Good morning, ladies and gentlemen!
I hear from people all the time that they are “a little stressed out.” I also hear from people that “we all get stressed” sometimes. I wholeheartedly disagree. Stress, like many other things in life, is a choice. I, personally, do not allow myself to use the word stress in describing myself, my mental or my physical state of being. In fact, if I’m not discussing the fact that I don’t believe in stress, or I’m referring to “making a point,” I don’t really even use the word. You would be amazed at how much less “stressed” you are when you eliminate the word from your vocabulary.
