About Me

I love exploring new avenues with "passion for impossible" which were not treaded by others so far. Not bound by any race or country or religion for me to associate with and contribute in their life. Regular blogger sharing my folly as "wisdom" for others. Please visit my blog http://www.ncnarayanan.blogspot.com to learn the moment of truth I faced in my life that made me wiser to handle this complex phenomena called "LIFE"

Stress Management - Content & Context

In one of the interviews Jaggy was asked "How do I manage stress?" He was puzzled to know why human beings have to 'manage' something which is of no value to them? I could understand we have to manage our business, family, properties etc which has a return on investment of efforts but why manage 'Stress'?.
When I was young I never heard of this word 'Stress' except during my mechanical engineering course where my professor taught me about the stress in the Applied Mechanics class. He said "Whenever a material offers a resistance to a force it develops a stress". Taking cue from mechanical stress 'Only when we offer resistance it life events it results in stress'. For example if I push my hand into the water, it does not develop a stress as water never offers resistance but still the most powerful entity on creation.
Jaggy defines 'CONTENT' as what is presented to us in life; for example 'traffic jam' or 'nagging wife'. The 'CONTEXT' is what our interpretations are. I cannot do anything about the CONTENT in this case is traffic jam. But I can alter my 'CONTEXT' - how I use that time to listen to a music or a discourse without fuming & fretting. The real reason for stress is not the 'CONTENT' but our 'CONTEXT'.
Why so many rich people in the US have to take sleeping pills to sleep? We have been sleeping in the mother's womb ever since we have nucleated? One cannot forget to eat or sleep. STRANGE!! We have screwed up our life with our CONTEXT when the content has no power on us but our CONTEXT has which is in our control. Animals don't have stress as they have no CONTEXT.
Don't miss each precious moments of life in STRSSS which is the choice you have made!!
With whole my heart.
