The way that I handle stress is by recognizing that the only reason I feel the way I do, whether it be happy or sad, is because of how I am choosing to respond to the world around me. A lot of people struggle with things because they react to a situation. Rather than allowing yourself to react to something, consciously respond instead. Your mental relationship with life then becomes a series of choices. We can’t control life, but we can control our choices. By doing this, stress also becomes a choice. Many of these ideas are originally from Sadhguru, and I like them.
