50 Stress Quotes to Help You Calm Down


Stress resistance as a personality quality is the ability to adequately endure significant intellectual, volitional and emotional stress (overload), a tense or extreme situation without any particular harmful consequences for the business, others and one’s health.

In a normal state, about sixty thousand thoughts fly through a person’s head per day. Stress is when one dominant thought drills into the brain, and the rest are even afraid to stick their nose out. This sign can be used to diagnose whether a person is experiencing stress, or is simply restless, anxious or agitated.

A stress-resistant person has one remarkable property. People sometimes call this “thick skin.” In fact, in a stressful situation, he reserves the right to choose how to react to a particular stimulus. A hot-tempered person robs himself of the right to choose; he immediately reacts angrily to an irritant.

A stress-resistant person is usually reasonable. He says to himself: “I’m in a traffic jam.” Nothing dedends on me. If I give vent to my feelings, start to get nervous, worry and swear, nothing will change, the traffic jam as an insurmountable circumstance will not dissipate from my dissatisfaction. But my mood will deteriorate and I’ll come to work irritated and exhausted. Therefore, I’d better turn on the radio and listen to classical music.

Stress tolerance is the ability to ignore all kinds of irritants, remaining calm and serene.

Why is stress resistance a positive personality trait? Stress resistance helps a person to adequately learn the lessons of life, change his understanding of happiness, that is, realize the main goal of his life.

Stress resistance is the ability to navigate an extreme situation, to sensibly and calmly repel excessive attacks of irritants on the psyche, to realize what is really significant to me, and what is just a “pot-bellied little thing”, from which you can simply fence yourself off with a thick wall with the inscription “not available”.

Is stress tolerance a male or female personality trait? The question is complex. Women adapt better to prolonged adverse effects (blockade, deprivation). Men are not women's competitors in long-term stress resistance. At the same time, in the event of sudden and unexpected troubles, women are significantly inferior to men in stress resistance. For example, a man who finds himself driving in an extreme situation will fight for his life until the last second. Women, as a rule, in such situations abandon the steering wheel, cover their eyes with their hands and scream deafeningly.

Stress resistance is not “stepping on the throat of your own song” and “not being silent in a rag.” Artificial suppression and containment of emotions has nothing to do with stress resistance. For example, a person with demonstrated self-control internally reacts violently to some external stimulus, but through an effort of will prefers to remain silent. In other words, he showed restraint, but he has no right to claim resistance to stress.

Quotes from Sharon Melnik’s book “Resilience to Stress. How to remain calm and highly effective in any situation"


I What can you do to change your attitude and adapt to the situation? How to prioritize? How to take action while controlling everything you can control? Describe what steps you can take specifically. You may want to discuss this with trusted colleagues. Try an exercise together to identify your zones of control.

II Change your attitude towards the situation. Looking at a problem from a different angle can help you find new solutions. Learn to control your physiology. Focus when you're overwhelmed, find energy when you feel overwhelmed, and calm down when you're anxious or irritable. Solve the problem. Eliminate the source of your stress and you'll never have to deal with it again.

III There are three categories of stress relief mechanisms. Regardless of the situation, you can always: change your attitude towards circumstances; adapt your physiological response; take steps to solve the problem.

IV Set a goal and designate “on” and “off” periods. To recover, choose activities that relax you (such as deep breaths or meditation) or activities that fill you with energy (such as special exercises). The best option is to alternate them.

V One of the most important skills for success in the modern world is the ability to pay full attention to what you are doing at one moment, and then switch your full attention to a new task.

VI By focusing on factors that you cannot control, you automatically set yourself up for stress and again find yourself in a vicious circle from which you see no way out.

VII What might be a cause for concern? How do you know if stress is getting out of control? A typical first sign is when you say to yourself, “I don’t have time to go to the gym this week.” Another alarm bell - “I’ll sit longer to get everything done.” In addition, notes of irritation in your voice can be harbingers of stress.

VIII The essence of the “horizon point” concept is to set a goal for yourself every day and control the process of achieving it. If your goal is to develop the qualities characteristic of a successful person, stop meekly carrying out all the instructions and solving other people’s problems. No matter what difficulties come your way, you can always control how you react to them.

IX Three basic rules: you need to change your attitude towards the problem, your physical reaction to the problem or the problem itself.

X Turn obstacles into opportunities: change your mindset and look at the situation from a different perspective.

. I don't like the massage process itself. I prefer the ending, where I'm relaxed and still, thinking, "I don't have to wear a bra anymore." I don’t like the process itself - I feel awkward being in front of a stranger in my underpants. I end up booking a massage, reaching a high level of nervousness during the warm-up before the massage, that during the massage itself, she [the masseuse] can, at best, bring me back to the original level of stress I was in before ordering the massage.

Best book review

Why zebras don’t get ulcers and why people are “so scared to live”

If you are interested in biology, the theory of evolution, the psychological and physiological aspects of human behavior, then Robert Sapolsky is exactly the scientist who, in completely everyday language (with minimal inclusion of terms scary to the ear) and with sparkling humorous inserts, will talk about the most complex processes occurring every second in your life. body

Sapolsky’s genuine passion for representatives of the animal world (in this book, especially for zebras, rats, primates and people) allows him to clearly illustrate thoughts and facts that are so complex for the unprepared Reader, which in the Author’s presentation cease to seem something unattainable for the average homo sapiens.

It is unlikely that it will be possible to talk about the “Psychology of Stress” in a nutshell. The author goes both “in depth” and “in breadth”, which allows you to look at the influence of stress on ANY living organism from different angles in order to realize that in fact stress is not a problem, but an important survival mechanism that is still effectively used by almost all animals, well, except for the “king of all animals” Man. Indeed, for our species, stress has long turned into a serious illness, and a complex biochemical process created for protection began to slowly destroy its owners.

I repeat, the book is extremely multifaceted. The reader will be in the skin of a zebra and run with lions across the savannah, not to mention close contact with rodents and monkeys. The rather rich part about the biochemistry of the body is simplified as much as possible, at least I, as a person who does not have a biological or medical education, mastered it without unnecessary stress.

It is also worth noting the easy language of presenting information, flavored with truly excellent humor. It's accessible and, most importantly, a pleasure to read!

Is science difficult? Science is cool!

To my taste, Robert Sapolsky is the personification of a progressive scientist, open to dialogue with an interested listener: discussing current topics and really wanting to convey quite complex information in the most simplified form to those who are ready to hear it.
