You have three major choices.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab1\" >1. Manage your stressors</h2>\r\nThe events that trigger your stress can range from the trivial to the dramatic. They can be very minor — a hassle such as a broken shoelace, a crowded subway, or the world’s slowest check-out line. They can be more important — losing your wallet, hearing sharp words from your boss, or getting a bad haircut a week before your wedding.\r\n\r\nThe list of more serious stressors can be even more dramatic — a divorce, a serious illness, the loss of a job, or the loss of a loved one. The number of potential stressors is endless.\r\n\r\nChanging your “A” means altering, minimizing, or eliminating your potential stressors. Following are some examples of what this may look like:\r\n<table>\r\n<tbody>\r\n<tr>\r\n<th>Potential Stressor</th>\r\n<th>Modified Stressor</th>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td>A crowded commute</td>\r\n<td>Leaving home earlier or later</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td>Constant lateness</td>\r\n<td>Learning time-management skills</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td>Conflict with relatives</td>\r\n<td>Spending less time with them</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td>Anger about your golf game</td>\r\n<td>Taking some golf lessons</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td>A cluttered home</td>\r\n<td>Becoming better organized</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td>Dissatisfaction with your job</td>\r\n<td>Looking for another job</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td>High credit-card bills</td>\r\n<td>Spending less</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td>Missed deadlines</td>\r\n<td>Starting projects sooner</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td>Angst about the subway</td>\r\n<td>Taking the bus</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n</tbody>\r\n</table>\r\n \r\n\r\nYou might be saying, “Give me a break! What planet does this guy live on? I <i>can’t</i><b><i> </i></b>quit my job! I <i>have</i> to see my annoying relatives!” And in many cases you’re right. Often you can’t change the world or even what goes on in your own house. You want to change what other people think or do? Good luck!\r\n\r\nBut you <i>can</i> sometimes minimize or even eliminate a potential stressor. This ability is strengthened if you have the relevant skills. Changing your world isn’t always possible, but when it is, it’s often the fastest route to stress relief.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >2. Change your thoughts</h2>\r\nEven if you can’t significantly change the situations and events that are triggering your stress, you <i>can</i> change the way you perceive them. What happens at “B” — your beliefs, thoughts, perceptions, and interpretations — is critical in determining how much stress you feel. Whenever you perceive a situation or event as overwhelming or beyond your control, or whenever you think you can’t cope, you experience stress.\r\n\r\nYou may find that much, if not most, of your stress is self-induced, and you can learn to see things differently. So, if you’re waiting in a long line, perhaps you’re thinking, “I just can’t stand this! I hate waiting! Why can’t they figure out a better way of doing this? I hate lines! I hate lines! I hate lines!”\r\n\r\nChances are, you’re creating more than a little stress for yourself. On the other hand, if you’re thinking, “Perfect! Now I have time to read these fascinating articles on alien babies and celebrity cellulite in the <i>National Tattler</i>,” you’re feeling much less stress. Your thinking plays a larger role than you may believe in creating your stress.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab3\" >3. Manage your stress responses</h2>\r\nEven if you can’t eliminate a potential stressor and can’t change the way you view that situation, you can still manage your stress by mastering other skills. You can change the way you respond to stress. You can learn how to relax your body and quiet your mind. You can learn how to reverse the stress response — how to turn off your stress and recover a sense of calm.","description":"This three-pronged model of dealing with stress provides you with a useful tool to help you understand the many ways you can manage and control your stress.

