Stress. Stress. Stress.
This morning I was messaging with one of my entrepreneurial team members about a virtual presentation for this afternoon. She is to present a short piece of information that she has been preparing for our upcoming meeting today. This person told me that she would do her best but that she did not feel well prepared.
I said to her something to the effect that it was all good and that there were no worries. AND that if she did not feel that today was the best day to present her contribution, she could do it another day and that it was all ok. It was all okay.
I really believe that lowering or removing pressures in our life, is hugely helpful for our health and well-being. Even in business, I think we can make things work with less stress on ourselves. I am all about being in JOY, and it is no different in business.
The more we can lower stress and expectations that we feel pressured by, the better it is for our health and well-being. It is so important, especially at this time in history, to move away from stress and fear and to move toward peace of mind and comfort. ♥ By lowering stress we also show love and support to our immune system. ♥
What about you?
Do you find that you put too much pressure on yourself? Or that you have too many expectations or demands put on you? Do you put these on yourself?
Even letting go of one small expectation or thing that you feel you ‘must do’, can bring a huge relief to your mind and may even be beneficial for your physical health when it comes to the body’s stress response.
When I learned about adrenaline and how it can be very toxic to our bodies, especially when it is continually running rampant, it helped me to become more conscious of lowering my stress bit by bit, and now I go through my day more aware of little ways to de-stress and to lower expectations of myself that cause me stress.
I hope you found this helpful and I wish for you less stress and more JOY in your day to day living.
And please never forget that you can and should reach out if your are feeling that you need help with your mental health. It is mental health week here in Canada and there are lots of supports and people that are always available to help.
This is from Lisa Lisson, president of FedEx Canada and I think that it is worth sharing here and a that it is a great reminder and it may inspire you or offer hope. 🙂
