What people have said about Stress

A lot of stress arises from regret for the past and fear of the future.

Rosemary A. Payne

Stress is like spice - in the right proportion it enhances the flavour of a dish. Too little produces a bland, dull meal; too much may choke you.

Donald Tubesing

It's not stress that kills us, it is our reaction to it.

Hans Selye

Life is not the way it's supposed to be. It's the way it is.? The way you cope with it is what makes a difference.

Virginia Satir

Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are.

Chinese Proverb

Reality is the leading cause of stress for those in touch with it.

Jane Wagner

Every stress leaves an indelible scar, and the organism pays for its survival after a stressful situation by becoming a little older.

Hans Selye

Worrying can lead to stress. What do we accomplish when we worry? Focus your mind on actions rather than on worrying! Action brings less stress.

Catherine Pulsifer

A pleasure a day keeps stress away.

Ethel Roskies

There is no need to go to India or anywhere else to find peace. You will find that deep place of silence right in your room, your garden or even your bathtub.

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Humour, a great stress reliever! Laugh, be happy and have less stress!

Catherine Pulsifer

The future is largely determined by the way we handle the present.

Rosemary A. Payne

Stress is not necessarily something bad it all depends on how you take it. The stress of exhilarating, creative successful work is beneficial, while that of failure, humiliation or infection is detrimental.

Hans Selye

When you find yourself stressed, ask yourself one question: Will this matter in 5 years from now? If yes, then do something about the situation. If no, then let it go.

Catherine Pulsifer

Stress is an ignorant state. It believes that everything is an emergency.

Natalie Goldberg

The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another.
