James Spithill

Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Francis Schaeffer
Everything you’ve told yourself you ought to do, your mind thinks you should do right now.

Brie Larson
I’ve got stress like anybody else, and it builds up during the day. Like, I’ll be trying to do something on the computer, and I’ll get stuck, so I go to the help section. And it just enrages me, because why even call it a help section at all? There’s nothing in any way ‘helpful’ about it.
Lewis Black
If there is no word that means you don’t have the concept. In North Korea they eliminate the words: depression, stress, dictatorship, human rights. You cannot think of those. That’s why all the brainwashing was possible.

When you win a big title like the French Open, it’s tough. The emotion in doing this is really up and down. Afterwards, you feel a little bit lonely, a bit of depression mentally. Because it’s so much stress and emotion, so many people around – and then it’s completely empty.
Stan Wawrinka

Booker Little
The civil rights situation is like a pregnancy. It will get worse, I believe, before it gets better. What the usual pregnancy comes to is a decent baby. That is what we all hope will be the end product of this stress. It is customary, at the end of a pregnancy, to have for your pains a decent baby.
Gwendolyn Brooks
Most female CEOs have been more understanding than their male counterparts, of the stress that new mothers experience to ‘do it all,’ which often means, ‘all by themselves.’ Why? They’ve been there. They understand the policies needed to keep women in the workforce.

Gabrielle Bernstein
People understand the tremendous sacrifices that veterans have made – and they instinctively want to do something for them.

Eric Greitens

Byron Katie
If your goal is to make money, becoming an entrepreneur is a sucker’s bet.

Eric Ries

Sakyong Mipham

John H. Makin
Ignore reality, there’s nothing you can do about it.
Natalie Imbruglia
Without even knowing it, we are assaulted by a high note of urgency all the time. We end up pacing ourselves to the city rhythm whether or not it’s our own. In time we even grow hard of hearing to the rest of the world. Like a violinist stuck next to the timpani, we may lose the ability to hear our own instrument.
Ellen Goodman
If you start thinking of stress as not a bad thing but inevitable, resulting in change that itself leads to transformation that leads to sharp and radical changes… it can be a very useful way of thinking.
Marilyn Ferguson

Dean Ornish
Stress is a designer ailment that many of the so-called afflicted suffer from with pride.

The human mind has a primitive ego defense mechanism that negates all realities that produce too much stress for the brain to handle. It’s called Denial.

Tom Berenger
The more you change and stress the body the quicker it’s going to adapt and change.
Jillian Michaels
Fishing in a bucket. The total hopelessness of the activity was very soothing. It was the perfect sport. Without the emotional stresses of success and failure, she was entirely free to enjoy the pleasures of the moment… It was a good hobby, and cheap, and if more people did it more often
Hilary McKay
I want to stress to people to be themselves instead of trying to be like others.
Karrueche Tran
One today is worth two tomorrows.

Lawrence M. Krauss
I think the stress on income inequality is something that every American should take seriously.

Janine di Giovanni
I made some studies, and reality is the leading cause of stress amongst those in touch with it. I can take it in small doses, but as a lifestyle, I found it too confining. It was just too needful; it expected me to be there for it all the time, and with all I have to do–I had to let something go.
Jane Wagner
I think most entrepreneurs would refer to themselves as “accidental”. No one looks for stress and pain. You stumble on to it. Also, no one looks for pots of gold, it just happens.
Ronnie Apteker
I must stress, basically, the very fact that we do have orangutan rehabilitation means that we have failed to do what is really important, and that is rescue the wild orangutan in its habitat.
Willie Smits
I started the Stress Reduction Clinic in 1979. The idea of bringing Buddhist meditation without the Buddhism into the mainstream of medicine was tantamount to the Visigoths being at the gates about to tear down the citadel of Western civilization.
Jon Kabat-Zinn
As important as it is to learn how to deal with different kinds of people, truly toxic people will never be worth your time and energy – and they take a lot of each. Toxic people create unnecessary complexity, strife, and, worst of all, stress.
Travis Bradberry
What some people wanted was sometimes too hard to get, and the stress of trying was sometimes too hard to deal with… Maybe doing well in life was just too hard for some people.
Walter Dean Myers

Stress is real, and you never know what a person is going through behind the camera.
Soulja Boy
I think people think filmmaking is fun, but I’ve never thought that. For me it’s always been a lot of work and pain and stress.
Benjamin Lewin
Tuesday night I reorganized my record collection. I often do this at periods of emotional stress. There are some people who would find this a pretty dull way to spend an evening, but I’m not one of them. This is my life, and it’s nice to be able to wade in it, immerse your arms in it, touch it.

Sowcar Janaki
You say that freedom of utterance is not for time of stress, and I reply with the sad truth that only in time of stress is freedom of utterance in danger? Only when free utterance is suppressed is it needed, and when it is needed it is most vital to justice.
William Allen White
I am convinced that in all history there has never been a greater need to Pray for our Pastors than exists right now! Pastors are experiencing an unprecedented wave of attacks, stresses, challenges. obstacles. pressures.
Saint Augustine
That’s why I got into Pilates: because I can reduce the stress and impact in my joints while still being able to increase strength and flexibility, and it’s going to pay dividends.

Stress is a function not of events, but of our view of those events.

Paul Oakenfold
Here’s my take: People watch sports to get away from day-to-day stresses, work, illness, financial worries. We don’t need to be reminded of political divisions.
Jeanine Pirro
I’m a dog lover. With the holidays, everything gets a little bit hectic. There’s a lot on your mind, and maybe you forget that your animals also feel that stress as well. So try to keep them on the same routine; try to keep the chocolate out of their mouth.
Justin Hartley
I promise you, the gym has taken away so much of my stress. It has helped calm me down.
Khloe Kardashian

Andrea Leadsom
Stress comes from the way you relate to events or situations.

When stress is the basic state of mind, even good things stress us out. We have to learn to let go.

Peter Senge
Reality is the leading cause of stress among those in touch with it.

Fred Armisen
In order to have skin that glows and looks healthy and actually is healthy, you need to look at the whole picture and have a holistic approach to it. A lot of it is exercising regularly, drinking enough water, getting enough sleep, and keeping stress down.
Allison Williams
There’s no real downside to any sort of work that I do. I’m all so grateful for it, but I wouldn’t say that animated work is just a walk in the park. It is easy, it’s really fun, but I don’t know why I really stress myself out every time I’m about to go in.

When my dad passed away, I was under a lot of stress with planning a funeral, trying to pick out just the right flowers and pictures, and simply trying to find the right way to say goodbye.
Natalya Neidhart
I didn’t start sweating until I had children. That was one of the first things I realized when my daughter Violet was born – I started getting wicked BO. You know there’s a difference between basketball BO and stress BO? This was definitely stress BO. Like, new dad BO.

To be totally without stress is to be dead.
Hans Selye
When you become famous super young, you learn how to behave by the rules because you’re the one that has to take the stress. But that also creates a barrier that I really didn’t want.
People tend to put entertainers on pedestals. We’re human beings, just like you. You may see us smiling, and whether we have money or not, we still have bills to pay, we still have our stresses. I think a lot of people want to focus on others’ shortcomings to make themselves feel better. And it’s a very sad thing.

Wayne Dyer
It’s not the situation that’s causing your stress, it’s your thoughts, and you can change that right here and now. You can choose to be peaceful right here and now. Peace is a choice, and it has nothing to do with what other people do or think.

Ziggy Marley
Stress is a byproduct of subconscious beliefs you have about the world. You can’t choose not to believe something. You believe it because you think it’s true. To eliminate stress, you must learn to challenge these beliefs so that you see them differently.
Andrew J. Bernstein
Stress is extremely harmful to the body. Even mainstream medicine is recognizing how many diseases stress causes.

M. Scott Peck
I went through absolute stress and mayhem. I couldn’t go out, because people were constantly on my back all the time.
One way I deal with stress is when I feel a certain way, I just do it. It’s like, I want a hamburger, so I’m just going to eat a hamburger. I don’t want to answer your phone call right now – I’m not going to answer your phone call. Just be able to say, ‘This is how I feel. This is the way it is, deal with it.’
Eric Nam
My version of a stress dream is, really, showing up on a concert stage with a drum set and not knowing the chart.
Damien Chazelle
Taking time out each day to relax and renew is essential to living well.
Judith Hanson Lasater
I don’t want to be any kind of producer at all – hands-on or otherwise! I feel producing is a very difficult job and creates ulcers! Maybe some people would like to have a certain amount of control; not me. It’s too much stress and includes managing everybody’s egos… handling my own is enough!
Such self-referent misgivings creates stress and undermine effective use of the competencies people possess by diverting attention from how best to proceed to concern over personal failings and possible mishaps

I do love fashion. I certainly wouldn’t suffer all the stress that comes with it if I didn’t really love it. I always talk about the team of people I work with every day. They share that passion.
Marc Jacobs
I like to go for a run – it really clears my head and releases any stress from the day.

Chewing gum actually lowers your cortisol levels, the hormone responsible for stress. But chewing gum doesn’t just reduce stress, it also makes you more alert and improves your performance in memory-oriented tasks. It does so by increasing the blood flow to your brain and alerting your senses.
Travis Bradberry
How do humans treat one another under the stress of a changing world? Do we fight and compete? Or, do we cooperate and work together as a family in this world to get through these changes? This is the question we are asking ourselves today.
Gregg Braden
Yoga is great for easing my back pain. It also helps me keep stress at bay, which is something I can suffer from.
Dervla Kirwan
One of the best things in the gospel of Jesus is the stress it lays on small things. It ascribes more value to quality than to quantity; it teaches that God does not ask how much we do, but how we do it.
James Freeman Clarke
I am a trained hypnotherapist, yes, but it’s more like a guided meditation. Most of the people I take under struggle with stress in their lives and have unbalanced sleeping patterns, so what I do enables my patients to regain energy and peacefulness on a subconscious level which affects their conscious mind.
Tanit Phoenix
Exercise freaks…are the ones putting stress on the health care system.

It is how people respond to stress that determines whether they will profit from misfortune or be miserable.
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
And so, too, I speak of love: he who is held by it is held by the strongest of bonds, and yet the stress is pleasant. Moreover, he can sweetly bear all that happens to him. When one has found this bond, he looks for no other.
Meister Eckhart
I think especially as women we nned to recognize that feeling pressure is completely selfimposed.
Arianna Huffington
Stress makes us prone to tunnel vision, less likely to take in the information we need. Anxiety makes us more risk-averse than we would be regularly and more deferential.
Noreena Hertz
Don’t be stressed, express
Michelle Chang
Stress is the result of not listening to your heart. If you ignore it for too long, and surrender your power to someone else, your chest will explode with panic. I take plenty of time for me.
Jason Mraz
Perhaps losing integrity with yourself is the greatest stress of all, far more hurtful to us than competition, time pressure, or lack of respect. Our vitality is rooted in our integrity. When we do not live in one piece, our life force becomes divided. Becoming separated from our authentic values may weaken us.
Rachel Naomi Remen
I suppress stress to the point where it will force its way through my skin in the form of a large angry pimple because that’s the only channel it has.
Jane Fallon
I don’t think I would want my children to enter into my profession. There’s a lot of stress and so much competition. There are easier things you can do with your life.
If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there’d be a shortage of fishing poles.
Doug Larson
There is more to life than increasing its speed.
Mahatma Gandhi
‘Diversity’ is a wonderfully seductive word. It stresses differences rather than commonalities. Diverse people worldwide are mostly engaged in hating each other – that is, when they are not killing each other. A ‘diverse,’ peaceful or stable society is against most historical precedent.
Richard Lamm
The gigantic challenge is the magnitude of the individual differences in the optimal set point for “good stress.” For one person, it’s doing something risky with your bishop in a chess game; for someone else, it’s becoming a mercenary in Yemen.
Robert M. Sapolsky
Meditation is the process of quieting one’s mind, and letting go of the worries and stress of life.
Tim McCarthy
There must be quite a few things that a hot bath won’t cure, but I don’t know many of them.

