Stress quotes by Sam Harris
#1. There is nothing novel about trying to become happy. And one can become happy, within certain limits, without any recourse to the practice of meditation. But conventional sources of happiness are unreliable, being dependent upon changing conditions. It is difficult to raise a happy family, to keep yourself and those you love healthy, to acquire wealth and find creative and fulfilling ways to enjoy it, to form deep friendships, to contribute to society in ways that are emotionally rewarding, to perfect a wide variety of artistic, athletic, and intellectual skills - and to keep the machinery of happiness running day after day. There is nothing wrong with being fulfilled in all these ways - except for the fact that, if you pay close attention, you will see that there is still something wrong with it. These forms of happiness aren't good enough. Our feelings of fulfillment do not last. And the stress of life continues. #Quote by Sam Harris
Stress quotes by Florence King
#2. The American way of stress is comparable to Freud's 'beloved symptom', his name for the cherished neurosis that a patient cultivates like the rarest of orchids and does not want to be cured of. Stress makes Americans feel busy, important, and in demand, and simultaneously deprived, ignored, and victimized. Stress makes them feel interesting and complex instead of boring and simple, and carries an assumption of sensitivity not unlike the Old World assumption that aristocrats were high-strung. In short, stress has become a status symbol. #Quote by Florence King
Stress quotes by Melissa Bean
#3. We're all proud of the communities that we've built and are a part of, but we shouldn't accept lost time and unnecessary stress when traveling in them. #Quote by Melissa Bean
Stress quotes by Faye J Crosby
#4. Anyone who wishes to combine domestic responsibilities and paid employment with the least stress and most enjoyment might start by pondering this paradox: the first step to better functioning is to stop blaming herself for not functioning well enough. #Quote by Faye J Crosby
Stress quotes by Natalie Maines
#5. I'm a way bigger worrier than I ever was before I had kids. And, you know, the stress and anxiety that can go along with motherhood, I have had to battle that. #Quote by Natalie Maines
Stress quotes by Rutger Bregman
#6. Whether it's the growth of the economy, audience shares, publications – slowly but surely, quality is being replaced by quantity. ... And driving it all is a force sometimes called "liberalism," an ideology that has been all but hollowed out. ... Freedom may be our highest ideal, but ours has become an empty freedom. Our fear of moralizing in any form has made morality a taboo in the public debate. The public arena should be "neutral," after all – yet never before has it been so paternalistic. On every street corner we're baited to booze, binge, borrow, buy, toil, stress, and swindle. Whatever we may tell ourselves about freedom of speech, our values are suspiciously close to those touted by precisely the companies that can pay for prime-time advertising. #Quote by Rutger Bregman
Stress quotes by Booker Little
#7. My own feelings about the direction in which jazz should go are that there should be much less stress on technical exhibitionism and much more on emotional content, on what might be termed humanity in music and the freedom to say all that you want. #Quote by Booker Little
Stress quotes by Hermann Bondi
#8. Our humanist attitude should therefore throughout be to stress what we all have in common with each other and relegate quarrelsome religion to the private domain where it can do [less] harm. #Quote by Hermann Bondi
Stress quotes by Roseanne Barr
#9. I survived my childhood by birthing many separate identities to stand in for one another in times of great stress and fear. #Quote by Roseanne Barr
Stress quotes by Amit Ray
#10. When we are aware about our body's sensations, we can release physical pain, tensions or stress through slow movements. #Quote by Amit Ray
Stress quotes by Joseph Conrad
#11. The artist descends within himself, and in that lonely region of stress and strife, if he be deserving and fortunate, he finds the terms of his appeal. His appeal is made to our less obvious capacities: to that part of our nature which, because of the warlike conditions of existence, is necessarily kept out of sight within the more resisting and hard qualities ... His appeal is less loud, more profound, less distinct, more stirring - and sooner forgotten. Yet its effect endures forever ... the artist appeals to that part of our being which is not dependent on wisdom: to that in us which is a gift and not an acquisition - and, therefore, more permanently enduring. #Quote by Joseph Conrad
Stress quotes by Brian L. Weiss
#12. As Christian mystic Pierre Teilhard de Chardin once said: "We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience." He was right. If we recognize the soul lesson, we can grow beyond suffering, and there is no stress in this state of understanding. #Quote by Brian L. Weiss
Stress quotes by Emily Nagoski
#13. Dread is anxiety on steroids. #Quote by Emily Nagoski
Stress quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#14. Any action that arises out of stress is of low quality, and it contributes to human suffering. You are making yourself and others suffer. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Stress quotes by Katie MacAlister
#15. I can assure you there's every reason to flirt whenever and wherever possible. It's scientifically proven to lower blood pressure, ease stress, and provide a great lucidity of mind. #Quote by Katie MacAlister
Stress quotes by Jodi Picoult
#16. A heart with so many stress fractures would never be anything but broken. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Stress quotes by Josh McDermitt
#17. For my mind, I try to reduce stress by finding quiet time and meditating. #Quote by Josh McDermitt
Stress quotes by Italo Calvino
#18. The close-up has no equivalent in a narrative fashioned of words. Literature is totally lacking in any working method to enable it to isolate a single vastly enlarged detail in which one face comes forward to underline a state of mind or stress the importance of a single detail in comparison with the rest. As a narrative device, the ability to vary the distance between the camera and the object may be a small thing indeed, but it makes for a notable difference between cinema and oral or written narrative, in which the distance between language and image is always the same. #Quote by Italo Calvino
Stress quotes by Seth Godin
#19. Debt creates stress, stress creates behaviors that don't lead to happiness. #Quote by Seth Godin
Stress quotes by Bernie Siegel
#20. It is astounding how much the immune system is strengthened by reducing daily mental stress levels with either visualization or meditation. The other great tonic for the immune system is love - loving ourselves as well as others. #Quote by Bernie Siegel
Stress quotes by Holly Mosier
#21. The most important reason for your "no" is that you need your downtime so you won't behave like a jerk because you're depleted. And you don't want to battle an appetite spiked by the stress of overcommitment. But that's your secret; others don't need that information. So just smile, say no, thank you, and keep moving. #Quote by Holly Mosier
Stress quotes by Tanya Masse
#22. Laughter IS the BEST medicine! It's FREE! You can overdose on it! It helps you embrace the insanities of life! It reduces stress, heals your body and relieves pain! It fights disease and cancer and strengthens the immune system! It eases your mind, it protects your heart and soothes your soul! #Quote by Tanya Masse
Stress quotes by Fennel Hudson
#23. You can escape completely, seeking an alternative life, or you can play the game and go absent without leave. How you do it is up to you. #Quote by Fennel Hudson
Stress quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#24. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Stress quotes by Haley Pullos
#25. I try to remind myself that nothing is permanent. #Quote by Haley Pullos
Stress quotes by Debasish Mridha
#26. Stress steals the beauty from life. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Stress quotes by Matthew Macfadyen
#27. I've worried more and more as the years have gone on. The more you're seen to be doing well, the more stress there is. You feel you ought to consider things more, and be more fussy - there's further to fall. All these little worries. #Quote by Matthew Macfadyen
Stress quotes by Marya Hornbacher
#28. Here's how you make absolutely sure that you'll keep getting crazier by the day:

- Ignore everything your psychiatrist tells you. Disregard all his warnings about the way you're living your life - in fact, do absolutely everything he tells you not to.

