In brief: Mind-shift

Shift your mindset.
Stress is part of life. Goal is to remain balanced while living in stressed out world. Eat real food, exercise, meditate, laugh, do what you enjoy for some part of your day, everyday.

In brief: Stress free

Some degree of stress is necessary.
The idea is to not experience more than you have to chronically. Surges of Adrenalin and corticosteroids help us be more adaptive in the moment. Deep abdominal breathing, mindful meditation, and regulating your physical/mental states moderates stress. Thinking positively about stress is helpful. "i am overwhelmed' to "goal is worry just enough to do my job well.

In brief: Sweet

Not possible. Stress is an every day fact of life these days.
It's how you handle it that makes a difference.

Not just "these days"... it's always been this way, and always will. Stress-free is a fantasy, stress-management is the reality.
