3 Steps to Less Stress

There’s no denying workloads and pressures can be difficult. But there are ways you can train your mind to minimise the stress, tackle a bad situation and move on.

In this video I explain a three step process that will help you change the way you think about things… and help you get control of your stress.

Hello, I’m The Stress Master, 

My name is Ches Moulton.

It isn’t about recounting your childhood during countless hours of therapy or telling yourself “it’s all in your head.”

There are simple techniques that can help your brain rewire itself so you can function at your best. It simply requires you to alter your thought patterns, to distinguish between the practical and the psychological.

For example, you fail to reach an important deadline. The first thought that might cross your mind is, “I’m going to lose the deal.” But are you really? 

This line of thinking may lead you into a deep, dark hole of negativity, which is totally unnecessary.

Your negative reaction may be turning an actual problem into something even bigger.

Accept what happened and focus on what can be done to mitigate the consequences,

It’s all about perspective.

Changing the way you think can help you with a lot more than stress and anxiety.

What you think and How you think it has an enormous impact on the level of stress you experience.

Over time…implement these 3 steps…change your thinking process and change you level of stress.

Step 1.  Analyse your behaviour in a random situation to confirm whether it was counterproductive.

Imagine you didn’t receive the credit you deserved for a project in which you were involved. You became unmotivated. It may jeopardise your chance to get another assignment. Being able to tell yourself that’s what happened, is the first step.

Step 2. Understand what caused you to behave the way you did.

This is about identifying a set of deeply held beliefs that influence your more superficial thoughts and emotions. You might have a deeply held assumption that life is not fair and  no matter how hard you try, you will never get ahead.”

If that’s the principle that organises your thoughts, no wonder you became unmotivated.

Step 3.  Identify how your mind is mangling reality, something called “cognitive distortions.”

These can be things like a tendency to turn every bad situation into a catastrophe, zeroing in on the negatives and jumping to conclusions without paying attention to the positives.

Everyone displays a few cognitive distortions, but we can strive to think differently. Eventually, this will lead our brains to dig new neuropathways, until the new way of thinking becomes natural and automatic, resulting in lower and more manageable levels of stress.