- Don't always take your pills. They're a hassle, and what if they make you dull? You don't need them. And if you're going to take the pills, take them with a glass of wine. It will make the mood swings even more exciting.

- Don't sleep; you've got to make sure your body clock is as fucked up as possible. The less you sleep, the more manic you'll get, until soon you'll go completely over the edge.

- Drink caffeine. Tons of it. Take your morning pills with coffee. It can't hurt.

- Work around the clock - it's important to put yourself under as much stress as possible.

- Eating normally would stabilize your blood sugar, so don't do that; it's better to keep your body in as unstable a state as you possibly can for maximum results.

- And, above all else, drink like a fish. #Quote by Marya Hornbacher
Stress quotes by Ian Fleming
#29. A scar had been beaten into his mind which would only heal by experience. #Quote by Ian Fleming
Stress quotes by Ransom Riggs
#30. I couldn't stop myself, so I thought about all the bad things and I fed it and fed it until I was crying so hard I had to gasp for breath between sobs. I thought about how my great-grandparents had starved to death. I thought about their wasted bodies being fed to incinerators because people they didn't know hated them. I thought about how the children who lived in this house had been burned up and blown apart because a pilot who didn't care pushed a button. I thought about how my grandfather's family had been taken from him, and how because of that my dad grew up feeling like he didn't have a dad, and now I had acute stress and nightmares and was sitting alone in a falling-down house and crying hot, stupid tears all over my shirt. All because of a seventy-year-old hurt that had somehow been passed down to me like some poisonous heirloom, and monsters I couldn't fight because they were all dead, beyond killing or punishing or any kind of reckoning. At least my grandfather had been able to join the army and go fight them. What could I do? #Quote by Ransom Riggs
Stress quotes by Jed Diamond
#31. Middle age is such a low point for well-being; it's at the bottom of a U-shaped curve that shows greater happiness among the younger and older people. #Quote by Jed Diamond
Stress quotes by Jase Robertson
#32. I applied a lot of what I knew about fishing to the dating world. I thought that women were a lot like fish in that they travel around in packs. They even go to the bathroom together--even if some of them don't need to go! The key to catching a lot of fish is to get the pack caught up in the frenzy of trying to be the one to capture the lure. When fish feed, they are motivated by one another. I have watched fish go crazy when my lure splashes across the top of the water. I have even caught two fish on one lure several times in large schools of feeding fish. However, I eventually learned the hard way that women are not like fish at all. For one, fish do not have the ability to slap your face because you're trying to land two at once. Second, fishing is relaxing and relieves stress, while dating a lot of girls at the same time is maddening. Luckily for me, I always had the woods and water to escape to when things got crazy, which seemed to happen a lot. Nothing tells a girl that you've moved on quite like a dead deer in the back of your truck or ducks on the grill. #Quote by Jase Robertson
Stress quotes by Mark Walden
#33. I am having nightmares about sitting my exams naked,' Franz said with an earnest expression as he sat down across from them. 'Most disturbing.'

'If it's any consolation I have nightmares about Franz sitting exams naked too,' Shelby whispered to Laura. 'One's where I'm sat at the desk right behind his.'

'Oh, thanks very much for that mental image. Especially when I'm trying to concentrate,' Laura said.

'Thing is,' Shelby whispered, 'in the dream he's really nervous because of the exam and so he's sweating a lot.'

'OK, I am really not listening to you any more,' Laura said, grimacing.

'It gets worse because then he . . .' Shelby leant over and whispered something in Laura's ear.

'Is Laura OK?' Wing asked Otto quietly on the other side of the cluster of desks. 'She appears to have suddenly gone quite pale.'

Otto looked over at Laura who was now repeatedly hitting Shelby with one of her notepads. Shelby meanwhile was laughing uncontrollably at the look of pure disgust on Laura's face.

'Shelby Trinity, there is something seriously wrong with you,' Laura said, shaking her head.

