Be Yourself And Zap Stress!
Ask a hundred different people how to deal with stress and you'll probably get the same amount of different answers....
Which could result in more stress....
And therein lies the key.
Stress is often caused by too much information coming from too many places.
There is more information in one daily newspaper than a person would have received in their whole lifetime a few centuries ago. And that's without even taking the internet into consideration.
No wonder we sometimes get stressed!
Naturally, other people's opinions can be interesting. But you don't have to take them all on board. Trying to will just drive you crazy!
It's so important to take some quiet time each day to be on your own. The answers that are right for you are found inside of you, you just have to tune in. Something that is 'right' just seems to 'bubble up' from within. So if something is bothering you by all means chat it through with friends if it makes you feel better. Just don't think you have to take every opinion on board.
Never feel guilty if your opinion is different from anothers. The biggest misery in life can be trying to' fit in' with another's dharma. Dharma is just another name for life path. A good example of this is the storyline often seen in movies:
Child is miserable because mother/father wants him/her to follow in his/her footsteps. Never under-estimate how traumatic this can be. If something is not right for you and you're trying to make it fit then much pain can result...
Just think of the 'ugly sisters' trying to fit into Cinderella's slipper!
So, if you're experiencing stress ask yourself:
"Am I being myself or am I trying to be what another would like me to be?"
The path to happiness is to be your true self. This in turn will make those around you happier because you will be also giving them 'permission' to be themselves.
So spread happiness by being true to yourself.

Common SENSS Stress Control
Statistics show that all of us experience stress at one point in time or another. It is no longer a question of whether or not we are stressed, but rather how much stress we can tolerate. A consistently high level can lead to many physical ailments such as gastro-intestinal problems, sleep disorders, headaches, heart attacks, flu, frequent colds, cancer, skin problems, depression, and chronic pain. For example, it does not mean that every single incidence of heart attack is caused by stress, but the bulk of evidence suggests that stress is an important factor. The goal in stress control is not to eliminate stress, but to create more of a balance between your demands and coping resources. The first question to ask is "Do I actually want to be less stressed?"

Stress Reduction and Sacred Moments
"The great lesson from the true mystics, from the Zen Monks, and now also from the Humanistic and Transpersonal psychologists ? that the sacred is in the ordinary, that it is to be found in one's daily life, in one's neighbors, friends, and family, in one's back yard, and that travel may be a flight from confronting the sacred ? this lesson can be easily lost. To be looking elsewhere for miracles is to me a sure sign of ignorance that everything is miraculous." - Abraham Maslow
Taking Care of Yourself
Living in our world today can be very stressful. While some of the stress that we experience is actually useful for motivating us, a point can be reached where it becomes very harmful, physically, emotionally and even spiritually. Knowing how to manage and even reduce the harmful effects of stress on a daily basis, of staying balanced and centered as we encounter the many stressors of everyday living, is crucial to our well being. Among other things, taking care of ourselves will necessarily involve us nurturing our physical body, of eating healthy foods, of exercising.
