Are you able to manage your reaction to stress-or do you get debilitated to one degree or another?
If you periodically have difficulty managing your stress, you’re not alone! You may think that it is your fault–bit it isn’t!
Who trained you in proper stress management? Most answer
that questions with a resounding- no one!
Why would we think that we can handle this complicated subject alone? Why?
We were taught, or shown, how to handle lots of things; eating,
drinking from a straw, cooking a pop-tart, walking, toilet training, rules of
games, manners, school projects, reading, writing, building a fire, and more! But nobody taught us how to manage stress-because
they didn’t know either!
What if a resourceful group of professionals figured out an
innovative, and successful, way to teach you how to manage stress? Man, how
fast would you sign up to take that training? Would you find value in being a
happier and more productive human?
In this technological world, even a comprehensive stress
management program can be streamlined for ease of access and use. Such a
program, Stress Intelligence™ training is just an app away.
Don’t get me wrong, anything this powerful is
knowledge-based learning and, if you put in the effort to gain the knowledge, you
will reap lifelong benefits!
Ritemind Stress Less Workshops is here to offer stress
management training that is accessible to everyone. Yes, there is a better life
for the taking.
Why not just go ahead and take it!
Bad Habits Affect Your Life
Bad habits can be irritating to us or others, but they can also be stressful. Many bad habits can interfere with physical health, emotional well being and mental alertness. To be at your best, to combat the stressors that are with you daily, you must get a grip on your bad habits; they are the stressors that just aren’t necessary!
Direct Bad Habits
You know things like… smoking, overeating, one too many glasses of wine at happy hour. When we put strain on our mind and body directly by these habits your stress level will increase.
Indirect Bad Habits
Hating yourself for smoking those cancer sticks, having that hangover, or thinking about what you may have said at that late happy hour, can add to your frustration and low self-esteem in your life the next day or beyond. Indirectly, your bad habit is causing your mind and body stress.
Combination of Bad Habits
A bad habit is a habit that makes you less healthy or less happy. Let’s take smoking. The act of smoking, the ill physical feeling you get from smoking including the rush, the inability to quit (again) and the regret of starting another day with a new pack is stressful. In truth, the habit controls you and that lowers your self esteem, and being in that endless situation, causes stress.
What bad habits are you aware of that could go?
If you think you don’t have any, ask a friend to remind you of them! There are many ways to take on habit breaking; smoke cessation clinics, wellness coaches, 12-step groups, really any support you can find. Managing your stress first can clear your mind to tackle the habits you would like to break.
You can do it!
