How’s Your Stress? Be Flexible

It is helpful to realise that there are always different perspectives on a situation – different ways to see things.

Being stuck in particular thought patterns tends limit options and feelings of freedom and choice, and often prevents solutions being found to challenges.

Acceptance, tolerance, and patience are immensely useful attitudes to develop where possible, especially if you are prone to react quickly and emotionally to threats. Many threats exist only in the mind – imagining the ‘worst scenario’. Being more trusting and giving situations time to become clear, will help to reduce the number of false alarms, which otherwise take up a lot of emotional reserve quite unnecessarily.

Saving yourself for the battles which really matter, and not bothering about things until/unless they actually become a real problem, will also improve your position, reputation and strength for those few occasions when you really need to make a stand.
