Stop Stressing, It’s Killing You. Do This Instead

Do you know what’s stressing you out? Do you know where stress comes from?

It comes from you’re judgement of things outside of your control.

It also comes from you mis-judging things.

You have a circumstance that befalls you, you judge it, you become miserable, stressed, depressed. Why? Because you label it as something that’s:

  1. Out of your control
  2. Bad

In the first case you have to audit your judgement. Is it really out of your control? If no, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. If it is out of your control then don’t worry about it. There’s nothing you can do.

In the second case, why are you even labeling it in the first place? Who taught you that you had to label it? That’s a question that you have to sit down with and truly figure out.

In the grand scheme of things, you need to stop judging things. You need to relinquish the idea that you need to control outcomes. That’s what’s killing you. And it is killing you because stress is a silent killer. It raises your blood pressure, screws up your blood sugar levels, slows your metabolism, stress is killing you.

Nip it at its root and let it go.

About Anthony Boyd

I go by the alias Anthony Boyd & this blog is my series of theses on philosophy, spirituality, physical expression of strength & human behavior through self-reflective spoken & written word. I’ve been a Union Delegate for 6 years. During this time I have developed countless leadership skills that I’ll be sharing with you all on this blog. Leadership is something I’ve develop through hours of research, strength training & personal application of growth strategies. I started this blog with the intention of disseminating the leadership & developments skills I’ve attained over the past 6 years as a leader because there is a huge need for male leadership. It has developed into a conduit for sharing these ideas in hopes that others can gain insight from them as well. Two things have always been constant in my three decades of life on Earth, my ability to express myself through the word & my unquenchable curiosity of everything around me. Combine that with my obsession with strength training, personal development & we have this blog. It is my hope that I can provide endless value, insight and perspective gained through experience as a leader to the readership I have developed here.
