Darth Vader’s dirty little secrets not-so-secret about stress – Day 6

Posted By Carine Dieude, Biostress Imagery LLC, Monday, April 6, 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 6: 

When under stress our mind can play tricks on us and distort our views. In these instances our mind put a spin on the situation and we find ourselves stuck in our perception, feeling even more stressed. The most common distortions are all-or-nothing thinking, overgeneralization, mental filer, disqualifying the positive, jumping to conclusion and personalization. Find more about these cognitive distortions here 

Tip of the day: 

Stop! Whatever you are doing, just stop. When your mind is clouded by stress and anxiety there cannot be any good decision made. Out of confusion comes more confusion. You may feel pressed for action, but instead, focus on regaining your clarity of mind through meditation, sleep, walk in nature, or whatever activity breaks off with the constant overload of stimuli. 

May the Force be with you!
