How I Let Go Of Stress Overnight
If we want to fully let go of the endless negative chatter in your head, try following the techniques prescribed in the book – The Myth Of Stress.
The technique used in this book is called Active insight. Active insight is about changing your beliefs that drive emotions and behaviour. Changing these beliefs brings a peace and clarity to your mind enabling you to move onto bigger and better things.
Is 100% of our stress internal? Do we create 100% of our stress? Yes.
This isn’t a technique that allows you to temporarily escape stress, it addresses it at the root cause.
Here is an example of an exercise I have performed.
A stressful thought that continuously pops up for me is “I should weigh less”
To rid myself of this silly stressful belief and to accept myself I insert the following
“In reality I should not weigh less at this time because …
“In reality I should not weigh less at this time because I am not exercising daily”.
“In reality I should not weigh less at this time because I eat more than my body needs”
“In reality I should not weigh less at this time because I’m over 30 years old and as we get older we put on weight”
“In reality I should not weigh less at this time because I drink alcohol which is empty calories”
Now I don’t go around with the vague stress belief that I should weigh less. I’ve accepted the reality as to why I don’t weigh less. I’ve accepted my life and how I got here.
Now I’m ready to move on and change instead of letting this little thought stress me almost every day.
I have insight into my biggest cause of stress. That insight was my vague belief.
