Stress is a mess and clouds the mind from seeing solutions. Miracles happen in the present moment. Stress either drags the past into the present or projects worst case scenarios in the future. Living in the now moment in faith that a positive possibility awaits discovery initiates the release of stress--a spinning mind and turbulent gut.
Simple prayers bring you back to the now moment. Just saying the word "God" over and over calms the stormy internal seas. An inspiring affirmation is a perfect replacement for stressing kinds of thoughts.
It is true--change your mind, change your life.
