Release the addiction to stress, release the addiction to ease

I don’t know much about healing-methods because I don’t’ get sick. The last time I was in a hospital was as a child, maybe 11 years old. After getting vaccinated I got a “mysterious illness” in which I couldn”t walk for two months. It was the last time I got vaccinated and the last time in a hospital.

In my experience, health has a lot to do with how you deal with stress/pressure and ease/relaxation. If you can welcome and embrace stress without getting addicted to it and also welcome and embrace things being easy and effortless without becoming entitled or complacent, you can live in a constant equilibirum, a state of flow.

As winter draws closer I love jumping into my cold outdoor pool in the morning. It teaches me to welcome stress or deal with resistance (not to mention being extremely healthy and refreshing). But the danger of that is getting addicted to it, like people get addicted to constantly working. So I don’t do it every morning.

Focus, Release. Breathe In, Breathe Out. Tense, Relax. It’s never one or the other but mastering both.
