Curiously, it’s not only work demands, traffic jams or a parent’s death that are stressful. Joyous events such as marriage or landing the job of your dreams can catapult you into distress. Your body can’t tell the difference between Positive or Negative Stress—it reacts the same way to both types.
If exciting, positive changes are on your horizon, take extra-good care of yourself using some of these tips. The situation, good or bad, is simply what it is. If you get caught up in your reaction to it and let your mind run wild, you’ll feel stressed.
Try to interpret events from a neutral place, and stress will shrink to manageable proportions. The world is uncontrollable. The only thing you can control is your response to it.
