Haven’t you heard that stress is bad for your health? There is even a popular saying “this stress is killing me”. But today I found this very eye-opening video from Kelly McGonigal ( shared by my friend Paushali on Facebook). Kelly, who is a popular Health Psychologist, discloses in this video that ‘our negative belief about stress is more harmful than the stress itself’! Watch the video to find out all new perspective about ‘stress’. Don’t forget to comment what you think of it!

You know it’s not just true in the subject of ‘stress’ but about any topic. There is seldom any universal truth. What we ‘believe’ becomes our own personal truth. And this is proven now scientifically.
Those who believes that life is fun, that’s how life becomes. Those who believe life is difficult, that’s how life turns out. Those who believe that only honest way to be rich is to work hard, can never make a lot of money without working for long hours, but those who believes that money comes to them effortlessly & easily tend to earn honestly but from comparatively less effort. Same is for health, relationship everything. Don’t you know some who eat fast food & doesn’t exercise much, but still maintain a healthy & fit physique?
How our mind works and how our thought process & belief system affect our lives, are very interesting fields of study!
