Ahhhh.... that nasty word.... Stress.
It is quite sad that this little word - only five letters... can cause shallow breathing, heart racing and panic. Coupled with this time of the year. Everyone is rushing, their to do lists a mile long and not getting any shorter.
Each morning, after my prayers..... I say over and over in my head "stressfree." Actually it is working. That is not to say that I still do not have a few panic attacks during the day... but they are shorter and less panicky . I realize after the fourth breath that I will be alright. I will make it through this minor crisis and life is good.
Repeat the mantra "stressfree, stressfree, stressfree....." I do not promise perfection - but maybe a little bliss.