'You know, I am thinking Laura is struggling to be coping with the stress of the exams,' Franz said sadly as he watched Laura rubbing at her temples as if desperately trying to erase something from her brain. #Quote by Mark Walden
Stress quotes by Lisa Rinna
#34. I find that life just gets in the way and it gets so busy and there's so much chaos and stress that can come along with raising two teenage girls in Los Angeles and being married and working and, you know, everything that goes along with it. It's how do you find those calm moments, because everybody has this in their life. #Quote by Lisa Rinna
Stress quotes by Diana Peterfreund
#35. I mean being a knight," she said."Was it worth it?"
The drama, the heartache, the stress? The friendships, the conspiracies, the pranks, the bonding ... Was it worth it?Oh, yeah.But then her words sunk in. Was. Past tense. For I was no longer an active knight of Rose & Grave.I was a patriarch. #Quote by Diana Peterfreund
Stress quotes by Paul Gauguin
#36. Stressing output is the key to improving productivity, while looking to increase activity can result in just the opposite. #Quote by Paul Gauguin
Stress quotes by Ana Gasteyer
#37. It's funny, there are so many women who are former executives and have taken all that stress and anxiety and transferred it onto their kids. #Quote by Ana Gasteyer
Stress quotes by Stan Albeck
#38. Bill Walton is incredible. If you drop a toothpick on his foot, he'll have a stress fracture. #Quote by Stan Albeck
Stress quotes by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
#39. Naturalness is the basis of effectiveness. If one poses to be something else, one loses the charm of naturalness. The result is that one accumulates stress. #Quote by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
Stress quotes by Usain Bolt
#40. I've learned over the years that if you start thinking about the race, it stresses you out a little bit. I just try to relax and think about video games, what I'm gonna do after the race, what I'm gonna do just to chill. Stuff like that to relax a little before the race. #Quote by Usain Bolt
Stress quotes by Rhonda Byrne
#41. When you are feeling happy, and you keep feeling happy, then only happy people, circumstances and events can come into your life. If you feel stressed, then only more stress can come into your life through people, circumstances and events. #Quote by Rhonda Byrne
Stress quotes by Grant Hill
#42. People don't realize the amount of stress you put on your body both physically and mentally from just the wear and tear of a season. #Quote by Grant Hill
Stress quotes by John N. Demos
#43. In 1989, Eugene Peniston and Paul Kulkosky used a specific neurofeedback protocol for the treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). They facilitated twilight states of learning by rewarding both alpha and theta. Their protocol has come to be called deep-states training (Robbins, 2000a). Guided visualizations and skin temperature (ST) training were also part of the protocol design. The first landmark study included a small population of Vietnam veterans. Two years later Peniston and Kulkosky studied the effect of neurofeedback training with veterans who had dual diagnoses of alcoholism and PTSD. Both studies had positive outcomes (Peniston & Kulkosky, 1999). They #Quote by John N. Demos
Stress quotes by Jessica Alba
#44. For me, makeup is about being your best self. If I wake up in a foul mood and have to deal with temper tantrums and an exploding diaper
I know taking 10 minutes to get my game face on will reset my stress levels. It's a chance to check in and remind myself
you got this. #Quote by Jessica Alba
Stress quotes by Gina M. Biegel
#45. What if a day could be just a day...not good or bad, but just a day filled with all types of moments? #Quote by Gina M. Biegel
Stress quotes by Frederick Lenz
#46. If you are doing that which is within you, what that part of you that is beyond body would like you to do, then you would not experience stress because you would be very fulfilled. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Stress quotes by Victoria Schwab
#47. It was the only commonality I could find in all the cases of EOs that are even close to well-documented. Anyway, bodies react in strange ways under stress. Adrenaline and all that, as you know. I figured that trauma could cause the body to chemically alter." He began to speak faster. "But the problem is, trauma is such a vague word, right? It's a whole blanket, really, and I needed to isolate a thread. Millions of people are traumatized daily. Emotionally, physically, what-have-you. If even a fraction of them became ExtraOrdinary, they would compose a measurable percentage of the human population. And if that were the case EOs would be more than a thing in quotation marks, more than a hypothesis; they'd be an actuality. I knew there had to be something more specific. #Quote by Victoria Schwab
Stress quotes by George Eliot
#48. The bow always strung ... will not do. #Quote by George Eliot
Stress quotes by James M. Buchanan
#49. Political economists stress the technical economic principles that one must understand in order to assess alternative arrangements for promoting peaceful cooperation and productive specialization among free men. Yet political economists go further and frankly try to bring out into the open the philosophical issues that necessarily underlie all discusions of the appropriate functions of government and all proposed economic policy measures. They examine philosophical values for consistency among themselves and with the ideal of human freedom. #Quote by James M. Buchanan
Stress quotes by Tony Robbins
#50. We're all going to face extreme stress in our lives, there's no one who is going to escape that. That's the one thing, rich or poor, I don't care who you are, you're going to lose. #Quote by Tony Robbins
Stress quotes by William Thorsell
#51. You become visibly stressed because you are working hard to pay for a standard of living so robust that it overwhelms your capacity to consume it. #Quote by William Thorsell
Stress quotes by Andrew Weil
#52. I tried to change the conventional paradigm, for example, by insisting on the reality of mind-body interaction, by stressing the importance of natural therapies, by focusing attention on lifestyle issues, by looking at worthwhile aspects of alternative medicine. Many people have been threatened by that. Doctors especially tend to think that they know everything about the human body, and don't realize that medical education has really omitted many very important subjects. #Quote by Andrew Weil
Stress quotes by Cassidy Calloway
#53. And don't stress about the trip. We'll find some alone time in London," he continued, bending his head closer to mine. "Nothing keeps 007 from romancing a beautiful woman. #Quote by Cassidy Calloway
Stress quotes by Michael Gurian
#54. Teacher cannot solve or heal all student stress. The teacher can be vigilant in trying to guide the child toward solutions;but the teacher's job in relation to this stress is ultimately to help the child learn to manage his or her own stress wisely. In accomplishing this, the teacher mentors higher academic learning by removing distracting stress, and teaches valuable life-survival skills. #Quote by Michael Gurian
Stress quotes by Robert Morrison MacIver
#55. The healthy being craves an occasional wildness, a jolt from normality, a sharpening of the edge of appetite, his own little festival of Saturnalia, a brief excursion from his way of life. #Quote by Robert Morrison MacIver
Stress quotes by EverSkeptic
#56. Whenever I see an idiot living happily and in comfort, I feel so cheated. All that studying, hard work, competing, learning, taking decisions, job, relationships, stress.... all for nothing but more stress. What a waste #Quote by EverSkeptic
Stress quotes by Peter Farrelly
#57. Our feeling is that the most important thing on a set is that actors have enough confidence to try different things. If there's stress or tension, they won't go out on a limb because they won't want to embarrass themselves if they don't feel completely comfortable. #Quote by Peter Farrelly
Stress quotes by Emily Maroutian
#58. You're not behind in life. There's no schedule or timetable that we all must follow. It's all made up. Wherever you are right now is exactly where you need to be. Seven billion people can't do everything in exactly the same scheduled order. We are all different with a variety of needs and goals. Some get married early, some get married late, while others don't get married at all. What is early? What is late? Compared with whom? Compared with what? Some want children, others don't. Some want a career; others enjoy taking care of a house and children. Your life is not on anyone else's schedule. Don't beat yourself up for where you are right now. It's YOUR timeline, not anyone else's, and nothing is off schedule. #Quote by Emily Maroutian
Stress quotes by Patty Hearst
#59. I mean, they call it Stockholm Syndrome and post traumatic stress disorder. And, you know, I had no free will. I had virtually no free will until I was separated from them for about two weeks. #Quote by Patty Hearst

Stress quotes by Jason Mraz
#62. Stress is the result of not listening to your heart. If you ignore it for too long, and surrender your power to someone else, your chest will explode with panic. I take plenty of time for me. #Quote by Jason Mraz
Stress quotes by Brie Larson
#63. Everything is changing all the time, and I'm not going to stress out and spend my entire time chasing something that ultimately doesn't exist. #Quote by Brie Larson
Stress quotes by Nora McInerny Purmort
#64. Yes, it stressed me out to be asked about my plans for my one (ONE) wild and precious life, but I will still like this phrase every time someone has turned it into art on Pinterest or Instagram. I will try not to let it stress me out. I will try to be better. I will try to bring more love to the world. #Quote by Nora McInerny Purmort
Stress quotes by Sandy Oshiro Rosen
#65. Community is about sharing my life; about allowing the chaos of another's circumstances to infringe on mine; about permitting myself to be known without constraint; about resigning myself to needing others. #Quote by Sandy Oshiro Rosen
Stress quotes by Alexander Lowen
#66. The person senses what it feels like to be free from inhibitions. At the same time he feels connected and integrated – with his body and, through his body, with his environment. He has a sense of well-being and inner peace. He gains the knowledge that the life of the body resides in its involuntary aspect. […] Unfortunately these beautiful feelings do not always hold up under the stress of daily living in our modern culture. The pace, the pressure and the philosophy of our times are antithetical to life. #Quote by Alexander Lowen
Stress quotes by Jacinta Mpalyenkana
#67. When we are restless, it only implies that we are everywhere else but in the moment. #Quote by Jacinta Mpalyenkana
Stress quotes by Marshall McLuhan
#68. Literacy, the visual technology, dissolved the tribal magic by means of its stress on fragmentation and specialization and created the individual. #Quote by Marshall McLuhan
Stress quotes by Angelica Hopes
#69. Security means the state of being free from danger or threat.

Danger means the possibility of suffering harm or injury. The possibility of something unwelcome or unpleasant happening.

There are times I have to stress as I express the correct, precise, real and honest definitions; so that the deceptive, politically motivated folks who destructively branded me as "threat to danger" would realise their double denial duplicity, dishonesty and hypocrisy.

Have you at least questioned the personal motives and faulty malicious and intentional misjudgment or at least be honestly curious to discern the motive of a cunning person who warns you against another as a danger, a threat or a risk to life or security?