Jill Wagner
I come from a really lovely, really smart family where the only stress was money and employment.
Paul Schneider
Worry and stress is one of the most unhealthiest things. They say that cancer and sickness comes from that, so you know I do my best. There are times that I do feel very stressed, but I do my best to keep it away and get plenty of rest.
Carmen Electra
I mean, they call it Stockholm Syndrome and post traumatic stress disorder. And, you know, I had no free will. I had virtually no free will until I was separated from them for about two weeks.

Judy Sheindlin
Even bipolar vampires needed sleep from time to time, and he was well past his recommended safe dosage of stress.
Rachel Caine
Naps are the key to relieving stress. When you are working on two hours of sleep, the fact that cheese comes on something when you ordered it with no cheese is enough to send you crying under the covers for an hour.
Keri Russell
You don’t know what people are really like until they’re under a lot of stress.

Peter Sagal
Brain cells create ideas. Stress kills brain cells. Stress is not a good idea

John Delaney
Never let stress shape your strategy. Most women think better after a brisk walk, a light meal, a massage and a nap.
Barbara Taylor Bradford
The best anti-aging advice I’ve ever received? Drink a lot of water and have a plant-based diet. I also do mindful meditation with my daughter every day. It takes ten minutes. I think reducing stress plays a big part in anti-aging.
Carolyn Murphy
We are blessed with a magnificent and miraculous world ocean on this planet. But we are also stressing it in ways that we are not even close to bringing under control.

Books have literally powered most of my life. Whether as a stress relief when doing hard things or as vacation fodder, they are a constant and important part of my life.
Harper Reed
We talk a lot on ‘Biggest Loser’ about how fitness is a natural antidepressant, how it burns off stress. What I like about running is that it gives me time alone. I’m always busy, with people at work, with my kids. I love getting out for a run by myself and just listening to my music.
Alison Sweeney
I love yoga because not only is it a workout for your body, but also your breathing, which helps release a lot of stress. It really prepares you for the day.

Because I could dance, my folks went through hell so I could be in movies. But I didn’t dance in pictures. I cried! At one point I had polio, which I believe was a result of the stress I felt in the studios.
David Holt
The higher your energy level, the more efficient your body The more efficient your body, the better you feel and the more you will use your talent to produce outstanding results.
Tony Robbins
Anyone who wishes to combine domestic responsibilities and paid employment with the least stress and most enjoyment might start by pondering this paradox: the first step to better functioning is to stop blaming herself for not functioning well enough.
Faye J Crosby
The response to stress is not less time in God’s Word, but more.
Dillon Burroughs
In 2004, results from a study that I worked on with colleagues at the University of California, San Francisco, linked chronic stress to shortening of telomeres.
Elizabeth Blackburn
Traditional technical interviews are terrible for everyone. They’re a bad way for companies to evaluate candidates. They’re a bad way for candidates to evaluate companies. They waste time and generate stress on both sides.
Jon Evans
The money is what made me miserable. I want to be free of that stress.
Ricky Williams
While positive mental states may be associated with less stress and more resilience to infection, positive well-being might also be accompanied by a healthy lifestyle.
Michael Greger
I think the stress of having to continue to fight the fight day in and day out, whatever it is, that which keeps you driving. You can get to a place where you no longer want to do that.

Carl Sandburg
Exercise is more important than diet for me because it’s a twofer. It keeps me in good physical shape, and it relieves stress. And when you’re a representative of the public, there’s never a shortage of things to do.
Aaron Schock
It is astounding how much the immune system is strengthened by reducing daily mental stress levels with either visualization or meditation. The other great tonic for the immune system is love—loving ourselves as well as others.
Bernie Siegel
It’s too much of a responsibility, too much stress, and to do justice to Sri in my first film as a director would be really tough. We can’t separate our personal equation and become professionals on the sets. So no, I’m not directing Sri in my first film.
Boney Kapoor

Mehdi Hasan
Activating oxygen can produce compounds called radicals that put oxidative stress on cells. Such stress could ultimately lead to cancer and other diseases.
John Simon
My mom has passed down that you can be chic and look beautiful, and you don’t have to break the bank. I grew up like that. She also taught me I don’t have to stress all the time. She’s always been a go-with-the-flow type of woman; that’s how she raised us, and I find that’s how I’m raising my little girls now.
Ayesha Curry
Nothing is miserable unless you think it so; and on the other hand, nothing brings happiness unless you are content with it.
It was really an easy decision for me to be a part of the Lakers. It’s priceless. It is one of the few places where I truly get lost in the joy of the moment of that game. All of the stresses and all the responsibilities are gone.
Patrick Soon-Shiong
Go after what it is that creates meaning in your life and then trust yourself to handle the stress that follows.

Julia Fox
Complete freedom from stress is death
Hans Selye
I wrote ‘The Spy Who Came in from the Cold’ at the age of 30 under intense, unshared personal stress and in extreme privacy. As an intelligence officer in the guise of a junior diplomat at the British Embassy in Bonn, I was a secret to my colleagues, and much of the time to myself.
John le Carre
Some people are so used to experiencing stress that they don’t remember what life was like without it.
Andrew J. Bernstein
What happens when we’re willing to feel bad is that, sure enough, we often feel bad – but without the stress of futile avoidance. Emotional discomfort, when accepted, rises, crests, and falls in a series of waves. Each wave washes parts of us away and deposits treasures we never imagined.
Martha Beck
Be careful in your relations with the government; for they draw no man close to themselves except for their own interests. They appear as friends when it is to their advantage, but they do not stand by a man in his time of stress.
The backlash to [Sarah] Palin`s comments was swift, with veterans and veterans` groups criticizing the apparent politicization of post-traumatic stress disorder.
Chris Hayes
I like to be alone so I can write. But focus can hurt you. I don’t want to be some stress casualty in early middle age.
James Ellroy
Sometimes it can get overburdened with nuance – the actors find all sorts of different spins on the lines that can lose simplicity and directness. They all become fond of their extra stresses and the audience are going, “Just give me the line simply, what did you mean?” You have to ward against that.
Gregory Doran
Okay, I’m dreaming. Hallucinating. Brought on by stress. I had a hard day today and this is my mind trying to protect itself from…from stuff. Lots of stuff. (Geary) (Arik, Trieg, and ZT stare at Geary.) Oh, like I’m any less sane than the three of you just because I talk to myself. (Geary)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
I wrote my thesis on the benefits of war and very near got thrown out of college. But I can show you where the greatest advancement of mankind comes under stress and strain, not comfort.

