Daily Motivation: Anxiety & Frustration

Pareto’s Principle: As applied to health=Most important 20% actions creates 80% of the health benefits.


Not a clinical day passes without the common theme of anxiety and frustration contributing to a patient’s diagnosis.  Early in my medical career I recognized the undeniable fact–the mind is connected to the body.  When anxiety and frustrations fester, illness closely follows.


“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”–Jesus (Matthew 6:34)


Troubled Minds = Troubled Bodies

Learning to cope with life’s daily struggles plays a huge role in longevity and health.    Ignoring stress and allowing worry about tomorrow, or what one cannot control, you WILL have greater health problems.   Find inspiration where you can.  Find muses that help you focus on the moment.


Applying Pareto’s Principle to health, Improve your health by improving your attitude and ability to focus on the present.


For better health, seek friends, organizations, and information that help you cultivate that ability.  Avoid situations that create, exacerbate or perpetuate anxiety and frustration.


“True happiness is to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence upon the future, not to amuse ourselves with either hopes or fears but to rest satisfied with what we have, which is sufficient, for he that is so wants nothing. The greatest blessings of mankind are within us and within our reach. A wise man is content with his lot, whatever it may be, without wishing for what he has not.”

― Lucius Annaeus Seneca
