There is this thing called Cortisol that gets released in your body when you are under stress. Cortisol blocks the good hormones you need to build and re-build after work outs etc. This is one of the main reasons everyone keeps saying that you need to de-stress your life. Find ways to manage stress. I am sure you have heard it all. I have Cortisol releasing all over me right now at the thought of trying to eliminate stress from life. I am a mortgage loan originator by day and sometimes by night as well. Most every situation has it’s stress. The appraisal comes back low, the inspections comes back with issues. These are two examples of stressors that effect the list agent (sellers rep) the buyers agent, the seller, the buyer and the list just goes on. So what do you do? Someone said today, just pull the weeds. It has to be a mind set. You are not going to allow this to effect you the way it used to.
I’m not saying that you roll over and not take charge during stressful times, just don’t dwell on it past what you have been able to control. This reaches as far as the people you have surrounding you. It really is true that you need to surround yourself with people that have like minded goals. In my situation, I’m mid 50’s and still aspire to event. Low level mind you, but the goal is still there. I’m certainly not going to surround myself with those that tell me this is extremely dangerous and for what? A ribbon?
Well that isn’t the only thing that I still plan on doing. I still plan on snow skiing, scuba diving and some jaunts on the Appalachian Trail. Pulling the weeds on situations around me that negatively impact these goals.
