How do you handle pressure? The pressure that comes from dealing with relationships, work, finances etc. can sometimes feel overwhelming, especially if you’re the kind of person that tends to combine them all in your head as one big ball.

However, pressure and stress are a natural part of the growth cycle. Everything you see in nature that has existed over time has undergone tremendous amounts of pressure and stress. Pressure and stress are the twin forces that have been responsible for the fittest and the most adaptable to continue to survive and thrive.

Journaling can be a great way to deal with stress because you are able to get the things that are causing you stress out of your head and out on to paper which can very often lead to giving you a new perspective on your problems and lead to new solutions.

The twins are never going to go away they will just change over time depending on your stage in life. So, instead of wishing that you have less pressure it’s wiser to spend your time developing coping mechanisms that can help you deal with it.

“Don’t wish it were easier, wish you were better.” – Jim Rohn
