or touch me in a negative way. I am so full with God's love that it naturally flows out to those around me.
