Creatively Removing Stress

1 2 3 4 5 6

Be of service to others, in simple ways, every day. Making a positive difference for someone else makes you feel useful and alive, and changes the world. Service opportunities are everywhere. Let go of hurt, resentment, and anger. They add stress to your life. Release yourself to relax and move on even without a solution or closure. Be mindful of your negative self-talk. The inner dialogue and daily messages you send yourself can be your worst enemy. Taking control of your mind gives you control of your life. Tune out and turn off the media. Too much of the news focuses on problems of the world. Adding those to your personal concerns can be overwhelmingly stressful. Stop being a Drama Queen or King. It looks good on t-shirts and pillows. It doesnt play well in real life. Every incident in your life is not an emergency unless you choose to make it so. Visualize yourself unplugging a cord from a plug-in. You are the cord. You dont have to keep up, react, or do anything except be when unplugged. Let go of the worlds pull. Empty your mind.

Its all about choices. You can leave life choices to others or you can make your own. Darla works with people that want to infuse their life with creativity, learn to manage stress, create balance, and share this creative energy through their life and work. For twenty years she has energized and inspired others to take charge of their lives through personal responsibility, learning real life strategies they can immediately use to create the life they want.

Build a stress-free business by doing one small thing at a time. This assures you of getting it done and establishing a firm foundation for growth. Gather information from people inside and outside your business before jumping to conclusions about their decisions. The reasons for some choices may not be apparent at first, and could make a lot of sense once you see a different perspective. Tell people you care about them. They will be a lot more inclined to contribute to your peaceful and successful life. Maintain your necessary equipment and supplies at the level that supports your daily requirements. Poorly running equipment and inadequate supplies can be a great source of stress. Make your environment enjoyable to you so you want to be there. Small and large changes can both make a huge difference in minimizing your stress levels. Start or expand a product line by creating an information product like a booklet or special report. It gives you author status, serves as a good marketing tool and revenue stream, and is much less stressful than writing an entire book.

Better Choices, Less Stress

1 2 3 4 5 6

Be kind to yourself. You have less stress, more energy, and a more positive attitude toward yourself and others when eating properly, exercising regularly, and getting proper rest. Give yourself permission to be less than perfect. Constantly expecting perfection leaves you feeling like a failure when achieving anything less, while creating selfinflicted stress. Nobody is perfect. Honor your true wants and needs. Continuously seeking to please others instead of getting your own wants and needs met says their wants and needs are more important than yours. You are equally important. Reach out for help and support. You create self-imposed stress by doing everything yourself when you need help and are afraid of burdening someone else. Give yourself the gift of reaching out. Allow others the joy of helping. Exercise your power of choice to change poor eating habits. Change behaviors when automatically eating unhealthy snack foods while watching television and stressing over weight issues. Make more time for fun, laughter, and passion. Its easy to get burdened with daily tasks and family responsibilities. Find a hobby or passion that brings joy, allows you to lose track of time, and alleviates stress.

Be in charge of your stress. You may act instead of react when you realize stress is simply change. Change signals the fight or flight response to kick in, increasing heart rate, blood pressure, mental dysfunction, irritability, and/or depression. Squelch the flight/fight response by recognizing whats pushing your buttons. Ask yourself what your stressors are, what your usual reactions are, and if you have any other reaction options. Defeat your stress reactions with a physical option: 1)Take a deep, cleansing breath; 2) Engage the mind and body cross arms and legs; 4) Get moving or grooving; 5) Do some yard-work or gardening. Engage in a creative option. Re-align your soul and connect the entire mind/body. 1) Draw or view your favorite artwork; 2) Create a poem, song, or dance; 3) Work on a craft (woodwork, needlework, etc.; 4) Rearrange your furniture. Distract your stressors using social options. Release in a healthy manner: 1) Vent with a friend; 2) Give a friend hug; 3) Write a letter describing your frustration with someone or something (you dont have to send it); 4) Go where happy people are. Calm your stressors with spiritual options. Restore balance by: 1) Reading an inspiring story/verse; 2) Creating or reading a positive, productive affirmation; 3) Meditating (pondering or praying.)

Dont Worry, Be Healthy

Terri Levine

Creating Your Life

Get organized. Make a daily, weekly and/or monthly schedule, allowing you to manage your time around projects, meetings, other activities, and doing other things you enjoy. Have a sense of humor. A good laugh relieves your stress. You may need to step back and learn to not take yourself so seriously. Ask yourself why you are doing something. Write down your wants, needs, goals, hopes, and dreams. Notice if what you are doing helps fulfill any of these. The more you understand why you do what you do the less stress you will have. Stop doing it if you cannot determine a good reason to continue. Be prepared to switch directions. Stop struggling with ideas that arent working. The struggle is often from heading down the wrong path. Breathe. Back up. Start over. The second or third idea may flow naturally and easily, saving you stress and time in the long run. Follow your bliss. Know which subjects and type of people you enjoy. Structure your life around activities you love. Joseph Campbell, a wise philosopher, advises following your bliss. The more you do that goes with your own flow, the more passion youll have for what you do.

