            Relieve stress with positive mental



Think of this. If two different people can respond to the same situation in
two different ways, does this not suggest that there is a direct correlation
between the individual and their response?




So, why is it that one person can feel completely overwhelmed and stressed
out by a particularly situation, and another is able to respond calmly and
without anxiety?


The answer to this is in our own heads. All of us think differently and
perceive situations in different ways. For example, being made redundant
may be a disaster to one person. To another, it is an opportunity to make a
change. It is the same situation, but two different ways of looking at it.

We all have an inner voice which constantly chats away in our heads telling
us what we should do, what we shouldn’t do। It also tells us how to react.
Often this voice is self-critical. It may tell us that we look awful when we
look in the mirror or that there’s no way we’re going to pass that exam, or
the one that says: “he’s never going to look at me!”



Why do we have this voice, where does it come from, and how does it have

such an impact on our stress levels?


From the moment of birth, we are absorbing experiences and learning how
to think. When we were very young, we did not question what we are told by
our parents or teachers, even when they told us we were no good. At that age
we could not sift out what would work for us and what wouldn’t, we just
believed what we were told to be true, and these ideas, values, beliefs and
statements become our world view, whether they are negative or positive.


People who have grown up in an atmosphere of difficulty or negativity can
have a more negative way of perceiving things. If you grew up in a family
where financial loss meant constant dramatic changes, you may develop a
fear around money, so that any difficulties you have later in life may occur
to you as greater than they actually are. Or, if you were constantly told that
money was hard to come by and that you have to work hard to stay on top,
this could also develop a sense of insecurity.

Negative self talk makes things much worse। If you say to yourself that a
situation is ‘stressful’ or ‘impossible’, you will actually create stress and
feelings of inadequacy. The good news is that this kind of destructive
thinking can be changed. You need to be aware of what you are saying to
yourself and change this kind of thinking to more positive self talk, such as
describing the same situation as ‘a challenge’, which suggests that it is
solvable.


It has been scientifically proven that practising positive self talk on a regular
basis has proven benefits for stress, health and productivity.


Your subconscious mind does not differentiate between positive and
negative, or what is the truth. It will believe everything you tell it, and
respond accordingly. When you tell yourself that you can’t do something,
you subconsciously stop looking for a way to solve it.

If you need to relieve stress, try catching yourself in the act of negative
thinking, and then switch it to something more empowering। Next time you
find yourself thinking that something is too difficult, try asking yourself how

you are going to do it, instead of saying that you can’t. Asking the question,
‘how?’ opens up your mind to solutions, whereas the latter closes it down.
