Change Your Patterns, Change Your Life
Focus on What’s Working
I have come to understand, usually the hard way, that I create most of my own stress. A bad news/good news situation!
I’d like to share the good news with you. I have pulled together an ebook of 24 of my most effective stress management tips and how to relieve stress strategies that you can implement immediately when you find yourself stressed.
What makes these stress management tips and how to relieve stress strategies different?
You will not find such a comprehensive collection of natural, simple stress management tips and how to relieve stress strategies anywhere else – online or offline. These insights are not band-aids for managing stress. Instead, they address the root of all stress – erroneous thinking – and minimize it with easy-to-use tools for inspired thinking and fresh perspectives.
My personal stress management success story
But, first let me back up and tell you a bit about how I came to really work these stress management tips and how to relieve stress strategies myself. A few weeks ago, my 13-year-old nephew, Jared commented that it seems like I’m always on vacation. Yes!!! But, it wasn’t always like that.
Two years ago, I started real estate investing what I thought would serve as a part-time, almost risk-free, fun complement to my coaching business. It would get me out of the house, away from the phone and computer and doing something else I love to do: renovate houses.
Today, I have a whole new definition for “almost risk-free.” And, a much greater respect and appreciation for the art of fix-and-flip, which involves juggling and managing many more variables than I ever imagined. I managed the fixing part on time and almost on budget. That felt miraculous. The places looked fantastic! They awaited lucky buyers. On to the flipping part. I had allowed three months to sell.
It took more than twelve.
I had never known such crushing stress. Or juggled so fast. I learned many, many new ways to get creative. Creative financing, creative leasing, creative selling, creative bill-paying, creative covering my behind! Well, in the end, I managed to sell all the properties without foreclosures, but my creative behind-covering stretched only so far. And, I declared personal bankruptcy.
In the middle of all this, I broke up with my boyfriend. Several times. Then my adopted mom, Sybil, died unexpectedly. Then, I met a wonderful new man. Five months later, he dumped me. Ah, not so wonderful after all!
Thank goodness I’m a professional life coach and that I rely on the weekly stress management support of two coaches myself. I simply was not willing to let this stress ruin my life. Or even my day.
I grieved for Sybil. I asked my friends and sisters for help, sometimes a lot of help. And, I used the stress management tips and how-to-relieve-stress strategies in this ebook. I slowed down. I renegotiated many commitments. Sometimes several times. I changed lots of patterns. I treated myself very gently. I chose, again and again, from confidence rather than fear. I got a ton of rest. I expected the best from people. I created a rock solid personal foundation. I transformed nasty situation after nasty situation. And, I lived from self-appreciation and gratitude.
These stress management tips work!
My friends regularly commented they couldn’t believe how well I continued to hold up. Often, I couldn’t believe it myself! But, any time something started to get to me, I took a break, chose one of these stress management tips and how to relieve stress strategies and implemented it. If it didn’t help, I chose another one.
I now offer these stress management tips to you. Please use them before things get as bad for you as they did for me! Or, if you’ve had many stressors pile up like I did, then begin applying these stress management tips immediately and diligently.
