Stress Less and Be Kind to Yourself

Be Kind Whenever Possible. It is always Possible. Dalai Lama

One way to overcome stress in our daily life is to stay focused on someone or something that inspires us. To lift our spirit, to lift us up out of our day to day turmoils, to lift us up to remember we are not alone.

HH The 14th Dalai Lama inspires me on a daily basis with his simple words of love and compassion. I went to a talk HH The Dalia Lama gave at Australia Zoo in 2007 and I remember him saying “We are more the same than we are different. I look for the sameness we have, not the differences.”

In my travels in Europe in the 1980’s I remember thinking “No matter what the language or the culture, we are all the same. Everyone wants connection and love, appreciation and to be listened to.”

stressbook1In my book How To Overcome Stress Naturally, chapter 7 is “Listen and have Compassion” the message from Brian Egan who founded Aussie Helpers for Outback farmers.

On pg 100 Brian says “The secret is to just sit down and listen to people.”

The Dalai Lama writes in the Foreword to my book How To Overcome Stress Naturally The more we care for the happiness of others, the greater our own sense of well-being becomes. Cultivating a close, warm-hearted feeling for others automatically puts the mind at ease. Developing this kind of compassion is not at all easy but it is very powerful.

Start by being kind to yourself. Stress less, Take a Deep Breath and Let Go of the tension in your body. Be Kind to Yourself. Tomorrow is another day. How can you be more gentle on yourself?

The simple ABC to Overcome Stress Naturally:

Accept yourself and love yourself the way you are.

Breathe. Take a long deep breath in and relax on the outbreath

Change your perception, Change your thinking, Change your friends!

HH The 14th Dalai Lama is in Australia 1st – 10th Dec 2009


My Religion is Simple. My Religion is Kindness. Dalai Lama
