Confucius say. So much of his writing is thematic towards becoming a superior being. Those don't thrive due to a lack of stress. Quite the contrary. They thrive despite an overabundance of stress.

I would suggest you some simple tips to help manage and reduce your stress level
  • Keep a positive attitude.
  • Accept that there are events that you cannot control.
  • Learn and practice relaxation techniques; try meditation, yoga for stress management.
  • Exercise regularly. Your body can fight stress better when it is fit.
  • Eat healthy, well-balanced meals.
  • Learn to manage your time more effectively.

Hi guys, I’m asking you for help because many of you are far more advanced in this field and have some real wisdom to share. I’m going to write this as specific as I can so hopefully the advice you can offer will be applicable to me.

Background:
I’m an introvert and a highly sensitive person (INFJ if anyone is interested)
fellow INFJ, welcome to having one of the worst personality types for the modern world. For us, the only real thing that seems to work is finding a job where we’re having meaningful conversations or genuinely helping people. That or just not working, but that’s not really an option without saving.

Yeah I think I am on this thin line between INFJ/INTJ. Perhaps I could just alter my self-concept to pick the latter as to make stress management a bit easier because the former really cares what others are thinking while the latter is a bit more objective in this department..

Lots of helpful tips shared. Here is an interesting podcast that discusses the evolutionary biological and neurological underpinnings of anxiety: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/backincont ... -anxiety-1

Lots of slow, rhythmic exercise (swimming, biking, walking) may also be helpful. Personally, 15,000 to 20,000 is my target plus biking and some yoga. Another interesting article: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nytime ... t.amp.html

This is one of my favorite guided meditations: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=dclry8TsLLs
