Number two is stress.
It's not the stress that kills us, it's our reaction to it. Well, it turns out that we have two kinds of stress, right? We've got the negative stress that make is gut wrenching, that steals energy that brings pressure that brings heartache that brings that crushed version of ourselves to the forefront. We might put a smiley face but the reality is, that's not how we feel internally. And that disconnect between what we're feeling internally, and what we're showing the outside world causes another level of stress. So stress builds on stress builds upon stress, and you start looking like that guy in the picture right there.
So monitor your stress every single day, monitor the bad stuff, "What's my level of stress today, that negative stress? You'll get a number from zero to ten, if it's ten is awful, if it's a two or a one, it's not too bad, right? And as you monitor your stress, notice where it's going, if it's flatlining in a place you don't want, then you can ask yourself the question, "What do I need to do to lower the stress in my life?" If it's going up, then definitely 100% step on the frickin' brakes and ask for help and say, "Oh, my God, what's causing all this stress and why, oh, why is it getting worse? And if the stress is decreasing, let's ask yourself, hmm, why is that happening? What's happening in my life that's reducing stress and there could be an answer that you could take and put in other places of your life right? Just by noticing so number two is stress.
