Stress is one of the WORST things you can do for both your mental and even physical health!
So WHY do we do it?
It's ingrained into our psyche that if we worry about something long enough, we'll eventually find a solution.
But that never seems to happen, does it?
We just keep adding and piling on more problems, until our mind just says "THAT'S IT, WE'RE SHUTTING DOWN!" Then you have a situation.
A SERIOUS situation.
And NOTHING gets accomplished.
When I get like this, I take a break.
I grab my Cheetos, my faithful dogs and I shuttle my butt to my bed, where I binge watch YouTube videos.
Seriously, I do this!
And you know what happens?
Within a few hours the answer to my worry comes to me.
Right in the middle of watching Green Acres reruns.
Because I let go and quieted my mind.
I gave it a CHANCE to ALLOW the solution to come through to me.
Next time your feeling overwhelmed and like your about to spiral out of control, grab your pets and your snacks and get busy relaxing!

A consistent meditation practice quickens the pace at which we are able to forgive and let go.
This weekend we were in Nantucket. Out to dinner at some bustling bistro in the downtown area. And we got into a tiff. And in the process some ancient wound that I hadn’t felt in a long time was reaggravated and I felt myself sink into a place of coldness and anger. Like I had so many times in years past about this very issue. But amazingly, this weekend, I was able to crawl out. Actually, crawl is not the right word, more like LEAP out. I reminded myself that I was in a beautiful place with my favorite person. And that the result of these kinds of arguments is always that we forgive and move on. Why not just do it faster?
So I did. I focused on the delicious broccoli cauliflower Caesar salad that was in front of us. And the feeling started to pass. And then I asked about Mike’s work, which had brought us to the island, and listened. And we ended up having just about the perfect night 💛 .
The thing is that in the past I would have tried to do the same thing. I would have tried to let it go; I would have tried to focus on something else. But I just wouldn’t have been able to. The difference today is that I’ve developed my concentration through my meditation practice. Everyday, for over a year, I’ve been practicing letting go of thoughts that arise. Every single day. And the reward is that I get to experience nights like these as lovely, rich moments rather than as nights wasted in sulking and feeling sorry for myself... Learn to control your mind and your reactions and watch your life open up. 🔥 #keepgoing #practiceandalliscoming #meditatedaily
Maybe we're all just hungry for love... Too stubborn to admit it... trying to find happiness in things we know are only a temporary escape.
So how about we call a spade a spade and stop trying to pretend. Let's open our hearts... Loving can be risky... But oh... Isn't it worth it?!
