3 Things to Avoid in 2016 for Less Stress




Any time you blame yourself or another person take a step back from the situation and ask yourself what are you refusing to take responsibility for…it may come down to taking responsibility for your own sense of inner peace, joy and happiness. Too often we look outside of us for that which we can only access within our interior castle. So the next time you blame something or someone for your feelings of frustration ask yourself: “what do I need to remember in order to release my need for a certain response from the world around me in order to feel good about myself.” Stress is the power we give to outside circumstance to define our worth, value and capability. Jesus offers us an awesome example of self examination as he posed a simple question to a mob of “blamers” when he said, “he who is without sin, cast the first stone.” This is earth school, when we pass the class to take responsibility for ourselves, including our ability to step away from the blame game and tune into creative solutions, we will experience less stress and more confidence and inner peace.




Complaining of any kind creates an exchange of negative energy between you and yourself OR between you and another person which has the ability to shrink your brain size and boost the stress response.

Raise your awareness in the New Year of your inner self talk and the intonation you use as your thoughts flow through your mind.  Choose to lighten your mental load by creating a positive choice of response to each situation.

Remember that you have the ability to create what you desire to receive simply by your choice of response to life.

Be curious and fascinated about events and reactions that you experience throughout each day and look at them as an opportunity to grow in your ability to love and create goodness in this world.




Stress shoots through this gateway of response to life like poop through a goose. Be aware of the different faces of entitlement.  Any time you have an expectation or assumption of a specific outcome or response from life you are stuck in the muck of entitlement, which will limit your ability to explore and tune into creative options.  Entitlement too often slithers in under our mental radar and creates instant feelings of dis-satisfaction. “I deserve better” cries the voice of not-enoughness. Keep watch on this little thief of unhappiness. Have you ever paused to marvel over the gift of water as you unconsciously turn on the faucet? How about stepping out of bed and actually standing up? Replace any shred of “I am entitled to more thinking” with “I am so grateful, so blessed to be alive and capable of moving about in this world.”


I remember reflecting on the following thought after emerging from advanced cancer back into restoration: “The only thing I am entitled to when it really comes down to it on this journey of life is this: to know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I am known and loved by God, every other perk in life, including my ability to see, hear, feel, taste and touch is a gift worth celebrating each and every day I am gifted with life.”
