If you’re gona make a change, you’re gonna have to operate from a new belief that says life happens not TO me, but FOR me. ~ Tony Robbins
The next time you feel any negative emotion (overwhelmed, depressed, irritated, impatient, or hopeless), list the specific thoughts that went through your mind just before you felt that emotion. This is the first step in recovering from your stress.
By identifying the thoughts you are able to examine them and determine if the stressor is a perceived problem or a real one. Once you have identified negative thoughts, the next step is to examine them for reasonableness. Ask yourself to what extent the thoughts are valid. Take the time to look for both evidence that supports and evidence that refutes the thoughts. Writing down the evidence you find helps you gain distance from your thoughts and makes them less self-evident.
My book has checklists and action plans for stress mastery but you can make your own and keep track of what you are doing to better your physical health, and thereby reduce your stress levels.
