I absolutely love this video which illustrates perfectly how stress affects us.
Stress is often a result of wanting things to be different from how they are right now.
But sometimes we really do need to let go of the constant need for change and accept things how they are in this present moment.
That doesn’t mean giving up on our goals or letting others walk over us.
Reducing stress is about changing our attitude to what is happening; learning to let go of the need for control, to forgive, to move on, to accept.
We need to accept the things we cannot change and have courage to change the things we can. But more importantly, we need to have the wisdom to know the difference.
Put the glass down!
