You or other people like your parents have programmed you to think things automatically. It stands to reason that you can re-train your brain to think for
yourself, deleting the non beneficial plans lodged in your mind by other people.
If a parent or a teacher told you you were slow or not great at math, or you have to
do well on a test, get rid of that way of thinking because you have to know most people project what they feel about themselves onto other people. They may or may not now what they’re doing because their parents did it to them. It doesn’t really matter, if something is stressing you out, banish it from your thought process and energy field.
Here are 7 Tips to de-stress easily.
1. Deep steady breathing. If someone has triggered you or something has set you off, sit down and breathe deep and slow. With each breath you take, breathe air into your body slowly, deeply, while expanding your rib cage with the fresh air. Continue doing this for at least 5 minutes, If you can make 5 minutes, then do at least one minute.
2. When the voice in your head starts to criticize you. Talk over it. Tell yourself, you’re special, so special that you were even born. Pick something you’re proud of about yourself. Is your hair, cool? Do you make people laugh? Are
you adding value to your company or other people in some way? Are you a good talker? A good cook? Great at ordering? Whatever it is, focus on it until you’ve out talked the negative talk. Focus on one positive thing in your mind for at least 7 minutes.
3. Drink some cool fresh water. Most of us are dehydrated. Keep well hydrated.
4. Who do you hang out with? Are they positive or complainers? Stay away from the complainers. And of course, drop the druggies, the drinkers, people who sit around watching tv all day. Find new friends, go to the gym, to a meet up, to a free Speaker’s club, take a class, join a walking or running club, volunteer your time at a library, retirement home or pet shelter.
5. If you have it in your mind that you’re bad at something, like math or reading, go to a library and ask for a math or reading tutor. Try it at a beginner’s level. Once you’ve gotten down the basics, stop.
6. Stop worrying about what other people think of you. Most people are thinking about themselves and their own problems, not about you. When you free yourself of other people’s opinions, you’ve gotten rid of a lot of stress right there.
7. Exercise. Pet a dog, Do a Vision Board where you take a poster board and cut out pics of places you want to visit, things you want, goals, inspirational quotes and comedic quotes. Go to a Comedy. Smile.
Life is too short for stress. The truth is, what you’re stressed about doesn’t really matter in the long run. If you’re low on money, find an extra job and save until you aren’t stressed about money. Most of all, be nice to people, you never know who you may meet, could be the love of your life or the person who helps you find a job. Be kind to yourself.
