Control Your Response To Stress….

The following simple behaviors reprogram 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. 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 list in your minds eye. Chose one based on the strength needed to produce the switch. Use your visual mind and imagination to paint vivid images of your list. With practice the switching process is easily mastered. Another highly effective behavior are simple acts of kindness. A “thank you” or “please” counts as an act of kindness. The practice of kindness releases feel good hormones into your blood stream. Become the agent of control. Practice behaviors that are under your control and endless supply. Now that it power. It is just that simple.