Give up the need to be right. Proving yourself right and someone else wrong is never in your best interest. Do you want to be right or happy? Allow others to think and believe what they choose. Your opinion is simply your opinion, neither right nor wrong. Detach from toxicity. Negativity is literally toxic. You produce acid in the body each time you focus on bad things. Other peoples tale of woe can also negatively impact your body. Remove toxic people from your life. Forgive someone everyday. Forgiveness and love are the greatest powers in the Universe. Forgiveness is the way to master your physical domain, to master all of your lifes challenges. Hold onto your joy. You have a choice to accept what anyone says or does to you. The truth is what you decide it is. You are only rotten if you accept that you are rotten. Rise above any negative thoughts or feelings directed towards you. Go to bed without anger. Find a way to make peace with whatever and whomever you have to before going to bed at night. What you focus on expands. Anger produces more anger.

Ease into Relaxation

1 2 3 4 5

Let your shoulders relax when you drive. Your shoulders can unconsciously hike up to your ears, causing muscle tension and stress. Allow your shoulders to drop to a comfortable position. It may be necessary to lower your shoulders many times because they tend to creep back up from habit. Gently, firmly press your shoulders into the floor or bed while lying on your back. Your shoulders are in front of you most of the day. This causes muscle stress. Pressing your shoulders into the floor strengthens your back muscles so they complain less. Less pain equals less stress. Imagine that you are a stick of butter, soft, warm and pale. You are melting. As you melt, all of your stress melts and evaporates into nothing. Let all parts of your body move slightly with your breath, including your head and shoulders, chest and belly, arms and back. Your upper body relaxes when your whole body breathes. Deep breathing is a great de-stressor. Clean a drawer. Get lost in music you love. Have a great massage. Scrub a floor. Skip the news. Read the funnies. Learn to juggle with filmy, colorful scarves. Walk backward. Throw rocks into a pond. Focus on a flame...or a toddler. Stretch.

H.A.L.T. Set intentions each morning. Keep yourself from being too Hungry, Angry, Lonely, or Tired. Address these daily before making further decisions. Receive. Let go of giving. Giving comes naturally. Receiving kindness, gifts, compliments, wisdom, and help are acts of intimacy. Stretch yourself to receive. Be vulnerable. You are at your personal core when being vulnerable. Your authentic self is good enough. Here you find clarity, strength, peace, and your next steps. Respect the truth. There are three truths to every conversation: yours, mine, and the factual evidence based, I can prove it truth. Broaden conversations to honor all opinions as truths to consider. This limits judging from the head and prompts listening from the heart. Shift from critic to coach. Take l00% responsibility for your thoughts and actions without criticizing yourself, making excuses, or blaming yourself or others. Whats done is done. Notice your inner critic and immediately shift to your inner coach, asking what am I thankful for? and how can I make it more right the next time?

Optimize Your Ego to Minimize Your Stress

Joanie Winberg

Turn Feelings of Stress into Calmness


How do you enjoy a greater sense of peace and create new feelings of happiness in your life?

1 2 3 4 5

Be aware! Recognize the stressful situation by noticing where it is showing up in your body. It may be tension in your shoulders, neck, or stomach. Pay attention to what your body is telling you. This is your red flag. Accept the situation. It is what it is. Yes, life can be very challenging at times. You cant change what has happened. It is already history. Ask yourself if you really want to continue feeling this way. You have a choice. Remember that what you think about, you bring about! Feeling stressed probably wont make the situation better. Think about how you can help yourself feel less stressful, how you can shift your thoughts from negative to positive. Some examples are:
- Focus on what is working right in the situation - Laugh more often. Laughter will not only help you feel better, it will diffuse a stressful situation - Do an act of kindness. Notice how you feel when you do something nice for someone.

Joanie Winberg became a successful entrepreneur and business owner at the age of twenty ve.

Tell yourself that life is about the journey. It is an uphill battle when you push against the natural flow of life. Stop, take a deep breath, relax your shoulders and jaw (the 2 places where most stress is held), and just allow. The stress will then dissolve. Ask yourself, Would this matter if I were to die in five minutes? That may seem harsh, but it helps put things in perspective. Stress can be managed by controlling your thoughts. Focus on solutions, not problems. Focusing on the problems digs yourself deeper into overwhelm and frustration. Focusing on creating solutions allows the problem to rectify itself. Know your limit. Take some time beforehand to determine your breaking point. Develop a plan to reverse that path. Then, when you feel stress coming, you can bring yourself back to center before your world crashes around you. Give yourself some extra padding. You have a better foundation to live from when you are well rested and cared for. You will naturally handle stress with more ease. Make it a habit to take time to nurture and care for yourself.
