Stress and Emotions
There is one emotion that plays an important role within the stress and emotions scheme of things. This emotion is fear.
Fear fosters negativity and will dictate to a large extent how you view life as a whole.
When we feel fear, we are tense, our heart beats fast, we have sweaty hands, upset stomach and so on. This is our stress response kicking into gear. It then, is only natural that when the emotion of fear is reduced in your life, stress will automatically follow suit.
Wouldn't it be nice to: - Walk into a room full of strangers and turn them into friends. - Be a self-coach rather than your own worst critic. - Converse with comfort and never again worry about what to say. - Go places alone and have fun instead of being intimidated. - Spring free from the comparison trap and remove the fears that block your paths to the future.

We tend to stall, so to speak, in this position and dwell on trying to hold on rather than looking to see what could be ahead.
Individuals tend to view things negatively when something has occurred that alters or disrupts their lives. Negativity will only hinder the efforts of finding an acceptable solution. By always looking at the negative side, you will find that you can easily double or triple your worry.
What if the ground collapses below my feet? What if the world ends tomorrow? “What if” questions make you prone to exaggeration and highly irrational thinking, increasing the number of confusing thoughts in your mind and piling on unneeded stress. When you place more of your focus on inner peace the ‘What ifs’ can’t penetrate your thoughts.
