Stress is a Marble - Spin It Your Way
Stress doesn't just suddenly appear.
There are cumulative events that lead to stress.
And talking about 'good' stress vs. 'bad' stress
is the same as talking about 'good' and 'bad' poison.
'Good' poison doesn't exist & neither does 'good' stress.
Move past 'managing or eliminating' stress.
Embrace "preventing" stress altogether.
Yes, it is truly possible to learn & use skills that lead to a stress-free life.
