Where does stress really come from? Is there any simple way to reduce it or to stop it?
Stress comes from the thoughts you choose to think in each and every moment.
The first thing is that you need to be aware of the thought that you are thinking. Most of us walk around not really being aware of what is going on in our brains.
Take a moment and really notice what is going on in your brain, are your thoughts positive? Are they keeping you stuck? Are they less than positive?
Once you become aware of your thoughts then you can do something about them. Just because a situation occurs that you do not like, that does not need to cause you stress. Take for example you are in a hurry to get someplace. You are waiting at the stop light and the car in front of you becomes stalled. At that precise moment, you have a choice, you can become stressed over the situation or you can choose to assist the person in the car in getting the car moved. By choosing to assist the person in moving their car, you did not get stressed and you also created positive feelings in the world for both you and the person you assisted.
Stress is very damaging to our bodies, minds and spirits. Stress is literally killing our society in one form or another. Look at all the addictions people have in our society. Addictions are a form of escapism, often these addictions start due to stress.
Stress throws our bodies out of balance and suppresses our immune system. So when we choose to feel stressed by something or someone we are literally ruining our health. As for our spirits, it contracts when we feel stressed. By choosing not to feel stressed in our lives we create a better world for everyone to live in.

Coping with Change: Develop Your Personal Strategy
Why do we resist change?As the saying goes, the only people who like change are busy cashiers and wet babies. We find change disorienting, creating within us an anxiety similar to culture shock, the unease visitors to an alien land feel because of the absence of the familiar cues they took for granted back home. With an established routine, we don't have to think! And thinking is hard work.

Strategies for Eliminating and Managing Stress
To combat modern day stressors, you need to realize that things are going to go the way they are going to go, so you may as well just relax. The most important thing you can do for yourself is to practice extreme self-care which means putting your own needs first. We have had it backwards for far too long, taking care of yourself first is not selfish, it is essential. Invest in yourself in all areas of your life, to include: personal services, massage therapy, body workers, counselors/coaches.Develop daily rituals that keep you feeling good. You must take care of yourself first or you will be no good to anyone else. Self-care is simply loving and honoring yourself. Loving yourself is giving to yourself. Giving to yourself allows you to share with others more fully. Being more fully present means you naturally develop less of an attachment to what goes on around you, and can instead be more relaxed and at peace. Releasing the need to control yourself, other people, and/or situations, will greatly reduce the amount of stress you experience in your life. Also helpful is relaxing, refreshing, and rejuvenating your body, mind and spirit.

Stress Relief in Minutes
For those who are suffering from stress, just about the hardest thing to find is stress relief. Stress can often continue itself on its own energy and, as it mounts up upon itself, it builds itself into an absolute mental frenzy. Unfortunately, this sort of mental frenzy is ultimately counter-productive and leaves the mind so frenzied that it cannot actually take care of whatever is causing the stress. Thus, stress relief is a way to help the mind attend to the necessities of life.
