Anxiety and worry can take over our life if we allow it to. Whether we like it or not, constant stress and worry can physically make us sick. The good news through my experience of dealing with my own anxiety I have found there are ways to help alleviate anxiety. The first step is to figure out exactly what you're stressing about. Is it something you can change? Is it something you have no control over? By determining the root of your anxiety, you can better understand how you can overcome it.
I look at every experience as a blessing. Every chance I get to participate in something is an opportunity to learn something new. Even when the outcome is unfavourable, I push myself to find the deeper meaning. I become wiser with every error I make. I take the time to learn how to approach a situation differently the next time around. When someone in authority criticises my performance, I accept it. I use criticism to help me grow and do better in the future. I try to never make the same error twice. I accept that I am a flawed individual, but I strive to correct my weaknesses.

No matter what we believe about what happens once we pass, the fact is we’ll no longer be physically present on this earth. Bare with me I am not getting all "morbid" on you but I think it's important that instead of just being on a conveyor belt of life we ask ourselves; How can I deepen my experience of life to get the most from it?

Picking one day a week to eat vegetarian is an excellent place to start, and that’s the thinking behind the global movement for Meatless Mondays.

Wherever I go, I bring a smile with me because joy is part of who I am. I am happy because I choose to see life through appreciative eyes. I focus on my blessings so I can be happy with my life. There is nothing more beautiful than a smiling face. Regardless of the circumstances I encounter, the joy that is within me is reflected through my actions. Happiness is an attitude, and it is up to me.
