How To Destress? Commit!

How to destress by commitment is what I am all about today!

Hey hey, how are you?  I hope you are super duper!

A little over a month ago I posted 'How To Destress' and then I posted 'Destress Your Life'

Today I want to talk about how to destress by making a commitment.

When we move from stress to destress we are making weak things strong, and we are moving away from things that give us stress, and we move towards things that will make us feel success.

What the heck is success?  Many people think that success is related to money but in reality, success is defined by the person who will live it. 

What does success mean to you?  Whatever you said to answer that I can bet you a million bucks that whatever it is, it will make you happy.  Better yet, you think it will make you happy.

In my mind, success means different things to different people, but it all boils down to happiness.  Happiness equals success.  I betcha I am right about that.  How do I know?  I know because everyone who I have ever talked to names the success for them and it is what makes them happy.

Okay, blah, blah, blah, back to how to destress by making a commitment.

Let's make weak things strong, shall we?

Pick one thing that you think that is your weakness, and you want to make it strong.

For example, do you worry?  I ask that because worry is the culprit of stress.  If you worry, and worry is stress, then worry is a weakness and you can make it strong by moving towards the opposite, which is faith.

My weakness, right now, is physical.  There was a time, not so long ago, I would run three miles a day, and ride a bike about thirteen miles a day.  What do I do now?  Nada!  Nada thing!  Well, that is not entirely true.  Last Monday, I started to walk five miles every morning in my effort to make a commitment to myself so that I may destress.

So, destress with me by picking something weak, and make a commitment to make it strong.

Have you picked the thing that is your weakness that you want to make strong?


Let's make a commitment to change for the better.

First, write down your weakness.  Mine is physical, I am out of shape.

Second, write down the opposite of the weakness, which is what you will commit to.  Mine is, I will be in shape.

Third, write it out as a specific goal of what you will do by what time frame.  Mine is, I will cut my walking time in half within thirty days, and I will ride my bike in the evening, for ten miles within 60 days.  So, within the first thirty days I will be run/walking 5 miles in half the time, and within sixty days I will do the 5 miles by foot in the morning, and 10 miles by bike in the evening.

That's it! 

1.  Write your weakness.

2.  Write the opposite, which is what you will commit to.

3.  Make it a goal that is specific as to what you will do, and by what time frame.

Let's do this!  We got this! 

Destress with me by making a commitment, and if you wanna, email it to me, and we can hold each other accountable.

Have a great day!  Have a great week!  I love you Sugah!
