One response to “The Reverse-Stress Mentality”

  1. Dave

    I agree with Jerry that reducing stress has a lot to do with proper physical and mental maintainence of your body. Regular physical exercise at something you enjoy along with honest interpersonal relationships and a positive outlook on life is more effective than any drug or alcoholic drink you may take to try to make yourself feel better. Being grateful for what you have and for the people in your life also helps. I think this is especially true for spouses, girlfriends and children. Long term friendships are also very important as the larger your network is of people who really care about you, the better able ypu will be to weather the inevetible storms and problems that occur throughout your lifetime. Have hobbies and interests that you are really passionate about outside of work is also very important and becomes especially important when one finally retires.

    As Jerry say, most or all stress is self induced and being mindful and living in the moment is a great way to deal with it.

    Well said Jerry! Best wishes for continued success in your personal and professional life for many years to come!