Marc Almond
It is important to stress: Africa is also a victim of the September 11 attacks.
Omar Bongo
It’s important to stress what I didn’t find. I did not prove that homosexuality is genetic, or find a genetic cause for being gay. I didn’t show that gay men are born that way, the most common mistake people make in interpreting my work. Nor did I locate a gay center in the brain.
Simon LeVay
Stress isn’t only a joy stealer. The way we respond to it can be sin.
Ann Voskamp
All around us people are suffering from stress, fear, sorrow, pain, and fear of future suffering, especially death. None of these are natural to us, because we are eternal spirit souls. Humanity has been controlled through the fear of death.
Terry Cole-Whittaker
For some reason people say such negative things about having a baby – you won’t sleep, the stress, the crying. Nonsense. It’s a total joy so cherish every second.
James Mullinger
Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.
Jim Rohn
It has always seemed strange to me that in our endless discussions about education so little stress is laid on the pleasure of becoming an educated person, the enormous interest it adds to life. To be able to be caught up into the world of thought-that is to be educated.
Edith Hamilton
I believe in spending money to make your home the perfect sanctuary away from work and the stress of everyday life.
Hilary Farr
I’ve learned over the years that if you start thinking about the race, it stresses you out a little bit. I just try to relax and think about video games, what I’m gonna do after the race, what I’m gonna do just to chill. Stuff like that to relax a little before the race.
Usain Bolt
As a woman, sometimes we stress on always being of the moment, and that is a lot of pressure, especially for young girls.
Coco Rocha
When I look back on all these worries, I remember the story of the old man who said on his deathbed that he had had a lot of trouble in his life, most of which had never happened
Winston Churchill
I’d never experienced stress before I did stand-up, and it was a massive shock to my system, this thing of waking up, and the nerves of, ‘You’re on stage tonight.’
Johnny Vegas
You have to know your triggers for stress and then have rituals for combating them.
Gabrielle Bernstein
If you’re doing your best, you won’t have any time to worry about failure.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
If I can center down and strengthen the core of who I am, and the core of who I am is my relationship with God, then that helps me maintain peace deep down. If I can maintain a healthy spiritual core, I think that’s enormous for helping the stress.
Anne Graham Lotz
It really stresses me out to think about what other people think about me.
Frankie Ballard
The second you change the way you look at a situation, your stress levels drop.
Gabrielle Bernstein
No one prepared me for the stress and insanity of a week leading up to a movie. Years and years of work come down to three days.
Evan Daugherty
I believe firmly in the efficacy of religion, in its powerful influence on a person’s whole life. It helps immeasurably to meet the storms and stress of life and keep you attuned to the Divine inspiration. Without inspiration, we would perish.
Walt Disney
When I get stressed out my de-stress default is – not cat videos – but I just watch his surrogates. They’re so entertaining. It’s like escapees from the Nordstrom cosmetics counter.
Kathleen Hanna
I would say that nerds, as a rule, are much more sexually active than the average person. There’s a lot of anxiety and stress in the nerd brain, so sex is good for that.
Chris Hardwick
In moments of great stress, every life form that exists gives out a tiny subliminal signal.
Douglas Adams
I think depression creates in me an urgent need to write, but I also believe that daily stress, and even the positive ‘stress’ of intense happiness, can compel me to express myself through the written word.
Francesca Lia Block
I never stop running. I’m not one of the weenies who drop out just because the electoral college votes. I’m still in the race. I’m an extremely corrupt candidate and I stress that in case anybody in our reading audience is interested in sending me money.
Dave Barry
It’s funny, because even though on a drama like ‘Picket Fences’ those long monologues would stress me out, doing special effects where there’s a green screen and there’s nobody there to to react to and you have to recite all this dialogue, it’s so much more difficult.
Holly Marie Combs
I have more zits now than I did as a teenager. Stress zits.
Tiffani Thiessen
I have a huge amount of stress, but I believe stress can be a positive thing too.
Raheem Devaughn
In a moment of stress, funding may go to systemically-important firms, which could pull funding away from firms not making the cut.
Charles Dallara
I love leaving the door open to good ideas. I love the collaborative swirl. I get charged by problem-solving, usually under some kind of stress – the sun is going down, and we have eight minutes, and we have to solve it. Great things come out of it.
Ron Howard
If you are anxious, if you doubt yourself, if you stress over everything, it ultimately means you really care about what you do.
Amy Macdonald
Letting go helps us to to live in a more peaceful state of mind and helps restore our balance. It allows others to be responsible for themselves and for us to take our hands off situations that do not belong to us. This frees us from unnecessary stress.
Melody Beattie
Stress reduction, greater physical health, a deeper sense of spirit, more creativity, a sense of play, even a safer life-these are the rewards that await a family then it invites more nature into children’s lives.
Richard Louv
There definitely was a time when I was pretty obsessed with my weight, but I’m better off not stressing about my body all the time.
Hilary Duff
I have acute myeloid leukemia, an aggressive type of cancer. The typical prognosis is 3-6 months to live, but I would like to stress that is for a patient who is not receiving treatment.
Craig Sager
Less mess, less stress. That’s my rule! If you don’t stay on top of decluttering, it can get out of control. I maintain as much as possible. I’ll do seasonal edits and decide what we can toss or donate. If we don’t love it, need it or haven’t used it in the past year, it’s gone.
Molly Sims
I’m conscious of the way I live and do things every day that nourish my body. I eat well, I work out, I try to manage stress, I get a good sleep in, and together, that does wonders.
Ella Woodward
George was adamant his sexuality should be kept under wraps, which created a wholly unwelcome extra level of stress for him to manage.
Andrew Ridgeley
Sleep is my great indulgence, and I get eight hours every night. Being chronically overtired raises stress levels in a bad way and is responsible for a lot of depressive breaks.
Andrew Solomon
What I value most about Pastor Wright is not his day-to-day political advice. He’s much more of a sounding board for me to make sure that I am speaking as truthfully about what I believe as possible and that I’m not losing myself in some of the hype and hoopla and stress that’s involved in national politics.
Barack Obama
Just losing a couple pounds takes so much stress off your joints. Your body feels better.
Larry Fitzgerald
When we won the league championship, all the married guys on the club had to thank their wives for putting up with all the stress and strain all season. I had to thank all the single broads in New York.
Joe Namath
Stress eating is huge – I did a lot during lockdown, and I think that’s half the battle. We give ourselves such a hard time, our internal voice is so aggressive and we need to start being kinder to ourselves.
Davina McCall
I can’t stress too much how much Ry Cooder was an influence on me. Having one of the most respected musicians around like my singing really gave me the confidence to do it.
Harry Dean Stanton
To achieve great things, two things are needed; a plan, and not quite enough time.
Leonard Bernstein
When you choose to view your stress response as helpful, you create the biology of courage.
Kelly McGonigal
Sometimes we need to let go of things in our lives to make room for better things. Stress less and live more. Don’t waste your energy, when you have the choice to be happy.
Brian Tracy
Stress is something that’s created in the mind, basically. It’s how we look at things. So ovr greatest defense against stress is the ability to change ovr minds; to change ovr thinking.
Goldie Hawn
I think I did a good job of compartmentalizing my life. It’s crazy to say it, but even if football was this dangerous thing, it was a place where I could focus all my energy. I’m sure it’s not the healthiest thing to direct stress from football into football, but that’s basically what I did.
Chris Borland
Because sloths’ metabolisms are so slow, they don’t exhibit many external signs of stress and it can be hard to determine their mood.
Ann Burton
I truly cannot imagine men with men, women with women, doing what they were not physically created to do, without abnormal stress and misbehavior.
Jerry Falwell
Around the year 2000, countries such as France, the Netherlands and the US were already five times as wealthy as in 1930. Yet nowadays our biggest challenges are not leisure and boredom, but stress and uncertainty.
Rutger Bregman
Especially in a very secular world, we should always stress what is common in the Christian religion.
Angela Merkel
It makes no sense to worry about things you have no control over because there’s nothing you can do about them, and why worry about things you do control? The activity of worrying keeps you immobilized.
Wayne Dyer
A typical complaint of married women with children is that their job stress tired them out so that they have little quality emotion and energy left for their children, much less their husbands.
Laura Schlessinger
There is a growing subculture of barefoot runners, people who got rid of their shoes. And what they have found uniformly is you get rid of the shoes, you get rid of the stress, you get rid of the injuries and the ailments.
Christopher McDougall
For a couple with young children, divorce seldom comes as a “solution” to stress, only as a way to end one form of pain and accept another.
Fred Rogers
People generally report higher levels of stress, depression, and tension after watching TV. It seems that TV’s main virtue is that it occupies the mind undemandingly.
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
I try to remind myself that nothing is permanent. The chaos and the stress of life won’t last forever. Eventually, it will go away and I will once again be left with nothing but happiness.
Haley Pullos
I stress the uniqueness of the Australian landscape and its metaphysical and mythic content.
Arthur Boyd
Meditation is a simple yet powerful tool that takes us to a state of profound relaxation that dissolves fatigue and the accumulated stress that accelerates the aging process.
Deepak Chopra
The advantages of having decisions made by groups are often lost because of powerful psychological pressures that arise when the members work closely together, share the same set of values and, above all, face a crisis situation that puts everyone under intense stress
Irving Janis
I must stress here the point that I appreciate clarity, order, meaning, structure, rationality: they are necessary to whatever provisional stability we have, and they can be the agents of gradual and successful change.
A. R. Ammons
Levity is the lubricant of a crisis. We resort to jokes, pranks and good natured kidding to relieve tension, stress and boredom.
Wally Schirra
Nothing relieves stress like setting things on fire.
Chris Cannon
‘The New Black Yoga’ originally was born from a film that I had made prior called ‘Black Yoga.’ And I was living in Berlin at the time, dealing with a lot of anxiety and stress around the project that I was working on, which is not an abnormal thing for me.
Rashid Johnson
If I upset you, don’t stress. Never forget
That God isn’t finished with me yet.
I feel His hand on my brain…
When I write rhymes, I go blind and let the Lord do His thang.
Tupac Shakur
Whilst accidents and assaults injure and kill people quickly and spectacularly, bullying and consequent prolonged negative stress injure and kill people slowly and secretively. The outcome, though, is the same.
Tim Field
‘Stress’ was the catch-all every pamper-pedlar I spoke to used to explain why healthy women feel the need to be regularly patted, petted and preened into a state of babyish beatification.
Julie Burchill
The next time you find yourself in an argument, rather than defend your position, see if you can see the other point of view first.
Richard Carlson
What fascinates me about London is its multi-ethnicity, the coexistence of cultures and religions, but I do not see myself living here for very long. It’s too big, too much stress, too much of a metropolis.
Alvaro Morata
Stress is caused by our resistance to what already is. Even our difficulties we need to accept. My greatest wish is to do God’s will.
Dorothy Maclean
Generally, we have competed with ourselves… because I feel that if I compete against somebody, it causes stress. I don’t want the process of growth to be stressful.
Dilip Shanghvi
Steve Chandler and Duane Black present an approach to management that promises to lower your stress level, increase your happiness and allow everyone in your organization to be more creative and productive.
Rolf Dobelli
Ironically enough, the only people who can hold up indefinitely under the stress of modern war are psychotics. Individual insanity is immune to the consequences of collective insanity.
Aldous Huxley
I don’t know if it’s a male thing, but I’ve always been interested in how people respond to the stresses and dangers of war, how they react under fire. In the extremity of war, character is revealed.
George Packer
If you are rigorous in your own R&D in whatever your area is, you do your own testing, and you really stress-test the thing that you do, I think that gives you a tremendous amount of inner fortitude when you come up against the monolith.
Brian Koppelman
At work you worry over the family at home. At home you fret over work left undone. Behold the working woman’s stress.
Elaine A. Cannon
Stress, in addition to being itself, was also the cause of itself, and the result of itself.
Hans Selye
Yoga reduced my stress and bodily tension. It allowed me to bring my body back into balance, to emerge from my fertility struggle with my sense of self esteem and self worth intact, and to forge a stronger bond with my husband.
Brenda Strong
It’s known that stress gives rise to disease. It’s also known that many diseases, especially stress-related diseases, can be cured by placebos – pills that have no medicinal effect, but people think they do, and so they do.
Richard Dawkins
Something I can’t stress enough is the massive importance of work experience. It’s the only way to find out what work is really like when you’re figuring out what path to take and to get an understanding of what it takes to achieve your career ambitions.
Jameela Jamil
My stress on the truth in sexual stereotypes and on the biologic basis of sex differences is sure to cause controversy.
Camille Paglia
Stress and worry is a residual of relying on yourself and being your own god, in control of everything. Worship allows us to rely on God’s power to steer us through life.
T. D. Jakes
It’s my life’s aim to make people understand the job of an actor, what they go through, and why they are such a protected species. People see the glamour part of it. But there’s so much stress that often you don’t even pay attention to the luxuries.
Parineeti Chopra
Bipolar disorder, manic depression, depression, black dog, whatever you want to call it, is inherent in our society. It’s a product of stress and in my case over-work.
Adam Ant
Liberals tend to stress how marvelous education is, in and of itself, and also adore it as a vessel for genuine equality. (That’s me, by the way: Hell, I think we should be spending $50 billion a year to make college education free).
Rick Perlstein
If we pursue this matter further, we shall be told that the stable object is unchanging under the impact or stress of some particular external or internal variable or, perhaps, that it resists the passage of time.
Gregory Bateson
The number of stressors has multiplied exponentially: traffic, money, success, work/life balance, the economy, the environment, parenting, family conflict, relationships, disease. As the nature of human life has become far more complicated, our ancient stress response hasn’t been able to keep up.
Andrew Bernstein
There is no actual stress or anxiety in the world, your thoughts create these false beliefs.
Wayne Dyer
I am the type to receive stress if I am not working.
It’s the pressure of live TV. I also have the added stress of keeping my dental career in check because I am going to be out of the office on Wednesdays and flying back home on Thursdays.
Britt Baker
I’m 20 years old. I like to party as much as anyone my age. Going clubbing is my way of relaxing or releasing a lot of stress. I don’t feel that I should have to justify that part of my life. I don’t know that I’m necessarily an addict.
Lindsay Lohan
If you’re worried about putting food on the table or putting a roof over your head, that stress is definitely will contribute to unhappiness, but once you have your basic needs met then incremental money.
Tony Hsieh
I had post-traumatic stress from ‘Drag Race’ a little bit.
Courtney Act
