Where Does Your Stress Come From?
15 August 2016
WHERE DOES YOUR STRESS COME FROM? Anxiety, tension, stress, worry – all of these are forms of fear caused by too much time spent in the future, and not enough time spent in the present.
The present is the moment that seeds the future, so discipline your mind to focus on this moment of creation, instead of seeding things you don’t want happening. Staying present is the best way to manifest the positive aspects of your future. Remind yourself to stay present when you get too far ahead of yourself and imagine the worst.
