How To Destress Yourself; The First Step Cont...

From the last post, How To Destress Yourself; The First Step, you should have looked at the stressful habits, or characteristic, and determined which ones you are sustaining.  When you discover which stressful trait you are maintaining then you have begun the awareness, which is the first step to destress yourself.

So, now that you know your stressful habits what do you do with them.

Well, I will tell you.  You must learn to eliminate your stressful characteristic and replace it with the successful practice, which is the opposite behavior.

STRESSFUL HABIT VS. SUCCESSFUL PRACTICE (AKA OPPOSITE BEHAVIORS)

Angry vs Peaceful

Irritable vs Easy Going

Frustrated vs Composed

Sad vs Happy

Anxious vs Relaxed

Uptight vs Calm

Drinking vs Sober

Smoking vs Nonsmoker

Over Eating vs Eating for Energy

Reacting to situations with doubt, fear, and worry vs having confidence, faith, and hope

Being closed minded (unteachable) vs being open minded (teachable)

Being apathetic and indifferent about others and self vs being loving and caring towards others and self

Having a racing mind vs having a quiet mind

Having very negative thoughts vs having very positive thoughts

Experiencing negative emotions vs experiencing positive emotions

Being very critical vs being very complimentary

Mastering doubt vs mastering faith in life, others, and self

Getting offended easily vs being more understanding towards people's imperfections

Not intentionally setting goals vs Never Ending Goal Setting

Looking at what is wrong vs looking at what is right

Too serious about life vs having fun and being playful

Accepting illness vs eliminating illness

The awareness is knowing your stressful habits, discovering the opposite, successful behavior, and setting the goal to eliminate the bad and replace it with the good.

This is the first step to destress yourself.

I hope that this is helpful.

Have a great day and don't forget to have fun and be playful.
