i try not to worry too much about anything. there’s a buddhist proverb i wrote here a couple of days ago “if it can be fixed, there’s no use in worrying. if it can’t be fixed, there’s no use in worrying” if you really think about this, things get a lot simpler. i’m a firm believer that things aren’t as complicated as they seem. so the way i deal with stress is to not stress. if you know what i mean. also, doing activities that calm you help, take your mind off things. for me, music and street fighter relieve me most of the time. try to identify the things that make you stressed/anxious, write them down, think about why they stress you out, write down possible solutions, go over them. if they can be fixed, work on it. if they can’t, put em down the drain.
n. the desire to care less about things—to loosen your grip on your life, to stop glancing behind you every few steps, afraid that someone will snatch it from you before you reach the end zone—rather to hold your life loosely and playfully, like a volleyball, keeping it in the air, with only quick fleeting interventions, bouncing freely in the hands of trusted friends, always in play.
