Introduction to stress and stressful situations

When stressful situations occur we often go into over reactive mode, which in the end often creates more stress. Yet when we approach life's ups and downs from a state of ease, stress melts away. Discover how to bring more ease into your life.

What happens when you encounter a stressful situation - that huge traffic jam when you're already late for an appointment, the backlog of work piling up on your desk, the supplier or co-worker who throws a wrench in the works, the irritating relative who knows just what button to push to inflame your insides - what do you do? Do you go into stress mode; tightening your body, restricting your breath, racing your thoughts around in a gerbil wheel, collapsing into overwhelm? And does this work for you? Do you actually get there faster, become more productive, find a solution, or rise above the pettiness?

When stressful situations occur around us, it's easy to match that with a stressful reaction, yet we are free to respond in any way we want. It's natural to have an instant reaction of anger, frustration, disappointment or concern, but then to carry it with us any further only makes matters worse. So why do we do it? Because it's what we know, what we’ve learned and what we're used to doing.


Operating from a state of ease

Responding with a calm, relaxed manner might seem as though we're not taking the situation seriously or might feel like we're giving up and caving in. But in reality, operating from a state of ease brings clarity, opens up our view to additional possibilities, and keeps our energy flowing through our bodies so we can accomplish more and not be exhausted at the end of the day.

Ease is a state of being, a way of living life. Instead of resisting, it's accepting. Instead of forcing it's allowing. Instead of struggling, it's flowing. At any moment of time, in any situation, we can simply choose ease instead of stress.
