If you focus on the negative in any situation, you can expect high stress levels.
However, if you try and see the good in the situation, your stress levels will greatly diminish.”
Of course there will be times when you experience stress; however, it’s how you allow yourself to react to those moments that will measure your ability to overcome the stress associated with it.