They can be very minor — a hassle such as a broken shoelace, a crowded subway, or the world’s slowest check-out line. They can be more important — losing your wallet, hearing sharp words from your boss, or getting a bad haircut a week before your wedding.\r\n\r\nThe list of more serious stressors can be even more dramatic — a divorce, a serious illness, the loss of a job, or the loss of a loved one. The number of potential stressors is endless.\r\n\r\nChanging your “A” means altering, minimizing, or eliminating your potential stressors. Following are some examples of what this may look like:\r\n<table>\r\n<tbody>\r\n<tr>\r\n<th>Potential Stressor</th>\r\n<th>Modified Stressor</th>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td>A crowded commute</td>\r\n<td>Leaving home earlier or later</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td>Constant lateness</td>\r\n<td>Learning time-management skills</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td>Conflict with relatives</td>\r\n<td>Spending less time with them</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td>Anger about your golf game</td>\r\n<td>Taking some golf lessons</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td>A cluttered home</td>\r\n<td>Becoming better organized</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td>Dissatisfaction with your job</td>\r\n<td>Looking for another job</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td>High credit-card bills</td>\r\n<td>Spending less</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td>Missed deadlines</td>\r\n<td>Starting projects sooner</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n<tr>\r\n<td>Angst about the subway</td>\r\n<td>Taking the bus</td>\r\n</tr>\r\n</tbody>\r\n</table>\r\n \r\n\r\nYou might be saying, “Give me a break! What planet does this guy live on? I <i>can’t</i><b><i> </i></b>quit my job! I <i>have</i> to see my annoying relatives!” And in many cases you’re right. Often you can’t change the world or even what goes on in your own house. You want to change what other people think or do? Good luck!\r\n\r\nBut you <i>can</i> sometimes minimize or even eliminate a potential stressor. This ability is strengthened if you have the relevant skills. Changing your world isn’t always possible, but when it is, it’s often the fastest route to stress relief.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab2\" >2. Change your thoughts</h2>\r\nEven if you can’t significantly change the situations and events that are triggering your stress, you <i>can</i> change the way you perceive them. What happens at “B” — your beliefs, thoughts, perceptions, and interpretations — is critical in determining how much stress you feel. Whenever you perceive a situation or event as overwhelming or beyond your control, or whenever you think you can’t cope, you experience stress.\r\n\r\nYou may find that much, if not most, of your stress is self-induced, and you can learn to see things differently. So, if you’re waiting in a long line, perhaps you’re thinking, “I just can’t stand this! I hate waiting! Why can’t they figure out a better way of doing this? I hate lines! I hate lines! I hate lines!”\r\n\r\nChances are, you’re creating more than a little stress for yourself. On the other hand, if you’re thinking, “Perfect! Now I have time to read these fascinating articles on alien babies and celebrity cellulite in the <i>National Tattler</i>,” you’re feeling much less stress. Your thinking plays a larger role than you may believe in creating your stress.\r\n<h2 id=\"tab3\" >3. Manage your stress responses</h2>\r\nEven if you can’t eliminate a potential stressor and can’t change the way you view that situation, you can still manage your stress by mastering other skills. You can change the way you respond to stress. You can learn how to relax your body and quiet your mind. You can learn how to reverse the stress response — how to turn off your stress and recover a sense of calm.","blurb":"","authors":[{"authorId":9640,"name":"Allen Elkin","slug":"allen-elkin","description":" <p><b>Allen Elkin</b>, PhD, is a clinical psychologist and the director of The Stress Management &amp; Counseling Center in New York City.

By using these methods on a regular basis you can catch your stress early — before it has a chance to turn into something painful or worrisome.\r\n\r\nTake a look at these surefire strategies to help you nip that stress in the bud:\r\n<ul class=\"level-one\">\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Breathe.</b> A day at work is usually a day filled with problems, pressures, and demands, with little time to think about relaxation skills. Your stress builds, and much of that stress takes the form of tension in your muscles. Drain that tension before it becomes more of a problem by trying some relaxed breathing.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Move around:</b> Get up and walk away from your desk — get some coffee or water, make copies. Walk around a lot, and at lunch be sure to get out of the office and take a quick stroll.</p>\r\n<p class=\"child-para\">Stand up some of the time you’re on the phone. And if you have a cordless model, walk around. This gives your body a chance to use different sets of muscles and interrupts any buildup of tension.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Stretch and reach for the sky: </b>For many of you, your days are characterized by long periods of sitting at a desk or stuck in a cramped work area, punctuated only by trips to the coffee or copy machine. Other folks are on their feet all day. In either case, stretching is a great way of releasing any tension that has accumulated in your muscles.