How to Reduce Stress
Stress saps energy.
Learn how to reduce stress and watch your energy soar again.
Step one involves recognising your negative self talk.
Yes that’s the chatterbox in your mind that magnifies the negative aspects of a situation and leaves no room for anything positive. Your chatterbox tells you to take everything personally and lets you believe that people do not like you or you are not good enough.
Shut the Chatterbox up!
Fear is ever present in your mind and the chatterbox tells you the outcome will surely be the worst. This makes it hard to appreciate your own efforts and achievements.
You can learn how to reduce stress by recognising the negative self talk and changing it.
It’s like putting the driver
at the other end of the train!
There are many ways to reduce stress. This one will not make you optimistic and carefree overnight but you will feel the difference as soon as you begin to change your thoughts.
It’s really quite easy, just check up on yourself during the day and if the chatterbox is at it again, change the thought.
Put a positive spin on it…
- I have never done this before… Its a new opportunity
- I can’t do that… I am going to try.
- This is too complicated… I’ll look at another angle.
- I am too old for that… Maybe my experience is valuable.
- No one stays in touch… I can get some communication going.
- That will be too expensive… lets look at ways to do it cheaper

The late Lynne Grabhorn wrote in her book Excuse Me, Your Life is Waiting about the power of positive feelings..
“Then follow your joy!
Go smell more roses, watch more sunsets, find more grass to walk barefoot on, visit more favourite restaurants, laugh more, find more places to explore, go to more ball games or plays, indulge in more hobbies, be more spontaneous, play more golf, listen to more music, find more places to skinny dip, smile more, have more fun!”
This book is an oldie that I read years ago but I still go back for a fun refresher occasionally!
An excellent method of reducing stress and shaking off these negative thoughts is to take a walk A little exercise and some fresh air can work like magic on your mood. Sometimes
