To begin finding stress relief it is suggested that you make the connection by beginning to develop a life of prayer, meditation and relaxation techniques as this can help focus our thoughts off circumstances and us. I highly suggest that you keep a journal to help you express your feelings and record your progress. And look for someone you can trust who can help you discover what your interests are and goals in life are and then help you achieve them. Remember another person can have insights that we have not yet discovered.
Begin to read inspirational stories or essays to help you become aware of ideas and following actions we can take. Talk to others whose spiritual lives you admire and certainly inquire of them how they found their way to a fulfilling spiritual life.

Have healthy and nurture your relationships as our spiritual being is can be traced to our relations with others. A few ways of doing this is by making relationships with friends and family a priority. Give more than you receive, see the good in people and in yourself, accept others as they are, without judgment and contribute to your community by volunteering. As we become aware of this, it's essential to build relationships with people who are important to you.
This can help us find our place in this life and make a positive difference. There are relief tools such as, exercising, watching what you eat and spending time with your close friends. Finding our source of identity in Jesus Christ can help us see a purpose and our plan or walk that God has for us. We can focus less on the unimportant things and cut down on our stress.
As Christians, we need to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit within us. He will help grow and mature us if we allow him to. We are body, mind and soul, keeping all areas focused to become all we can be is very important. Our concepts and understanding will certainly go through the process of change, it is how we accept and handle them that can make the difference, mentally, physically, and spiritually. Through this process I believe the meaning of why we are here and what we can do to further another person’s walk.
We will not be islands in this world but become members, brothers and sisters together in Christ and find peace within the fellowship of one another, especially in difficult times. We can realize we were never in control and are not responsible for everything that may happen in this life. As we walk together through the tough times we will grow more confident. And we find our strength in God we will cope better and deal with life in general better.
We may find ourselves less sickly and not prone to become addicted to any drug. Other areas to look at are what is important to you, the relationships, what we regard as non-negotiable our surroundings our hopes and dreams as well things that bring us fun and laughter, even the moments or decisions that we are proud of.
Staying connected to the Holy Spirit within us and to the lives of those around you can enhance your quality of life, both mentally and physically. Your personal concept of spirituality may change with your age and life experiences, but it always forms the basis of your well-being, helps you cope with stress's both large and small, and can affirm your purpose in life. Answering these questions will help us become more aware of the things and that is or was important to us. This can help continue the process of growth and maturity.
A recent survey from a website at www.Holistitic.com, stated that a majority of us feel stressed and that the pace of today’s world is wearing us out both physically and emotionally. In fact our general health is affected and they admit it does not always have to be this result for us.
We can take the steps to remain healthy and happy. It is what we focus on the good or the bad. Take for instance if you were wounded in an accident, you could begin to dwell on the why and how come rather than that perhaps it could have been a lot worse. I know that when I walked through three RPG’s in Vietnam it looked really bad but I am here today alive and in the process of maturity. We can choose to smile even through the tough times.
