Gone are the days when LIFE was something to be lived, today LIFE is something to be stressed about. If stress could burn calories, we all would be supermodels!!!

We have enveloped ourselves with such a bubble of stress that we have practically forgotten how to survive without it. Childhood is burdened with stress of examinations, adolescence with stress of choosing a career and the whole adult life is spent in achieving everything that a system demands. The end result – Somewhere the LIFE within us dies and what remains is a mechanical body.

We as professionals have 100 dreams to achieve, 1000 steps to climb the ladder of success and a strong desire to be one feather ahead. What we forget is that we also have just one life to live. Ambition is a strong flame which should remain ignited in everyone, but a balance is needed or else it is also an open invitation to stress. Today, everyone wants to achieve everything and anything. It's a Mad Race out there, where no one knows where is the finishing line. And in all this chaos no one has time to sit back and quietly enjoy the process of doing what is actually your passion. Because if you do that you are out of life's race. And imagine we grew up listening that the turtle wins against the rabbit!!!

Success is an icing on Life's cake. Who would not want that icing, but the parameter of success is for every individual to decide. From the time the alarm rings to the time we reset it again at the day's end, stress drives us the whole day long. It's not the load that breaks you down, it's the way you carry it. A little laughter, a little time to breathe, a little moment to behold the beauty of nature, a little attempt to keep the child in us alive – that is what should make the perfect recipe for Life. Ups and Downs are part of this journey, for a straight line even on an electrocardiogram indicates death.

It's time we have our break up with stress and be the masters of our own ships. Let's make the journey more enjoyable without fretting about the destination. For 10–20 years from now, we still want a heart beating within us.
