Uncover And Manage Emotional Stress
Questions you can ask yourself to uncover and manage emotional stress.
1. Do I need to redefine, limit, or end a relationship connection?
| Action Tip: Write down all the interactions you have on a day-to-day basis, then ask, do I feel a sense of safety in this relationship?
2. Does my home environment encourage rest, inspiration, and creativity?
Take a look around your home and determine what you could add or do differently to create a calmer atmosphere. If you have a shared space living or dual functional spaces, create an upkeep system that keeps things in its place often so that you don’t become overwhelmed.
| Action Tip: For a quick pick-up solution, add a declutter bin to every room and begin clearing space until you feel a sense of ease. You can come back to tackle the clutter bin another time. Save this resource for tackling clutter for good.
3. Am I overwhelmed with too much information?
Think about all the ways and tools you use to absorb information. Between the news, work, school, handling personal business and even interests. Information is all around in abundance. Over time, even good information can take a toll on you. It's time to consider your source and then decide if you need to know the information right now or not.
| Action Tip: Set social media boundaries.
4. What beliefs am I holding onto about money?
How we think about money at any given time will directly impact our emotional state. It can also affect the kind of work we choose or the kind of work we have to choose or think we have to choose. Whatever the circumstances are, having a core belief around having “enough” can either empower or hinder you. Developing a new positive mentality about money is usually the first step healing any areas where the idea of money creates emotional stress.
| Action Tip: Make a list of all the things you do and put a check beside those things that you need help with, then take one thing and practice asking for help in that area.
