Is your work stressful?
We do get a newspaper delivered to our home, but I don’t look at it. Michael likes the feel of paper, the tactile experience of reading a newspaper. I get my news on the internet. Which seems easier to me, more immediate, and doesn’t feed the landfill.
Here’s an article I read today which I’d like to share with you. It’s good advice. It’s about how to stay sane in a stressful work environment. (I’ve had plenty of those over the years, when I worked for other people before I found my life’s calling.) Here’s the article, on yahoo: Seven Tips to Stay Sane at Work.
In a nutshell, it’s telling you to adopt specific FEELINGS which assist you in maintaining sanity in the face of stress: calm, humor, dissassociation (feeling separate), empathy, positivity. Good feelings. Wonderful ADVICE. But HOW to DO all that? How to create and capture states of mind/body in yourself and use them when you’re not feeling them?
That’s where hypnosis and NLP shine! Because it’s absolutely true. Changing how you feel changes how you think and how you experience life, how you interact with others, and what you do behaviorally. We can all change our lives by feeling how we find it useful to feel. That’s NLP’s bread and butter. It’s called anchoring. Finding the positive state in yourself, growing and expanding it, and then capturing for future use.
The article doesn’t tell you HOW to feel calm. I can. How to maintain calm when Joe at work is doing his best to get under your skin. I can. We’ll set you those stimulus responses in your body so that they flow automatically. Where stress used to trigger negative emotions, it won’t. This is what I do. And I love it.
If you’ve got stress, and want to FEEL differently, like this article advises, but haven’t a clue how to DO that…let me help. And remember, Michael and I are offering an event just for stress release on December 10th called “Banish Holiday Stress.” You’ll learn anchoring, and more. More info is here:
