|Thought You Might Find This Fun & Playful ;0)|
Hello there! How is your week so far? Mine was excellent! Life is great! Everyday is a weekend to me. I know, that probably sounds really arrogant but, if you could, wouldn't you make everyday a weekend?If you love love, the way I love love, and if you found and lived your passion and purpose, everyday would be a weekend for you too. No lie! Moving on ;0) Just in case you missed my last three posts, I wanted to give you the links because they are the ABC's of abundance. Attitude Believing Courage A positive attitude gives us peace, which is the opposite of stress and it promotes greater energy for the individual. It takes energy to relieve stress and energy increases our self-confidence, self-esteem, and self-worth, which will increase our feelings of abundance. When we believe in ourselves we eliminate doubt, fear, and worry, which are stress inducers. Believing in ourselves allows us unlimited possibilities and a more abundant life. When we have courage we can face our challenges and step out of our comfort zone. Challenges and stepping out of our comfort zone makes us or breaks us, and if we have courage, we can, and will, create an abundant life. Here is to your Abundant Life... Today! Focus on; A positive attitude. Believing in yourself. Having courage. And if you are brave enough, focus on these attributes for the next thirty, or more, days. Bug Hugs... Have fun! Be playful!

|I Can See Your Courage!!! ~giggle~ ;0)|
Hey there! Hi there! Hope you had a great weekend.Did you know that my title is, 'Stress Specialist' or 'Destress Yourself Expert', but what I really would like my title to be is, 'Courage Expert/Specialist' because I love, love, love to encourage people. When I spend time encouraging people, the only thing I am doing is persuading them to be courageous. When we have challenges, and we become stressed, we have doubt, fear, and worry. When we have doubt, fear, and worry, we start to think about the worst possible thing that could happen, and then we start to think about the steps we will have to take as we move towards what we think is the worst. If we face our challenges with courage, instead of thinking about the worst thing that could happen, we shift our thoughts to the best possible outcome, and then make decisions and move towards what we think is, and would be, the best results. That is courage, my friend. "Courage becomes a worthwhile and meaningful virtue when it is regarded not so much as a willingness to die manfully but as a determination to live decently.
Have courage my friend! When the challenge comes, remind yourself, "Courage!" When you are required to step outside of your comfort zone to move ahead, and away from your stress, say it again, "Courage!""Arise; for this matter belongeth unto thee: we also will be with thee: be of good courage, and do it." ~Ezra 10:4 DO IT! "Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord." ~Palm 27:14 "Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord." ~Psalms 31:24 More things to think about so you can destress yourself.

Hello...Today, I wanna talk a lil bout how we can destress with a positive attitude. When we have a positive attitude, we feel better about ourselves, and when we feel better about ourselves, we feel peace, which is the opposite of stress. When someone comes to me to learn how to destress for the first time, many times they say they have a positive attitude. Often times, what that means to them is when they are in front of someone, or they are having a conversation, they appear positive. Meaning, they are happy and not sad, they are grateful and not complaining, or they are pleasant and not unpleasant. If we truly have a positive attitude, we have peace within because we are having positive thoughts, which create positive feelings, and that promotes positive actions. Your thoughts, feelings, and actions are your attitude. "William James, a pioneering American psychologist and philosopher, wrote, “The greatest revolution of our generation is the discovery that human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives.”

Never was I able to measure the level of stress, or even gauge the level of stress, that has been among others until I started blogging. My blogging began in 2006, and then seriously in 2007. It wasn't until 2009 that I was able to measure how many visitors I had in a day, week, or month. The measurements were only monthly before then.
All this babbling is about stress out there in the world. What I mean is, in the summer of 2009, I had about 500 to 600 readers a month. In the winter the readers more than doubled, and that just so happens to be my busiest time of the year, destressing people. By 2010 summer, I had in a week, what I had in followers in a month from 2009 winter. In the 2010 winter, it doubled, then went back down by the end of April.
By 2011, in the summer, my visitors doubled to what I was experiencing in the busy months of the winter, and the emails doubled as well. By the winter of 2011, I was experiencing crazy, crazy amounts of readers daily.
What I am trying to explain in all of this blah blah is, I believe because of the number of visitors, and contacts I am experiencing, stress is increasing out there in the world. For a minute there, I thought things were getting better, over the holidays, because my stats dropped from December 24, 2011 to January 2, 2012, to what was high stats in the 2011 summer. But, by January 8, 2012, things got back to all time highs again.
By January 14, 2012, my post How To Destress Your Deepest Moments of Despair, was viewed 1000 times. What this means to me is, there are plenty of people out there in their deepest moments of despair.
There was a time when I responded to Critical Incidents, and taught stress prevention, intervention, and direction only to the Emergency Personnel, which included EMT's, Firefighters, Paramedics, and Police Officers. Then it expanded to Management and Administrators.
I can remember my first one on one clients that were not in the Emergency Field, they included men, who were business owners. Many of them were sent to me by their wives, and the common reaction was, "My wife sent me to see you because if I don't get a handle on my stress then she will divorce me." No lie!
Then I started teaching all kinds of individuals stress relief.
Most recently, my contacts have been people who have lost their jobs, homes, and sometimes everything they have, and sometimes even a family member.
When October & November 2011 came around, I had an unusual amount of teenagers come to me due to pressures usually at home, but not entirely.
Is the economy in America getting better? Is the economy in the World getting better? That is hard to say, but from my stand point, a whole lotta people are trying to relieve stress, that's fo sho!
This time of the year is the best time for you, and me, to relieve our stress because it is the New Year, and we can be motivated to start a new.
When people are stressed, it is caused by doubt, fear, and worry about their circumstances. When people are really stressed, they tend to focus on the worst possible outcome. They think about the worst thing that could happen, over and over, in their mind. This causes a whole lotta stress.
One of the best things we can do, when we think about the worst over and over again, is write down what we want, what we really want. Write down the best possible outcome you could have in your situation, make them goals, and focus on them. Focus on them by reading your written list everyday, and making a to do list to move forward on it. This will destress you by building faith in yourself, and making you focus on the best instead of worst.
Another great thing we can do is learn the relaxation response. The relaxation response will provide a way for you to create a habit of relaxing any time, and any where. It is a habit we can develop to replace the stress habit. When we are stressed, the stress response is activated, and if we have a wonderful habit of activating the relaxation response it can, and will, provide a place, in our mind and body, to feel safe and relaxed.
If we focus on the best possible outcome, and remain relaxed, the burden of our stress is lightened and we can easily overcome our stress, no matter what we are going through.
A great affirmation for when you have stress, you are focusing on the best outcome, and you practice the relaxation response is, "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." ~Philippians 4:13
Affirmations are just reminders, and this reminder, if you say it to yourself over and over again, will build your faith, and help you succeed. So memorize it, and say it often, especially when you feel stressed.
That's all I got. You are doing great! Keep up the excellent work! Have fun! Be playful!
Love you lots ;0)
