Dealing with the Stress of Power and Purpose

"Fear less, hope more; whine less, breathe more; talk less, say more; hate less, love more; and all good things are yours." ~Swedish Proverb

What do anxiety, worry, pressure, nervousness, tension, and panic all have in common? The answer is that they are all synonyms for FEAR and result in stress.

Anxiety and Stress

These two words are often used interchangeably, but they are subtly different: anxiety expresses uneasiness of mind whereas stress is more properly associated with our physical responses to fear or the demands we place upon ourselves to perform in difficult circumstances. Whatever the cause, stress can have a detrimental effect on our health.

Whether you consider yourself to be suffering from high levels of stress or you're sick of feeling anxious, the solution is to understand the causes and their effects. Only then can you learn how best to deal with the anxiety and stress effectively.