Did the political harridan mean political threat to her political coalition or a danger to reveal the harridan's creative deception matched with her political ambitious power links? ~ Angelica Hopes, K.H. Trilogy #Quote by Angelica Hopes
Stress quotes by Karina Halle
#70. All it does is add to my stress, knowing that all these people look to me as their king. No one should look to me for anything.
And yet, that's what I want, what I need, from her.
To look at me for everything. #Quote by Karina Halle
Stress quotes by Andrew J. Bernstein
#71. The number of stressors has multiplied exponentially: traffic, money, success, work/life balance, the economy, the environment, parenting, family conflict, relationships, disease. As the nature of human life has become far more complicated, our ancient stress response hasn't been able to keep up. #Quote by Andrew J. Bernstein
Stress quotes by Elena Mukhina
#72. The coaches today should realize that they are, after all, working with children who sometimes have to stand up to physical and moral stresses which not even all grown-ups could bear. #Quote by Elena Mukhina
Stress quotes by Harlan Coben
#73. Thomas had gotten his learner's permit a week ago - the parental equivalent of a stress test without using an actual EKG machine. #Quote by Harlan Coben
Stress quotes by Erin Andrews
#74. I try to stay in shape just to handle things like the stress of a job or everyday life. #Quote by Erin Andrews
Stress quotes by Jessica Park
#75. You need songs that make you feel. Some make you string, some make you weak. Some build determination, some tear you apart. But you need all of those ... Run through the pain. #Quote by Jessica Park
Stress quotes by Lee Thompson Young
#76. Photography is a hobby born out of my time in undergrad at USC. It is more of a pleasurable hobby, a stress reliever. I don't consider it a professional endeavor like acting or directing. #Quote by Lee Thompson Young
Stress quotes by Richard D. Murphy
#77. Change your stress, before it changes you! Restore your Freedom to Choose! #Quote by Richard D. Murphy
Stress quotes by Elaine N. Aron
#78. In short, you do not have to take the job that will create excessive stress and overarousal. Someone else will take it and flourish in it. You do not have to work long hours. Indeed, it may be your duty to work shorter ones. It may not be best to advertise it, but keeping yourself healthy and in your right range of arousal is the first condition for helping others. #Quote by Elaine N. Aron
Stress quotes by Konosuke Matsushita
#79. In order to do a good job a person must like what he or she is doing ... 'Love thy work', and you will be successful ... If you do things just because you have to, then you will never enjoy work. Nor will you do a good job if you do it simply out of a sense of duty. stress is often a by-product of such passive or negative attitudes toward work. Paradoxically as it may sound, love of work can be the best medicine for workaholism. #Quote by Konosuke Matsushita
Stress quotes by Laura Kreitzer
#80. It took me several minutes to persuade myself to watch the news. During which time I gave myself a stern talking to. That turned into me considering a local pub that would be the perfect place to drown my sorrows in a barrel of tequila, though after much introspection, I scratched the idea just to avoid needless drunken embarrassment. Then, admittedly, I contemplated pouncing Andrew for another steamy romp session. Despite its proven potency to assuage stress and tension, I decided now was not the time to indulge in explosive sexcapades. #Quote by Laura Kreitzer
Stress quotes by Bruce H. Lipton
#81. Most illness is just stress from not living in harmony #Quote by Bruce H. Lipton
Stress quotes by Christine A. Courtois
#82. The act of consciously and purposefully paying attention to symptoms and their antecedents and consequences makes the symptoms more an objective target for thoughtful observation than an intolerable source of subjective anxiety, dysphoria, and frustration. In ACT, the act of accepting the symptoms as an expectable feature of a disorder or illness, has been shown to be associated with relief rather than increased distress (Hayes et al., 2006). From a traumatic stress perspective, any symptom can be reframed as an understandable, albeit unpleasant and difficult to cope with, reaction or survival skill (Ford, 2009b, 2009c). In this way, monitoring symptoms and their environmental or experiential/body state "triggers" can enhance client's willingness and ability to reflectively observe them without feeling overwhelmed, terrified, or powerless. This is not only beneficial for personal and life stabilization but is also essential to the successful processing of traumatic events and reactions that occur in the next phase of therapy (Ford & Russo, 2006). #Quote by Christine A. Courtois
Stress quotes by Paul F. Dell
#83. When treating their first few DID cases, therapists typically focus too much attention on the alters. This focus tends to distract from what is fundamental–the patients' pervasive dissociative/posttraumatic distress and maladaptation. Has something similar occurred in psychiatry's view of DID? Have the compelling phenomena of alters distracted us from the matrix of dissociative and posttraumatic symptoms in which alters are embedded?
- Dell, P. F. (2001). Why the Diagnostic Criteria for Dissociative Identity Disorder Should Be Changed, Journal of Trauma and Dissociation, 2 (1). #Quote by Paul F. Dell
Stress quotes by Chris Prentiss
#84. When people who believe themselves to be addicts or alcoholics come under great stress or trauma, they mentally give themselves permission to drink or use drugs as a remedy. #Quote by Chris Prentiss
Stress quotes by Andrew J. Bernstein
#85. The less you think counterfactually, the less you experience stress. Stress, in this light, isn't a bad thing. It's simply a warning system telling you that your mind has lost touch with what's real. #Quote by Andrew J. Bernstein
Stress quotes by Gabor Mate
#86. Like stress, emotion is a concept we often invoke without a precise sense of its meaning. And, like stress, emotions have several components. The psychologist Ross Buck distinguishes between three levels of emotional responses, which he calls Emotion I, Emotion II and Emotion III, classified according to the degree we are conscious of them. Emotion III is the subjective experience, from within oneself. It is how we feel. In the experience of Emotion III there is conscious awareness of an emotional state, such as anger or joy or fear, and its accompanying bodily sensations. Emotion II comprises our emotional displays as seen by others, with or without our awareness. It is signalled through body language - "non-verbal signals, mannerisms, tones of voices, gestures, facial expressions, brief touches, and even the timing of events and pauses between words. [They] may have physiologic consequences - often outside the awareness of the participants."

