List of stress quotes

Stress quote: “I was a little excited but mostly blorft. “Blorft” is an adjective I just made up that means ‘Completely overwhelmed but proceeding as if everything is fine and reacting to the stress with the torpor of a possum.’ I have been blorft every day for the past seven years.” 

― Tina Fey, Bossypants

Quote on stress: “ Money doesn’t mean anything to me. I’ve made a lot of money, but I want to enjoy life and not stress myself building my bank account. I give lots away and live simply, mostly out of a suitcase in hotels. We all know that good health is much more important. Keanu Reeves “

Stress quote: “In the midst of any stressful situation, say or think a series of statements such as, Stay calm. . . everything’s okay. . . you’ve handled worse before. . . relax and take a deep breath. . . take it step by step and don’t rush. . . I can get help if I need it.” Amy E. Dean

Quote on stress: “The mind can go either direction under stress—toward positive or toward negative: on or off. Think of it as a spectrum whose extremes are unconsciousness at the negative end and hyperconsciousness at the positive end. The way the mind will lean under stress is strongly influenced by training.” 

― Frank Herbert, Dune

Quote on stress: “There are many types of teachable moments in life. Contentment is not always the most fertile ground to garner self-knowledge. At times, bitter memories can force us to change and teach us to avoid duplicating past conduct that led to regret and remorse. The greater the degree of anxiety that we assign to periods of uncertainty and distress the less likely we will resort to duplicating these problematic experiences in the future.” 

― Kilroy J. Oldster

Stress quote: “I’m jealous, and i am because you give yourself to people who don’t know your worth, to people who don’t appreciate you or your time. and it makes me wonder, you know? why? why in the world would such a beautiful person put themselves through so much pain? I don’t get it. you have everything in front of you. everyone you need, people who adore you and love you. people who you’ve over looked. open your eyes, sweet pea, the people you spend most of your time thinking of, stressing over, don’t want you. hell, they barely even notice when you’re not around and still, you want to believe that it’s the kind of love you deserve, the kind of attention you should chase because it’s all you’ve ever known but it’s wrong, all of it is. you don’t deserve to believe that you need to have people that shatter you to feel alive. you don’t deserve that kind of broken love. you deserve sad songs with happy endings. you deserve the deepest love, someone who’ll look at you and echo your name forever.” 

― Himanshu Kohli

Quote on stress: “ Everyone has the ability to increase resilience to stress. It requires hard work and dedication, but over time, you can equip yourself to handle whatever life throws your way without adverse effects to your health. Training your brain to manage stress won’t just affect the quality of your life, but perhaps even the length of it. Amy Morin “

Stress quote:  “Stress is caused by being “here” but wanting to be “there”, or being in the present moment but wanting to be in the future. You can move fast, work fast, or run without projecting yourself into the future and without resisting the present. As you move, do it totally, enjoying the flow of energy at that moment. Or when you do nothing and the mind says “you should be working. You are wasting time” – observe the mind. Smile at it!” 

Eckhart Tolle
