Darth Vader’s dirty little secrets not-so-secret about stress – Day 2

Posted By Carine Dieude, Biostress Imagery LLC, Thursday, April 2, 2015

April is Stress Awareness Month, and IT IS TIME for you to DEAL WITH your stress. Have you been seduced by the dark side of its force, pushing and pushing your way through deadlines and demands? Learn to recognize the prices you are paying for it and how to positively cope with stress, helping yourself live better.

Throughout April, I will share a daily dirty little secret about stress and a tip to banish it.

Day 2:

On Day 1 we learned how your brain responds to perceived danger i.e. stress and the changes it induces in your body to prepare you for fight or flight.  If you missed it, you can read it here. So the brain does it thing, imprisoning you in the restraining cape of anxiety, and rapidly plunging you to the dark side. But what happened to your rational thinking? Why can’t your critical mind differentiate between the battle of Endor threatening your survival (the real stuff) and the projects deadline?

Here is the dirty little secret: stress is created when there is a gap between the demand you perceived is made upon you and your ability to meet this demand. Your conscious and subconscious self-doubt and limiting beliefs are the ones actually dictating your automatic response.

Tip of the day:

Whenever you catch yourself stuck into a stress pattern, fight back Anakin Skywalker style using this tapping technique: the karate chop.

Tapping is a technique using the subtle energy channels of the body called the meridian by tapping onto parts of the body. The karate chop point is located on the soft fleshy part of the non-dominant hand, between the base of the pinky finger and the wrist (on the Small Intestine Meridian)It releases psychological reversal (feeling stuck or frozen), inability to let go, resistance to change, sorrow, feeling vulnerable, worry, obsession, compulsive behavior. It allows you to let go and move forward by connecting to the present moment.


May the Force be with you!