A feature film is an expansion of budget, stress, story, hours, time, workload, everything.
Taika Waititi
The older I get, the more vegetables I eat. I can’t stress that more. Eating healthy really affects my work. You not only need to be physically prepared, but mentally and spiritually.
James Badge Dale
Stress comes from within; it is your reaction to circumstances, not the circumstances themselves.
Brian Tracy
Banks should decide on dividend increases and share buybacks after receiving the results of stress tests, when they know how much capital regulators wish them to hold.
James P. Gorman
I think I had a stress fracture before I broke my foot, and I think that was absolutely because I was not getting enough nutrients.
Adam Rippon
I feel like when you successful, it’s more stress ’cause it’s more stuff you dealin’ with.
It’s your job to find a release and an outlet for the stress and the feelings. Never forget: the crazy stays at home.
Ryan Holiday
I try to write my own music. It’s a good way of de-stressing.
Alexandra Daddario
The only liberty an inferior man really cherishes is the liberty to quit work, stretch out in the sun, and scratch himself.
H. L. Mencken
No construction stiff working overtime takes more stress and straining than we did just to stay high.
Gus Van Sant
I think we all do craft a certain self-image. I guess the degree that our internal self-image matches the image we project, we perhaps feel really uncomfortable in the world when there is a difference. That can cause a lot of stress or bad feelings about ourselves.
George Harrar
I have read many, many of these first-time published efforts and often, even though some are absolutely at pro levels of production, and have very costly printing and presentation, they lack a purpose, they merely emulate successful comics that already exist… I can’t stress this enough. Have something to say.
Gail Simone
Our stresses, anxieties, pains, and problems arise because we do not see the world, others, or even ourselves as worthy of love
Prem Prakash
Dear God, I give this time of quiet to You. Please dissolve my thoughts of stress and fear And deliver me to the inner place Where all is peace and love. Amen.
Marianne Williamson
Now is the time to give me roses, not to keep them for my grave to come. Give them to me while my heart beats, give them today while my heart yearns for jubilee. Now is the time.
Mzwakhe Mbuli
Relationships and the stress of the world going down, it puts a lot of stress on people, you know financially.
Rick Springfield
Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.
Benjamin Franklin
Most people, in committing a suicidal act, are just as muddled as when they do anything important under emotional stress. Carefully planned acts of suicide are as rare as carefully planned acts of homicide.
Erwin Stengel
In many cases, water stress is more about politics, economics, behaviour and governance than absolute water scarcity. Better planning is needed, to allocate water where societal need is greatest, and to allow trade-offs between alternative uses.
Ian Goldin
To understand Afghanistan, you have to face the stress the average Afghan deals with.
Hyder Akbar
Life gets weird enough without having to worry about whether you are covered for this or have to have a deductible for that, so the less stress when you are in need, the better.
Finn Wolfhard
I have always promised myself and my wife that when I don’t enjoy it anymore, or I can’t handle the stress and the pressure that comes with having such a high-profile and top job – or my energy levels starts to fail me, or my enthusiasm starts to be dented – I won’t prolong my career longer than I feel I should.
Roy Hodgson
The golf swing is a violent swing. You twist, and your spine is under continual stress when you’re making a golf swing. Your neck, your spine, your hands, your knees, everything.
Tom Watson
Our humanist attitude should therefore throughout be to stress what we all have in common with each other and relegate quarrelsome religion to the private domain where it can do [less] harm.
Hermann Bondi
I write about what’s on my mind. It’s like a stress reliever.
Lauren Alaina
I’m taking better care of myself by eating healthy, exercising and doing my best to keep my stress level down as well as role modeling good habits for my kids.
Monica Potter
You know being an actor you have to deal with a lot of criticism which is not easy, and that leads to stress. So, you have to train your mind to deal with it.
Neha Sharma
Fortunately, our immune system can be improved and empowered to such a point that not only can the harmful microbes be halted and the chemicals detoxified, but also a “stress defense shield” may be built up, which can even drive off the effects of daily stress.
David Wolfe
I’m someone who’s quite anxious and stresses out a lot and gives the impression that I’m laid back.
Adeel Akhtar
If I jump out of bed without hugging my husband, that creates stress between us.
Gabrielle Bernstein
The only thing that I haven’t done is perform brain surgery on myself. I’ve been very, very lucky. I’ve spared Shakespeare undue stress by not doing that.
Sylvester Stallone
The only people I am aware of who don’t have troubles are gathered in peaceful, little neighborhoods. There is never a care, never a moment of stress and never an obstacle to ruin a day. All is calm. All is serene. Most towns have at least one such worry-free zone. We call them cemeteries.
Steve Goodier
Panic is not an effective long-term organizing strategy.
There’s such a thing as good stress and bad stress. Bad stress is when somebody else stresses you out, and good stress is when you stress yourself out over something you want to accomplish, which makes you want to perfect it.
Denzel Curry
The press needs stories constantly. No need to bleed, just feed. Branding will keep you standing… Get press not stress.
Mark Kostabi
For those with health conditions like diabetes, cancer, and heart disease, the rising cost of lifesaving medications is straining budgets, fueling undue stress, and forcing them to make difficult decisions.
Abigail Spanberger
It is not stress that kills us. It is effective adaptation to stress that allows us to live.
George Vaillant
Jesus Himself stresses that only those who grant forgiveness will receive it.
David Jeremiah
This idea that some kids have now in some communities that if they haven’t filled out their college resumes by the time they’re 12, they are going to fail in life, it’s a lot of stress on kids.
David Sheff
Combat stress isn’t the only problem for soldiers isolated in Iraq – there are family issues, re-integration issues when soldiers go home on leave, loneliness.
John Sandford
I don’t believe athletes should be role models. . . . We’re a one-shot deal, one in a million, so we should be the least likely role models. . . . I think one of the problems in society today is that we don’t stress education enough, because we glorify athletes, actors and actresses.
Charles Barkley
Constantly scanning the world for the negative comes with a great cost. It undercuts our creativity, raises our stress levels, and lowers our motivation and ability to accomplish goals.
Shawn Achor
I believe that true success in bodybuilding nutrition comes from some variety in diet. It allows for more creativity, enables a bodybuilder to enjoy diversity, and causes less stress emotionally and mentally compared to a very basic diet for which a bodybuilder will lose enthusiasm for over time.
Robert Cheeke
It’s just a blessing from above. I can’t stress that enough, because I don’t feel like it’s anything that I’ve done. For me to say, ‘Well, it’s because of this, this and that is why I’ve been able to play,’ it’s just a lie. I couldn’t tell you why.
D’Brickashaw Ferguson
You can do a lot worse than spend an hour a week singing. We should prescribe choirs on the NHS for anxiety and stress.
Mel Giedroyc
Virtual simulations allow post-traumatic stress disorder sufferers to re-experience the events that traumatized them, and then slowly desensitize themselves to their impact through repeated recreations involving not just sight and sound but even smell.
Douglas Rushkoff
Stress is not…a badge of courage
Kris Carr
The healthy being craves an occasional wildness, a jolt from normality, a sharpening of the edge of appetite, his own little festival of Saturnalia, a brief excursion from his way of life.
Robert Morrison MacIver
Aside from being a fighter, I am a relaxed person. It is a lifestyle thing for me. I don’t stress too much.
Urijah Faber
I’ve always felt that when you use too many products or try too many new things, you’re just piling a lot of unnatural, unnecessary stress on your face. I try to keep it simple.
Amber Rose
There’s no way to escape the culture that has evolved, from which we ourselves have evolved. Naturally, we stress it, break it up, reassemble it to suit our own needs. But it is there – a source of vital strength.
Wole Soyinka
Stress is part of your career. You have to accept it and deal with it because there is a lot of emotion in tennis.
Stan Wawrinka
When you’re working with film and you hear that mag starting to roll and you know that there’s thousands of dollars just spinning around, it’s another stress element, which I don’t enjoy at all.
Fredrik Bond
I don’t like stress because stress stresses me out.
Jason Dufner
I cannot stress enough that the answer to a lot of your life’s questions is often in someone else’s face. Try putting your iPhones down every once in a while and look at people’s faces.
Ira Glass
You’re not insensitive or indifferent, but you’re also not vulnerable to the upheavals that cause emotional stress because you can buffer that… So that’s the result of meditation; you could call that emotional balance.
Matthieu Ricard
To me the early childhood story is an ecumenical one. You take poverty seriously. You take seriously maternal depression. You take seriously children under stress and you take seriously the effects of extended hours participation in poor quality care. Those are the facts I begin with.
Robert Manne
I like that they call it an airplane cabin. A cabin is where you go to get away from stress. The cabin is a respite from the terminals on either end of the flight where noise bombards you as soon as you walk through the gate.
Regina Brett
I don’t like to feel like I’m in a club when I’m in my car and I turn on the radio. Anything that ceases to be a song and just sounds like house music kind of stresses me out.
Taylor Swift
We try to stress the little things because little things lead to big things.
Steve Alford
Stress is the negative whirlwind of emotions that gets imposed on top of our stimulation and engagement.
Andrew J. Bernstein
I’m a project guy, but when my list of things to do gets too long or involved, it can stress me out to the point of catatonia. So I focus on the small stuff first and keep the larger picture as motivation – but not so close that it overwhelms.
Michael Lomenda
In the very near future, and I stress this important point, it will no longer be war that is the continuation of politics by other means, it will be what I have dubbed ‘the integral accident’ that is the continuation of politics by other means.
Paul Virilio
The military and the Marine Corps prepared me to be numb to the stress.
Lacey Evans
Every day, I get up to hit the gym; the schedule is such that it gives me the requisite energy to last the entire day. I stress on cardiovascular exercises, and the workout is programmed with my sporting schedule. Most of the fitness schedule is based on what I require for my upcoming matches.
Gautam Gambhir
The great thing was that both K-Ci and JoJo told me to not make an R&B track that was reminiscent of radio hit records. ‘Make a Gang Starr track and we’ll write our lyrics to that,’ they told me. They couldn’t stress it enough.
DJ Premier
Everyone has stress. A good run may not erase it, but it can reduce the effect and allow runners to gain control.
Jeff Galloway
Wake up, life does get tough. No need to stress, holds you back too much.
Kid Cudi
I wanted a child, and there was no way I could get pregnant under the stress of 18-hour work days and live TV. When you’re somebody who’s used to making a decision about what they want to do and getting it and achieving it, when your body fails you, it’s a whole other experience.
Kara DioGuardi
I don’t think I know enough about acting to direct. You need to be a slight megalomaniac, not where you want to take over the world, but where you want to make every single decision and the buck stops with you. It’s an awful lot of stress.
Matthew Goode
Stress will either drive you crazy or drive you to your knees. It depends on who is in control of your life.
Mark Hart
I suggest people simply start off meditation by practicing twice a day for 5 – 10 minutes, and explore what it’s like to meditate. The stress reduction and mental peace starts to become a highly desirable state. After all, it’s great to let go of the worries of life!
Tim McCarthy
Stress is a form of suffering. Look at your body and see what stress does to the body and its functions – what it does to the heart, the circulation, the immune system, the digestive function, the liver.
Eckhart Tolle
I’ve been one of those people that hold on to a little bit more stress than others. People take certain situations a little bit differently.
Jason Day
The only pressure I’m under is the pressure I’ve put on myself.
Mark Messier
The state owned monopolies are among the greatest millstones round the neck of the economy. Liberals must stress at all times the virtues of the market, not only for efficiency but to enable the widest possible choice. Much of what Mrs Thatcher and Sir Keith Joseph say and do is in the mainstream of liberal philosophy.
Jo Grimond
Most of the stress people experience comes from inappropriately managed commitments they make or accept.
David Allen
Once you accept, truly accept, that stuff will happen to you and there is nothing you can do about it, stress miraculously leaves your life.
Srikumar Rao
I always wanted to see my parents without any stress and accordingly knocked every audition for an opportunity.
Vijay Deverakonda
A body may well lay too little as too much stress upon a dream; but the less he heed them the better.
Roger L’Estrange
Those who take lightly promises they make to those they love are people who find little lasting satisfaction in life. This is not an easy time in which to live. That does not mean that it has to be a difficult time to love, but it does mean that you will find unusual stresses upon your lives and your relationship.
Brandon Sanderson
I stress out so much about the red carpet and interviews and pictures, and, you know, not getting my skirt tucked in my knickers.
Maisie Williams
I survived my childhood by birthing many separate identities to stand in for one another in times of great stress and fear.
Roseanne Barr
We’re all going to face extreme stress in our lives, there’s no one who is going to escape that. That’s the one thing, rich or poor, I don’t care who you are, you’re going to lose.
Tony Robbins
Think of how much we stress about living up to our “potential,” and how it creates anxiety and terror in people; in short, stops them from living their life as fully as they might out of fear and self-loathing.
Emily Susan Rapp
My childhood was surrounded by trouble, illness, and my dad’s alcoholism, but as I said, we just didn’t have the time to be impressed by all those misfortunes. I have an idea that the Irish possess a built-in don’t-give-a-damn that helps them through all the stress.
James Cagney
Well, you know, a lot of people look at the negative things, the things that they did wrong and – which I do. But I like to stress on the things I did right, because there are certain things that I like to look at from a positive standpoint that are just positive reinforcement.
Tiger Woods
I notice that if there are some times I’ve been stressed, because I’m human and stress about things, that affects your kids. So you have to make sure you’re a happy mom so they can be happy.
Britney Spears
Running long offers a dress rehearsal. Running long teaches the stress of lifting feet 5,000 times per hour. Running long builds confidence.
Hal Higdon
I think that a lot of people are in love with stress. It’s the dirty little secret of Western civilization. People often mistake stress for fuel…. to me, stress is just another bad drug that I don’t want to do.
Jerry Stahl
Our brains are very, very good at self-delusion. What happens is, it releases the stress hormone cortisol in the brain, which leads to foggy thinking, so you’re not even able to judge well whether you’re working well or not.
Daniel Levitin
No matter how much you train, you can’t replicate the stresses that the body takes when it’s in a competitive environment.
Johanna Konta
One thing that stress does is make us ungenerous, so we constrict, we look after our own. We get solipsistic and go into our own narcissistic spiral. What this taught me is that there is a way of dealing with stress that is much more welcoming and open and hospitable to the world.
Kyo Maclear
Non-comprehenders are often distressed. Not you, though-because with good humor you’re blessed. After all, your thoughts went like this, I dare say: It was none but the Lord who made us that way.
Albert Einstein
Change – even change meant to improve our lives – creates stress. We can get comfortable with our problems.
David Allen
If you feel overwhelmed, you may be trying to achieve too much at once. Step back and look at your goals. If you’re doing too much, it’s time to reprioritize.
Lauren Mackler

