Anxiety and stress will make you blind … fact?

Actually if you look at it this way you will understand what I mean …

‘Nobody ever got blind by looking at the brighter side of life’

So if you don’t look at the brighter side of life, you may go blind. Not a true blindness, but you will fail to see the nicer things in life. You will not smile at a child’s laugh, you will fail to feel happy when you see an amazing sunset, you will fail to feel joy at the birth of a friends or family member’s baby.

Stress and anxiety does distort your vision. It affects how you see the world around you. You will enjoy life less and as a result, stress and anxiety levels will continue to climb.

How can you stop stress and anxiety blindness?

Simple. Just look at the brighter side of life. I know it may be hard when you are totally stressed out. But there a lot of things you can do …

Go for a walk, whether it is in winter, spring or summer. Get outside and look up. Not vertical but look up at an angle of about fifteen degrees. This allows you brain to access the level of mind that releases stress and anxiety.

You also get to see the tops of the trees, the clouds in the sky and the birds flying by. Get out and walk, just breathing while you walk helps to relieve stress and anxiety.

A simple thing to do is to do the ‘Peter Pan’. This means think of happy thoughts, even if there are very few at present. Look into the past for memories, look into the future as being brighter and create the feeling that life is great now.

Anxiety and stress distorts your views on life. They make you feel that the brighter side of life doesn’t exist. But it does. Your view is distorted, not reality.

Thinking happier thoughts on a regular basis is a great way to ease a lot of the day to day tensions. It builds up a resistance to the bigger stress and anxiety events. After all it is said that laughter is the best medicine.

If you can’t think happy thoughts, or find it harder to look at the brighter side of life, then have a break and watch a funny movie or TV program. Kick yourself into action to see the brighter side of things.

If life is still full of stress and anxiety and you can’t see the brighter side of things … you need to do something about your stress and anxiety levels. You need to use techniques to help address your stress and use ways to reprogram your mind to eliminate your stress and anxiety.

Stress and anxiety will create ill health, either it is now or it will eventually eat away at your health. Then you will not only have the emotional stress and anxiety, you will have health anxiety and stress also.

You need to look at ways to address the underling causes of your anxiety and stress. Do not just look at the situations or events that trigger tem. Look at the ‘whys’ and ‘hows’ of stress and anxiety. Why do you suffer and how can you stop suffering.

It is a matter of teaching yourself to repel stress and anxiety, then and only then will your stress levels melt away. Without stress and anxiety you will automatically … look at the brighter side of life.
