Stress, Attitudes, and Emotions
"It is not so much the experiences of life that cause us stress, as our own attitudes about them. Our bodies produce the mood that our mind thinks. If we think about a restful time, our body will be more relaxed. If we dwell on negatives, our body will feel negative--which can bring physical and emotional problems." Rev. Dr. Santana-Grace
The Rev. Dr. Edward Santana-Grace emphasized that negative attitudes produced bad anger, anxiety, negative self-talk, pessimistic attitudes, and depression [or striking back]. He founded REST-C2 as a means of teaching others how to control their own emotions through a vibrant relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.