Sandy Gallin
I love inspiring people, and I love making good music, but I don’t stress about it. I don’t think I’m ever going to win a Grammy, and I’m OK with that.
Selena Gomez
So I think it’s like the night before the exam. Obviously, you stress. But when you have done your job well, then you need to go down, relax and enjoy.

I guess I don’t really let the stress of my family weigh on my career, weigh on my options anymore, which I think we all need freedom from.

She [Sarah Palin] doesn`t quite understand the issue [post-traumatic stress disorder] and, you know, if she`s going to continue to be in this space, hopefully she can do some homework and make some policy recommendation that are relevant to fixing the problem.
Jon Soltz
No one can escape stress, but you can learn to cope with it. Practice positive thinking. . . seize control in small ways.
Adele Scheele
I am happy to be running a public sector bank. In times of stress, most people will always have an account with us, so, to the extent that it gives stability and faith for the people and because banking is a business of trust, it is a major advantage we have.
Arundhati Bhattacharya
Poseidon’s trident was also all over the place, since Peter the Great wanted to stress Russia’s sea power. I especially like the trident on top of an obelisk — what a great Egyptian/Greek mix up!
Rick Riordan
I believe that stress is a factor in any bad health.
Christopher Shays
My key to dealing with stress is simple: just stay cool and stay focused.

R. C. Sproul
A simple right or left can mean life or death,
Epic fail or nice success,
Days of pleasure or nights of stress.
As long as experiencing your optimal level of good stress doesn’t damage others, it’s hard to objectively define where normal enjoyment of stimulation becomes adrenaline junkiehood.
Robert M. Sapolsky
A lot of times, people have something that they’re afraid of. They’ve got a client that’s mad at them. They’ve got a project that’s due. And they let that stress hang over their head. I don’t let that happen.
Jocko Willink
I would suggest that excellence occurs in direct proportion to necessary suffering, but in inverse proportion to unnecessary suffering or toxic stress. Connection is the best antidote to unnecessary suffering.
Edward Hallowell
Stress means something different if it is the result of rewarding work rather than struggling to keep the family out of debt.
Julian Baggini
I’ve been thinking a lot about the speed and spectacle in today’s fashion industry, because they seem to mirror stresses in other creative fields.
Anna Wintour
Horror and the unknown or the strange are always closely connected so that it is hard to create a convincing picture of shattered natural law or cosmic alienage or ‘outsideness’ without laying stress on the emotion of fear.
H. P. Lovecraft
When you’re under stress, your immune system doesn’t work as well.
Bob McNair
Extremism. It is an almost infallible sign — a kind of death-rattle — when a human institution is forced by its members into stressing those and only those factors which are identificatory, at the expense of others which it necessarily shares with competing institutions because human beings belong to all of them.
John Brunner
The adrenaline and stress of an adventure are better than a thousand peaceful days.
Paulo Coelho
It’s hard in daily life. It’s even harder in management because it’s the stress of the moment.
Ben Horowitz
An Army is still a crowd, though a highly organized one. It is governed by the same laws, and under the stress of war is ever tending to revert to its crowd form. Our object in peace is so to train it that the reversion will become very slow.
J. F. C. Fuller
Fashion has always been a source of stress for me because I don’t know how to dress myself. I’m short-torsoed with big boobs, and I don’t really understand what a belt does. But you get on these shows, and people fit the clothing to you, and suddenly you learn, ‘Oh, I should be wearing petite jackets.’
Rachel Bloom
Money definitely doesn’t stress me out. I really don’t care about money… I probably should a little more.
Frankie Ballard
I can bat in the morning, afternoon, evening, night, on ice, desert, wherever and whenever. It is almost nirvana for me. It takes me away from the stresses of life. I think only a batsman will be able to tell you about the goose bumps he gets after hitting a perfect cover drive. I’m one of them.
Gautam Gambhir
We found if you took the dog out for 45 minutes a day and worked with it that the solitary stress hormone, cortisol, went down. But then it went right back up again because they didn’t keep doing it.
Temple Grandin
In the dictionary, next to the word stress, there is a picture of a midsize mutant stuck inside a dog crate, wondering if her destiny is to be killed or to save the world. Okay, not really. But there should be.
James Patterson
Over the years your bodies become walking autobiographies, telling friends and strangers alike of the minor and major stresses of your lives.

Terry Pratchett
I enjoy an evening stroll. It helps me to reflect and eases stress.
Blac Chyna
There is one thing I should say, and it’s important: Young Broadway singers and anybody who is an orator of any kind – lawyers who have to speak in court or pastors or anyone who has a lot of stress on their vocal cords: You should do the maintenance. You should do whatever it takes to feel fresh and good.
Julie Andrews
We need to laugh and laugh loud because this is the only way to handle stress.
Binnu Dhillon
An entrepreneur assumes the risk and is dedicated and committed to the success of whatever he or she undertakes.
Victor Kiam
All stress begins with one negative thought.
Rhonda Byrne
There was a phase when I would just loaf around, doing nothing. It had put my mom under a lot of stress. I knew her stress stemmed from her love for me, yet I never paid attention to her feelings. When it finally hit me that my idleness was taking a toll on her, I was genuinely sad and depressed.
Farhan Akhtar
When I pick up one of my children and cuddle them, all the strain and stress of life temporarily disappears. There is nothing more wonderful than motherhood and no-one will ever love you as much as a small child.
Nicola Horlick

Simone Weil

Frederick Lenz
I have discovered that in every language and every country I have visited, there are no new stories. They’re all recycled. The same stressful thoughts arise in each mind one way or another, sooner or later.
Byron Katie
We can talk and get feedback about our videos directly from some of our biggest fans. We can’t stress the importance of that connection enough.
Kian Lawley
I think people think filmmaking is fun, but I’ve never thought that. For me it’s always been a lot of work and pain and stress.

Rick Rubin
I’m miserable: that’s why I have such a bad back, because I’m endlessly stressing out about my career.

Jon Kabat-Zinn
People overestimate what they can accomplish in the near term and underestimate what they can accomplish in the long term.
David House
Stress is not a state of mind… it’s measurable and dangerous, and humans can’t seem to find their off-switch.
Robert M. Sapolsky
How well I know with what burning intensity you live. You have experienced many lives already, including several you have shared with me- full rich lives from birth to death, and you just have to have these rest periods in between.
Anais Nin
It’s hard enough to make a film without everyone saying, “Hang on, is this version as good as the one Kubrick would have made?” In peoples’ minds they’ll always think if Kubrick had done it it would be so much better. You don’t need that extra stress.
Chris Cunningham
Many of us feel stress and get overwhelmed not because we’re taking on too much, but because we’re taking on too little of what really strengthens us.

Ana Gasteyer
Painful is the stress when one cannot reproduce or convey vividly to others, however hard he tries, what he’s experienced so intensely.
Haruki Murakami
I find Jessica Jones a much more interesting character to write for than Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman is so noble and heroic, and I don’t find that as interesting as one who’s really damaged and flawed and has post-traumatic stress disorder.
Melissa Rosenberg
I think I’ve been on a path ever since I was born, a path of high stress. I put myself, my career, it was a big old juicy carrot right in front of me for all of my life.
Melissa Etheridge
I would not like to try any high stress job. Honestly, I wouldn’t like something like a PR job. I can’t diffuse situations.

Why stress tomorrow when you can stress today?

Bruce H. Lipton
Sure, we all have problems and we all have our mess, and what happens tomorrow is anyone’s guess, but there’s no need and no benefit to let yourself stress, because for one and for all… life is blessed!
Hal Elrod
I think in any relationship in this industry, there’s a stress on relationships. I think that’s reality, but in no way do I think that if a relationship is meant to be together and a marriage is meant to be together, that anything like a show or being in this industry can change that.
Evan Ross
If you don’t have ample liquidity, and it’s not durable, in times of stress, as you’re looking for liquidity, you’re forced to sell assets at declining prices, which then eats into your capital position, so it becomes this very, very negative cycle. There’s no question that liquidity is sacrosanct.
Ruth Porat
Exercise mitigates the effects of stress – and stress, we know, shortens telomeres. In fact, early studies indicate that stress reduction techniques like meditation help people maintain the length of their telomeres.
Elizabeth Blackburn
Few in these hot, dim, strenuous times are quite sane or free; choked with care like clocks full of dust, laboriously doing so much good and making so much money – or so little, they are no longer good for themselves.
John Muir
I can’t play video games because I get too nervous. It just stresses me out.

Well, much of my research over the years has been on stress, and the adverse effects of stress on the health of the central nervous system. All things considered, I’ve been astonishingly unhelped by my own research.

Shelby Steele
I love movies, I love being a part of them, and this is the one occupation I love living and playing in and stressing myself out over.
Drew Barrymore
We need adventure, we need meaning, we need identity. We need love. Someone who has seen us through loving eyes has awakened us from the ranks of the formerly dead. Most people bear the terminal stress of walking the world unseen, a mere number or cog in a lifeless machine.
Marianne Williamson
We have this amazing ability to turn on the exactly same stress response worrying about a mortgage that a zebra does when it’s sprinting away from a lion.
Robert Sapolsky
There’s always the pressure to win. That never goes away, but being a main event, I want to go out there and put on a great show for the fans and live up to being a main event. That doesn’t really stress me out or pressure me anymore. The fight is enough.
Dustin Poirier
Doing something that is productive is a great way to alleviate emotional stress. Get your mind doing something that is productive.
Ziggy Marley
Like anyone, I stress and get hard on myself from time to time, but it’s minute compared to the pressure I used to put on myself to perform and succeed. To my kids’ credit, they’ve probably helped me the most here: I’m more worried about what they’re doing than what I’m doing!
Amanda Beard
I voted against H.R. 4293, the Stress Test Improvement Act of 2017, which would modify the regulatory oversight of certain financial institutions in a way that is likely to expose our economy to greater risk.