It is quite common for a person to be oblivious to the emotions he is communicating, even though they are clearly read by those around him. Our expressions of Emotion II are what most affect other people, regardless of our intentions. A child's displays of Emotion II are also what parents are least able to tolerate if the feelings being manifested trigger too much anxiety in them. As Dr. Buck points out, a child whose parents punish or inhibit this acting-out of emotion will be conditioned to respond to similar emotions #Quote by Gabor Mate
Stress quotes by Aphrodite Matsakis
#87. Some of the experiences endured by human beings on this earth are virtually unbelievable. #Quote by Aphrodite Matsakis
Stress quotes by David Breashears
#88. The stresses of high-altitude climbing reveal your true character; they unmask who you really are. You no longer have all the social graces to hide behind, to play roles. You are the essence of what you are. #Quote by David Breashears
Stress quotes by Armin Navabi
#89. A study of heart patients in 6 separate hospitals sought to determine whether prayers from strangers would have any effect on a person's recovery (1). After carefully following the recovery of 1,800 heart surgery patients for 30 days after the surgery, researchers found absolutely no link between prayer and recovery. However, there was a significant difference between those who were aware of the fact that they were being prayed for and those who did not know. Those who knew ended up suffering more complications, possibly due to the additional stress it caused. Being told that a high number of people are praying for your recovery might increase how severe you would perceive your illness to be and thus negatively affect your recovery. To date, there have been no reputable scientific studies showing any clear link between prayer and healing. #Quote by Armin Navabi
Stress quotes by H.P. Lovecraft
#90. Horror and the unknown or the strange are always closely connected so that it is hard to create a convincing picture of shattered natural law or cosmic alienage or 'outsideness' without laying stress on the emotion of fear. #Quote by H.P. Lovecraft
Stress quotes by Stephen Chow
#91. Why do I use the same actors in different movies? One of the things I really stress in casting is I need to find someone who is suitable for the role in the movie. That's always the main reason. #Quote by Stephen Chow
Stress quotes by Robert M. Sapolsky
#92. Digestion is quickly shut down during stress ... The parasympathetic nervous system, perfect for all that calm, vegetative physiology, normally mediates the actions of digestion. Along comes stress: turn off parasympathetic, turn on the sympathetic, and forget about digestion. #Quote by Robert M. Sapolsky
Stress quotes by John L. Casti
#93. The World is currently facing a confluence of mounting shortages in three commodities essential to the continuance of human life on this planet: water, energy, and food. Those three elements combine into something much greater than the sum of its parts, a looming global disaster by 2030. By 2030 the demand for water will increase by 30 percent, while demands for both energy and food will shoot up 50 percent. All this will be driven by a global population increase to about 8 billion people, placing tremendous stress on our highly industrialized global food system. #Quote by John L. Casti
Stress quotes by Jon Kabat-Zinn
#94. Studies by Dr. Herbert Benson of the Harvard Medical School in the early 1970s on people practicing a form of meditation known as Transcendental Meditation, or TM, demonstrated that meditation can produce a pattern of significant physiological changes, which he termed the relaxation response. These include a lowering of blood pressure, reduced oxygen consumption, and an overall decrease in arousal. Dr. Benson proposed that the relaxation response was the physiological opposite of hyperarousal, the state we experience when we are stressed or threatened. He hypothesized that if the relaxation response was elicited regularly, it could have a positive influence on health and protect us from some of the more damaging effects of stress. #Quote by Jon Kabat-Zinn
Stress quotes by Stephen Richards
#95. If evil lingers around you, it will rub off on you, it will cause stress, anxiety and a lot of mental anguish! 'Eyes' - you can see evil in the eye of the beholder! Body! Talk! Stance! Walk! Posture! Evil oozes out! #Quote by Stephen Richards
Stress quotes by John J. Ratey
#96. In the context of stress, the great paradox of the modern age may be that there is not more hardship, just more news - and too much of it. The 24/7 streaming torrent of tragedy and demands flashing at us from an array of digital displays keeps the amygdala flying. #Quote by John J. Ratey

Stress quotes by Philip Zaleski
#99. The authors disclose that in less than a century the word "tension" grew from signifying a literal electric charge to a metaphor for emotional stress between two people. Writes Owen Barfield, "The scientists who discovered the forces of electricity actually made it possible for the human beings who came after them to have a slightly different idea, a slightly fuller consciousness of their relationship with one another. #Quote by Philip Zaleski
Stress quotes by Donald Shaw
#100. So you went to the doctor. What did he say? - He said I have to start killing people like my boss and my wife. - WHAT? - Well, not in those exact words. He said I need to reduce the stress in my life. But that's exactly the same thing. #Quote by Donald Shaw
Stress quotes by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Stress quotes by Daniel Gottlieb
#105. Last month, on a very windy day, I was returning from a lecture I had given to a group in Fort Washington. I was beginning to feel unwell. I was feeling increasing spasms in my legs and back and became anxious as I anticipated a difficult ride back to my office. Making matters worse, I knew I had to travel two of the most treacherous high-speed roads near Philadelphia – the four-lane Schuylkill Expressway and the six-lane Blue Route.

You've been in my van, so you know how it's been outfitted with everything I need to drive. But you probably don't realize that I often drive more slowly than other people. That's because I have difficulty with body control. I'm especially careful on windy days when the van can be buffeted by sudden gusts. And if I'm having problems with spasms or high blood pressure, I stay way over in the right hand lane and drive well below the speed limit.

When I'm driving slowly, people behind me tend to get impatient. They speed up to my car, blow their horns, drive by, stare at me angrily, and show me how long their fingers can get. (I don't understand why some people are so proud of the length of their fingers, but there are many things I don't understand.) Those angry drivers add stress to what already is a stressful experience of driving.

On this particular day, I was driving by myself. At first, I drove slowly along back roads. Whenever someone approached, I pulled over and let them pass. But as I neared the Blue Route, #Quote by Daniel Gottlieb
Stress quotes by Dianna Agron
#106. Keep going on hikes, keep having your friends in your life, keep that downtime sacred as well because as hard as you work in any job, it's really nice to have the relaxing de-stressors. Stress is the worst thing. That's the ultimate demise of any good thing. #Quote by Dianna Agron

Stress quotes by K. Bromberg
#110. Hey… this bed is awfully lonely without you in it." His sleepy morning rasp pulls at me and his words seduce me when I have no business being seduced.
"Believe me, I'd much rather be there with you - "
"Then get here as quick as you can, baby, because time's wasting. I have a long list of things to do today," he says, humor edging the suggestive tone of his voice. And I love this about him - about us - that just his voice can help ease the stress of my morning.
"What is it you have to do today?"
"You on the couch, you on the counter, you against the wall, you just about any place imaginable… #Quote by K. Bromberg
Stress quotes by Kytka Hilmar-Jezek
#111. The final option to have your book completed is to hire a ghost writer. The challenge with this option is that it is important to note that your voice IS an integral part of your branding. When you hire someone else, what your readers will ultimately get is their voice. When they see you later at your website or on your social media, your voice will not be the same. This will trigger a feeling of inconsistency when relationships need to be built upon trust and authenticity. Your audience will eventually come to think you are not the "real deal" and will find another to replace you. Finally, your book is a springboard and launching pad to greater things such as speaking, interviews, a product line, etc. Will your ghost writer be available for all of that as well? How will you be able to "ghost write" your way through an interview? Hence the reason I stress speaking in your own voice. You may think you are not perfect, but your authenticity will speak in volumes to your followers and they will be customers for life if they see your true being. #Quote by Kytka Hilmar-Jezek
Stress quotes by Tupac Shakur
#112. With all this extra stressin
The question I wonder is after death, after my last breath
When will I finaly get to rest? Through this supression
they punish the people that's askin questions
And those that possess, steal from the ones without possesions
The message I stress: to make it stop study your lessons
Don't settle for less - even the genius asks-es questions
Be grateful for blessings
Don't ever change, keep your essence
The power is in the people and politics we address. #Quote by Tupac Shakur
Stress quotes by Nick Miller
#113. Some people are good at being in love. Some people are good at love. Two very different things, I think. Being in love is the romantic part - sex all the time, midday naps in the sheets, the jokes, the laughs, the fun, long conversations with no pauses, overwhelming separation anxiety ... Just the best sides of both people, you know? But love begins when the excitement of being in love starts to fade: the stress of life sets in, the butterflies disappear, the sex becomes a chore, the tears, the sadness, the arguments, the cattiness ... The worst parts of both people. But if you still want that person by your side through all of those things ... that's when you know - that's when you know you're good at love. #Quote by Nick Miller
Stress quotes by Bayard Rustin
#114. I am not going to stress the usual argument that the police habitually mistreat Negroes. Every Negro knows this. There is scarcely any black man, woman, or child in the land who at some point or other has not been mistreated by a policeman. (A young man in Watts said, "The riots will continue because I, as a Negro, am immediately considered to be a criminal by the police and, if I have a pretty woman with me, she is a tramp even if she is my wife or mother.") #Quote by Bayard Rustin
Stress quotes by Christian Smith
#115. Generosity involved in proactively forgiving other people. This form of generosity, and the positive feelings it evokes in generous forgivers, have been shown by studies to reduce stress, tension, and sadness, and to lead to lower heart rates, lower skin conduction levels, and lower blood pressure. By contrast, those who ungenerously hold grudges are more angry, feel less in control of their lives, and, partly as a result, exhibit symptoms of unhealthy physical conditions. #Quote by Christian Smith
Stress quotes by Erin Blakemore
#116. I am here to posit that it's exactly in these moments of struggle and stress that we need books the most. There's something in the pause to read that's soothing in and of itself. A moment with a book is basic self-care, the kind of skill you pass along to your children as you would a security blanket or a churchgoing habit. #Quote by Erin Blakemore
Stress quotes by Angelica Hopes
#117. Would you like the rhythm of your heart to be calm?
Would you like the music of your soul towards harmony and fulfillment?
Deal with any conflict constructively to reduce stress, tension and other unwanted collateral effects. Sharing you strategies on how to deal with a conflict:
- take care of yourself and know well yourself
- clarify what personal needs threatened by the conflict
- identify a safe place and appropriate time for negotiation
- seek first to understand than be understood, listening skills is very important. #Quote by Angelica Hopes
Stress quotes by Eckhart Tolle

