No matter how stressed you are, there’s a way to work around it

Inner Peace

One thing I am grateful for my day job is that I constantly need to work out ways to handle the stress. Just when I thought that I am on top of something, a new level kind of stuff comes- and involves a different way of handling the situation.

In the past, I’ve thought that it was external factors that are causing the stress. Now, I am learning to take ownership- yes, there’s external factors that I cannot control- but there’s always one thing I can control….and that’s how I respond to it.

If we find that the stress in worklife and in life is too much to for us to bear, try to take a step back and reevaluate….perhaps maybe….

  • it’s because we take things too seriously?
  • we are putting a rope around our neck by being too much of a perfectionist?
  • that somewhere, we have not sort out our priorities- and so we find ourselves being swayed left and right easily by other people’s opinions and ideas
  • we need to organise and priortize
  • we should just learn to politely say “NO” when too much is on our plate
  • it’s time to delegate some tasks out

You may think that “hey, it’s easy for you to say….. wait till you are in my shoes!”.

That’s when I would like to share with you this YouTube video- you have probably seen it before- it’s a group of US Marines that are based on Afghanistan doing a remake of Britney Spear’s Hold It Against Me video. You’ll see a group of brave young men and women- facing life threatening dangers every day….and they find a way to destress by coming together and putting up this unforgetable performance:

Have a great weekend.

Happiness is here and now When I observe around me, I could almost see the connection between a person's state of mind and health condition. Years of negative emotion pent-up would manifest into illnesses. Of course, not all illness are our fault but there may be a connection in many. For example: a person working too hard and unhappy with the job condition finds he...
Why it does not pay to have a bad temper Recently, someone I know lost his dad suddenly. The report indicated that it was ‘heart failure’ but he was very puzzled because they have no prior family history of heart attacks. As there is a deeper relationship between heart ailments and a person’s emotional levels, I asked him if his dad was someone who constantly held grudges and have prob...
Harming and influencing others through dark practices like sorcery, pukau or jam... In certain parts of the world, it is known that some dabble with dark energies- directing it to make people sick, give away their money, surrender or fall in love with them. Often, the victim's reaction would be out of the norm. I decided to write this article after reading about 'pukau' or 'jampi' in the Mingguan mStar (in Malay language) publishe...
Why Thai People are So Slim Despite Having Sweet Tooth Just came back from Thailand. I noticed that the Thais take lots of rice and refined sugar. Almost every dish, and even fruits are flavoured with sugar. Even if you buy can drinks or 3-in-1, the drinks taste sweeter than the Malaysian equivalent. A lot of meat dishes are served sweet. Guess many Thais have sweet tooth. Yet, majority of Thais are...
Health problems from the stress of being managed out at work I read a viral post from Facebook that talked about a former COO (Chief Operating Officer) who shared the dirty going-ons in corporate life. When you are not liked by your boss, superiors or the management, instead of asking you to leave or offering you a severance package, what they would do is to make your life miserable so that you would resign ...