Douglas Adams
Sometimes I stress too much and don’t have fun. If you’re trying to be perfect, sometimes it backfires on you.
Chad Pennington
I love my job. I don’t find it stressful, and I only took a rest because I didn’t find another club after Real. It was not something that I needed because of stress, because that is not a problem for me. I don’t have pressure. I like my job, and I know how it is. I have experience.
Carlo Ancelotti
We must have a pie. Stress cannot exist in the presence of a pie.

Amy Morin
Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day is the rest we take between two deep breaths, or the turning inwards in prayer for five short minutes.
Etty Hillesum
Families need families. Parents need to be parented. Grandparents, aunts, and uncles are back in fashion because they are necessary. Stresses on many families are out of proportion to anything two parents can handle.
T. Berry Brazelton
I’d like to thank my parents for always stressing, be an individual.
Shelby Lynne
Stress is like fire: When controlled and used for a purpose, it serves us well. Left unbridled, it can consume us.

Ambrose Bierce
Stress is a message. It is a personal invitation to make a change for the better.
Robert Holden
Why do I use the same actors in different movies? One of the things I really stress in casting is I need to find someone who is suitable for the role in the movie. That’s always the main reason.
Stephen Chow
The urgent finds you; you have to find the important. Importance is not fast. It is slow. It is not superficial. It is deep. And as a result, it’s extremely powerful. When important matters go wrong, they undermine everything. When they go right, they sustain everything.
Stewart Brand
It is easy to be swept away by some overwhelming feeling, so it’s helpful to remember that any stressful feeling is like a compassionate alarm clock that says, “You’re caught in the dream.”

Marat Safin
Some brides stress, some don’t. I think I’m a serene bride.

Jack Ma
My brother is a doctor and he will take care of post-traumatic stress. I think he’ll do it for free.

Today’s accent may be on youth, but the stress is still on the parents.
Earl Wilson
Whenever I do the sign of the cross, it always brings comfort in situations when you are faced with adversity and stress.

Justin Long
The number of stressors has multiplied exponentially: traffic, money, success, work/life balance, the economy, the environment, parenting, family conflict, relationships, disease. As the nature of human life has become far more complicated, our ancient stress response hasn’t been able to keep up.
Andrew J. Bernstein
Don’t get me wrong: I’m a sucker for weddings. I’ll get misty-eyed watching the union of two perfect strangers. But in some cases – and I need to stress some cases – I feel like we’re getting blindsided by the spectacle of it all.
Dan Levy
The best antidote to stress is resilience… having the ability to respond to change or adversity proactively and resourcefully.

Amber Liu
Stress is your body’s way of saying you haven’t worked enough unpaid overtime.

Jon Soltz
In life, stress happens when you resist what arises.
Dan Millman
Circumcision in the United States is routinely performed without anesthesia, though anesthesia reduces the infant’s stress and prevents infection and blood clots.
Warren Farrell

Allan Lokos
Stress is not the spice of life any more than arsenic is. And without it, you won’t feel bored.
Andrew J. Bernstein
Post-traumatic stress, that’s why the soldiers need marijuana, is for their mental health. It makes them feel better so that they don’t have the horrors of war in their mind all the time. And the government won’t allow them to have it, because it’s illegal – federally. It’s absurd.
Jesse Ventura
When you have a lot of stress and negativity around you, when you cut that away, you cleanse.
Lil Jon
Its not stress that kills us, it is our reaction to it.
Hans Selye
Painting and sculpture, labour and good faith, have been my ruin and I continually go from bad to worse. Better it would have been for me if I had set myself to making matches in my youth. I should not be in such distress of mind.
Being stuck in a rut can kill your creativity, stress you out, and zap your productivity. Doing the same thing over and over again causes your days to blend together.
Amy Morin

Sandra Lee
A round of golf is the ideal antidote to stress.

Sharan Burrow
My father’s death, my move, and my frightening and difficult delivery created a tremendous amount of stress, pain, and sadness for me. I was practically devastated beyond recovery.

Ed Helms
Running hills breaks up your rhythm and forces your muscles to adapt to new stresses. The result? You become stronger.
Eamonn Coghlan
I can’t stress it enough that we genuinely love ‘The Room.’ Like I said, I’ve seen it more than any other movie that’s ever been made, and it gets to a point where if a movie is that watchable, when can we just call it a good movie?
Dave Franco
We worked out a lot of bugs and figured out who was working and who wasn’t and how this beast functions. It was a lot bigger than we actually thought, and now we have a well-run ship where it feels I can actually have time to imagine and not just stress out about everything.
Genevieve Gorder
Anything that gets you to release the stress in your life and really laugh is worthwhile. It can heal the planet. It truly can, and it actually has.
Lucie Arnaz
I don’t stress at all. When other people say, ‘I’m having a bad day,’ I ask, ‘How can you have a bad day for the entire 24 hours, or even 12 or eight hours?’ Something bad might happen, but that can’t make the entire day bad.
Cloris Leachman
Spatial working memory is impaired by stress.
Richard Davidson

Carnie Wilson
It is familiarity with life that makes time speed quickly. When every day is a step in the unknown, as for children, the days are long with gathering of experience . . .
George Gissing
I’ve learned to deal with stress. In fact, things that would make the next person go over a cliff don’t even make my radar anymore.
Kate Gosselin
In the class that I teach at one University, I stress that my one-word definition of politics is money. You can’t name a subject matter that money doesn’t touch.
Douglas Wilder
I personally believe the film turns out better when shot in one short schedule, plus it doesn’t stress the actors.
Shahrukh Khan
The stress that some of us feel – it’s a lack of faith, it really is.
Francis Chan
We’re the only species that can look into the future and know that we’re going to die one day, and it causes all sorts of cognitive stress on your system.
Jason Silva
No-one gets an iron-clad guarantee of success. Certainly, factors like opportunity, luck and timing are important. But the backbone of success is usually found in old-fashioned, basic concepts like hard work, determination, good planning and perseverance.
Mia Hamm
Don’t overdo it. Don’t over-diet, over-exercise, overeat, overdo the makeup, and don’t stress out.
Cheryl Ladd
You all know I have terminal cancer-and I have a lot of it. But what you may not know is that stress induces its spread and induces its activity. Stress may even bring it on. Yet stress is the fuel of the activist.
Tom McCall
I think it’s so important to be healthy and confident and natural. And not put too much stress on trying to be thin – I don’t get the thin, thin thing at all.
Lily James
There’s something really terrible about having your BlackBerry next to your bed or having your laptop in the living room when you’re talking to someone. The biggest source of stress in my life is the screen, the blogging.
Jessica Valenti
Our new economic approach is rooted in ideas which stress the importance of macro-economics, post neo-classical endogenous growth theory and the symbiotic relationships between growth and investment, and people and infrastructure.
Gordon Brown
You know, the dirty secret in the Director’s Guild is that the average life expectancy of Director’s Guild members is 57 years old. The stress level is so high and directors are generally really out of shape, cause they sit in the chair and they eat craft service.
Eli Roth
You all know I have terminal cancer – and I have a lot of it. But what you may not know is that stress induces its spread and induces its activity. Stress may even bring it on.
Tom McCall
Focus on what you can do rather than stress about what you have no control over.
Catherine DeVrye
Chocolate is an extraordinary source of key stress-fighting minerals including: magnesium, iron, chromium, vanadium, copper, zinc, manganese, and phosphorus.

David Wolfe
Focus on performance. Outcome is going to happen. No stress about that. Focus on performance.

Andrew J. Bernstein
What is this life if, full of care, we have no time to stand and stare.
W. H. Davies
There is enough reality in my life, so I try not to read things that have too much stress.
Rulon Gardner
Stress is a byproduct of subconscious beliefs you have about the world. You can’t choose not to believe something. You believe it because you think it’s true. To eliminate stress, you must learn to challenge these beliefs so that you see them differently.
Andrew Bernstein
Cash is available and we should use that in larger amounts, as is necessary, to solve the problems of the stress of this.
Alan Greenspan
I suggest that those groups whose culture and values stress delayed gratification – education, hard work, success, and ambition – are those groups that succeed in America, regardless of discrimination.
Richard Lamm

Lysa TerKeurst
We create stress for ourselves because you feel like you have to do it. You have to. I don’t feel that anymore
Oprah Winfrey
Glute bridges make sure my hips are staying in line. Making sure that I’m not putting added stress on the hamstrings, hip flexors, or groin. Being able to stabilize the hips is pretty much the center of playing football, so you can stay healthy.
Zach Ertz
Vernon Bogdanor’s account The Monarchy and the Constitution is written as much in the shadow of Edmund Burke as it is of Walter Bagehot. He stresses the organic development of the British constitution, prefers evolution to revolution, and thinks stability is better than strife.
David Cannadine
Babies have much higher levels of stress in childcare.
Mem Fox
Clarity moves much more efficiently than violence or stress.
Byron Katie
I think a certain amount of stress in life is good. The stress of just working, which takes effort – I think it keeps you going.
Anthony Hopkins
Homosexuality, like androgyny, might be an instinctive racial response to overpopulation, crowding, and stress. Both flourish when empire reaches its apogee.
Edward Abbey
A Romantic ideology that predates rock glorifies the self-destructive artist as someone who’s too honest and delicate for this world… It’s not an easy job, and its stresses can take their toll.
Jon Pareles
Let the music diffuse all the tension.
I think a any person who has a high profile job or who travels all the time or who has a lot of stress associated with their job can be difficult to be in a relationship with.

It cannot be stressful. It just has to be fun. There are many, many things to stress for in this life — not getting ready for a red carpet.
Marion Cotillard
Burning sage changes the energy for the home, so if you’ve had an argument or some form of stress, it removes negative energies.
Karen Rose
My roommates are all such happy-go-lucky guys, and I carry some of the stress around a lot more.
Pierce Brown
I’ve been through periods of stress, turbulence in the market for over the course of my career, various times, and never in any of those other periods have we had the advantage of a strong economy underpinning the markets.
Henry Paulson
If you really want something, it’s nerve-racking, but at the same time, I try not to stress myself out about it too much because there are also so many arbitrary things that go into being cast for something – you know, like the color of your eyes, all these things that are kind of out of my control.
Laura Harrier
If you improve a teacher’s self-esteem, confidence, communication skills or stress levels, you improve that teacher’s overall effectiveness across the curriculum.
Elaine MacDonald
What I would say is I’ve only had one injury in my NBA career that was probably was because my core wasn’t strong enough, when I had a stress fracture in my back.

Stress and looks are directly connected as far as I am concerned. If you are happy, you look good.

What keeps a good face is no stress, and I refuse to worry.

Edward Albert
If I thought of gymnastics as a job, it would put too much stress on me.
Simone Biles
It’s a fun thing to do: Go to a shooting range with a buddy, knock off a few rounds, release stress.
Laurie Holden
Speed kills colour… the gyroscope, when turning at full speed, shows up gray.
Paul Morand
More important, you have to stay happy and positive or the stress will kill you – but at least it will make you skinny
Joely Fisher
…you need not do and be everything.
Kathy Freston
People don’t know how to deal with stress and depression, so they’re nasty to other people because it makes them feel better about themselves.
Kate Nash
The ties that bind us are stronger than the occasional stresses that separate us.
Colin Powell
In the stress of modern life, how little room is left for that most comfortable vanity that whispers in our ears that failures are not faults! Now we are taught from infancy that we must rise or fall upon our own merits; that vigilance wins success, and incapacity means ruin
Agnes Repplier
You [should] persist even though there are some short-term stresses and even though there is some uncertainty, because it’s the right thing to do.
Simon Sinek
As an actor, we’re unemployed a lot, so I’m familiar with the stress of trying to get a gig, and sometimes you take shows that you don’t really want to do to keep the money coming in.
Aaron Douglas
Yale places great stress on undergraduate and graduate teaching. I like teaching, and I do a lot of it.

