How To Live A Stress Free Life

Many ask the question of how to live a stress free life. Let these thoughts, poems, and quotes encourage you and give you answers.

Some of the stress we experience is caused by things out of our control but the one thing we do control is how we think about situations. We need to find ways to do the things that we can do to eliminate some of the stress in our lives. Some stress is good, but a lot of stress is not good for you, your health, and those around you.


Time To Live A Stress Free Life

Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, 2015

Sometimes in our lives,
We just need a little less stress.
Life gets so crazy at times,
We'd like to just play a little chess.

And then there are the times,
That there are things we wanna do,
But we feel like we don't have time,
To start, let alone follow through.

So what is it we should do,
But try and make time for us.
We all need a little time,
To sit back without making a fuss.

So let's all make a plan,
To live a life less stressed.
And do the things we wanna do,
This is what I'd suggest!

More thoughts to consider about stress:
Stress is one of those things that can get you down. You first need to recognize what is causing the stress you are experiencing and see if there are actions that can be taken to reduce the stress.

As the poem, Time To Live A Stress Free Life, suggests one way to reduce stress is to make sure that you make time for YOU. Take the time to do your wanna do's.

Take the time to do a hobby you enjoy doing or, taking a walk, or just reading a book, whatever it is that will help you relax. After doing this you may find that you will not feel as stressed. And, you may see the situation as less stressful.

If you are in a situation that there seems no way out of, then set your goals, start taking action to change your life to what it is that you want in life.



Life
Poet: Unknown


Forget the ache your own heart holds
By easing others' pain;
Forget your hungering for wealth
By seeking others' gain;

And make your life more brighter seem
By brightening up the years
For tears dry quicker in the eyes
That look for others' tears

Thoughts to consider:
When we feel stressed, stopping and helping others who are in a worse situation than we are can make you stop and count your blessings rather than focusing your thoughts on the issues that are causing you stress.

If you live by the principles in this poem you will find your life becoming more stress free each and every day!



If
Poet: Unknown


If you want to be respected, you must respect yourself and others.
If you want to control others, you must learn to control yourself.
If you want friends, be friendly.
If you want justice, be fair with others.
If you want consideration, be considerate.
If you want courtesy, be courteous.
If you want to be strong, be quiet and unafraid.
If you want to keep your character and reputation above suspicion, keep good company or none.
If you want to be popular, never say an unkind word about anyone.
If you want to know God's word, study His book.

Thoughts to consider:
I would add the following line to the poem:

If you want to live a stress free life, keep your attitude positive.

So often we cause our own stress because of our attitude, how we view things. We tend to focus on the negative rather than on the positive. Find the good in situations, no matter what the situation, and when you find it focus on it!! You will find your life turning into a stress free life if you stay conscious of your attitude and the thoughts you are thinking.

Positive Poems



When we give in to negative thinking, or adopt a "I can't" attitude, you're opening the gateway to stress. The more we languor with the "I can't" attitude, or "it can't be done" attitude, the more stress you invite.

Byron Pulsifer, Perception Is Everything
Attitude Quotes



One of the major causes of stress comes from trying to be somebody that you're not. When you are fearful that someone's going to find out what you're really like and that you might not be able to keep up the facade, it causes stress.
