Stop fighting your stress and lean into it so that you can actually let it go.

Go with it
Go with my stress instead of fighting it, makes the stress less aggressive

Not quite sure
It started out kind of funny; so different than most other meditations I've listened to. I wasn't sure where it was going or what I should do. In the end, it was right there of course! Acknowledge stress, accept it and then work on ways to alleviate it. I liked it and will listen to it again. Thanks.

Stress
This one actually stressed me out more. As if I should actually not be trying to take a break and need to get back to work instead

Stress has become a habit
.. so much that I sometimes think I only deserve things if I am stressed. Allowing myself to lean in and then to let go the stress is liberating.

Love it 😍
It's like a mental pill I can take to cope with stressful moments. Talk to my stress, address the issue if I can, if not let it go and be grateful for the experience.

Unlovable
Leaving an abusive relationship makes me feel unloved. Abuse destroys love. Because of my past, I take responsibility for the abuse. This continues to foster my shame based identity. To feel less shame, I seek out love. Even though I have a distorted since of love. This makes me prone to entering another abusive relationship. This makes me misrepresent reality. Instead of others being responsible for the abuse the second time, I am responsible. In this period of separation. I need to lean into the sadness, anger, and the shame. If I don't the cycle with repeat.

I felt his voice was a bit abrasive and didn't like that he kept saying 'stress'
It still felt good to sit quietly and focus on breath, while paying attention to tightness of chest because of 'stress'....

Laughter
Feeling my stress, made me realise the source and I wanted to laugh at the source. I felt I could allow myself relax in laughter, happiness for the future.

Stress lean in
I need to embrace listen and learn from my stress. Open up and listen as if It were listening to a small child.

Stress Lean In
So, the crux of dealing with intense streas somehow lies in being compassionate with it just like being the same with an anxious child. Knowing and understanding stress not only helps us in getting rid of it but also to identify and avoid future potential stressful situations, albeit those that are avoidable.

Stress Lean In
I like this meditation a lot. Most meditations I’ve come across encourage stopping stress, as opposed to leaning into it to find out what your body is trying to tell you. Brilliant!