Stress quotes by Chris Cunningham
#119. It's hard enough to make a film without everyone saying, "Hang on, is this version as good as the one Kubrick would have made?" In peoples' minds they'll always think if Kubrick had done it it would be so much better. You don't need that extra stress. #Quote by Chris Cunningham

Stress quotes by Lisa Tawn Bergren
#121. I'd been brief with her, not wanting her to stress over me and Lia. I mean, she knew I'd narrowly escaped death in freeing Lia from Castel o Paratore, but she didn't know all of the details. That, like, I'd almost been killed a dozen times. You just didn't tell your mom that kind of thing - not if you were trying to keep her from rushing you off to some safe tower. #Quote by Lisa Tawn Bergren
Stress quotes by Paul Chappell
#122. Ultimately, if the Lord doesn't build the house (or the Sunday school class, or the church, or the family, or the business, or the relationship, or ), we are laboring in vain anyway (Psalm 127:1). We release the burden of stress when we release the responsibilities for the outcome to the Lord. #Quote by Paul Chappell
Stress quotes by Christopher Moore
#123. So, like, the master needed a hand, if you know what I mean, so I was like, "Oh chill, it's a stress thing, everyone does it. I'm flicking the bean under the table right now just to dial the tension back a little. Yes. Yes. Yes! Oh-zombie-jeebus-fuck-me-Simba-lion-king-hakuna-matata! Yes!"

Stress quotes by Irwin Redlener
#126. Many low-income children face chronic stress from nutritional deprivation or persistent violence at home or in the community.

Stress quotes by J. Lynn
#128. One of the things you never really see in a romance book is a woman who has self-esteem issues. I mean, I'm sure they're out there, but they're few and far between. Like they can have eating disorders, post-traumatic stress from sexual assault or mental abuse. They can be sold into sex trafficking and they can carry epic amounts of grief. We have female characters who have suffered every loss imaginable and ones who are scarred physically and mentality, but where in the hell are the average women? Ones who look in the mirror and cringe a little? Like, why are all those others acceptable to women, but reading or knowing another woman who has a low self-esteem is, like, worse than all that drama llama? #Quote by J. Lynn

Stress quotes by J. Thomas
#130. According to His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, when you're happy everything in life is bearable and grief and stress are just passing emotions. Happiness is not something that you feel after something good happens. It is a state of living that is present whether good things are happening or not, whether you're suffering or not. #Quote by J. Thomas

Stress quotes by C. G. Jung
#132. The decisive question for man is: Is he related to something infinite or not? That is the telling question of his life. Only if we know that the thing which truly matters is the infinite can we avoid fixing our interests upon futilities, and upon all kinds of goals which are not of real importance. Thus we demand that the world grant us recognition for qualities which we regard as personal possessions: our talent or our beauty. The more a man lays stress on false possessions, and the less sensitivity he has for what is essential, the less satisfying is his life. He feels limited because he has limited aims, and the result is envy and jealousy. If we understand and feel that here in this life we already have a link with the infinite, desires and attitudes change. #Quote by C. G. Jung

Stress quotes by Lucas Carlson
#135. Your past can either cripple you or empower you. You choose. You can let your feelings of inadequacy, guilt, and shame keep you working jobs that suck your soul. Or you can go out and, with a little luck and guidance, write a new story of your life. It can be post-traumatic stress or it can be post-traumatic growth that defines you. You know as well as I do that in reality you don't have a choice.

At an individual level just as much as a corporate level, this notion of if you're not really passionate about the work you're doing in a world of mounting pressure, you're going to experience more and more stress.

Stress quotes by Deborah Brodie
#149. The paths that lead to the crossroads of life; otherwise known as "transition", seem the longest, and darkest. This is a result of the tension present between struggle and grace. The more you resist, the more anxiety and stress you will encounter. Whereas, when you let go of the expectation of where you should be, or want to be, and accept the current situation, event, or circumstance, to merely exist, you will experience God's sufficient Grace. #Quote by Deborah Brodie
Stress quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#150. When I am fully immersed in my work of nourishing humanity, it fills my head with all kinds of feel-good chemicals, such as endorphins, serotonin and dopamine. Problems occur during the brief intervals between the finishing of one work and the beginning of another. During these intervals, my biology starts to get filled with stress hormones cortisol and adrenalin, that worsens my OCD. That is why, I can't sit still even a day after I finish writing a book. Because if I do, my OCD begins to suffocate me inside my head. Hence, as soon as I deliver a work, I have to start working on my next scientific literature. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Stress quotes by Christopher Dines

The human brain can be shaped and trained to be more resilient, calm, compassionate and alert - we can condition ourselves to be successful. Through mindfulness meditation, we can literally re-wire our brains through new experiences, which modify our neural network and our neural chemistry. Mindfulness also enhances gamma synchrony and improves the function of the human brain. #Quote by Christopher Dines

Stress quotes by Jed Diamond
#153. The physical body itself is continually vibrating and resonating with other energies in the environment. While Western medicine has developed few interventions that are based in the recognition that energy is at the foundation of, or at least intimately intertwined with, physical matter, scientists from many other disciplines are working within this perspective. They are, for example, recognizing the potential explanatory power of fields that are 'totally unlike any of those presently known' in the ways they hold and transmit information, display quantum properties such as nonlocal influence, and interact with consciousness. #Quote by Jed Diamond

