No-Nonsense Stress Relief (Part 3)

by Doc Orman, M.D.

No-Nonsense Stress Relief Part 3This week, I’ve been focusing on how this stress relief blog differs from most other stress-relief resources you can find on the web.

In my first post this week, I pointed out this blog is different because:

 

  • It DOESN’T try to offer quick-fix tips or other simplistic to-do’s to help reduce your stress.
  • It DOESN’T encourage you to exercise, meditate, adopt daily relaxation practices, or use any other traditional stress management techniques.
  • Instead, it exposes you to common myths and misconceptions about stress while helping you to think about stress more correctly and much more powerfully.
  • It also helps you to understand why managing stress is not your best coping option.

Then, in my second post, I highlighted another way this stress relief blog is different…it encourages you to adopt a three-step method for coping with stress that is superior to stress management.  This age-old method involves identifying and then dealing with the underlying causes of your stress, rather than constantly struggling to manage just its symptoms alone.

The Problem With Identifying Causes

The biggest reason why most people find it difficult to make their stress disappear by dealing with underlying causes is because we’ve been trained, by our culture, to think about the causes of our stress incorrectly.

Mostly, we’ve been taught to focus on external causes.  You know, the things that happen to us in life, like the behavior of others, external pressures and demands, external events and circumstances we don’t like, etc.

The problem with this way of thinking is that it totally ignores all the internal causes of stress.  And internal causes are almost always involved, even when external causes appear to be primary.

One of the major purposes of this blog, and perhaps the central benefit that separates it from most other stress relief resources available today, it that it focuses on helping you improve your understanding of the internal causes of your stress.

Look back on all of the 219 posts of this blog and you will see this is true.  In one way or another, each directly or indirectly illuminates some of the internal thought patterns and behavior patterns that…in addition to external situations and events…contribute to much of the stress in our lives.

This is the type of knowledge you need in order to utilize the Ultimate Coping Method successfully.  Remember, one of the critical steps in this three-step method is accurately identifying all of the important causes of your stress, both internal and external.  If you don’t know how to identify the internal causes, which are usually hidden from view, you won’t be able to use this method successfully.

So if you keep on  following this blog on a regular basis, you’ll gain more and more insights into these internal causes and what you can do to overcome them.

If you want to see some specific examples of how to successfully utilize this  Ultimate Method to deal with some very common stress-related problems, just go to http://stressandanxietysolutions.com and you will find several excellent examples there.  Each of these very inexpensive e-books shows you exactly how to identify the most important hidden causes of the problem each book addresses. Then, it goes on to show you how to defeat these internal causes and solve these common problems in ways that most people have not been exposed to.
