5 Tools To Prepare For A Stressful Situation
By: Lori Thayer
Today's article will cover how to prepare for a stressful situation. There are 5 tools I use regularly to combat stress: preparation (i.e. homework), visualization, meditation, essential oils and EFT. Watch today's video blog to learn more.
Do your homework to prepare for a stressful situation
When you know you will be entering a stressful situation the best way to defuse that stress is to do your homework. Research and preparation for the event will make it much less stressful. You will feel calm and confident that you are prepared and can handle what happens.
Visualize the upcoming situation in a positive light
Visualize the event occurring in a way that would be positive for you. Picture the event in your mind happening in the best possible way. Add every detail you can think of to make the visualization as real as possible.
Use Essential Oils to calm your self and strengthen yourself
Essential oils are a great way to manage your mood. Oils have many great properties and can boost your courage, decrease stress and calm you down. The oils I used in the video above are Valor and Tranquil. Stress-away is another roll-on that would be useful to prepare for a stressful situation. (Purchase oils here)
Meditation For Stress Relief
Meditation is a great way to reduce stress. Doing visualization while you meditate super charges your efforts. I struggled with meditating for many years. Once I began employing the Silva method for entering a meditation quickly, I began to quickly see results. If you struggle with seeing the benefits of meditation or entering a deep meditative state I strongly recommend The Silva Method.
EFT To Reduce Stress (Tapping)
EFT, the Emotional Freedom Technique, or tapping is a great way to defuse a stressful situation you are anticipating. By tapping on certain accu-pressure points and stating emotions that have a charge and are upsetting you, you can begin to release those emotions. Learn more information about tapping here.
