Reduce Your Response To Stress.

The following simple behaviors reduce our response to stress. Start by activating your 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 always win out. Make a list of silly/feel good thoughts. Rank them from 1 to 5 with 5 being the most powerful. The instance a negative thought pops into your mind. Bring up your mental list. Chose one based the strength and power needed to produce the switch. Practice using your visual mind and imagination to paint vivid images of your list. Soon the switching process is easily mastered. Another highly effective behavior is to perform simple acts of kindness. A “thank you” or “please” counts as an act of kindness. The practice of kindness will release feel good hormones into your blood stream. Become the agent of control. Use behaviors that are completely under your control and in endless supply. Now that it power. It is just that simple.
