Balance your Stress and Anxiety

Transformation Life Architects - Thursday, September 20, 2018
I had a client come to see me with high levels of stress and anxiety over her divorce and her ex-husband. She also said that she was very angry and prone to fits of rage over everything that had happened and could not seem to let it go.

I asked her to take a sheet of paper and write on the top, my divorce. I then asked her to write negative in the top left and positive in the top right. She was then to write one negative followed by one positive of the divorce. I asked her to repeat this for at least 30 times.

She came back to see me and said that it was a really hard exercise but had managed to do 29 positives and negatives. She said that she kept on trying to write a whole load of negatives without the positives. She also said that it really made her think about the situation and how she was viewing it. As a result of balancing her view of the divorce her stress and anxiety had dropped to acceptable levels. 

One other comment that she made was that it was so easy to see the negatives of not only the divorce but all of the other things around her.

When you look at a situation from too much of a negative or positive you create emotions such as stress and anxiety, these cloud your mind and you cannot think clearly. When you can see an equal amount of both positives and negatives you don’t have the emotions of stress and anxiety and you are able to think clearly about the situation.
