Stress Bomb

You stand frozen as if made of stone. There before you the timer ticks down slowly. 30 seconds you have that long to run or fight, the red numbers flick down slowly 20 seconds you’ve wasted 10 seconds already. Time is running out on you your brain normally bustling with thoughts and ideas is now frozen, not a single thought crossing its surface a still lake of your thoughts that normally roar like the sea. 10 seconds you have ten seconds left as time marches on. 9…8…7…6…5… You tremble 4…3…2 You whimper …1…”Why me?”…0…

This probably hasn’t happened to you before, chances are if it had you wouldn’t be able to read this. Yet we as humans act as if often impossible scenarios are exactly the same. We let ourselves get easily stressed when in realistically what is stressing us is not that big of a deal. Stress and worry is something we all feel and it is probably one of the biggest negatives you could let into your life (I feel like I’m slowly descending into madness or possibly awakening my inner psychologist). Though stress in, must stress(pun), in small quantities is good for us as it allowed us to know what is directly affecting us. We as humans tend to allow too much stress into our lives and this leads to negative side effects varying from socially detrimental all the way to fatal.

A second problem with stress is the manner in which it is treated. Often you would find that a parent or older person would put down the stress felt by those younger, in the belief that the stress they experience is “nothing” compared to what they have to handle. The greatest problem with this is that those in the older generation(s) do not realise that though the stress they feel may be more intense to them the younger generation(s) own stress is something that weighs heavily upon them. As the younger generation having lived a shorter amount of time has experienced less, and so to them the stress they feel is the largest possible amount of stress as far as their experience permits.

The third and final problem with stress is the how it comes or how we create it. We often worry about lots of things that there is no need to worry about. In my limited experience I have found that;
55% of things that we worry about will never happen.
30% of the things that we worry about have already happened.
14% of the things we worry about we can do nothing about.
And only 1% of the things we worry about will actually happen.

So quite simply I believe the best thing we can possibly do is learn to live and let go. To do this we need to do stress relieving things like;
Reading books
Eating healthy
And all those other things that may sound very cliché. Yet maybe we are told these same methods over and over again for a reason, because they actually work and have proven to be the best methods possible.

Oh and to explain the six day absence I was away from home and my phone was not working.
