How to manage stress?


The first time I came to United States, wherever I went, I heard this term stress management. I could not understand. Because in my understanding we manage things which are precious to us. Our families, our businesses, our money, our property, whatever is precious to us we will manage that. Why would somebody want to manage stress? I couldn’t get it for some time. Then I realized people have made a conclusion that stress is an extra limb that they have in their body, stress is an appendage that they cannot get rid of. Stress is not a part of you. You get stressful because you do not know how to handle your mind . No attention has been paid as to how to handle this mind, how to handle this emotion, how to handle this body, how to handle these energies. Nothing has been done about it. You’re managing such a sophisticated system accidentally. So you being stressful is a natural outcome of such unconscious living. There is no other way to be. Don’t think your job is stressful. Now you’re a student, being a student is stressful. If you don’t find employment when you come out of the college, that is stressful. If you get a job, even more stressful. If you don’t get married, that is very stressful. If you get married, I don’t want to say anything. You don’t have children, that is stressful. If you have children, you pull your hair out with stress. So it is not your job or your life situations which are stressful. Stress is happening to you because of your inability to manage your own system. Not knowing how to manage the system is stressfulness. If this happened the way you want it, you wouldn’t be stressful.
