Simple Behaviors To Reduce Our Response To Stress.

The following simple behaviors help reduce our response to stress. Start by activating our natural ability to choose one thought over another. We absolutely can not hold two thoughts in our mind at the same time. For example thoughts of fear with silly/feel good thoughts. Silly/feel good thoughts win out every time. Make a list of silly/feel good thoughts. Rank them from 1 to 10 with 10 being the most powerful. Select one the instance negative thoughts pop into your mind. Use your imagination. Paint vivid visual images of silly/feel good thoughts. With a little practice the switching process is easily mastered. Another highly effective behavior is to perform uncomplicated acts of kindness. A simple “thank you” or “please” counts as an act of kindness. These simple behaviors release a steady stream of feel good hormones into our blood stream and circulatory system. Besides, are in endless supply and completely under our control. Now that it power. It is just that simple.
