Our Relationships With Stress

Our Relationships With Stress

Every single one of us experiences stress on a daily basis. It is the mental and emotional strain that comes from needing to resolve demanding circumstances.

We have the capability to look into the future by anticipating behaviors and studying patterns, unlike any living creature. The power to imagine entire realities is both a curse and a blessing that motivates us and makes us behave in strange ways. But, we are not doomed to be in an eternal state of constant stress.

Psychological Immunity To Stress

Since the stress that we experience is based on our own perspective of anticipating the next events, we must then understand that every time we anticipate a threatening situation the body releases stress hormones in order for us to prepare and face the threat.

However, if we believe that we have control over the threatening stimulus then we won't need to prepare the survival response that we rely on.

Regaining A Sense of Control

The most important thing when it comes to wanting to regain a sense of control within ourselves is that we must practice how to change our focus from the things we are unable to control to the ones that we can.

We have the tendency to focus on the threats and the problems that we've been given but we must remember that for the sake of our emotional wellbeing, our perception of reality is created by the focus of our attention.

The Power of Your Beliefs

Our beliefs about stress is also a factor we have to consider. Since we see stress as a negative thing that we must avoid, it's only going to continue to threaten our health instead of perceiving it as something that is a normal part of life.

If we halt from the perception of it as being abnormal and choose to see it in a different light as something that empowers us to do our best and to be our best version of ourselves.

Achieving Success with Stress

There is a way for us to be able to use stress as an element for our success. When we intentionally push ourselves outside of our comfort zone and then set days where we rest, our capacity for stress actually increases therefore future difficulties would not seem like a bother, but instead as a fun and thrilling adventure.

This then becomes what's normal to our bodies and therefore creating an environment where we experience less stress because we have control over the stressors.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
