CONQUERING STRESS WITH COURAGE, CLARITY AND CONFIDENCE
with 3 simple questions.
The holiday season is here, a time of giving, helping, sharing and getting together with family and friends. Yet, why are so many people stressed out during this time of year. Perhaps we are feeling overwhelmed with holiday preparations, the devastating effects of Hurricane Sandy or the impending fiscal cliff. If any of your loved ones are stressed you can give them the priceless gift of Peace of Mind. Dr. Balasa Prasad & Dr. Preetham Grandhi say this can be done by addressing the following three questions.
1. Why are you stressed out?
Stress is a by-product of a conflict between your emotions and the actual circumstances that you face. The stronger the conflict, the deeper the stress levels.
2. What can you do about it?
There are only two options to resolve the above mentioned conflict and neutralize stress. First, you change the situation or circumstances to your liking. However, this is easier said than done. If this is not possible, the second option is to adjust your outlook and attitude to work with the circumstances you are facing. There is no third option. Most people prefer the first option but it can be difficult to implement. The second option is relatively easy to implement but may not be to your liking.
3. How do you go about it?
Emotions resist change. Therefore you must switch your emotions with your instincts – the forgotten knight in shining armor, which operates in your best interest. Once you switch your emotional driven mindset to an instinctually driven mindset, you will be able to analyze any predicament and devise a realistic implementable solution. If all else fails your instincts will help your emotions to make the necessary adjustments to deal with the situation or circumstances. Thereby you will enjoy peace of mind.
