The human mind and body as an organism is meant to be stressed. It is our great gift to learn how to adapt and evolve ourselves. Since the beginning of time we have adapted and used stress to do that. We are the only species on the planet that voluntarily place stress in front of us to become stronger. Whether that’s reading, learning or studying to improve our minds or lifting, running and swimming to improve our body we have the ability to better ourselves. With this comes great freedom. However, we have to take the responsibility to invite positive stress into our lives. As the stoic philosophy strongly suggest, we should live in accordance with nature.
Mastery Approach – Generally appreciate everything about the process of striving for personal excellence regardless of the end result.
Pay attention to your fatigue meter. Don’t lie in bed awake, if you’re having trouble sleeping then do something else. Read a fictional book or something light that avoids thought provoking activity. Try listening to music until you feel tired.

The “Art of Being Alone”
Maybe something rather new to dive into but practicing being along is a powerful skill. For most if not all devices on the planet need to be plugged in or charged to properly work to full capacity. As a human we also need a charger. This charge is called solitude, become chargeable by uncharging. This is the raw ability to be alone.
First and foremost this seems easy to some people and incredibly difficult for others. The power of perception wins in this specific skill. Having to actually accept yourself, acknowledge your own thinking and act as your own charger does not meet us all at the same level of understanding. Take your time at this layer of the journey. Take your time diving into peaceful alone time. When we talk about alone time we are talking about truly being alone. No stimulations, no one around you nothing to capture your mind that is outside of nature. This skill becomes daunting if not practiced, yet most of our worlds greatest inventions have come through solitude. Being able to intentionally isolate ourselves opens us up to explore our mind. The genius that lives in us all.
