Stress Does Not Control Your Life
More and more we hear about stress, and how it is going to kill us, and how we can reduce stress. When the reality of it is, the things we do to ease our stress does not work, like eating comfort food, or starving ourselves, or not sleeping. These things are not productive, and yet we somehow let stress justify our toxic habits as a means to attempt to deal with it. We should rather be dealing with it in a way that actually reduces the stress and does not make us feel lifeless, defeated and empty. Stress does not control the way you live your life.
Stress Is Useful

In a stressful situation, we have more power and more energy to push ourselves. Stress is a great tool to help us get our tasks done, because there is no time for any mistakes. Otherwise it is a great teacher, showing us our mistakes and reminding us that we need to approach our stressful situations differently.