White fragility is a state in which even a minimum amount of racial stress becomes intolerable, triggering a range of defensive moves.
Robin DiAngelo
Meditation gives you an opportunity to come to know your invisible self. It allows you to empty yourself of the endless hyperactivity of your mind, and to attain calmness. It teaches you to be peaceful, to remove stress, to receive answers where confusion previously reigned.
Wayne Dyer
When you’re doing something you’re passionate about, stress becomes a featurenot a bug.
Aaron Levie
Making fitness a priority will energize you, make you look and feel better, and help diffuse stress.
Mary Helen Bowers
Communities need to feel that they can accommodate people. Rather than feeling that it’s not possible to integrate and that the stress and strain on housing and public services is too great.
Theresa May
My task as a pastor is to remind people of the need for balance. If someone wants to stress personal union with Christ, I remind them of the need for knowledge as well. If they want to stress knowledge, I tell them about their need to depend on Christ.
Mark Dever
I have a lot of older brothers who messed up in different ways in my mother’s eyes. So I learned from all of their mistakes. I can’t go into detail, but while I was growing up, I always tried to make it a goal to relieve some of the stress my mother went through.
Kellan Lutz
I don’t know if it’s a male thing, but I’ve always been interested in how people respond to the stresses and dangers of war, how they react under fire.
George Packer
I’m not walking around feeling black all the time. That would stress me out. It would make me crack.
Jessica Williams
I loved challenging myself every day. The weight room was my therapy for everyday life stresses. No matter what I was doing I always wanted to be the best.
Ronnie Coleman
This is a key point which the secularists are missing: they think that stressing God’s mercy means that sins are no longer sins. On the contrary, God’s mercy is a great gift of grace precisely because sins are sins and they call for repentance and forgiveness.
Thomas J. Paprocki
It is the wind and the rain, O God, the cold and the storm that make this earth of yours to blossom and bear its fruit. So in our lives it is storm and stress and hurt and suffering that make real men and women bring the world’s work to its highest perfection.
W. E. B. Du Bois
Money stress is what used to remind me of my Dad most.
Ted Rall
The voices of moral authority in the theatre demanded only punctuality and physical performance. In the light of continuing pressure and stress, the occasional lip service paid to moderation was meaningless. Starvation and poisoning were not excesses, but measures taken to stay within the norm.
Gelsey Kirkland
I don’t want to take a pill. Go to Africa, go follow some bushman around. He’s being chased by a lion. That’s stress. You’re not going to find a pygmy on Paxil, I’ll tell you that right now.
Ellen DeGeneres
Women are just so much tougher and more patient than men are – their capacity for empathy blows me away. And their capacity to deal with stress for long periods of time is also kind of awe inspiring.
Aaron Lazar
I think when we use ‘stress’, we are often using a kind of dummy word to try to fit many different things into one big category.
Siddhartha Mukherjee
Every (stressful thought) is a variation on a single theme: This shouldn’t be happening. I shouldn’t be having this experience. God is unjust. Life isn’t fair.
Byron Katie
Unease, anxiety, tension, stress, worry
Eckhart Tolle
To learn which questions are unanswerable, and not to answer them: this skill is most needful in times of stress and darkness.
Ursula K. Le Guin
People see me on TV and I’m this calm, level headed guy. Honestly, that’s the furthest thing from who I am. For a long time I struggled with anger and stress. It was killing me, figuratively and literally.
Tom Bergeron
Restaurants stress the protein. People read menu items left to right, with the protein first. I read descriptions right to left.
Barton Seaver
There’s this perception that if you worry a lot and if you look really busy and stressed out then you’ll be more successful. You talk about how little sleep you get and how tensed you are and how you’re not getting the appreciation you deserve.
Nancy Meyers
Al Qaeda is not the organization now that it was before. It is under stress organizationally. Its leadership spends more time trying to figure out how to keep from getting caught than they do trying to launch operations.
Cofer Black
A hurt is at the center of all addictive behaviors. . . . The wound may not be as deep and the ache not as excruciating, and it may even be entirely hidden—but it’s there. As we’ll see, the effects of early stress or adverse experiences directly shape both the psychology and the neurobiology of addiction in the brain
Gabor Mate
Mental tensions, frustrations, insecurity, aimlessness are among the most damaging stressors, and psychosomatic studies have shown how often they cause migraine headache, peptic ulcers, heart attacks, hypertension, mental disease, suicide, or just hopeless unhappiness.
Hans Selye
That’s the purpose of stress. It’s a friend. It’s an alarm clock, built in to let you know that it’s time to do The Work.
Byron Katie
I grew up sort of lower working class. And I just didn’t want to have the money struggles that my parents had. You know, I could just – as loving an environment I grew up in – and I grew up in a great home, a very loving home – but, you know, we had that stress. We had that stress in our life.
Elizabeth Banks
It seems like what happens when we play games is that we go into a psychological state called eustress, or positive stress. It’s basically the same as negative stress in the sense that we get our adrenaline up, you know, our breathing rate quickens, our pulse quickens.
Jane McGonigal
This is such a cynical world. The way the world is, there’s so much going on and so much stress in the world and so much darkness and craziness and imbalance.
Ann Wilson
There is no better test of character than when you’re tossed into crisis. That’s when we see one’s true colors shine through. So I try my best to make my characters personally involved in the plot, in a way that stresses them and tests them.
Tess Gerritsen
I continually stress to my players that all I expect from them at practice and in the games is their maximum effort.
John Wooden
In times of stress, it is easy to look to one’s weaknesses and fear the worst, but it is worth remembering that London’s cultural strengths are not some ephemeral dot-com bubble; they are a real, tangible legacy of decades of investment in talent.
Munira Mirza
They place great stress on the clarity of our language for expressing nuances and showing subtleties.
Bernard Pivot
Everything that’s supposedly caused by stress, I tell people there’s a Nobel Prize there if you find out the real cause.
Barry Marshall
I hear many people talk about their longing for a balanced life. What I think they are really expressing is a desire for a life with less pressure.
Mary Anne Radmacher
The real artist is striving to depict his subject’s character and to stress the caricature, but at least it is art which is alive.
William Dobell
In middle age I’ve begun to embrace stress reducing behaviors. Just in doing yoga, for example, my health has improved dramatically.
James Redford
Food is a party; it’s exciting. It should be a source of entertainment and nourishment. And just do everything you can to not let food become anything but fun. Let it be a source of pleasure, not anxiety or neuroses or stress.
Andrew W.K.
One challenge is trying to extend access to more poorly served communities in rural areas and in the inner city. Sometimes you have kids who are suffering from trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder, and they have no way of getting access to the remedies that are available to them.
Scott Stossel
I hate people saying anything stupid. I don’t really suffer fools very well at all. When people are acting like idiots, not that I’m not guilty of doing the odd idiotic thing myself from time to time, but when people say stupid things, it stresses me out.
Joshua Jackson
… the primitve Christians, by laying so much stress upon a future life in contradiction to this life, and placing the lower creatures out of the pale of sympathy, and thus had the foundation for this utter disregard of animals in the light of our fellow creatures.
Anna Brownell Jameson
I’ve got stress like anybody else, and it builds up during the day. Like, I’ll be trying to do something on the computer, and I’ll get stuck ,so I go to the help section. And it just enrages me, because why even call it a help section at all? There’s nothing in any way ‘helpful’ about it.
Lewis Black
Kids in Flint don’t even know that you can write to express your feelings and go to the gym and work out, you can run, you can do whatever you love to help relieve stress.
Claressa Shields
Anger, stress, tension, depression, sorrow, hate, fear – these things start to retreat. And for a filmmaker, having this negativity lift away is money in the bank. When you’re suffering you can’t create.
David Lynch
Aquamarine is an airy blue with a dreamy feel. Cool and calming, ethereal Aquamarine is a shade with a wet and watery feel. Open and expansive, this restful blue also acts as a stress reducer.
Leatrice Eiseman
There’s no magic bullet; there’s no pill that you take that makes everything great and makes you happy all the time. I’m letting go of those expectations, and that’s opening me up to moments of transcendent bliss. But I still feel the stress over ‘Am I thin enough? Am I too thin? Is my body the right shape?’
Anne Hathaway
Whatever stress some may lay upon it, a death-bed repentance is but a weak and slender plank to trust our all on.
Laurence Sterne
We get bored because we don’t want to sit with our fears. We don’t want to sit with our anxiety. We don’t want to sit with our stress because it’s uncomfortable.
Jay Shetty
See yourself living in a new body. Hopeful = recovery. Happy = happier biochemistry. Stress degrades the bod.
Rhonda Byrne
The life of inner peace, being harmonious and without stress, is the easiest type of existence.
Norman Vincent Peale
A location can really enhance exercise enjoyment. Getting out in nature – whether it’s a beach, lake, river, forest, hills or even an urban park – can do wonders for our mood and stress levels.
Michael Klim
Observational studies show that exercise, nutritional supplements and reducing psychological stress can help. Chronic high stress and smoking can lead to accelerated telomere shortening.
Elizabeth Blackburn
Hip-hop has always been speaking about the way your brain is manipulated by stress and struggle because hip-hop is borne from struggle.
Vic Mensa
No wonder they call shopping ‘retail therapy,’ as any girl will tell you how it just takes away all the stress.
Riya Sen
For most of my life, I have eaten to deal with stress.
Barney Frank
t was almost disappointing because it seemed when stress and madness were eliminated from my daily life there wasn’t much left you could depend on.
Charles Bukowski
When the mind is opening to that unbounded pure awareness, the field of pure intelligence, simultaneously the body is losing stresses and strains, and thereby the clouds that were hindering the use of inner full creative intelligence in action, they begin to wither away.
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
These small indignities and minor cruelties take a toll. They add to the burden of stress and fatigue that is already present in the workplace and they have real consequences on the every day lives of workers.
P. M. Forni
I totally had OCD as a teenager. I used to have to touch all four sides of a picture frame when I got home from school and before I started to do my homework. It was time-consuming. But then I just outgrew it, though it sometimes comes back when I’m under a lot of stress.
Kate Micucci
I find that if I go on a vacation, it’s like that’s more stress to me, because I want to get back.
Donald Trump
I don’t read reviews. I haven’t read them for probably 30 years. I can’t. When they’re bad, they’re really rough, and when they’re good, they’re not good enough. You can always find something to stress over.
Kevin Bacon
The farmers are older; they are under financial stress to produce more margins, yet they keep getting less.
Joel Salatin
Being ill-prepared and unequipped to deal with life’s inevitable challenges leaves us vulnerable to the dangerous effects of stress.
Amy Morin
Getting some time away to be active, work out, do yoga is definitely a necessity in life. These activities help me relieve stress and center my mind when I’m playing the waiting game after an audition.
Allen Evangelista
I think I ran so hard and so fast, in a lot of ways, from my life and I kind of took a fall. It was like – what do they call it? – post-traumatic stress syndrome.
Rose McGowan
I’m here to make people feel like they can release stress, have a good time, be positive and live life.
Lil Jon
People take such an interest in your love life when you have a profile; it puts a lot of stress on a relationship.
Margot Robbie
Day by day, in every way, I am getting better and better
Emile Coue
I just refuse to date actors. I’ve done that, and I don’t want to do that anymore. It’s just the stress of traveling and being away from each other so much.
Lea Salonga
