This Struggle Is Temporary

Updated: Apr 29

April is Stress Awareness Month. Take action to manage your stress beginning with this mantra.

On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being the highest), how stressed are you right now?

If you ask me this question every day for a week, I would probably give a different answer every day of the week.

Some days life is just stressful. There’s even a month to recognize that. April is Stress Awareness Month.

OK a lot of days feel stressful.

You discover that your favorite shirt has a rip in it. The strawberries you just bought became fuzzy and moldy overnight. Oh, and you stepped on a sharp corner of a toy. All before walking outside of your house for the day.

And I know that’s not just me.

These little stressors add up to a mountain of tension—if we don’t have strategies to manage it.

Yoga teaches us about the impermanence of everything and that the present moment is the only place life truly exists. Nothing is permanent—not a house, a job, a car, the moldy strawberries.

Whatever you’re going through, it’s temporary.
