Face Life’s Stressors Head On
Life is full of stressors, and it’s impossible to avoid all of them. There’s no need to. Stress isn’t always harmful, and we can even change our attitudes about stress. For those stressors you can’t avoid, remind yourself that everyone has stress — there’s no reason to think it’s all on you. And chances are, you’re stronger than you might think you are. Instead of letting yourself get overwhelmed, try to address the stressor head-on. This might mean initiating an uncomfortable conversation or putting in some extra work, but the sooner you confront it, the sooner the pit in your stomach may start to shrink.
Note: Oftentimes when we face a stressful situation part of our stress comes from within. We set a fixed outcome in our mind as the only possible good outcome. When we become fixated on a single outcome, we lose the opportunity to see other, and often better outcomes. Stay open to different, yet viable outcomes, as you confront any stressful situation.
Very important. 🙂
