How Do I Destress Myself?

Hello there my dear friend.

How do I destress myself is the question I'd like to answer this day.

How are you doing?

Ever hoping and praying that you are destressed.

Last night I spoke with a person who was overwhelmed. This person was really having a bad day, and worked him/herself into a hot stressed out mood.

Looking from the outside in, the situation was not really as bad as the person was making it but, as human beings we tend to self-talk ourselves into catastrophe when it really isn't so bad. What I mean is, sometimes, as humans, we act like someone is going to die when the situation really isn't that serious.

The reason I am saying this is because I use to do it, and I see it happen all the time. People running around in circles in their mind, and verbally as though it's the end of the world when no one is dying or is going to die.

Why do we do it?

We do it because it is a habit, and like I wrote in my last post, Wanting More From Life, we sometimes don't know our own authority and power to govern the mood, and words of our mind.

What I mean by that is, we can consciously sooth our self, and make it a habit, just as we unconsciously work our selves up into a frenzy over no thing.

A really good way to destress is to consciously focus on encouraging the self, and soothing the self into a better mood.

I discovered this for myself when I was a young EMT (Emergency Medical Technician). When I responded to 911 emergency calls, I could, and would sooth anyone on scene, and later learned I developed a really good habit that I used on myself. This habit of soothing myself replaced the all too often freak out factor I learned from my human conditioning.

The best way to calm yourself on a regular basis is through meditation, and a reminder.

You can create a reminder by repeating to yourself your desired outcome, for example, "I'm alright, and I'm doing really, really, really good!" It sounds silly, yes? But that reminder, any reminder, can, and will help a person calm themselves especially if they have a habit of freaking out over little things.

Try it, you won't be sorry. But don't just try it, make it a habit, and it will help with calming, and building confidence, which is the opposite of stress, which is most often displayed via anger, anxiety, and depression.

That's all I got...

A simple way to change a stressful habit.

Have a wonderful week my friend.

God bless you...
