Stressed and Blessed

2 Nov

I have moments where I am grateful for the success that I have. The opportunities that come my way and the new people I meet every single day. However, being successful comes with a lot of stress. Trying to pursue multiple projects at once, work and maintain a social life can leave little room for personal growth. It is important on this journey to success that you develop a separate identity from you work, family and relationships.

How do you go about that?

1. Give yourself space to breath from your own success.  Schedule personal time each day or week. Give yourself time to mediate on other things outside of your success. Volunteer for a day or read a book about a subject you know nothing about.

2. Pray your stress away.  Any way you choose to pray, do it.

3. Do not spend every second planning your new step. Letting things happen organically sometimes is the best way to success.  Let opportunities come to you for a change.

4. Collaborate with others on their success. Volunteer to mentor someone or help a friend or family in need.

How do you relax from all the stress created from your success?

Those are my suggestions. Have a great weekend.

    Awesome article. I also exercise and work out 4-5 days a week to relieve stress and keep my physical being healthy. It’s truly a complimenting appreciation of ones mental, spiritual and financial health when they all are in harmony with ones soul and higher conciousness.

      Great suggestions Samah. I recently decided to go back to school to follow my dream, I also work 40-50 hours a week, care for 2 children, a husband and volunteer on 2 separate boards. Can you say super busy? I find meditation, prayer and exercise help relieve my stress tremendously. Honestly, I can feel the difference in my mental and physical state when I don’t do it. Meditation centers your mind and soul to joyfully receive the good and bad out of every day. Stay blessed.

        Well you are more stressed than I am. I will say women are more stressed out than men are. I know in the future there is more stress to come. I wish you well. God bless you.

      Thanks for commenting. I agree that when your finances, health and emotional well being are in sync you are less stressed. I know as a recent grad my finances are not as great since I do not have a high paying job which can lead to stress. It is a work in progress though.
