【The Upside of Stress: Why stress is good for you (and how to get good at it)】の【Will This Book Help Me with My Stress?(No.190-242)】を読みました。


The fact that we use the word stress to describe so much of life is both a blessing and a curse.


So as we begin this journey together, I offer this conception of stress: Stress is what arises when something you care about is at stake.


I can't guarantee that every idea in this book is going to help with every form of stress or suffering. However, I no longer worry that the benefits of embracing stress apply only to the small stuff. To my surprise, embracing stress has helped me the most in the most difficult situations- dealing with the death of loved one, coping with chronic pain, and even overcoming a paralyzing fear of flying.


Why would seeing the good in stress help in these circumstances? I believe it is because embracing stress changes how you think about yourself and what you can handle. It is not a purely intellectual exercise. Focusing on the upside of stress transforms how you experience it physically and emotionally.

「It is not a purely intellectual exercise.」で、「越三昧耶」を思い出しました。
