Physical fatigue will go away with adequate rest and sleep. But emotional stress has no cur. Inappropriate attitudes and lack of understanding of some critical topics cause stress. So a cognitive change will make your life stress fee by not letting in stress.
When one has to interact with the world day after day, stress is to be expected. However, if one can strike a harmony with what one encounters, there is no emotional stress. When one likes what one has to do, then what one does cannot cause any stress. One may like something, but at the same time if it leaves one guilty or sad then one is subject to stress. For instance, a person may love to have alcohol, but in our society there is also a stigma attached to it. Hence, the person taken to alcohol is bound to feel guilty and one’s home has no happiness. It will cause stress.
One’s interaction with the world being inevitable, stress is a natural consequence. One has to relate to the world for, living is relating to the world. If one can see the difference between being alive and living, I can then say that one need not relate to the world in order to be alive. In sleep, one is alive but one does not relate to anything. So too in coma In dream, one relates to the objects that one dreams about, without realising they are but projections of oneself.
I relate and therefore there is living. When I am awake, I relate to the world. However, when I relate, either I can strike harmony with what I relate to or I can be the source of disharmony. If the other is a source of disharmony, I can keep myself safe if I have certain space within myself to retain that safety. So, to live a stress-free life, one has to learn that one has the capacity to live in harmony and also one needs to command enough space within to protect oneself from being an emotional victim to others’ disturbing actions and behaviour.
