Yet you can make your stress even worse
Think about this one, you may not notice this, but you already have some way to overcome your stress. Unfortunately, instead of decreasing your stress level, your “technique” is often make your stress even worse. If you want to overcome your stress, then you have to identify your bad habit in your life, which atucally is a major cause of your stress at the first place.
For example, maybe you’re smoking, drink alcohol, or consumed some drugs to calm yourself, or maybe you’re eating too much, or spending a lot of money or doing other bad habits that you thought can overcome your stress. Don’t be discouraged if you got unhealthy behavior to deal with stress. First, you need identify your behavior in order to be sensitive on what you’re doing and how to choose the right thing overcome stress, you can start change your negative behavior and make it positive.
Make your stress worse by Negative Thought
If you’re stressed, you tend to have negative thoughts in your mind that give you anxiety. This can create useless thoughts in your mind and finally it becomes bad habit that you might not realize. The problem is, the more negative thoughts that you have, the more negative feelings you get and the more stress you are.
First thing you need to do is noticing that you’re having negative thought pattern. And when you did it, you may be able to decrease your problem by noticing this useless thought.
In stress condition, you may think negatively, such as: thinking about everything in the bad way, thinking about your failure, or just seeing bad side in every situation, and losing your perspective, but actually tapi sebetulnya hal ini tidak perlu terjadi.
If you know how your stress can affects your mind and your feeling, then it’s a beginning to deal with the stress itself. Next time you feel under pressure, pay attention to the process of your thinking, see if there are any negative thought in your mind.
But what happen often is, when people under stress, they cannot differ whether their thought is negative or negative. They tend not to see the fact, they tend to believe in what they think is true, eventhough it isn’t.
Try to differ between realistic positive thought and misleading negative thought. If you dont believe in negative things that people told you, or that been written in newspaper, then why do you have to accept negativity that appear in your own mind?
Actually, you dont have change your negative thought into positive one, you just have to change it into more appropriate thought. Having positive thought sometimes can be useless and not realistic, just like negative thought. Just look for the bright side when you see all things around you messed up. You should change your negative thought into realistic one, which keep considering at the negative side, but also consider the bright side. For the example, when you’re saying this to yourself:
"They dont want me for this job, and I will never get another job"
can be replaced with
“I could get this job, but if I’m not the right person, then there will be another job out there that I can apply”
When negative thoughts appear, evaluate them carefully. Do not just take them as the fact automatically, because most of negative thoughts are not fully accurate, and even sometimes misleading and unrealistic. Whenever you get any negative thoughts, or worries, try to change it, make it rational and replace with more realistic thoughts. Ask yourself, "Am I being realistic?". When you have more positive and realistic thought, it can help to reduce your stress.
How to think properly
If there were someone who never do any mistake, I think I dont want to meet that person. It must be so boring. Everyone makes mistake. What the most interesting is, incredible people is people that use their mistake and take it as a lesson. The only way to learn your strength and weakness in by making mistake.
Negative thought can be a barrier for you when you want to reach a new goal or solve your problem. Everytime you made a mistake, your mind see it as a proof of your failure and incompetence. It’s true that failure can be destructive, but it also can help you to grow and learn about your self, and about what you want in your life and what you don not in in your life.
You can get one or more lesson from every experience, even though the experience that dissapoint you. Instead of taking your mistake as a failure, try to see it as a postponed success, that you give you a chance to learn more whenever you feel dissapointed, so that you don’t give up easily and willing to try harder.
Since the failure is a part of human life, do not let your past disappointment stop you from your success future. When you have obstacle, it doesnt mean that you’re not gonna make it through. Your failure is not the end of the world. When you see a situation with negative thought, you just add more stress and make the problem even bigger.
You need to do more “Stop and Think”
If you dont know what to do in any situation, or when in any problem, and then you have negative thought, it’s will only make your stress level increased.
If you stuck in anxiety, or doubtfullness. Stop and think about possibile solutions that you can take to help you. So when you have any problem, you can reduce your stress by doing this, you’re not gonna give up with your anxiety.
Seven Steps to Solve Your Problem.
- Find out the causes of your stress
- See if you can do something about that
- Try to solve your problem while you still get the chance.
- The next step is make a list of the method or option that you can use to solve your problem.
- Make sure that you give your self options as many as possible. The more options you got, the more your chances to choose the best solution to solve your problem.
- Find as many reason as possible why the solutions you’ve wrote are good and usable, let your ideas come out.
- Get your pen and paper, write down the positive and negative consequences you should consider from the options you’ve wrote.
Make a list of solutions as many as possible, even if it doesnt make sense. Do not make any judgement on your choices, because when you write it down, it will be easier for you to the right solution of your problem.
Think about how many ideas that reflect you really are, not based on people’s opinion, that would be the best for you.
If you consider your choices, evaluate it to see if you really want it or not. Your life will be easier when you know what you really want. You will start to do what is right for you, not what other people think what is right for you.
I recommend you to think as many solutions as possible for your problem, even if it seems not realistic. This process can help you to think lot of solutions, and stop thinking that there is no wayout for your problem.
If you already think some strategies to solve your problem, the next step is use your logic. Do not try to solve your problem with the strategy that can’t be done with your competence. We all have limitation, if you keep trying to solve your problem with the same way that been failed before, you have to change it and try to think about the better solution.
Make your decision in specific way, decide what you’re gonna do, when to do that, where to do that, who will be involved, and what is your backup plan if any mistake happen.
Make sure that you’re prepare it well, and see if it really working, evaluate and get some lessons from that experience. If your solution is working, congratulate your self. For example, maybe you got your dream job, and you want to indulge your self, think about something that you want. The important thing is to acknowledge your successes. Spend some time to think why your solution is working and what you can learn about its strengths and the weakness.
If your solution is not working, If your solutions didn’t work out, don’t torture yourself with self-doubt or anxiety . Try to think why it didn’t work. If you dont get the job that you applied for, maybe it’s because you don’t have enough experience, maybe you dont meet the requirements, or maybe you just don’t prepare it so well. Whatever your conclusion, remember to remind your self that you’re not failed. Congratulate yourself that you got courage in yourself to try. Learn as much as possible from your experience, so that you can have more better option of solutions next time you have similar problem. The more solutions you try, the more lesson you get, and the more you ready face that situation.
My purpose is not to eliminate your stress, but to eliminate your disappointment in your life, to manage and to deal with that feeling, because whatever mistakes or obstacles you have, it’s all the part of how we learn to be a better person.
The major difference of people who suceed in life and failed is, people who succeed is learning from their mistakes.
