The fastest way to de-stress is to turn your attention to NOW. At times of high stress, our minds tend to wander into the future in thought, with a negative tone. This leads us to false predictions, such as how you’re not going to have enough time to get done what you need to, not going to have enough money, not going to land the meeting you’ve been trying to get, not going to lose weight in time for your special event, and so on.
Once you’re stressed enough that you’ve gotten in your own head with a negative undertone, the stress will simply build and it becomes SO difficult to see anything you’re thinking about in a positive light.
However, these thoughts are not TRUE, these worries are just you using your imagination to create what you don’t want, rather than what you do.
When you find yourself in this stressed state, the fastest way to de-stress is to step away from everything you’re doing and take 5 minutes to yourself to take a few deep breaths and refocus your thoughts so you can refocus your feeling.
So, step away from what you’re doing and try this little technique to instantly de-stress and change your state!
