12 September 2017 Blog News Timeless Truth

Stress can fin its way into our lives whether we like it or not on a daily basis. So what do  you do about it so that you can live a healthier, more focused and at the same time more relaxing life.

Here are a few  timeless thoughts on stress and how to handle it from the people who came before us (and some from people who are here with us now).


  1. The time to relax is when you don’t have time for it.”
    – Sydney J. Harris
  2. “One of the best pieces of advice I ever got was from a horse master. He told me to go slow to go fast. I think that applies to everything in life. We live as though there aren’t enough hours in the day but if we do each thing calmly and carefully we will get it done quicker and with much less stress.”
    – Viggo Mortensen         
  3. “Much of the stress that people feel doesn’t come from having too much to do. It comes from not finishing what they’ve started.”
    – David Allen
  4. “In times of great stress or adversity, it’s always best to keep busy, to plow your anger and your energy into something positive.”
    – Lee Iacocca
  5. “It is not a daily increase, but a daily decrease. Hack away at the inessentials.”
    – Bruce Lee          
  6. “The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another.”
    – William James
  7. “We can easily manage if we will only take, each day, the burden appointed to it. But the load will be too heavy for us if we carry yesterday’s burden over again today, and then add the burden of the morrow before we are required to bear it.”
    – John Newton
