There is only one life.
The ideal way to approach it is to enjoy whatever you do and celebrate all small occasions. Life is just like a coin with two sides. It can bring hardships at one time and it can bring fortune at another time. Make sure that situations, however adverse they may be, do not affect you negatively. This does not mean that we should neglect adverse situations or become irresponsible. However, we should not let our emotional or stress baggage close our eyes to the beauty of life.
Dwelling on things
Do not take every thing in life seriously and personally. Certain things in life are bound to leave you hurt, but the more you think of it, the more your body and mind gets filled with negative energy. Bad situations should be changed by dealing it positively. If you are feeling bad about being unemployed, the best way to get over it is to try for new job either as a freelancer or a full time job. Use the opportunity to pursue a passion you have ignored for some time. Brooding over the situation is not going to improve the situation but might make things worse. If you have met with an unwarranted comment, pass it off or deal with it humorously.
Moving out with your family and spending more time with your friends is sure to leave you happy as you will be listening and talking more. Friends and family can help you move on from unpleasant situations. Once you allow your mind to focus on something you really like, it will help you to approach things differently and positively and change your outlook to life. The more you spend time in the company of loved ones,the more positive you become by absorbing their positive energy towards you. If you have children ,spending time with them will surely make you tension free (well, teenagers excepted).
It is better to allow the child in you to step out of your soul always as you approach the tension of the world..it is bound to reduce your stress.
