Is Living Stress-Free Possible? July 5 Inspiration

Stress-free living…hmmm, is that really possible? Stress-free, to me, means peace and freedom from anxiety, and deliverance from all the accompanying ill health effects caused by stress. My life has been busier than usual AND a bit stressful, with all that’s been going on with the family over the past three weeks. Now I’m trying to get back on a smooth track!

So here’s some inspiration for this day…

“Many people today are stressed out

beyond anything a human being

was ever meant to endure.

Every person is very different,

uniquely created by God’s design.

What is complicated for one

may be simple for another.

Don’t compare yourself with other people.

But when faced with a problem

or difficult circumstance,

you must ask yourself,

‘What would Jesus have me do

in this situation?

 How would He handle it?’

Jesus was not stressed out or burned out.

He was not controlled by circumstances

or the demands of other people.

In John 14:6, Jesus said,

‘I am the Way.’

His way is the right way–

the way that will lead

to righteousness, peace, and joy.

Jesus prayed that His enjoyment

would fill your soul,

and it will when you learn

to take His approach to life

and its many different challenges.”

–Joyce Meyer in “Ending Your Day Right”

My reflections:

Yes, this is an important lesson to learn, and I obviously have NOT mastered it yet! Balance is the key to life, so I’ve heard numerous times!

So what are YOUR thoughts?

Have you achieved a stress-free life yet?

If not, what steps are you taking to balance your life’s demands and manage your time to relieve stress?

  4. It’s important to make sure that you’re never controlled by your stress because once that happens, you’ll start to become the toxic person that you hate. Stress is a feeling we cannot avoid but we can definitely get rid of. It’s all about our attitude and how we react to stress.

  5. Everyone needs a little stress in their lives too keep them on their toes, just not too much of it and staying positive helps a lot

  7. Battle with computer for the forces of good against evil all day. Computer won. Yes, there is a lot of stress in the modern world. Think running from bears and cats with just a club for defense and a sick baby and no doctors had a lot of stress too. Hopefully, we’re built for it.

  8. Nice post, very informative. Thanks!

  9. Stress is such a mood killer and it causes you to be toxic as well. I would love to never deal with stress and you can, not that you can avoid it, but you can choose not to deal with it at least. With a positive mind set, I’m sure it’s possible!

  10. I think we can’t have a life which is stress-free but we can choose to be stress-free if we really want to.

  11. just this morning, i cried for a me time. Having a lot of kids may sometimes be stressful.

  12. I think we created a society that is in general so full of stress on all levels we don’t even react anymore – hence the surprise when we get sick due to it.

  13. Stress free is the goal, highly sought but not so easy to get to. Life has a way of getting in the way.

    Prayer and meditation can help a lot to get you closer to the ideal.

  14. This is so true! It is very easy to allow our problems from the past to creep into our today and keep us off track.

  15. I guess its possibility depends on how you manage daily life problems.

  16. I think it is possible to be stress-free. It just has to do with our mindset. I guess that is true.

  17. right now the only stress i have is time. time to do both my day job which i dont enjoy and time to pursue my dream which i do enjoy finding that balance is hectic. great post.

  18. I don’t think it’s possible to lead a stress free life. Of course, there is good stress and bad stress. Dealing with stress is what makes it liveable.

  19. Living stress-free is not a possibility for me. Never will be.

  20. I think it is always a choice. We cannot avoid stress in our life but we can always overcome it.

  21. I don’t really know if I’ll ever have a stress free life. To much stress going on lately. I think if you have a great mindset that you can go stress free though.

  22. I took control of my life this Summer and yes, I am stress free. I’m living by my own rules and enjoying every minute of it!

  23. I have been trying to reduce the amount of stress I have. It is important to learn how to deal with it properly. I like to relax in a hot bath at the end of the day to destress.

  24. I definitely haven’t achieved a stress-free life. I’m constantly worrying and feeling the burden of mounting work and not enough time to juggle everything.

  25. Stress is normal thing I guess. But if you are eaten by the stress, that is not good. Learn to motivate yourself and know your worth. In this case, stress will be lessen.

  26. I think once you have kids the chances of achieving a stress-free life goes out the window. But at the end of the day, I love my life.

  27. I guess stress is just around the corner. We should just entertain it on moderation 🙂

  28. A stress free life is only possible to a certain degree. There are exterior factors which we cannot control, like illness, unemployment and so on which will invariably determine the level of our stress.

  29. I find for my self I stress out over the unknown. Simple what you can’t control it add stress.
    But there must be a spiritual or a scientific reason why people stresses out…I know if our stress hormone “adrenaline” didn’t kick in way back and I mean way back. We wouldn’t advance into today world.
    Well we still need the fight or flight in all of us.

    Coffee is on

  30. I have learned to go with the flow. It’s much easier. Think of a rock in a river. The water simply flows around it, even though it’s an obstacle. That’s my motto. Go with the flow. Thanks for sharing.
