Change is Stressful — Stress is Changeable

Got stress? Stick the word in a search engine and you’ll find verbs like reduce, cope, deal, relieve, overcome, manage, combat and more. Here’s what you won’t find: embrace, welcome, appreciate, employ, cultivate or be grateful, but this is the healthy alternative. Why work so hard when there’s a better way to treat your mind and body?

At its simplest level, stress is natural, normal, inborn, organic and essential to your survival. You might wish you could completely wipe it out—but keep in mind that the only total stress-free zone is a cemetery.

It’s time to bust the myths about stress and take a fresh approach because it can help you not just survive—but thrive. Imagine a life without anticipation, attachment, joy, wonder, fun, excitement or celebration—each of these states involve stress. You don’t want to get rid of it, you want to convert it into a force that favors you.

Emerson said: the best way out is through. Neuroscience says: change your mind, change your life. Leslie says: turn what you know about stress inside out—and make it work for you, not against you.

How about boldly venturing where you have not gone before? Learn creative ways for meeting life’s challenges in a kinder, gentler manner. Make stress an asset—not an enemy. Let it bring out your best instead of letting it get the worst of you.

Leslie’s book, Bless Your Stress: It Means You’re Still Alive! is proof she knows the secret of sparking change and putting your signature spin on stress—for good! If you and your team need some fast-acting relief with a light and lively touch, call her today.

About the Spark—and You

It takes a spark to start an engine, light a room, charge a cell phone. Constant pulses of invisible, accessible sparks of energy drive your daily routines and devices, making life comfortable and convenient.

You have ready access to another source of power, a built-in energy that helps you successfully live, love, work, play or even change the world if you so choose. It’s your inner spark. Keep it lit, especially during difficult times, because light shines brightest in the dark.

A born encourager, Leslie Charles suggests you stand in your own light instead of other people’s shadows, making it possible to neutralize blame, fear or excuses that get in the way of getting what you want. She will make you think and make you laugh, mostly at yourself.

By mobilizing your natural capabilities and personal achievements, you are more prepared to take on change, stress and challenge with resilience and reserve. When your inner spark is bright, you are ready to rise and shine when crisis strikes, just as you have always been meant to do.
