How to Avoid Building Up Bodily Tension and Consistently Feel Relaxed

How to Avoid the #1 Body Stressor

  • Focusing on avoiding worst-case scenarios (instead of seeking best-case ones)
  • Making decisions based on fear (instead of on opportunity)
  • Constant self-loathing (instead of self-love)

“A man who suffers before it is necessary, suffers more than is necessary.”

Your worrying is literally killing you. All this unreleased bodily stress negatively influences your relationships, quality of work, sleep, health, mood, and attitude.

You’ll Never Win the Comparison Game. Do This Instead.

Ignore what other people are doing. Ignore what’s going on around you. There is no competition. There is no objective benchmark to hit. There is simply the best you can do — that’s all that matters.

Instead of wasting away in mediocrity playing the comparison game, choose to spend that time working on yourself instead.

Don’t Be So Emotionally Rigid. Be Flexible and Gracious With Yourself.

  • I am a great father
  • I’m an introvert
  • I’m a piece of crap
  • I am a great father in a lot of ways, but there are also times when I am controlling and selfish with my kids
  • I am an introvert, but sometimes I’m a huge extrovert
  • I feel like a piece of crap, but I’m also a reliable, trustworthy friend and colleague

“Alive, a man is supple, soft; in death, unbending rigor. All creatures, grass and trees, alive and plastic, are pliant, too, and in death all feeble and dry. Unbending rigor is the mate of death, and yielding softness, the company of life.”

Unbending rigor resembles death and stress; fluidity and flexibility resemble a healthy body. Embrace your flexibility and full spectrum of emotions, and you reduce stress mightily.
