UPDATE November 28, 2012
A lot has changed since I wrote this in May!
I had to update!
- Did you wake up this morning with a heavy heart, a heavy sigh and an occupied mind?
- Do you find yourself most of the time physically, emotionally and financially drained?
If your answers to the questions above are YES, then you are definitely undergoing a lot of stress lately.
Stress management techniques seems to be easier said than done. However, with the proper mindset, you will find yourself gaining momentum and taking action with ease and peace of mind.
Here are some ideas to manage the causes of your stress:
1. Know your stressors!
The causes of stress for each and every person differ. You have to be honest with yourself and discover the sources of your inner chaos.
If you are often preoccupied with your problems at home, say, your children or your marriage, the first step to managing everything is to admit that there is really a problem. Denying the existence of certain issues will only tempt you to procrastinate solving them.
Maybe your children or your spouse are not the real source of stress but your lack of organizational skills.
Do you worry about not being able to spend quality time with them?
Identify what is causing you to skip family dinners and movie dates.
Is it because you are always multi-tasking? Then focus on one task at a time.
Is it because you are busy juggling three jobs? Quitting a job which you are not actually happy to have and spending quality time with your family instead might be much more valuable than the pay check it offered.
2. Choose healthier ways to adapt with stress.
When people are stressed out, they usually run to the nearest “Bad Habit Station” because they claim that bad habits make them feel better.
If you are one of those people who grab a shot of tequila or start doing unproductive activities, then you are doing it all wrong. Some people binge-eat or do not eat at all.
Do you lock yourself inside your room thinking that withdrawal from friends and family might ease your situation?
While these things temporarily manage your stress, it will have an adverse effect on you later in life and is probably effecting you adversely even now.
The best way to cope with stress is to substitute the “Bad Habit Station” with Healthy Habits!
Eat healthy, sweat it out at the gym, breathe slowly and stay calm.
3. Join forums/seminars/symposiums/
webinars on managing stress!
Sometimes, it is easier to handle difficult things when you are not alone. Many people are going through stressful times and joining them as they learn ways to handle their stress from experts who know the secrets might even help you with your present situation.
As the founder of HeartFailureSolutions.com and the ‘Life Breath Coach’, I am excited to introduce you to two AMAZING speakers!
Every coach needs a coach! In fact if your coach doesn’t have a coach, your coach isn’t practicing what he/she preaches!
I teach that Sacred Breathing can shift you into a much better bio-chemical place and therefore a MUCH better mindset!
The TallTree’s mindset coaching is ancient.
Robert and Terri get very specific and dig into pockets of emotion you didn’t even know you had.
I thought that sort of work would be very conscious, but I find that it is extremely unconscious.
Following the advice of my wise teachers, the TallTrees, I find that my thoughts, words and actions more powerfully create what I want them to.
If stress is draining you, trust the TallTrees to set you right once a week.
Their call is much like The Life Breath Club and it happens on Tuesdays.
I’ve been studying with them for several years, but I have been doing a consistent daily practice prescribed by them for the past 213 days in a row!
The Miracle MindShift Month seems too simple to be so powerful!
Since I began doing it last March SO much has changed in my life!
Relationships changed, my income increased, my vehicle was upgraded without my involvement (no kidding!), I healed some very old stuff and became more of who I am ….
If you need to heal, you need to shift your mind to a healing place.
The Miracle Mindshift Month with the TallTrees will shift you to a miraculous place quickly and efficiently!