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Soothe yourself with sound:</b> If you can orchestrate it, listening to calming music at your work site can unruffle your feathers. A radio, tape or CD player, and some appropriate music can be very relaxing. Classical music, especially Bach and Mozart, works nicely. If these composers are too highbrow, try one of the “lite” radio stations. Just keep the volume down, or use a headset.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Lighten up:</b> The right lighting in your workspace can reduce eyestrain and make your environment a more pleasant place to work. Go for soft and indirect lighting. Just make sure you have enough light.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Create visual resting spots:</b> Give your eyes — and your mind — a break with photos, artwork, or a plant. At regular intervals, look away from your computer screen or paperwork and focus on a distant object to “stretch your eyes.” You can also create visual relief to your office by adding a few interesting objects. For example:</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Organize your desk:</b> How can a neater desk reduce stress? Well, because the source of many types of stress comes from a feeling of being out of control, of being overwhelmed. When your work area looks like a battlefield, you feel the tension growing. And when you can’t find that report you need, your stress level soars even higher. By organizing your files and piles, you get a sense (perhaps mistakenly) that there is some order in all the chaos.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Become EC (ergonomically correct): </b>Your desk or workspace can cause stress for other reasons besides disorganization. The problem is, your body was not designed to sit and work in one place for long periods of time. When you sit in a stationary position for long periods of time, your muscle groups contract. The blood flow to these muscles may become reduced, resulting in oxygen-deprived muscles. This can lead to pain, strain, muscle aches, and fatigue.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Nourish your body (and spirit): </b>What goes into your mouth from 9 to 5 (or from 8 to 7) can make a big difference in your stress level. Eating the wrong foods, or even eating the right foods, but in the wrong amounts, and/or at the wrong times can make it harder for you to cope with the stress in your life.</p>\r\n<p class=\"child-para Remember\">When you eat poorly, your body doesn’t work as efficiently as it should. This means that you’re not in the best position to handle all the pressures and demands you must face at work.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Work it out:</b> If you can swing it, one of the better things to do on your lunch break is to hit the gym or health club. Many clubs and gyms are conveniently located near work sites. A number of exercise facilities may even offer you a corporate discount for joining. Better yet, many companies and organizations have workout facilities right on their premises. Work up a sweat, take a shower, and then have a quick but nourishing bite to eat.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n</ul>","description":"One of the secrets of effective stress management at work is finding ways to incorporate a variety of stress-reduction techniques into your workday.

Other folks are on their feet all day. In either case, stretching is a great way of releasing any tension that has accumulated in your muscles.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Soothe yourself with sound:</b> If you can orchestrate it, listening to calming music at your work site can unruffle your feathers. A radio, tape or CD player, and some appropriate music can be very relaxing. Classical music, especially Bach and Mozart, works nicely. If these composers are too highbrow, try one of the “lite” radio stations. Just keep the volume down, or use a headset.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Lighten up:</b> The right lighting in your workspace can reduce eyestrain and make your environment a more pleasant place to work. Go for soft and indirect lighting. Just make sure you have enough light.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Create visual resting spots:</b> Give your eyes — and your mind — a break with photos, artwork, or a plant. At regular intervals, look away from your computer screen or paperwork and focus on a distant object to “stretch your eyes.” You can also create visual relief to your office by adding a few interesting objects. For example:</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Organize your desk:</b> How can a neater desk reduce stress? Well, because the source of many types of stress comes from a feeling of being out of control, of being overwhelmed. When your work area looks like a battlefield, you feel the tension growing. And when you can’t find that report you need, your stress level soars even higher. By organizing your files and piles, you get a sense (perhaps mistakenly) that there is some order in all the chaos.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Become EC (ergonomically correct): </b>Your desk or workspace can cause stress for other reasons besides disorganization. The problem is, your body was not designed to sit and work in one place for long periods of time. When you sit in a stationary position for long periods of time, your muscle groups contract. The blood flow to these muscles may become reduced, resulting in oxygen-deprived muscles. This can lead to pain, strain, muscle aches, and fatigue.