Life is a journey with sorrows and happiness. We have to face many challenges and unexpected problems which cause stress.

How to overcome stress?

I found an interesting discussion video of Gopinath Muthukad, a famous magician, and motivational speaker from Kerala, India.

Below is a summary of a YouTube video of Gopinath Muthukad in the Malayalam language. Since the English transcript was not available, I tried to translate it into English. There can be errors in the translation, but I hope you can understand the matter.

The question asked to him was about the problems of people working abroad.

They are facing many problems and challenges there and living under stress.

As you know lakhs of Keralites are working in different parts of the world. There is a common saying that there will be no island on earth where you can’t find the presence of a Malayali.

His reply was as below:

What is the aim of people leaving their home, family and going out of the state or abroad to work in a new place with a different culture of people?

The main aim is to earn money to buy a small land, build a small house, educate kids and so on.

In the workplace, they have to face a lot of problems. They try their best to overcome the problems, but sometimes they find it difficult to manage and fulfil their wishes and that makes them stressed. You may like to read how to fight against workplace stress.

Some people may have friends there, but some may not have any friends to share their problems and hence mental stress attack them.

Here are 4 Tips to overcome stress

The aim of your work is to earn CASH. Let us expand the word CASH.

1. Confidence

What is the importance of Confidence?

  • To do anything, we need self-confidence.
  • Stand before the boss with the raised head.
  • To do a job satisfactorily.

You need attention to everything surrounding you to not fall into any pitfall. There are many pitfalls around you.

Attention avoid negative friends

Many people around you may behave as good friends, but they may be looking for a chance to pull you down. You must know and be careful about the people around you. Avoid negative friends and make more good friends.

You should be aware of yourselves because your family and children are the most important in your life. If you fell into a pitfall and lose everything, who will be there for your family and children? So always keep attention to your surrounding.

3. Sincerity

Sincerity and honesty are very important in life. Today many people find drugs and alcohol as a solution to problems.

According to them, drugs and alcohol is the best solution to forget the problems. Do you think so?

This is not at all a permanent solution to problems. Your life has a purpose. There can be problems and challenges in life, but you have no right to do anything which can cause damage to your life.

4. Hard work

Nobody can achieve success without hard work. If you look into the stories of successful persons, they all have faced a lot of challenges in life. They were fearless of failures. With a strong mind, they overcame all the obstacles and became successful.

If you do hard work sincerely and honestly, you will never lose the job because the employer cannot kick you out.

Where is the real problem?

The real problem is in our minds. There are two stages.

Breakdown: The mind breaks down and fell into a big pitfall. Only darkness and there is no other option.

What we should do at this stage?

We should divert the breakdown to Breakthrough. We should have the strength to overcome obstacles and move forward.

Friendship is an important factor at this stage. We should have an honest friend to share our problems with others. Most times, we hide our problems. This is not good for mental health. We should free up the mind.

Most times, they do not share their problems with family members because they do not want to make them sad. Sharing problems with family is important for happiness.

If we have strength, we can reach a place. We should not block ourselves. If we lose something, or could not achieve as per wish nothing will happen if we have a strong mind. We should make our minds very powerful.

Everyone has problems. Facing challenges and overcoming obstacles with a strong mind is necessary for success in life. Never Allow Obstacles To Break Success In Your Life.

If your job is not related to physical work, you should have a routine of small physical exercises, gardening and other household work.

Psychologists say physical activities are very helpful for mental health because when doing physical activities our mind is concentrated on that job. Hence negative thoughts and stress will fade away from the mind.

Also when you see the growth of the plants, flowers and fruits, your mind becomes happy and self-appreciate your hard work.

Why don’t you try to produce vegetables in your garden and eat fresh organic vegetables for good health? This way you have a double benefit. You can overcome stress and also produce vegetables for your family.

Read good books and jokes, listen to Relaxing music for stress relief, watch comedy, share your problems with family members and honest friends.
