I have taught stress management to thousands of people, and in the formal teaching environment, I always issue a survey at the end of the class. The information in this survey has provided me with about a dozen different stressful habits that people have. I would even venture to say that these stressful habits could be classified as some of the uppermost stressful habits that people experience.
I bet you would like to know what these habits are. Well, I will tell you what they are. But, be advised that these habits are in no specific order of importance because I have not determined that just yet.
Here are some seriously stressful habits
Living life without specific goals
Having an apathetic attitude
Being stubborn and unteachable
Having a racing mind
Focusing on faults, yours as well as others
Low self-esteem, lack of faith in self and others
Getting offended frequently and easily
Lack of focus on goals- lack of focus
Believing in lousy luck and thinking life is against you.
Being too serious about life
There you have it, Elizabeth's list of stressful habits.
Look at it and just notice if you have any of these habits. Yes, they are habits.
Until the next post, don't forget to have fun and be playful!
