“There is more to life than increasing its speed.” ~ Mohandas K. Gandhi
Do you find yourself rushing through life so much you forget to stop and smell the flowers? When we do that, we tend to stress more, enjoy less, and possibly put ourselves at risk for burnout. Whenever you recognize that you are upset and thinking negatively, use the quick reference guide of questions to challenge that negative thinking that we discussed in Stress Mastery Rx #11 here.
Once we recognize the distortions in our beliefs and thoughts, we can dispute or challenge them which then greatly diminishes the consequences.
The A-B-C-D-E Model
Activating event (Stress) → Beliefs (thoughts) about the event → Consequent emotions and behaviors → Disputing thoughts → Energized, revitalized emotions.
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.
