Hidden Benefits of Stress-Managing

By Elizabeth Bohorquez, RN, C.Ht

We all know about stress, but few work to manage it in the "moments", where it is needed most. This "moment" of stress release can also be utilized to program the mind for high level creativity & goal achievement.

Managing stress moment to moment is key in high level performance & in the attainment of optimum health. Those who manage stress well are highly rewarded in many different areas of their life. Those that don't, also reap benefits. Take some time to look around you & spot check who manages stress well & who doesn't. Look at the differences in outcomes.

Learning to "notice" & be aware are the most important tools you can acquire. The large majority of people roam the earth in a trance-like state. It is only when you wake up to what is really going on, that you can make progress on all levels. Watch out for striving & excessive efforting. These are deadly.

Develop visualization skills.

The subconscious mind does not know the difference from reality or something imagined. Use this to your advantage. Certainly be aware when your imaginings are planting negative messages ! Remember, all thoughts are chemically coded. Positive images will take you to any goal & also design the "to do" steps.

Learn to recognize the VOJ ( voice of judgement).

Practice the art of noticing in relation to all judgments. Be careful not to judge the judgment. Utilize self-hypnotic techniqu...
