That said, striving hard for a stress-free life is foolishness!
Gudjon Bergmann rightly said, “There is no such thing as a stress-free life. No evidence has ever been presented which suggests that a stress-free life can ever be achieved. Stress can be managed, relieved and lessened, but never eliminated.”

Can you eliminate stress caused by sickness, failure, relationship issues or situations like COVID-19? No.
There many such things in our life that are not in our control. So, one should always focus on how to manage or relieve stress, but not eliminating it from life.

Hi there! I'm just a normal person enjoying the process of life. Practicing Buddhism, I believe in the law of cause and effect. Reading and writing is always a pleasure. I enjoy researching on a range of subjects – science, psychology, and technology. Nothing can satiate my soul than good music, horror movies, psycho-thriller, and crime stuff. I enjoy photography, music and watching comedy videos. Talking to people, learning new experiences, sharing my knowledge through blogs, motivating others are things that I always look forward to.View Author posts
