Reframing Stress

Reframing and leveraging stress is simple, that is after you get past all the tricky parts.

Put simply, stress is a feeling. A feeling is an emotion. And emotions are our body’s natural biochemical response to something we perceive about an experience.

For example, imagine you’re on a plane and there’s some sudden turbulence followed by a strange noise. Then picture yourself in that situation.

Now, if you were actually on the plane, that feeling you would get is your body’s biochemical response to the perception of risk. That biochemical response is designed to physically prepare you to take action. It’s intended by nature to serve you. You may have felt a little hint of it just by imagining yourself on that plane. So here’s one of the ways it gets tricky. You weren’t on the plane. It was just a thought. The biochemical response was triggered by the thought, more specifically the perception of the thought.

Quick footnote, this also applies to each of your hot buttons.

So the true source of stress is your reaction to a thought. And that could be just a memory. But the point is that perception is something you can manage at will. With surprisingly little training and some practice, you can shift your perceptions so that stress is only there when it serves you and in a way that serves you.

This is a quick glimpse at just one of the foundations of human behavior that you will learn about in our workshops and programs.

Imagine having the tools at hand to choose when and how you allow stress to affect you. Think about the power that would give you, being in control of your stress, and of your hot buttons.

Now imagine being in an environment where everyone had that same power. Imagine the difference that shared power would make in your daily life.
