The first crucial step in overcoming stress is to cultivate awareness of its presence in your life.
Awareness plays a significant role in alleviating stress by allowing you to recognize certain mental patterns that contribute to stress or intensify your reaction to it. These mental patterns are known as mind traps, which are common habits that tend to worsen stress and pain.
Once you become aware of these traps, you can more effectively avoid falling into them. One particularly significant mind trap is Negative Self-Talk.
Self-talk refers to the way you naturally speak to yourself and encompasses your habitual thought patterns and automatic interpretations of events. Unfortunately, this internal dialogue often tends to be negative and self-critical.
It is no secret that we are often our own harshest critics. After making a mistake or experiencing regret, it is common to have thoughts like “I’m such an idiot” or “I’m worthless,” and in some instances, even thoughts like “I’m stupid and I hate myself.”
When feelings of stress, overwhelm, or burden arise, they can act as glasses that distort reality and make everything seem worse than it truly is. This negative self-talk exacerbates inner fears and leads to increased worry, anxiety, and stress.
Next, I want to share a few strategies that can help you release stress. As I go through this list, I want you to focus on the steps you can implement to reduce stress in your life.
Some common stress relief activities include:
Consider which of these steps you will incorporate to reduce stress in your life and make a note of them in your workbook for this module.
Remember, attempting to avoid negativity or stress often leads to more of it. It is only when you become aware of your stress and implement the steps discussed in this module that you can effectively navigate through it.
The objective is not to eliminate stress entirely but to equip yourself with clear steps to manage and cope with it.
