Stressful Lifestyle are becoming common these days. Even students are becoming stressful because of increasing competition in studies.
Life is full of challenges. Each day is packed with several situations. Most of them are absolutely unpredictable, unexpected and many escape from our control. A situation, to generate stress, doesn’t even need to be negative. In fact, according to scientists, the most stressful situations are positive. Getting married to the love of your life and having children, no matter how much you want it, are two clear examples of this complex problem.
Is stress always generated solely by changes and unexpected events?
Of course, stress doesn’t only result from big changes or unexpected surprises. It mainly arises from everyday routine, for over a million reasons and from the tiniest and most insignificant moments; like a flat tire or a five minute blackout.
What becomes very important to understand is that there are no such things as stressful situations. Situations are neutral. They aren’t happy, sad, frightening or pleasant. A flat tire is nothing but a flat tire; it only becomes a problem when we decide it is a problem. We certainly don’t mean to turn situations into problems, this happens because we aren’t aware of our capacity to choose, as we don’t recognize all the different possibilities that are available to us.Our Interpretation is crucial, as well as our Reaction.
