Reduce Stress


When we become overwhelmed or stressed, we can put more importance or weight on problems and challenges in our lives. Taking a moment to reassess a situation will help us to put it in its proper perspective. When we do, we often find that the obstacles in front of us aren’t really so big, after all. The next time you are overwhelmed, take a moment to relax and honestly assess the issue. Can it be overcome? Are you giving it more importance than it deserves? When you realize that the problems and challenges you face are temporary, you are better able to face them and move forward. The silver lining is that when you put things into their proper perspective, you free yourself to address the solution, rather than the problem.

Always remember that we have a choice in how we address life. We have a choice whether to see our glass half empty or half full. Opportunities present themselves when we change the way we perceive the world around us. For more information and to receive my free motivational emails, visit
