Stress is a necessary and healthy part of our human function. Most of us would agree that stress is not always visible but is real. Stress begins in our thought life and progresses to influence our brain and body. When our body carries prolonged stress we often will get sick as our immune system gets weak.
If you regularly experience stage 2 or 3 of stress; seek professional assistance. We can’t live in the future for it is the unknown for the most part. We may set goals and make plans but we must have flexibility within those plans. We can’t live in the past for once it’s gone we have no ability to alter the outcome.
I encourage you to live in the present; it is a gift you can give yourself as you guard your heart and gain self-control. The mind controls the brain and the brain is directed by the thoughts of our mind and the desires of our heart. When you have an event which you know is going to cause you stress, ensure you eat a balanced diet, exercise and get rest before, during and after the event. This will assist you to be resilient.
