Stop Doing This if You Want to Be Happier and Live Longer…

21 Aug

Do you want to be happier and live longer?

That may seem like a dumb question, but if you really pay attention to the way many people conduct their lives, then you may start to wonder if the question is even dumb at all.

For example, in this month’s newsletter, we discuss the results of a new study concluding that being nagged by a spouse can increase a person’s risk of premature death. It also claims that men are slightly more at risk than women.

Now, this is not a man vs. women thing. Either way you look at it, it is not good and is totally preventable.

It seems like this all boils down to…

Stress and How
You Handle It

It is a fact, stress kills and it does not discriminate. It does not matter who or what the source is, whether it is a nagging spouse or an over-demanding job. Stress is bad for you.

Well, let’s clarify that. Your reaction to stress is bad for you.

You see, there is some stress you can decrease or even eliminate from you life. For example, if you have a pain-in-the-you-know-what friend, you can choose to have less interaction with him or her or even get rid of them completely. Yes, you can actually do that.

But other stresses are simply out of your control. No matter where you live and what you do for a living, there will always be some stress in your life.

What you can change DRASTICALLY is how you deal with stress.

There is a popular saying, “Embrace the grind.” You can also, “Embrace the stress.”

Motivational speaker Wayne Dyer is quoted as saying, “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”

This is why two people can live the exact same life and one can be happy and the other miserable.

Choose to be the happy one.
