Chronic stress isn’t present in the stress itself. Chronic stress is present in the perception of the stress.
Change Your Perception
Our perceptions not any objective reality govern our emotional response and resulting behaviour.
Perceptions are based on beliefs, assumptions, values and conditioning.
We can dramatically reduce our stress by changing our distorted perceptions.
Our distorted thinking can exaggerate our perceived shortcomings.
We often paint events much worse, than they actually are by our distorted thinking, this greatly increases our stress . . . . . changing distorted perceptions . . . . is an essential stress management tool.
