The primary reason most mind-body healing processes fail to provide lasting stress relief is because they lack a full understanding of how stress works and how it’s intricately linked within the structure of our consciousness.
Eutaptics Tapping has become one of the most used stressbusting techniques of today.
Eutaptics is an actionable process that anyone can easily understand and apply to outsmart stress. The best thing about it is that it has a belief system with complete understanding on how problems are structured in our minds and lives. Robert G. Smith, the creator of Eutaptics, became one of the most sought after Life Coaches and speakers internationally as well as being recognized as one of the top most stressbusters of our time.
Today through this article we would like to share a few stressbusting tips so you can outsmart stress immediately. Not all of them are focused on using Eutaptics.
Keep your focus on things you can control
Highly stressed people are often focused on things that are beyond their control. In accepting that you can never arrange every situation according to how you want to experience it, you can feel lighter. There is no creativity in trying to control everything, you need to accept diversity. When you view everything as unpleasant your mind perceives every situation as a threat. When you do, your body automatically shifts to a state of perpetual fight-freeze-or-flight and you offer it limited time to recover.
The way to outsmart stress is to use the Eutaptics Tapping Technique, it calms the mind immediately by allowing you to perceive the situation in a different way. Because of this you will find another way out, with clarity and focus.
The best part is you stop the body from going into a stressed state the moment stress builds up and you allow it to recover quickly.
Accept things that you cannot change and allow your mind to focus on those that you can. This will allow you to creatively find ways out of any stressful situation.
Concentrate on your breathing
When you think that stress is starting to build up, one of the tricks to stop it immediately is by shifting your focus to your breathing. Chronic stress changes the way we breathe. When stressed, we tend to use our chest muscles instead of using the diaphragm, this can cause back and chest tension. This is the reason why you develop chronic pains in the neck area, back and shoulders. Furthermore, unhealthy breathing due to stress may restrict airflow and cause you to think it’s normal.
The best way to outsmart stress through breathing is by paying attention to the depth of your breath. When stress builds up, concentrate on using your diaphragm. Breath in slowly and breathe out even slower. Controlled slow-paced breathing can reduce the level of stress hormones flooding your bloodstream and reduce the heart rate and blood pressure, which are normally elevated when stressed.
Recognizing cognitive distortions
Cognitive distortions are the best source of anxiety and stress, and you do not want that. It occurs when your mind begins to try to convince you of an idea that is not true or things that do not exist. When you fail to recognize cognitive distortions, you are reinforcing the structure of negative thinking.
This is the part where Eutaptics works best, because in most cases, especially those who are experiencing Traumatic Stress Responses, it is difficult to realign cognitive thinking because all inbound situations are perceived by taking reference from a past traumatic experience.
This causes hyperawareness, hyperarousal and many other symptoms that are incapacitating.
To collapse this structure of thinking and to overcome PTSD and other Traumatic Stress Responses it is necessary to reimprint or flip memories to avoid cognitive distortions.
In cases outside PTSD the following are subtler cognitive distortions and how you can outsmart each of them immediately:
Distortion: The importance of the current situation or event is magnified.
For example: Being late and think to yourself, “This is it. I will never ever arrive on time.”
How to outsmart it: Put your experience into perspective and view the situation as a perfect learning opportunity. Always try to see each moment and event as transient – it’s not permanent.
All or nothing
Distortion: This is the idea of always trying to strive for perfection and anything that falls short of it, you immediately think of yourself as a failure.
For example: Submitting a report with a very minor error. Your mind automatically shifts to the error and you forget the entire effort you put into creating the document.
How to outsmart it: Focus on your achievements and how you excel in what you do instead of focusing on perfection.
Jumping to conclusions
Distortion: Making interpretations and convincing yourself they are valid without any actual evidence.
For example: You wake up in the morning and spill a tiny bit of coffee on the countertop. You tell yourself, “I just know this is going to be a bad day.”
How to outsmart it: One event doesn’t always have to be the basis of how your entire day should unfold. If you keep focusing on this one error, you are effectively training your mind to build a negative structure of thoughts that might become a “mental habit.” Putting a positive spin on your predictions will benefit you a lot and not seeing things from a negative point of view. For example, instead of saying you are going to have a bad day, say, “That’s a challenge, but I’m ready to overcome that.”
Momentarily walk away
Stress makes you lose mental creativity, often stress can cause people to fixate on a problem and lose all other angles in finding solutions. Not facing the situation is never an answer, that is why we suggest momentarily walking away.
You can outsmart stress better if you temporarily remove yourself from the situation and do something else. Take a short walk, go wash your face or wash your hands, take a quick shower. If you are at work, walk around the office. Whatever you choose to do for a short period of time will clear your mind and give you a better perspective. If trapped in a situation, this can give you your “aha” moment.
Break your tasks into sections
Every job comes with a list of responsibilities. Most people feel so overwhelmed that they end up stressing about their responsibilities and what lies ahead more than spending time accomplishing each task.
The way to outsmart this is to break it down into smaller tasks. The easiest way to not feeling trapped within your responsibilities at work is to start small, one small task at a time until you build momentum. When you do this, stress will disappear and you’ll be surprised at what you were able to accomplish within a short amount of time!
Act on it!
Stress is fueled more by inactivity, because you allow procrastination and focus to build on negative thoughts, more than on a sense of accomplishment.
Outsmart stress today by using Eutaptics techniques which are proven to eradicate the root cause of stress by collapsing the negative mental habits you have built within your head. Set yourself free from stress by removing the strain in your mental state resulting from previous events.
