Thus, you must understand that you can also control your mind. Stress and anxiety do not need to take over your mind. In fact, you can control how your mind responds to problems that arise in life.
Remember that you can decide not to be stressed. You do not have to be anxious. You can change your mind and let things slide away. Yes, there are many things in this world to worry about. However, worrying about them will not change many aspects of modern world. Constantly thinking about work, environment, economy, or politics will not change them. Instead, resolve to change things that you can change and do not worry about what you cannot control.
The thing to keep in mind is a sense of perspective. Yes, work is stressful, but do you need to worry about being attacked by a lion when you leave office? When you go shopping for groceries, do you need to think about whether there will be a pack of marauding barbarians in produce section? Hopefully, answer is, "No." Thus, you do not have same concerns as our forebears and you should keep that in mind. Life is pretty safe these days and so-called "Age of Stress" is entirely of our own creation. We are stressed about things that we decide to be stressed about. And things that we are stressed about really aren't that important in long-run scheme of things.
Stress and anxiety are, seemingly, enough to worry about on their own. So don't fall into trap of keeping them going. Keep life in perspective, keep yourself on an even keel and remember that you can control your own mind. If you can manage to do that, stress and anxiety to not need to take over your life.
