Each person has unique things that cause stress. Some folk get stressed with job interviews while others get stressed with traveling to new places. Mostly, I don’t get stressed about much, except when I’m meeting heaps of new people. I appreciate that this shouldn’t be something stressful for me, but shouldn’t doesn’t change reality.
No matter what causes you to be stressed, here are some helpful pointers:
- peace on the inside can help to mitigate external pressure: Jesus is our Prince of Peace, so it helps me to remember that His leadership in my heart brings peace
- perspective: things change, time passes and you grow; rarely is stress a permanent state of being
- past inventory: count up some things from the past that have been stressful and consider how God has helped you to overcome & resolve those challenges. God is the same today 🙂
