Stress is the creation of your own mind, which you can manage and get rid of yourself. The stress always has cause(s), most of which lye within us. You should try to find them and eliminate if you can. Finding the cause is the first major step towards stress management followed by its elimination. Stress can be due to external or internal causes that depend on our own thinking. Granted that elimination of the cause might not be possible all the time because certain causes are beyond human reach, even then, effects of many can be minimized through fixing the priorities and making positive changes in life style and thought pattern. The first thing you can immediately do is to stop telling yourself that you are stressed. This one step alone can help you to be calm and relaxed. Give it a try; you don’t have to spend anything or go anywhere to do so. All that you have to do is to modify your thoughts. By the way, it might be not be “very” easy though but is worth trying.
Your subconscious mind can certainly help you. If you have not already learned the techniques of using the power of your subconscious mind,, you can learn now. It is never too late. If you are consciously willing to do it, use the techniques correctly and also try to eliminate the cause to make your life stress free; redesign your thought patters. If you can do that, you would do a great favor to yourself.
