From Stressed to Relaxed in Seconds
There are times in our lives that we become overwhelmed by the things that seem to stress us out and without realizing it we then begin to focus on the negatives. When we focus on the negatives, we feel our heart beat a little harder, our breath become a little shorter, and we might even feel like we cannot catch our breath.
Well, it is time to learn how to regain co
ntrol of our thoughts and our physical responses to stress.
When you notice a stressful thought coming into your mind, close your eyes, take a deep breath, and then allow a new thought to surface. Think for a moment of the one person or thing, which brings you peace, joy, love, and laughter. When you have the thought of that person or thing that brings you those “good” feelings and thoughts, focus. Focus on that person or thing. Focus on all of those good feelings. Really connect with those good feelings.
R E M E M B E R:
Two feelings of the opposite nature cannot inhabit your being at the same time.
So, when you focus on that “good” feeling/thought, you instantly connect to the emotion of that and your energy will shift and the negatives will be erased in that moment. Your heartbeat, breath, and thoughts, will become steady and calm and you will have overcome those things which bring you negative thoughts, feelings, or emotions. This process takes only seconds, not minutes, but seconds.
Learning to refocus our thoughts and feelings is something that everyone can do, if only we would. It’s a choice. Choose those good feelings/thoughts over the negative ones and you will begin to realize that you are thinking more often than not, on the positives.
So, today, give yourself permission to release that which no longer serves your highest good and embrace all that brings you into a place of PEACE.