Stress quotes by Demi Lovato

Stress quotes by Christopher Dines
#156. Conscious breathing anchors us into the nowness of life and gives us a fresh outlook, no different from how a baby observes reality without mental commentary. The baby enjoys watching the world and human activity without any limiting mental concepts spoiling his or her perception. Naturally, we all have to evolve from the helpless state of babyhood, but to be able to tap into that wonderful ability and truly BE in the moment is immensely liberating. #Quote by Christopher Dines
Stress quotes by Wayne W. Dyer
#157. Feelings of despair, anger, hatred, bitterness, stress, and depression stem from the ego's anxiety and insistence on living up to an external standard. The result is the anguish of not measuring up or fitting in properly. The ego will seldom allow you to rest, and demands more and more because it's terrified that you'll be called a failure. When you move beyond ego and make your higher self the dominant force in your life, you'll begin to feel that contentment and inner glow of peace and success that characterizes the extra mile. 2. #Quote by Wayne W. Dyer
Stress quotes by Kristi Cook
#158. Ryder! What's taking you so long?"
"I'm on my way!" he yells back.
It feels like forever before he pushes open the door and ducks inside. Then I see why it took him so long. He's somehow got the three cats tucked under one arm and the cake plate clutched in the other hand. No spare for a flashlight or lantern--so he accomplished this all in the dark.
"Here," he says, handing off the cake to me before releasing Kirk, Spock, and Sulu into the crate and latching the door.
"Seriously, Ryder? You brought the cake?"
He shrugs. "I was hungry."
Hmm, I guess all that kissing worked up his appetite. For cake. I'm not sure if I should be offended or not. On the plus side, he doesn't look like he's about to puke. So we're making progress as far as his fear of storms goes. I guess that's something.
"Did you happen to bring a fork?" I ask, setting the plate on the makeshift tabletop.
He produces two from his pocket, holding them up triumphantly. So we eat cake while the sirens blare. Actually, it doesn't sound that bad out there. Still, the fact that we're so calm--that Ryder's so calm--should tell you how routine this is getting. As long as we don't hear that awful freight-train sound, we're good.
"What happened to the cake?" he asks between bites. "It looks like someone mutilated it while I was gone."
"Sorry," I mutter. "Guess I did some stress bingeing. You realize you're not wearing a shirt, right?"
He glances down and shrugs, his #Quote by Kristi Cook

Stress quotes by Katie Kacvinsky
#164. I think falling in love should come with a warning label: CAUTION - side effects may include breaking up, accompanied by heartache, severe mood swings, withdrawal from people and life itself, wasted hours obsessing over bitter reflections, a need to destroy something (preferably something expensive that shatters), uncontrollable tear ducts, stress, a loss of appetite (Cheetos and Dr. Pepper exempt), a bleak and narrow outlook on the future, and an overall hatred of everyone and everything (especially all the happy couples you see strolling hand-in-hand, placed on your path only to exacerbate your isolation and misery). All above reactions will be intensified with the consumption of one or more alcoholic beverages. #Quote by Katie Kacvinsky
Stress quotes by Sarah Hackley
#165. I had built such a wall between my experiences and how I felt about those experiences that I was incapable of reliving both simultaneously. I could talk about my traumas, even walk through them, but I couldn't feel them. When I tried to bring it all together, when I tried to remember how I had felt, I disappeared in my own head. My to-do list took on grave importance. The book I read the night before filled my thoughts. Yesterday's article suddenly called out to be rewritten. I couldn't get inside myself. #Quote by Sarah Hackley
Stress quotes by Heather Moehn
#166. Generalized Social Anxiety

In contrast to people with specific social anxieties, you may be afraid in a wide variety of situations. You might feel that people are judging everything you do and you might set unreasonable standards of perfection for yourself. This condition is called generalized (or discrete) social anxiety. Generalized social anxiety accounts for 80 percent of all cases of social anxiety.
Often, people with generalized social anxiety get caught in a vicious cycle. Because they are overly anxious in many situations, they act in clumsy and awkward ways, which in turn makes them feel even more discouraged and anxious. This cycle often results in depression and chronic stress.
Generalized social anxiety can affect almost every aspect of your life. This has been the case for Toni, a college senior.

In high school, I hardly had any friends. I didn't participate in any extracurricular activities and managed to get by with average grades. Because I attend a large state university, I am even more invisible. So far, I have avoided any class that has any interaction with my peers, such as discussion groups or labs.
As graduation approaches, I need to decide what type of career I want. The thought of job interviews terrifies me. I am considering grad school but would need recommendations to apply. I haven't even spoken to most of my professors, and the ones who know me probably can't say anything good about me.
As a result, I'm r #Quote by Heather Moehn
Stress quotes by Parker J. Palmer
#167. Under stress, an unexercised heart will explode in frustration or fury. If the situation is especially tense, that exploding heart may be hurled like a fragment grenade toward the source of its pain. But a heart that has been consistently exercised through conscious engagement with suffering is more likely to break open instead of apart. Such a heart has learned how to flex to hold tension in a way that expands its capacity for both suffering and joy. #Quote by Parker J. Palmer

Stress quotes by Colleen Hoover
#169. The same two things could happen to two people, but that doesn't mean they would experience the exact same stress over it. We all have different levels of stress that we're accustomed to. You probably felt the same amount of stress over your family situation as I sometimes do about mine, even though they're completely on different levels. But that doesn't make you weaker. It doesn't make you an asshole. We're just two different people with two different experiences. #Quote by Colleen Hoover
Stress quotes by Shawn Achor
#170. We often feel the most stress, or the most emotionally hijacked, when we stare into the void of our jam-packed to-do list, in-box, or desk top. One look at the towering pile of papers looming on our desk, or the 300 unread e-mails, and our feelings of control fly right out the window. #Quote by Shawn Achor
Stress quotes by William Allen White
#171. You say that freedom of utterance is not for time of stress, and I reply with the sad truth that only in time of stress is freedom of utterance in danger? Only when free utterance is suppressed is it needed, and when it is needed it is most vital to justice. #Quote by William Allen White
Stress quotes by Andreas Heinz
#172. Altogether, these observations suggest that several processes contribute to psychotic experience: the loss of familiarity with the world, hypothetically associated with noisy information processing; increased novelty detection mediated by the hippocampus; associated alterations of prefrontal cortical processing, which have reliably been associated with impairments in working memory and other executive functions; increased top-down effects of prior beliefs mediated by the frontal cortex that may reflect compensatory efforts to cope with an increasingly complex and unfamiliar world; and finally disinhibition of subcortical dopaminergic neurotransmission, which increases salience attribution to otherwise irrelevant stimuli. Furthermore, increased noise of chaotic or stress-dependent dopamine firing can reduce the encoding of errors of reward prediction elicited by primary and secondary reinforcers, thus contributing to a subjective focusing of attention on apparently novel and mysterious environmental cues while reducing attention and motivation elicited by common and natural and social stimuli. #Quote by Andreas Heinz