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Nourish your body (and spirit): </b>What goes into your mouth from 9 to 5 (or from 8 to 7) can make a big difference in your stress level. Eating the wrong foods, or even eating the right foods, but in the wrong amounts, and/or at the wrong times can make it harder for you to cope with the stress in your life.</p>\r\n<p class=\"child-para Remember\">When you eat poorly, your body doesn’t work as efficiently as it should. This means that you’re not in the best position to handle all the pressures and demands you must face at work.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n \t<li>\r\n<p class=\"first-para\"><b>Work it out:</b> If you can swing it, one of the better things to do on your lunch break is to hit the gym or health club. Many clubs and gyms are conveniently located near work sites. A number of exercise facilities may even offer you a corporate discount for joining. Better yet, many companies and organizations have workout facilities right on their premises. Work up a sweat, take a shower, and then have a quick but nourishing bite to eat.</p>\r\n</li>\r\n</ul>","blurb":"","authors":[],"primaryCategoryTaxonomy":{"categoryId":34050,"title":"Stress","slug":"stress","_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/categories/34050"}},"secondaryCategoryTaxonomy":{"categoryId":0,"title":null,"slug":null,"_links":null},"tertiaryCategoryTaxonomy":{"categoryId":0,"title":null,"slug":null,"_links":null},"trendingArticles":null,"inThisArticle":[],"relatedArticles":{"fromBook":[{"articleId":209958,"title":"Reduce Stress and Anxiety: A Guided Relaxation Exercise","slug":"reduce-stress-and-anxiety-a-guided-relaxation-exercise","categoryList":["body-mind-spirit","emotional-health-psychology","emotional-health","stress"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/209958"}},{"articleId":209957,"title":"Cope with Stress by Having a Talk with Yourself","slug":"cope-with-stress-by-having-a-talk-with-yourself","categoryList":["body-mind-spirit","emotional-health-psychology","emotional-health","stress"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/209957"}},{"articleId":207983,"title":"Stress Management For Dummies Cheat Sheet","slug":"stress-management-for-dummies-cheat-sheet","categoryList":["body-mind-spirit","emotional-health-psychology","emotional-health","stress"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/207983"}},{"articleId":204505,"title":"10 Super-Stressful Jobs","slug":"10-super-stressful-jobs","categoryList":["body-mind-spirit","emotional-health-psychology","emotional-health","stress"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/204505"}},{"articleId":167340,"title":"Thinking Errors Equal Self-Imposed Stress","slug":"thinking-errors-equal-self-imposed-stress","categoryList":["body-mind-spirit","emotional-health-psychology","emotional-health","stress"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/167340"}}],"fromCategory":[{"articleId":284925,"title":"The 6 Pillars of Resilience","slug":"the-6-pillars-of-resilience","categoryList":["body-mind-spirit","emotional-health-psychology","emotional-health","stress"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/284925"}},{"articleId":284920,"title":"What Resilience Is Not","slug":"what-resilience-is-not","categoryList":["body-mind-spirit","emotional-health-psychology","emotional-health","stress"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/284920"}},{"articleId":284915,"title":"What Determines Resilience?","slug":"what-determines-resilience","categoryList":["body-mind-spirit","emotional-health-psychology","emotional-health","stress"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/284915"}},{"articleId":283125,"title":"Resilience For Dummies Cheat Sheet","slug":"resilience-for-dummies-cheat-sheet","categoryList":["body-mind-spirit","emotional-health-psychology","emotional-health","stress"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/283125"}},{"articleId":209958,"title":"Reduce Stress and Anxiety: A Guided Relaxation Exercise","slug":"reduce-stress-and-anxiety-a-guided-relaxation-exercise","categoryList":["body-mind-spirit","emotional-health-psychology","emotional-health","stress"],"_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/articles/209958"}}]},"hasRelatedBookFromSearch":false,"relatedBook":{"bookId":282611,"slug":"stress-management-for-dummies-2nd-edition","isbn":"9781118523926","categoryList":["body-mind-spirit","emotional-health-psychology","emotional-health","stress"],"amazon":{"default":"//www.amazon.com/gp/product/111852392X/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=wiley01-20","ca":"//www.amazon.ca/gp/product/111852392X/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=wiley01-20","indigo_ca":"//www.tkqlhce.com/click-9208661-13710633?url=//www.chapters.indigo.ca/en-ca/books/product/111852392X-item.html&cjsku=978111945484","gb":"//www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/111852392X/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=wiley01-20","de":"//www.amazon.de/gp/product/111852392X/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=wiley01-20"},"image":{"src":"//coursofppt.com/wp-content/uploads/stress-management-for-dummies-2nd-edition-cover-9781118523926-201x255.jpg","width":201,"height":255},"title":"Stress Management For Dummies","testBankPinActivationLink":"","bookOutOfPrint":false,"authorsInfo":"<p><b data-author-id=\"9640\">Allen Elkin</b>, PhD, is a clinical psychologist and the director of The Stress Management &amp; Counseling Center in New York City.

