How Do You View Stress? (Part 1)

by Doc Orman, M.D.

How Do You View Stress (Part 1)This week, I’m going to reveal to you one of the biggest causes of stress, both in your own life and in our society as a whole, that most people almost never recognize.

We are so accustomed to blaming our jobs, our lack of a job, the economy, the government, our neighbors, time pressures, deadlines, demands, the behavior of other people, etc., as being the primary sources of our stress that we fail to appreciate many of the most important causes come from within us.

Internal Vs. External Causes

Internal causes are just as important (sometimes even more so) than the external causes we so easily see.  I’ve talked about these internal causes in numerous prior posts in this blog.  Some of the notable ones were:

Stress Is Not A Psychological Disorder (9/19/2011)

Obvious Vs. Non-Obvious Causes (10/17/2011)

Internal Vs. External Causes (10/21/2011)

Either-Or Thinking (1/25/2012)

But one of the biggest internal causes of stress in our lives is not a direct cause of stress itself.  It is actually a “meta-cause” in the sense that it has more to do with the way we think about stress, whenever it begins to trouble us.

How Do You Think About Stress?

I’ll bet you don’t give much attention to how you think about stress when you are desperately trying to deal with it.  But how you think about it can make all the difference in the world.

We’ve already explored a couple of choices you have when you think about stress. For example, you can choose to view stress as some type of “thing” or “condition” that actually exists, or you can decide to view it as just a word you use to stand for very specific problems in your life.  As we’ve previously seen, this is a critically important choice that can have a huge impact on your ability to deal with stress effectively.

There are other choices you have, when you are feeling stressed, that are also very important.  Can you think of what these might be?

Do you know that there is one other big choice about how to think about stress that can reduce 50% or more of the stress in your life?  As I’ve said, most people don’t even know that they have this choice, nor do they appreciate how much this lack of awareness is costing them.

In my next two posts, I’ll reveal this important choice to you and will show you why it can make an enormous difference in your life.

Its like you read my mind! You seem to know
a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a little
bit, but other than that, this is magnificent blog.
An excellent read. I’ll certainly be back.

You really make it appear really easy together with
your presentation however I find this topic to be really something that I feel I would never understand.
It kind of feels too complicated and very huge for me.
