We cannot always avoid stress, so the best thing we can do is learn how to manage our stress. When we are at peace, we are living in the moment, when depressed, living in the past, when anxious, living in the future. The path to finding inner peace is as hard or as simple as a person makes the journey of self acceptance to be. It is a matter of accepting your life. Stop holding onto the past & chasing the future, embrace the moment.
“It is important to generate a good attitude, a good heart, as much as possible. From this, happiness in both short term and the long term for both yourself and others will come.” Dalai Lama
