With all the political rhetoric continuing after these elections, Donald Trump, Kanye West, mass shootings, bomb threats, it’s easy to be stressed out.
But it is very important to manage your stress and find positive ways of releasing the tension without picking up bad habits like drinking, smoking or being promiscuous, which are all kind of fun, but don’t yield any good results.
Here are some tips to make it through the political and Holiday season courtesy of Dr. Bradley Nelson.
Strive For A State Of Acceptance And Understanding Of Others, Despite Their Negative Behavior Or Difficult Nature.
If there’s someone who has hurt you or wronged you in some way, and you haven’t forgiven them, your stress level will inevitably be greater than it should. The higher path of the spirit is to be at peace with the universe and with all our fellow beings. None of us are perfect and we all have reasons for acting the way we do. Learn to let things go and be generous and kind.
Don’t Forget To Go Easy On Yourself Too!
How many times have you chastised yourself for making a poor decision, lashing out at others, being clumsy, or running late for a meeting? Most mistakes we make won’t affect us in the long run. In fact, by recognizing the value in our own folly, we can learn some of life’s most valuable lessons!
Choose Positive Emotions
You are the pilot of your own course in life, and you can choose to make intelligent and balanced decisions. When you find yourself automatically being guided toward the emotion of anger, for example, wait a few seconds and ask yourself if it would better serve you to change course. The ability to choose more positive emotions is something all of us have, but it’s like a muscle that needs regular exercise in order to serve us best. When you focus on flexing this muscle, you will learn to become more patient and your emotions will enhance your life instead of controlling it. This can also help you maintain healthy boundaries with yourself and others.
Make Only The Commitments You Know You Can Keep Without Stressing Yourself Out
Learn how to say no when you’re uncomfortable. Respect your time, energy, and resources. Take care of your physical needs by getting enough rest and proper fuel.
Release Emotional Baggage
People can free themselves of a major underlying cause of anxiety, depression, panic attacks, phobias, and other forms of mental illness by learning to release trapped emotions. This can lower your stress level by quickly getting clear to the underlying causes of negative emotional choices and nagging, negative thoughts.”
