Sounds odd, eh?
I thought so too.
Until I discovered mindfulness.
Mindfulness is simply the practice of being, truly being, in each moment.
Not the past.
Not the future.
And as I started to work on this, guess what happened?
My stress began to evaporate.
What I discovered was that my stress emanated from the thoughts I had that were…
- Steeped in the past (regrets).
- Worries about the future ( I realized that 99.9% of the things I worried about never happened).
As I began to really embrace these facts…
I realized that I had complete control over them.
- Not someone else.
- Not something else.
This was the first time I chose to take ownership of my level of stress.
My stress level went waaaay down.
My level of happiness went waaaay up!
Pretty cool, eh?
Ready to give it a shot?
Start with trying to stay in the present moment for just 5 minutes today.
And 10 minutes tomorrow.

It takes practice.
And it is well worth it.
What have you got to lose?
Right… your stress!
Now… it’s time for me to go practice…