Imagine that. You&#8217;ll probably feel better if you can release that stress-producing thought and replace it with a relaxing, calm image. Here&#8217;s how to put your mind at ease:</p>\n<ol class=\"level-one\">\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\">Find a place where you won&#8217;t be disturbed for a few minutes and get comfortable, either sitting in a favorite chair or lying down.</p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\">Think of an image — a place, a scene, a memory — that relaxes you.</p>\n<p class=\"child-para\">Use all your senses to bring that imagined scene to life. Ask yourself: What can I see? What can I hear? What can I smell? What can I feel? What can I taste?</p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\">Let yourself become completely immersed in your image, allowing it to relax you completely.</p>\n<p class=\"child-para\">Use your breathing as a tool to help you deepen your relaxation. Simply breathe more slowly and more deeply.</p>\n</li>\n</ol>\n"},{"title":"How to control stress through tensing and relaxing your muscles","thumb":null,"image":null,"content":"<p>Looking for a way to control stress? Progressive relaxation, which involves systematically tensing and relaxing your muscles, is a healthful way to release muscle tension and a proven approach to a more relaxed, less stressful state. Follow these steps for a calmer, more collected you:</p>\n<ol class=\"level-one\">\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\">Lie down or sit, as comfortably as you can, and close your eyes.</p>\n<p class=\"child-para\">Find a quiet, dimly lit place that gives you some privacy, at least for a while.</p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\">Tense the muscles of a particular body part.</p>\n<p class=\"child-para\">Begin by simply making a fist. As you clench your fist, notice the tension and strain in your hand and forearm. Without releasing that tension, bend your right arm and flex your biceps, making a muscle the way you might to impress the kids in the schoolyard.</p>\n<p class=\"child-para\">Don&#8217;t strain yourself in any of these muscle-tensing maneuvers; don&#8217;t overdo<br />\nit. When you tense a muscle group, don&#8217;t tense as hard as you can. Tense about three-quarters of what you can do. If you feel pain or soreness, ease up on the tension, and if you still hurt, defer your practice till another time.</p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\">Hold the tension in the body part for about seven seconds.</p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\">Let go of the tension quickly, letting the muscles go limp.</p>\n<p class=\"child-para\">Notice the difference in how your hand and arm feel. Notice the difference between sensations of tension and relaxation. Let these feelings of relaxation deepen for about 30 seconds.</p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\">Repeat Steps 1 through 4, using the same muscle group.</p>\n</li>\n<li>\n<p class=\"first-para\">Move to another muscle group.</p>\n<p class=\"child-para\">Simply repeat Steps 1 through 4, substituting a different muscle group each time. Continue with your left hand and arm, and then work your way through other major muscle groups.</p>\n</li>\n</ol>\n"}],"videoInfo":{"videoId":null,"name":null,"accountId":null,"playerId":null,"thumbnailUrl":null,"description":null,"uploadDate":null}},"sponsorship":{"sponsorshipPage":false,"backgroundImage":{"src":null,"width":0,"height":0},"brandingLine":"","brandingLink":"","brandingLogo":{"src":null,"width":0,"height":0},"sponsorAd":"","sponsorEbookTitle":"","sponsorEbookLink":"","sponsorEbookImage":{"src":null,"width":0,"height":0}},"primaryLearningPath":"Solve","lifeExpectancy":"Five years","lifeExpectancySetFrom":"2023-04-12T00:00:00+00:00","dummiesForKids":"no","sponsoredContent":"no","adInfo":"","adPairKey":[]},"status":"publish","visibility":"public","articleId":207983},{"headers":{"creationTime":"2017-03-28T14:35:16+00:00","modifiedTime":"2023-04-01T18:23:09+00:00","timestamp":"2023-09-14T18:19:33+00:00"},"data":{"breadcrumbs":[{"name":"Body, Mind, & Spirit","_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/categories/34038"},"slug":"body-mind-spirit","categoryId":34038},{"name":"Emotional Health & Psychology","_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/categories/34039"},"slug":"emotional-health-psychology","categoryId":34039},{"name":"Emotional Health","_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/categories/34040"},"slug":"emotional-health","categoryId":34040},{"name":"Stress","_links":{"self":"//dummies-api.coursofppt.com/v2/categories/34050"},"slug":"stress","categoryId":34050}],"title":"Cope with Stress by Having a Talk with Yourself","strippedTitle":"cope with stress by having a talk with yourself","slug":"cope-with-stress-by-having-a-talk-with-yourself","canonicalUrl":"","快速搜字段擎改进":{"metaDescription":"Listen to this guided meditation and master the art of talking to yourself, an often underrated practice but an excellent way to de-stress.","noIndex":0,"noFollow":0},"content":"<div class=\"x2 x2-top\">\r\n\r\n<div class=\"video-player-organism\"></div>\r\n\r\n</div>\r\nWhen you find yourself in a stressful situation, having a simple dialog with yourself can de-escalate the situation, take away your anxiety and stress, and help you cope.
