Kia Esmaily Posted almost 2 years ago If we address the stress that Kelly speaks of we can move towards my idea of a "Healthy Mind = Healthy Body" theory of living. I agree with Kelly that we should stop demonizing stress. I truly believe stress is being more and more over-hyped these days. However, in my opinion this is easier said than done. How can we, as simple human beings expect ourselves to be (emotionally) strong enough to resist each and every stressful factor in our lives, whether internal or external? Correct me if I'm wrong but Isn't this somehow like giving people tips to resist the temptation of adultery and expect everyone to ignore sexual temptations during their whole existence? Or write a handbook for drug addicts and expect them to stay away from drugs. And so on... We could turn this world into a true paradise...wouldn't we? I really appreciate her good intentions and I actually find the idea pretty interesting but I do not believe we can program ourselves to "be and stay positive", no matter how. After all, we are no machines. We are just made of flesh and blood. Thank you all for your comments and your thoughts. Very interesting subject!