#173. Nothing is miserable unless you think it so; and on the other hand, nothing brings happiness unless you are content with it. #Quote by Boethius
Stress quotes by Ann Voskamp
#174. Every time I surrender to stress, aren't I advertising the unreliability of God? #Quote by Ann Voskamp
Stress quotes by Wayne Dyer
#175. Meditation isn't just something we do to make ourselves more peaceful and to take some of the stress out of our lives. We do it because it's the only direct experience we can have of knowing God. Because God is that which is indivisible. Everything else in the universe, in the physical world, is divisible. Up and down, good and bad, right and wrong, male and female, and so on. But that which is indivisible in our physical experience is called silence. And when you get into silence, you're coming to know the indivisibleness of your life - and that's conscious contact. #Quote by Wayne Dyer
Stress quotes by Paula Stokes
#176. Once I accepted the fact that I was bad luck, I shied away from group activities. And groups. And activities. I started spending a lot of time in my room, tucked under my covers reading books. There's only so much damage a book can do, and I wasn't worried about hurting myself. Accidentally hurting yourself is way better than hurting other people.
Sure, I got lonely for a while. But getting invited to slumber parties just wasn't worth the stress of wondering if I might accidentally burn down the house with my flat iron or be the only survivor of a freak sleepover massacre. And loneliness is just like everything else - if you endure it long enough, you get used to it. #Quote by Paula Stokes
Stress quotes by David Deida
#177. In any given moment, a man's growth is optimized if he leans just beyond his edge, his capacity, his fear. He should not be too lazy, happily stagnating in the zone of security and comfort. Nor should he push far beyond his edge, stressing himself unnecessarily, unable to metabolize his experience. He should lean just slightly beyond the edge of fear and discomfort. Constantly. In everything he does. #Quote by David Deida
Stress quotes by Bianca McCormick-Johnson
#178. Whatever's got you down is causing a great deal of stress. Pick yourself up and reflect on the positive things about your life. You'd be surprised at how one slingshot of optimism can overturn the deep dark thoughts affecting your mood and making you vulnerable. #Quote by Bianca McCormick-Johnson
Stress quotes by Danzae Pace
#179. Stress is the trash of modern life-we all generate it but if you don't dispose of it properly, it will pile up and overtake your life. #Quote by Danzae Pace
Stress quotes by Rachel Naomi Remen
#180. Perhaps losing integrity with yourself is the greatest stress of all, far more hurtful to us than competition, time pressure, or lack of respect. Our vitality is rooted in our integrity. When we do not live in one piece, our life force becomes divided. Becoming separated from our authentic values may weaken us. #Quote by Rachel Naomi Remen
Stress quotes by The Raveness
#181. I danced in the flames and pranced on the shames of those whose names I could not reveal. I have been told, exhaustingly by a genus of psychiatry, that to forget allegedly means to heal but if only such a thought became real. To die when compared to living has, at times, seemed like the lesser evil. #Quote by The Raveness
Stress quotes by Richard Matheson
#182. As her analyst had told her: the deeper buried the distress, the further into the body it went. The digestive system was about as far as it could go to hide. #Quote by Richard Matheson
Stress quotes by Andrew J. Bernstein
#183. Stress is a byproduct of subconscious beliefs you have about the world. You can't choose not to believe something. You believe it because you think it's true. To eliminate stress, you must learn to challenge these beliefs so that you see them differently. #Quote by Andrew J. Bernstein
Stress quotes by Saki
#184. For he was a god who laid some special stress on the fierce impatient side of things ... #Quote by Saki
Stress quotes by Vanilla Ice
#185. I use the music to vent, and a lot of the stuff that I am writing about or was writing about contained a lot of anger and anxiety, stress and depression, so that's how the album came out so dark. #Quote by Vanilla Ice
Stress quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#186. The field of consciousness is tiny. It accepts only one problem at a time. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Stress quotes by Cathy Burnham Martin
#187. Skip the urge to respond to a road rage invitation. I find that my days are far more smooth and pleasant when I don't give someone the leverage to annoy or stress me. Just smile, giggle to yourself, or wave "hi" with a wag of your pinky finger, if you must. But then the incident is over, and no stress or annoyance remains, at least not in my car. The self-centered driver has the negative attitude. Don't let someone else's poor behavior choices become contagious. #Quote by Cathy Burnham Martin
Stress quotes by Katie Heaney
#188. Why would I want to go out to dinner and a movie with someone I'm not completely crazy about ... getting someone else involved means I have to put on a nicer outfit and stress out about the way I look chewing my food. If I'm going to have to consider my chewing face, I only want to do it for someone I think I might be able to really like. #Quote by Katie Heaney
Stress quotes by Hannah Arendt
#189. For it is evident that those who regard the whole earth as their future territory will stress the organ of domestic violence and will rule conquered territory with police methods and personnel rather than with the army. #Quote by Hannah Arendt
Stress quotes by Simon Sinek
#190. Most organizations only focus on WHAT they do and HOW they do it - tactics and strategies - and they aren't even aware that this thing called the WHY exists. Focusing on only two pieces of a three piece puzzle leaves an organization, or a career, inherently out of balance. Being out of balance, only operating on two of the three pieces, shows up in different ways - increased stress, loss of passion, obsession with what your competition is doing, being forced to play the price game, trouble differentiating. These are all signs that the WHY is missing. #Quote by Simon Sinek
Stress quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#191. You can be effective in this world without stress. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Stress quotes by Meik Wiking
#192. But one of the main reasons why Denmark does so well in international happiness surveys is the welfare state, as it reduces uncertainty, worries and stress in the population. You can say that Denmark is the happiest country in the world or you can say that Denmark is the least unhappy country in the world. The welfare state is really good (not perfect, but good) at reducing extreme unhappiness. Universal and free health care, free university education and relatively generous unemployment benefits go a long way towards reducing unhappiness. #Quote by Meik Wiking
Stress quotes by Robert O. Becker
#193. It may be hard to convince ourselves that something we can't see, hear, touch, taste, or smell can still hurt us so dreadfully. Yet the fact must be faced, just as we've learned a healthy fear of nuclear radiation. Certain scientists, some perhaps acting in a program of deliberate disinformation, keep telling the public that we still don't know whether electropollution is a threat to human health. That's simply not true. Certainly we need to know more, but a multitude of risks have been well documented.

Three dangers overshadow all others. The first has been conclusively proven: ELF electromagnetic fields vibrating at about 30 to 100 hertz, even if they're weaker than the earth's field, interfere with the cues that keep our biological cycles properly timed; chronic stress and impaired disease resistance result. Second, the available evidence strongly suggests that regulation of cellular growth processes is impaired by electropollution, increasing cancer rates and producing serious reproductive problems. Electromagnetic weapons constitute a third class of hazards culminating in climatic manipulation from a sorcerer's-apprentice level of ignorance. #Quote by Robert O. Becker
Stress quotes by Kiran Dintyala
#194. The Concept of Internal and External Stressor is a Misnomer. All Stress is Created Finally Through an Internal Mechanism Mediated by Our Thoughts. #Quote by Kiran Dintyala
Stress quotes by Bao Shu
#195. The recorder consisted of a biochip smaller than the head of a pin implanted into the hippocampus and nanosensors embedded throughout the body. Normally, the system lay dormant. But as soon as it detected severe deviations from the norm in various brain activity parameters - indicative of the stress caused by imminent death or great danger - the black-box would automatically contact the police and record the short-term memory in the hippocampus via molecular scanning. In the event of death, about one to two minutes of memories preceding the cessation of brain activity could be decrypted from the black box. #Quote by Bao Shu
Stress quotes by Cathy Caruth
#196. It is indeed the truth of the traumatic experience that forms the center of its psychopathology; it is not a pathology of falsehood or displacement of meaning, but of history itself (p. 5) #Quote by Cathy Caruth
Stress quotes by Kiran Dintyala
#197. At its core, stress is simply a state of mind. Everything else is after the fact. #Quote by Kiran Dintyala
Stress quotes by Ann Voskamp
#198. In a storm of struggles, I have tried to control the elements, clasp the fist tight so as to protect self and happiness. But stress can be an addiction, and worry can be our lunge for control, and we forget the answer to this moment is always yes because of Christ. #Quote by Ann Voskamp
Stress quotes by Herbert Benson
#199. The relaxation response is a physical state of deep rest that changes the physical and emotional responses to stress ... and the opposite of the fight or flight response. #Quote by Herbert Benson
Stress quotes by Moryah DeMott
#200. Having a rather pessimistic outlook on life makes for the best philosophical discussions; distress is the only real reason to question something; comfort often leads to the inability to change. #Quote by Moryah DeMott
