You are not alone. We are very stressed out as a culture. I believe a huge part of the problem is our inability to slow down. We try to fit way too much in a day. There are all kinds of stress in the course of our daily lives.
Work, Children, Relationships, Money. Think about how many of these things affect our lives every single day.
I have Generalized Anxiety and I probably did my whole life.
As I got older it became harder and harder to deal with. I am also a worrier, as many women are. A what-iffer. I would always think about what could happen.
Someone suggested I read “A New Earth”. Well, that book and the Mindfulness philosophy literally changed my life.
What is Mindfulness?
The practice of maintaining a state of heightened awareness of ones thoughts, emotions or experiences on a moment to moment basis
How It Works
Ego is the structure in your brain that gives you Identity. It is a negative based energy that feeds on negative/ fear based thoughts. Which therefore is responsible for the negative realities in your life.
If I had this or them I would be happy right? No! What it does is feed what causes Anxiety, Worry, Anger and Unhappiness.
We are addicted to the inner conditioning of ego based thinking, Shallow Outlook, and False Realities.
I can tell you it is a constant struggle I find myself in and so do most people. What we think we have to have isn’t really going to make us happy. It just stresses us out. Judging others just taints our soul. Constantly consumed with tomorrow and what’s next poisons us. There is a way to achieve a lighter ego but it’s not easy.
