Studies show that the mere thought of a stressful situation or event is as severe as the actual event itself.
We fear stressful situations even if they never happen to us.
- Obsessing is a warning sign of stress. The problem may never happen but obsessing about it is getting too far ahead of solving it.
- People – especially people close to us or with whom we come in contact daily can easily transfer their anxieties to us. Stand back if you can and look from afar on who is infecting us with their stress.
- Focusing on the present is the ultimate stress buster so when you get that anxious feeling be 100% present in the now and it will aid in warding off anticipated stress.
Take control of stress by putting it in its proper place.
Looking ahead is forethought.
Anxiety about the future is fear thought.
