The Voice of Nature

The Voice of Nature

The modern man, who is no longer able to perceive the "voice of nature", not only endangers the balance of ecology in his environment, but also suffers from an increasing level of pollution within himself.

Do we want to let things take their course, do we want to expose ourselves to certain dangers in blind trust that fate will have it or that things will somehow continue - or do we want to make an effort to help ourselves?

Maximize Your Potential

Maximize Your Potential

The highest duty of a human being is to express their own self to the best of their inner abilities and to achieve a feeling of confident security. To accomplish this, we must first determine our own optimal level of stress. Only through this inventory can individuals experience joy not only in spite of stress, but even through it.

Distress = Unsatisfied vital needs or stimulation of unpleasant areas in the limbic system.

Eustress = Gratifying vital needs or stimulation of pleasurable areas in the limbic system.

Embrace Your Responsibilities

Embrace Your Responsibilities

A person is only what they make of themself. It is up to each individual to decide whether they want to be prematurely destroyed by stress through ignorance, laziness or incompetence, or whether they can tame it and make it work for them. Each individual is responsible not only for themself, but also for all those with whom they have daily contact.

A joyful approach to one's duties and responsibilities is one of the criteria of human maturity. It is a sign of childish behavior to deny one's responsibilities.

Know Thyself

Know Thyself

The more complicated and complex an organism becomes, the more complicated and complex its needs.

The more time you use meaningfully, the less energy you waste.

If you are constantly angry at yourself, if you constantly hold yourself to be not okay, then you use up too much energy and then have too little left for the actual tasks of life.

If you are constantly getting upset about other people, you regularly waste both time and energy. Regardless of whether you express your anger aggressively outwards or if you suppress it inside, anger always costs time and energy.

Exercises for distress relief

Exercises for distress relief

Live out your feelings:

Feelings burn energy, just like thoughts - except that a feeling has a higher calorific value than a thought.

If a person has learned not to show their feelings, then they are pushed more and more into the subconscious. They no longer experience them consciously. They can no longer feel them consciously. This leads to a dangerous build-up of energy. It also leads to an unrealistic view of the world, as our attitude to our environment is shaped by the feelings that dominate us.

  • Learn to recognize your own true feelings!
  • Consciously experience your emotions!

Eustress through success:

The unsuccessful person is usually not a failure because they have tried in vain to achieve success and failed, but because they have not tried at all.

Most people who achieve nothing achieve nothing because they have not striven for anything in particular!

Success does not happen by chance.

Success has to be targeted.

It doesn't have to be a Himalayan climb, you can start with the hill on your doorstep!

On Intimacy and Fear

On Intimacy and Fear

  • Intimacy: Resistance is there to be overcome. All negative programs regarding intimacy must inevitably prohibit one's own sensuality.
  • Fear: Learned fear costs strength. Reprogramming is recommended here if you are frequently confronted with the object of your fear, because the energy expenditure of reprogramming is a worthwhile investment in the future. However, reprogramming is not recommended if the fear situation occurs only occasionally. In this case, escape behavior is recommended, i.e., avoiding the situation whenever possible.

On Anger and Success

On Anger and Success

  • Anger: A lot of energy is wasted through anger. Persistent negative feelings artificially maintain the cycle of corticoid hormones. Relaxation and meditation can help as an anger-relief program if reason alone is not enough to break free from this negative feeling.
  • Success: Set clear goals. Formulate your goal clearly and precisely. Work methodically. Take notes. Develop flow charts so that you can immediately get a visual overview of chronological or organizational aspects. Analyze your own behavior in the event of failure. Find out what you can do better next time.

On Health

On Health

  • Temperature: Lowering the temperature in our living spaces to 19° C not only saves a huge amount of heating energy, but also stimulates circulation, breaks down deposits and makes us more resistant to infectious diseases.
  • Going for a walk: At least once a day you should walk briskly for a few minutes and take deep breaths.
  • Movement: Think of tricks that bring movement into work that makes you chronically immobile!
  • Take a shower: Hot/cold showers have a highly invigorating effect on the circulation. A stronger water jet gives a greater massage effect. Showering helps to re-sensitize the body.

On Human Nature

On Human Nature

  • Homo sapiens: If you now learn to find joy in interesting, fascinating and exciting thoughts, if you can create eustress through the search for knowledge, through the right questions and through thought processes, then you will be able to realize the concept of "joy through stress" even in times of loneliness!
  • Daydreaming: generates self-stimulation in the limbic system. An eustress activity that should not only be practiced by children! Especially before going to sleep, imagining planned goals helps to program the subconscious mind better and more precisely for these goals.

Writing:

Many feelings of anger, rage or fear can be "written from the heart". Sit down and begin to simply formulate your feelings and reactions. Whether in the form of a writing exercise, an essay or even a short story - writing has always proven to be a purifying factor of the very first degree. That's where the healing concept of "letters that never reached them" comes from.

Drawing can help with:

  • see the world consciously and receptively again
  • look for beauty even in everyday things
  • live consciously
  • strive to find the positive in every situation

Vacation

Vacation

For people with high stress levels, a vacation in familiar areas is recommended, otherwise they will expend too much energy on the change.

For people who score particularly low on the stress tests, a vacation where they are confronted with new things is recommended. Boredom is also a stress factor, not just the overabundance of new things.
