Stress, is in the Air!

Updated on January 24, 2012

What is STRESS

Stress is just a six letter word but, has such a deep impact on our lives if and when we overcome with it. It can change our lifestyle and we can fall prey to diseases and doctor visits. It can ruin our relationship with someone we love and we could fall in the dungeon of peril. Stress does not limit a age group. It can come to anybody living and can hit anybody as close to birth or nearing death.

Gosh! such is the effect of Stress and still we take on it.....WHY?

Life is beautiful and when we are quiet from inside, we hear the sweet chirps of the birds and can feel the wind blow into our face and hair. Nature has such beautiful ways to soothe us and comfort us but, how we look at nature is up to us.

We could find the chirps of the birds as nuisance and the wind blowing could be termed as windy by us, when we are emotionally challenged. But, what makes us restless? Is it the load of work? Is it the competition? Is it the urge to be a topper? Is it the urge to do everything possible on this planet? But, why do we have such urges?Why do we have such desires?

Ponder on...

We are humans and yes, we are the toughest and smartest living organism on this planet but, we have not been given the powers to do all in this life time. We got to breathe in and take it easy as well. That is why, we get days such as Saturdays or Sundays in a week, to put up our feet and enjoy what is around us rather than running around in circles of life. This is one life we have got, and let's not rush into things and forget to breathe every couple of seconds.

Desires will come and go. Once we achieve one desire, another desire will come our way. Desires are endless in this technology savvy world we have created. We have to make a self-realization about our needs. Make boundaries. Learn to be happy in whatever state we are, whether it be a unfavorable or favorable condition, because an unfavorable condition will not last long but the harm done to our body will not reverse when we are in favorable conditions. So, let's always remember to breathe no matter what and not walk along with this word in our lives.

Life is short and we make it complicated by adding on tension and all possible sorrows as we go through the twists and turns of our life. But by keeping a positive attitude towards life, and working towards our goal will help us stay focused and not grief over what we could not achieve and thus take on stress. Always remember, whatever happens, happens for good. We have to continue doing our tasks without asking for much and that will take us long way in our journey of life.

We came on earth empty handed and we will go empty handed. So, why Stress over things which we will not take with us. We will only be leaving back memories of us, so let's try to be a happy person and spread happiness around. This will make the Air stress-free and that is one contagious disease which we all would LOVE to acquire!!!!

      Hello Rajan,

      I am glad that you agree with the above.

      Agreed, this rat race is making us forget the ideals and our goal of coming to this planet...

      Thank you for stopping by...appreciate it!

      Hi Sankari,

      So good to hear from you...I had initially opted for hub karma thus, was linking some key words to other hubs. Apologize if it was irritating :)

      Thank you for reading it and am glad that you liked & agree with the content. Yes, our Gita has taught me a lot of things and maybe I might have babbled it up here in my own words.

      Stress can only leave when we are content inside, with whatever we have. Ruchira,you have penned beautiful thoughts which are so true yet we all seem to forget them in the rat race to accumulate things which will never go with us.

      Thanks for such a reminder.

      Up and awesome.

      Your last few words remind me of the Baghavat Gita!

      Very true fact we should not stress ourselves for the things which we are not going to take with us!

      But I felt, you have linked too many other hubs which sometimes is good, but sometimes more disturbing!!

      You generate great hub ideas and make it short and sweet! Keep up the good work!

      Hi Sunnie,

      I am glad that you liked the above. I guess being aware of stress is getting one step closer to self-improvement and I applaud you for taking this BOLD step of retiring from being a nurse.

      I wish you immense contentment in what ever you do and sending you lots of joy and happiness, my friend!

      thanks for your precious input...appreciated it!

      Dear Friend,

      Oh how I loved this hub..Such a gentle reminder. Part of me retiring this past year was part of me working as a nurse for 18 years and feeling the impact of stress upon me. I know this is not an option for many and I have had to tighten the budget but finding joy in the most simplest of things. Thank you.

      God bless,

      A great hub. Only if we are contented with ourselves and try to live a simple life would help so much. Voted accordingly

      Epigramman...I am blessed to hear that I have been able to touch someone's life and have tried to make a difference.

      Wishing you loads of joy and happiness in the years to come epi :)

      epigramman 6 years ago really do have a lot of very useful information and a very eclectic assortment of hub subjects - bravo to you and lucky for me to have found you - I suffer from high blood pressure and live alone on a poverty level so needless to say this particular subject in which you write of was very interesting to me.

      I am not totally alone in this world though because my two best friends are Little Miss Tiffy and Mister Gabriel and I have met a lot of great and talented people at the Hub.
