The best way to make decisions is
go after what it is that creates 'meaning'
in your life and then 'trust yourself' to
handle the stress that follows!
Researchers estimated that over the eight years they were tracking deaths 182,000 americans died prematurely not from stress but from the belief that stress is bad for you that is over 20,000 deaths a year!
Conclusion: when you change your mind about stress you can change your body's response to stress!
In a study conducted at harvard university before they went through the social stress tests they were taught to rethink their stress responses helpful, that pounding heart is preparing you for action, if you're breathing faster it's no problem it's getting more oxygen to your brain and participants who learned to view the stress response as helpful for their performance, they were less stressed out, less anxious, more confident but the most fascinating finding was how their physical stress response changed.
Their heart was still pounding but this is a much healthier cardiovascular profile. It actually looks a lot like what happens in moments of joy and courage.
So hopefully the next time your heart is pounding from stress you're going through, remember this and you're going to think or talk out loud to yourself:
"This is my body helping me rise to this challenge" and when you view stress in that way your body believes you and your stress response becomes healthier!
When oxytocin is released in the stress response, it is motivating you to seek support, your biological stress response is nudging you to tell someone how you feel instead of bottling it up. Your stress response wants to make sure you notice when someone else in your life is struggling so that you can support each other. When life is difficult your stress response wants you to be surrounded by people who care about you!

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
