Life can get crazy at times and the stress feels overwhelming.
How we look at stress affects our reality. If we look at the situation as being overwhelming and difficult that will be the reality of the situation. But if we change our perception of a situation we can change our reality.
First by changing your attitude towards the situation can make it easier to deal with. We need to learn to weed out the negative thoughts, these thoughts are unproductive and don’t help fix the situation.
Ever notice that the more negative you think the harder it is to think of a solution to the issue.
Don’t forget you always have a choice in how a situation is handled. You need to challenge your negative perception on the situation.
For instance , you think “I am not strong enough to deal with this , I think I will break by the end.”
Change that thought and keep telling yourself ” I am strong and I will come out even stronger at the end.” Feeding your self positive thoughts will help ease the stress of a situation and help you keep a clear mind to find the best way of fixing the situation you are dealing with.
Also pay very close attention to your emotions when in a stressful situation.
We tend to hide our emotions and feelings, this is never good for any situation. Take some time and really think about what you are feeling or find a good friend or family member that is willing to just listen while you try to talk and work out what your feeling.
It’s always important to talk to someone that will give you their full attention and will not feed more negative thoughts to the situation.
The only thing that will come from bottled up emotions is a very large explosion that will do no good in the end.
Our reaction to stress is automatic and its often based on a past-programed response. Learn to pause and create space between you and the stress first. You need to always restore emotional control of the situation first.
This means DO NOT GO INTO DEFENSIVE MODE. Being defensive only makes you powerless.
In any situation we need to realize that life happens and with it comes stress. You will always survive what is thrown at you and I promise it will always make you stronger.
Stop now and think of all the situations in your life that you thought would end you. Now what positive has come out of it, I bet now your thinking it happened for a very good reason.
I know that I recently had gone through a situation that took a lot out of me and in the end it worked out to the best and now I am very grateful that it happened.
If your going through something now please don’t forget your strong and you can do this. I believe in you and you should believe in your self too.
