This Is Going To Sound Controversial, But There's No Such Thing As Stress

This Is Going To Sound Controversial, But There's No Such Thing As Stress | skillful means for conscious living | Scoop.it
Stress doesn't actually exist. Now, I know this may sound a little controversial, but please bear with me. There is no stress ; just thoughts that we perceive as stressful.
this time this space's insight:

Becoming stressed out is a choice we make between our ears based on faulty perceptions. It's a choice we make when we  are operating in "everyday" consciousness mode and our perceptions are strongly influenced by attachment to beliefs and aversions, mental set (optimistic or pessimistic),how much control we have over situations, and our resilence level. By making the shift into the observer mode and practicing mindfulness we can learn how to choose not to stress out.

Does Mindfulness Stress You Out?

Does Mindfulness Stress You Out? | skillful means for conscious living | Scoop.it

Sounds like a paradox, right? By all common logic, we shouldn't be stressed out if we're practicing mindfulness or meditation. We hear over and over in the news how those practices are supposed to help us relax. Yet I hear over and over from clients that the whole concept of mindfulness provokes anxiety. It's time to strip down the concept of mindfulness and make it accessible to everyone.
