    The Wind Up Toy
    “Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are.”
    Chinese Proverb
    Somewhere in my memory I remember a toy that you wind up until the spring is fully loaded and then you put it on the floor and it lets go, it jumps and moves around the room in mo particular way, just however it lands as the spring is unwinding.
    In one way this is like stress, when we are getting fully wound up and our stress is great, we jump around, we react to whatever is around us, and our focus and our ability to perform in an organised is diminished, and we have less control over our outcomes because the decisions we made under stress may not have been wise decisions.
    When we relax and allow ourselves to unwind in a way that is calm, we can then think a little clearer, we have the opportunity to think through a problem and make decisions that are more likely to hep solve whatever is causing our stress.
    Stress does not only affect your mind it affects every call in your body, imagine all the millions of cells in your body being stressed, no wonder we ache and feel stiff when we are stressed.
    Next time you feel stressed, stop, take a minute to breathe, take some really deep breathes, and as you do think some thoughts that will allow you to see past the immediate cause and to know that everything comes to pass.
    Have the greatest day letting go of stress and enjoying your life.
    Kindest Regards

    This one got me. It’s motivating enough to make you want to learn to handle stress or get rid of it completely. Who wants to show a cry of defeat to the world?

    Good Stuff

    Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are. -Chinese Proverb

    Stress is always striving for something better, when we can just be ourselves we can truly relax – this is why laughter with friends makes us feel so healthy.

    Hello Shawn,

    I believe everyone of these quotes has a valid reason why we need not to get stressed. They are all wonderful to read.

    Stress is a feeling you get when faced with a challenge. In small doses, stress can be good for you because it makes you more alert and gives you a burst of energy. But feeling stressed for a long time can take a toll on your mental and physical health. Even though it may seem hard to find ways to de-stress with all the things you have to do, it’s important to find those ways. Your health depends on it.

    Stress happens when people feel like they don’t have the tools to manage all of the demands in their lives. Stress can be short-term or long-term. Missing the bus or arguing with your spouse or partner can cause short-term stress. Money problems or trouble at work can cause long-term stress. Even happy events, like having a baby or getting married can cause stress.

    Episodic Acute Stress, where acute stress seems to run rampant and be a way of life, creating a life of relative chaos (e.g. the type of stress that coined the terms ‘drama queen’ and ‘absent-minded professor’)

    Chronic Stress, the type of stress that seems never-ending and inescapable, like the stress of a bad marriage or an extremely taxing job (this type of stress can lead to burnout)

    When faced with chronic stress and an over activated autonomic nervous system, people begin to see physical symptoms. The first symptoms are relatively mild, like chronic headaches and increased susceptibility to colds. With more exposure to chronic stress, however, more serious health problems may develop. These stress-influenced conditions include, but are not limited to:

    Whatever your situation, stress need not damage your health. If you handle your stress now, you can quickly be on the road to a healthier, happier life.

    Enjoy your day!

      Thanks, Lee. Very informative info on stress you’ve shared there. I don’t know which kind I have, but I definitely got a lot of grey hair in the last 4 years! (and I’m only 38)
