When you’re feeling stressed, what can you tell yourself to help you feel better? Try these quick and simple reminders:
1.This too shall pass.
Nothing is permanent. In a week, a month…this won’t even be an issue.
2. You can handle it.
Call on your track record. Look at similar things from your past, and remind yourself how you handled them.
3. You don’t have to do this alone.
Call on friends who can talk you down. You’re there for them, let them for there for you.
4. Watch your negative “mind-talk.”
If you dwell on what’s negative, you will only feel worse. If these thoughts come up, turn your attention on something else.
5. Look for the lesson.
There is a learning in everything that happens to us, the good and the bad. See what the message is here.
6. Forgive any mistakes.
No one is perfect and we all make mistakes. If you could have done better, you would have.
