Overcoming Obstacles - Deepstash

Overcoming Obstacles

The hallmark of treatment and getting over things is confronting it head-on.

Stress inoculation: we have to deal with stressful things in life to be better equipped the next time we face stress. You’ll become a stronger person if you face problems and stress.

We need to think of our brain and body signals as a tool to help us understand what’s going on in the world – and something that can be managed

Reflect on and categorize pain: is it something that is healing and leading us to get better? Or is it bad and making it worse?

Leverage pain and discomfort as an opportunity to take action.
