It’s safe to say that life in general can be quite stressful. While a certain amount of stress is normal, too much of it can overwhelm the body and our systems, which can result in our body breaking down and feeling stuck in a fight-or-flight state.
Whether it’s parenting, relationships, or your own healing journey, here are a few tips for overcoming periods of prolonged stress so that you can get back to living life to your full potential.
Your inner dialogue matters. While negative emotions or thoughts can happen during times of stress, spiraling into constant thoughts of worst-case-scenarios can become crippling. Try to become aware of whether or not your internal dialogue is leaning negative. When you notice this, pause to breathe, listen, and replace the negativity with a positive spin.
Make self-care a priority. Take care of yourself physically by getting enough rest, practicing breathwork, eating healthy, whole foods, and exercising regularly. This will help to improve your overall energy and mood, which can make it easier to cope with stressors in your life.
Seek inspiration. Sometimes, getting through times of stress takes a little outside help. Looking for inspiration from people you admire can help you connect with how they managed to persevere and overcome their own hurdles.
The Golden Rule. Treat others the way you want to be treated. When we are kind, loving, and compassionate to others, it is more likely that they will reciprocate that back to you. Studies have linked that performing acts of kindness releases dopamine and serotonin which give you the sense of satisfaction as well as lighting up the reward center of your brain.
