Are you looking for the answer to, “How to Feel Less Stressed”?

If you are, you are not the only one.

When I searched, “How to Feel Less Stressed” on Google this morning I got 153 million results.

And that’s just on Google (because there are other search engines you know 🤔)

I am not sure about you but if I was looking for how to feel less stressed and I came across that number, I suspect I would feel a whole lot more stressed.

Where do I start?
What’s the best thing to do?
Which thing is right for me?

These are some of the questions which might go rushing through my head (THOUGHT)

There would be more noise in an already noisy system (THOUGHT).


If you are feeling stressed, it is because you already have a very noisy system (LOTS OF THOUGHTS).

That’s not your fault!

Over years and years of human conditioning, we were taught that stress is created by our circumstances (THOUGHT).

That led to us trying to control our circumstances to feel better (MORE THOUGHT).

It also led to the rise of stress management; seeking how to feel less stressed (MORE THOUGHT).

This was for us to manage ourselves when it seemed we couldn’t control the outside world.

I hope you can see the theme now!

THOUGHT is what tells your system to pump adrenaline and cortisol into your blood stream causing you to feel stressed.

The rampant stress hormone signal does not come from anywhere other than THOUGHT.

Those signals do not come from outside of you.

So if someone gives you, “how to feel less stressed” instructions, they are adding more noise (THOUGHT) into your already noisy system (FULL OF THOUGHTS).

The alternative is UNDERSTANDING STRESS.

Because like any other system, once we understand it, we do better – just like learning to drive.

So how about something that doesn’t give you anything to do and still helps you to have more calm, clarity and contentment?