I could imagine God saying to a lot of us, “Hey, I’m God, and you’re not. You’re not the general manager of the universe.” And the greatest stress reliever is take God seriously, but don’t take yourself seriously.
Rick Warren
I think I knew I was funny in Elementary School. I think most funny people realize it when they’re young. It tends to come out of stress or trauma – something that makes you want to be funny.
Julie Brown
The culture in which we live stresses looking out for number one. Without adopting such a self-centered value system, we can demand the best of ourselves while we are extending our hands to help others.
Benjamin Carson
The stress stops here
Harry S. Truman
The better work men do is always done under stress and at great personal cost.
William Carlos Williams
Many companies have long contended that stress in the home causes productivity loss in the market place.. and it does. But research now reveals that stress on the job causes stress at home. In other words, they feed off each other
Zig Ziglar
Stand up is the most stressful, and hosting and presenting a show has its own stresses, because you’ve got an audience which you’ve got to entertain as well as an audience at home.
Paddy McGuinness
My father used to stress that he valued us all as individuals, but that no one in the world was worth more or less than anyone else. This was a good principle to establish in a large family.
Stellan Skarsgard
I don’t feel the pressure and stress of having to be a comic in a club every night. I accomplished a lot of things; I did lot of things, and I don’t feel like I’m missing out when I am home with my son.
Kevin Nealon
Relieve stress through hysterical screaming.
Tim Dorsey
Adolescence can be a time of turmoil and turbulence, of stress and storm. Rebellion against authority and against convention is to be expected and tolerated for the sake of learning and growth.
Haim Ginott
Some people get fat when they’re miserable; certainly this was true of my teenage self, but as an adult, deliver me a week of extreme stress and misery and watch me disappear.
Sophie Dahl
The Republican Party, I really believe, suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder from years and years of bullying and taunting. The Republican Party is Jonathan Martin. The Democrat Party and the media are Richie Incognito.
Rush Limbaugh
When we play games, our brains respond differently to stress and obstacles. We’re better able to control our attention and ignore distractions.
Jane McGonigal
I felt it was vital to stress the importance of national security in this debate and the need for a clear path to our exit from the European Union. I hope I have achieved both these objectives.
Liam Fox
The majority of autists – as well as their parents – seem to be genuine victims of environmental stress.
Nikolaas Tinbergen
To be a champion, you have to learn to handle stress and pressure. But if you’ve prepared mentally and physically, you don’t have to worry.
Harvey Mackay
Doing something like ‘Damages,’ I played a character with post-traumatic stress. I was playing with sleep deprivation. I was not sleeping; I stayed up for three days at a time, drinking Red Bull. I would get shaky and tired and hyper.
Chris Messina
Don’t worry about breaks every 20 minutes ruining your focus on a task. Contrary to what I might have guessed, taking regular breaks from mental tasks actually improves your creativity and productivity. Skipping breaks, on the other hand, leads to stress and fatigue.
Tom Rath
Stress comes from trying to achieve, trying to do something, trying to keep up with the events of the world, the speed of the world, and trying to accomplish, to produce results.
Drunvalo Melchizedek
I find that if I don’t have enough physical activity in life, I don’t do as well with anything else in my life. It’s stress relief; it’s good health. It’s fun. It’s alone time, for the most part.
Betsy Hodges
After a certain point, a heart with so many stress fractures can never be anything but broken.
Jodi Picoult
Set goals, work hard, trust yourself, and only stress over what you can control.
Sadie Calvano
Yoga can get at the roots of issues that cause behaviors leading to obesity, heart disease, and stress.
Tara Stiles
Poverty damages the educational potential of children, whether through stress or poor diet, while overcrowded, poor-quality housing has the same impact too.
Owen Jones
I think I knew I was funny in Elementary School. I think most funny people realize it when they’re young. It tends to come out of stress or trauma – something that makes you want to be funny.
Downtown Julie Brown
Nature tops the list of potent tranquilizers and stress reducers. The mere sound of moving water has been shown to lower blood pressure.
Patch Adams
Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.
John Lubbock
Training gives us an outlet for suppressed energies created by stress and thus tones the spirit just as exercise conditions the body.
Arnold Schwarzenegger
I remember the first pangs of stress arriving at the end of school. Once I graduated I had to get a full-time job, worry about health insurance, saving money, paying rent – things I’d never thought about before.
Ezra Koenig
There are a lot of challenges we are facing, like how you are supposed to react to emotional stress.
Sam Fender
Driving on gravel is very demanding. There are lots of movements on the steering wheel which put a lot of stress on my arm and my hand.
Robert Kubica
For me, working out is nothing to do with looks. It’s to let it all out – the stress, the self-consciousness – you think less; it makes you more centred.
Eva Green
Ivanka Trump is a close friend and just a wonderful person, mother, and businesswoman. Everyone thinks she has it all, but she always stresses that there is no such thing.
Georgina Bloomberg
If it’s a Clean Bandit-related stress, there are smooth things they play on Classical FM that can help, such as Barber’s ‘Adagio for Strings,’ or there is a choral version of it too that is very relaxing.
Grace Chatto
On the whole, I now see my work as being an expression of my spiritual life and, because I look at it that way, I have a different centre. I go through the stress and pressure, but I think I’m lucky because I come from a different source point.
Forest Whitaker
The woman in labor must have NO STRESS placed upon her. She must be free to move about, walk, rock, go to the bathroom by herself, lie on her side or back, squat or kneel, or anything she finds comfortable, without fear of being scolded or embarrassed. Nor is there any need for her to be either “quiet” or “good.”
Grantly Dick-Read
The elusive truth is that there is nothing stress-producing in the physical world. Things simply are. Molecules move. Light and sound appear.
Andrew Bernstein
Even in a moment of stress, you can say, “OK, can I enjoy the doing itself? Can I enjoy the flow of energy of this moment?” And of course you can!
Eckhart Tolle
I try to stress to my children that buying something never leads to true happiness.
Harlan Coben
I think the best way is to keep stressing, that, as we build out a new energy system, one of the best things about it, if we do it right, will be that it will be more local, more democratic, more distributed, and, in the long run, much more economically sensible.
Bill McKibben
Just because I have to deal with the stress and pressure and nerves of elite sport every day, it doesn’t mean it all comes easily. I have worked hard at the mental side of my game.
Jos Buttler
Your mindset matters. It affects everything – from the business and investment decisions you make, to the way you raise your children, to your stress levels and overall well-being.
Peter Diamandis
Live in the moment, day by day, and don’t stress about the future. People are so caught up in looking into the future, that they kind of lose what’s in front of them.
Jenna Ushkowitz
In India’s distant past, when the population was low, the blessing given a woman was, ‘May you have many children.’ Most of our epics and literature stress this wish, and the idea that a woman should have many children hasn’t declined.
Indira Gandhi
Holistic Healthcare remains a very big attraction. Best of the doctors are moving towards homeopathy. There’s a mood for Holistic Healthcare. There’s a mood to go toward stress free life from a stressful life.
Narendra Modi
When stress sets in, and pressure, I focus.
David Hallberg
I asked long ago,’What must I do to be saved?’ The Scripture answered, ‘Keep the commandments, believe, hope, love.’ I was early warned against laying, as the Papists do, too much stress on outward works, or on a faith without works, which as it does not include, so it will never lead to true hope or charity.
John Wesley
Joe was being called a liar and a traitor; I’m being accused of nepotism, of being a glorified secretary. The stresses that that places on an individual and, of course, a marriage were tremendous. It was – there were some dark days.
Valerie Plame
I’m a person who has a lot of energy. So, yes, I don’t really stop to rest or de-stress. I just keep going. I figure that if you don’t stop, then you’ll never notice how tired you are.
Zooey Deschanel
The values learned on the playing field-how to set goals, endure, take criticism and risks, become team players, use our beliefs, stay healthy and deal with stress-prepare us for life.
Donna de Varona
I learned how the brain is the softest organ we have – how soft the brain literally is and also how easily it can be manipulated. I think I will survive the whole thing, but there are lots of coincidences. For example, somehow I might have been trained to sustain stress through my life and through my art.
Paola Pivi
I realized that filmmaking is an eminently scalable act. No matter how big or how small, there’s joys and stresses that will all scale themselves magnificently to fit the production.
David Lowery
Any of us are capable of doing things we’re not proud of under the wrong kind of stresses.
Bill James
The oyster leads a dreadful but exciting life. Indeed, his chance to live at all is slim, and if he should survive the arrows of his own outrageous fortune and in the two weeks of his carefree youth find a clean smooth place to fix on, the years afterwards are full of stress, passion, and danger.
M. F. K. Fisher
Each moment is a place you’ve never been.
Mark Strand
I think that is one thing I’ve picked up: follow a routine, be consistent, and everything is going to fall in place. If you are scrambling around, and you are late for stuff, that adds extra stress, and you have to go out there and hit a 97 mph fastball.
Aaron Judge
The more I learn about the evolution of ideas, the more I have become aware that I am simply an unrepentant Old Whig-with the stress on the “old.
Friedrich August von Hayek
We become more successful when we are happier and more positive.
Shawn Achor
The truth is that stress doesn’t come from your boss, your kids, your spouse, traffic jams, health challenges, or other circumstances. It comes from your thoughts about these circumstances.
Andrew J. Bernstein
People become attached to their burdens sometimes more than the burdens are attached to them.
George Bernard Shaw
I’ve got a couple of grays in my beard and maybe a little salt and pepper in my hair. If I let my hair down and go through it, you’d see a good bit of grays. Maybe from the stress of the road and the crazy business I’m in.
Roman Reigns
It’s perfectly reasonable in a coalition between two political parties that you get supporters of those parties you know stressing the things they want to stress.
George Osborne
Training is a case of stress management. Stress and rest, stress and rest
Brooks Johnson
I felt in a lot of instances I was deliberately being put through stress because when you’re a guy who generates money, people have a vested interest in controlling you.
Dave Chappelle
I never thought of myself as a wealthy person. I’ve thought of myself as a person who has had a lot of luck. I don’t have the same stress that other people have, but there are too many things I could have done differently if wealth was what I was after. If I was all about money, I would have lived in L.A.
Alec Baldwin
Industrial society seems likely to be entering a period of severe stress, due in part to problems of human behavior and in part to economic and environmental problems
Cyril Connolly
In our world, these harmful micro-organisms and an endless list of toxic chemicals consistently assault our immune system. Coupled with these assaults are the daily stresses of life and their deleterious effects upon us.
David Wolfe
Stress appears in your life because you have a rigid view of ‘This is the way the world should be,’ and the Universe pays scant regard to your desires. And you refuse to accept this.
Srikumar Rao
All stress is ultimately related to loss or the fear of loss.
David Simon
In security analysis the prime stress is laid upon protection against untoward events. We obtain this protection by insisting upon margins of safety, or values well in excess of the price paid.
Benjamin Graham
I love how it feels to go into the gym, crank all my favorite music and literally sweat out all of the things that stress me out.
Jeannie Mai
Stress is never a given. There are people who get divorced amicably. There are people who pack up and move with no emotional toll. There is no stressor ‘out there’ in the world. We experience stress – or we don’t – depending on what we believe.
Andrew Bernstein
