10 Mindful Quotes to Turn to When Worry or Stress Take Over

Okay we get it, worry and stress are bad for us. As a matter of fact they not only drain us mentally but they take a toll on our physical health as well. But this post isn’t here to regurgitate all of the scientifically-backed side effects in relation to excessive worrying and stressing. Since we’re pretty sure nobody enjoys worrying and/or stressing out, we can at least take some measures to mindfully release the grasp of them when they take hold of our consciousness. Lets give worry and stress a run for their money instead of allowing them to unconscionably imprison us. Here are 10 quotes that may mindfully remind us of how unnecessary and ineffective they can be:

1. “If you spend your whole life waiting for the storm, you’ll never enjoy the sunshine.” – Morris West

2. “If you really knew what was happening to you when you are stressed, you would freak out.” – Dr. Mark Hyman
