Non Medicinal Stress Relievers
Just type the word stress in any search engine and it will throw out a billion pieces of information and the harm it can cause. Mankind (and even animals and plants) has always been plagued by stress from ages and it will continue to take its toll forever, unless we learn how to de-stress periodically. On our planet the number of reasons why people get stressed or agitated could run into thousands. Today, the modern crazy workplace is one of the single biggest sources of stress for employees and their families. A stressed out employee can not only cause problems for himself, but also cause various problems for all his family members. And you cannot simply ignore stress either as it is a serious health matter and will deteriorate or explode you with time. So what do you do? Unless your stress is an extreme case where only a qualified doctor can repair you, it is often possible to de-stress yourself regularly without seeking professional help. The common methods of stress reduction are reading books, articles, attending workshops or taking some prescribed medicines. However, there is another stress management technique that is simple, cost-effective, non-medicinal and extremely powerful. This is the technique of regularly reading (and rereading) "Inspirational quotes" by famous personalities over the ages. Many inspirational quotes are fast acting stress relievers, and have the power to change your life in an instant. I remember reading a true story of a bankrupt businessman on his way to commit suicide suddenly stopped in his rogue pursuit by accidentally reading an inspirational quote on some billboard. So a famous quote actually saved his life by giving him a sudden dose of inspiration to continue with life, no matter what. Such is the power of an inspirational quote. Every human being gets stressed in various doses due to external and internal forces daily. But if you read inspirational quotes regularly it can not only help you de-stress, but will also gradually experience a stark difference in the way you think, act and behave. Like tiny homeopathic medicines, these gems of wisdom can make you calmer, handle criticism, understand mankind better and become well equipped to tackle life's ups and downs.
Thousands of such gems exist and are freely available on the Internet. A few great ones are listed below. Hope you will like them, and more importantly read them regularly. Take a clear big font printout and paste it on your desk in the workplace and at home so that it hits your eye everyday. And I will bet many of your colleagues and friends will ask for a copy, or steal it when you are away!!!
"For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin - real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something that had to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then my real life would begin. At last it dawned on me that those obstacles were my real life." -Alfred D Souza
