In ‘poetry’ form, and on a serious note …

Iffing Stress


If booze is causing stress, stop drinking it.
If work is causing stress, change jobs.
If bad health is causing stress, become healthy.
If the news is causing stress, stop listening to it.
If television is causing stress, stop watching it.
If EMF is causing stress, move away from it.
If people are causing stress, grow beyond them.
If life is causing stress, redesign it.
If lies are causing stress, stop telling them.
If unpaid bills are causing stress, learn about money.
If negative energy is causing stress, transform or drop it.
If environmental influences are causing stress, get away from them.
If low income is causing stress, earn more money.
If climate change is causing stress, change something.
If smoking is causing stress, give it up.
If drought is causing stress, plant trees or sponsor them massively.
If flooding is causing stress, ditto. And move.
If attitudes are causing stress, find new companions.
If toxins are causing stress, become educated and make better choices.
If weakness is causing stress, study and learn courage.
If antagonism is causing stress, ask yourself WHY?

Whatever iffing thing is causing negative stress, face it head on and deal with it.

Good stress grows us.
Bad stress harms and depletes us – even kills us.

Face your own demons and get rid of the iffing stress.




With love,
