Taking Responsibility for Managing Stress
Dear Friend of Stress Shifter,
Welcome to our Stress Shifter February Newsletter. Often we hear people saying, "Oh, I am so stressed out!" What is usually meant is that certain people, events, or circumstances caused me to get stressed. It can be easy to blame things on the outside for causing us to become stressed. It is harder though to identify the inner triggers within ourselfves that actually set off our fight and flight reactions.
When we think our stress is caused by external pressures, we tend to seek external solutions to relieve our stress. We try to avoid the people that we think stress us out, or we try to control them to make sure they don't say something or do something that would make us "stressed." These attempts at avoiding or controlling can further increase our stress reactions of fighting or flighting.
To make a significant shift in our stress level really requires taking responsibility to observe our inner stress triggers. By conducting a self-inquiry into noticing first our body sensations, then our emotions, and then our thoughts, we can gain more self-awareness of what made us feel unsafe. The stress response systems these days most often get triggered by social threats, more than physical threats. When we become mindful of our inner experience, we gain inner strength to then face the outer stressors from a new perspective and with creativity.
By owning our stress reactions, we can get our power back to make new choices. In the story of Beth below, this is a good example of how by taking responsibility for managing our stress, we can not only shift our own stress, but we can also help others around us to feel less stressed.
