Sadhguru’s five tips on how to manage stress

gmail

Stress is an inevitable part of the modern world. While we hear words like ‘stress management’ thrown around all the time, Sadhguru believes that it is pointless to ‘manage’ something that one doesn’t need. What we need, he strongly opines, is balance. He believes that when your body and mind work in a syncretic manner, life becomes joyful and stress-free. His tips for a stress-free life?

1. Manage your life. Not your stress.
Stress stems from your system’s inability to take orders from your brain. Once you assume control over yourself, external factors will lose their ability to cause you stress.

2. Don’t be driven. Drive yourself.
Ambition is overrated. Once you commit to doing your work willingly and joyfully, you will find that your productivity increases manifold. It might seem contraindicatory but you are more likely to achieve your ambition if you do not stress yourself about it.

3. Never lose perspective.
Look at things in context. The quality of your life does not depend on its simplicity or its complexity. It is a function of the way you view it.

4. Happiness should not be a goal.
The pursuit of happiness is codified in certain constitutions, but chasing happiness is a sure way to remaining unhappy. Learn to appreciate the moment, and find joy in it. Happiness will automatically follow.

5. Be happy with what you have
Stress and unhappiness arise not out of wanting something for yourself, but out of wanting what someone else has. True well-being comes from being content within yourself. Divesting yourself of petty jealousies and envy is a step in the right direction. Remember that the only person you can change is yourself.
