Wherever I went, I heard this term – Stress management. I could not understand because my understanding we manage things which are precious to us like our family, our businesses, our money or property… Whatever is precious to us, we will manage that.
Why somebody would want to manage stress?
I couldn’t get it for some time, then I realized that people had made a conclusion that stress is an extra limb that they have in their body. Stress is an appendage that they cannot get rid of. STRESS is not a part of you. You get stressful because you do not know how to handle your mind. NO attention has been paid as to how to handle this mind? How to handle this emotion? How to handle this body? How to handle these energies? Nothing has been done about it. You’re managing such a sophisticated system accidentally so you are being stressful is a natural outcome; upset and conscious living. There is no other way to be.
Don’t think that your job is stressful.
Now you’re a student, being a student is stressful!
If you don’t find employment when you come out of the college/universities that is stressful!
If you get a job even more stressful!
If you don’t get married that is very stressful! If you get married … 😀 I don’t wanna say anything 😛
If you don’t have children that is stressful!
If you have children you pull your head out with stress! 😀
So it is not your job or your life situations which are stressful. Stress is happening to you because of your inability to manage your own system, not knowing how to manage the system is stressful.
If this happened the way you wanted, you wouldn’t be stressful. If you do a simple engineering process just 21 minutes a day. Today, you take your pulse rate before and after food – do it for 6 weeks. Check your pulse rate and see it will be considerably down, which essentially shows the same level of activity. This is a simple indicator, there are many other parameters that you could check. But this is an extremely a simple indicator for which you don’t have to go to any laboratory; you can check it yourself. The loading up of pulse with the same level of activity indicates that your system is going at an easier pace. That means it works much more efficiently.
If you drive your car, at 2000 RPM the engine will last hundred thousand kilometers or miles. If you drive the same engine at 5000 RPM it may last only 50000 miles or less, simply because it unnecessarily harried up. So, if this can do everything that has to at an easy pace that means it’s happening efficiently.
Any machine which has the least amount of friction within itself happens efficiently naturally produces more with the least amount of stress. It is definitely the time that you do some inner-engineer.
