A stress free life is practically impossible. Stress is the response to the challenges. Challenges are caused by the goals. Achievement of goals are called success. In short no stress = no success. So stress is a good thing but most of the stress in our life are unnecessary. You can easily eliminate this unnecessary stress by applying simple (or not so simple)baby steps. Off course it cannot be done overnight as I have been doing it for a while and I still have a lot to do.
You have often seen the articles of how to relax after a stress full day, and most of them are really quite useful. To further the quest, I made the goal to get the source and cut the stress before it even happens. (Yes. The same as X-Men. Days of future Past).
To nip the evil in the bud, I have devised a list, and by editing your life according to it you can eliminate most of (not all) of the stress in your life.
This is the most important step of all. Identifying the things that stress you out in your life is the first step towards eliminating them. Take 10 minutes to think about what stresses you out during the day? What weekly occurrences stress you out? What people, activities, things cause stress in your life? Make a list, and see which of them can be eliminated, and start to weed them out. For those that can’t, find ways to make them less stressful. You will be shocked when you would make the list.
After listing down your stressors you will not only feel relaxed but watching the list for most of the points you would ask yourself. “Were they really stressors?” and you would realize that most of the stress you have taken was unnecessary. But remember don’t try to cut short your list don’t feel ashamed if your list is going long, let it be. Once done mark them numbers according to their priorities in your life. After which you will just have 4 to 5 stressors in your life that actually stresses you, all else are the byproducts which can be eliminated easily.
