Destress Yourself With Solution Focused Thinking

Greetings my friend!  I hope you are having a great day!

Are you stressed?

One of the reasons we become so stressed and overwhelmed is because we are worried about a particular problem or situation, we become obsessed about it, and we are unable to think of anything else.

There are many reasons why we do this but, instead of thinking why, we must evolve our way of thinking and become solution focused. In order to become solution focused, we must figure out the best solution and make it a goal.

When we figure out a solution and create a goal we can replace our incessant worry with solution focused behavior.

Here are three easy steps to creating a goal.

1. Decide on a solution to your problem, in other words, figure out a solution to your stress.

2. Write the solution down as a goal.

3. Focus on this goal diligently and effortlessly by replacing your obsession of worry with an obsession for this goal.

One of the greatest things that we can do for ourselves, when we become overwhelmed and stressed out, is we can focus on our goals. By focusing on our goals we create a habit of solution focus thinking rather than our focus on worry. And this, my friend, is truly destressing yourself.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to figure out solutions to your problems and turn them into goals.

Until next post, don't forget to have fun and be playful.
