“Some people suffer in silence louder than others.”
More often than not, many people do spend undue time in the circles of emotional distress by choice.
The choice may or may not be a conscious one.
The resulting personal turmoil expenditure endangers every single part of our well being.
The price tag itself is obviously the highest one of all the payments
we can make in life – the currency of the limited time that we have here.
Don’t get me wrong here, though. There is also something called “The Courses of Adversity”.
They give us the chance of getting beyond the ordinary. While reaching beyond the usual and
graduating in good standing from the quests, we receive awards of priceless perceptions and awareness.
On the other hand, “perpetual stress and tension” is hardly a sign of lifetime awards.
When we experience stress day in and day out, would it be worth noticing and examining
the possibility that something is keeping us away from the more effortless way of life?
Let’s take a look at 3 Tricky Traps of Stress and how to outsmart them even if you think
you are close to a nervous breakdown. There is such a thing as stress relief and it is
closer to you than you may think or imagine right now.
“I am handling stress very well!” – Perpetually.
That’s a very popular phrase nowadays. Have you been saying it lately
with a tinge of defensiveness in your voice?
Have others been giving you clues that the opposite is what’s really happening?
Do you brave heading to burn out and is it worth it?
Is it the time for you to discover new awareness skills of “mastering life”
instead of forever looking for “ways to relieve stress”?
It’s all possible just for the asking.
That’s just how you can start. If you need a helping hand with this,
ask those you trust directly, “What’s one single thing you see or feel
I can change about myself that will help me decrease the level of stress I have been experiencing?”
Looking for answers “out there” instead of asking the right questions “within”.
When you get into the habit of asking yourself the right questions, your mind has a duty
to supply you with the answers that are right for you.
Take a look; a few examples for you:
What is an excellent question example that I need to ask right now?
What is the right answer to that question?
How is this article beneficial for me?
What else is happening?
What else do I need to notice?
What else about my life do I need to improve?
The solutions to your stress-creating problems will start to pour from within you …
if you are willing to simply listen.
One way to do it is by adopting quieting techniques into your daily schedule while trusting the new process.
Wishful Thinking – “If I ignore stress, it will go away!”
The fact is it will never leave you, if you think someone else or a miracle is going to be the fix.
Moreover, it will cling on and on the more you choose to respond to it the same way
you’ve always been. Your choice of response to stress is what gives it life … or not.
On a helpful note, keep in mind that stressful circumstances are NOT absolute facts.
You do have the power to train your brain (about anything) in a way that serves you
rather than enslaves you. Focusing the power of your mental attention to
what IS going right and what you DO want as reality in you life will,
over time, produce a magnificent and life-changing obsession of creating a lifetime in superior flow :).
