Stress Relief Expert Lauren E Miller Shares Top Three Things to Know Before Stressing Out.
“According to The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health stress and anxiety is estimated to affect well over 19 million Americans and growing.”
“We all know that stress causes dis-ease in the body. I know because I went through divorce and cancer at the same time. In less than two years I experienced a divorce, a double mastectomy, 16 chemos, 6 weeks of daily radiation, 12 surgeries (due to third degree burns on my front they had to graft my back on to my front) along with an additional year of chemo. I am a mother of three beautiful children and I have recently remarried a man who I had a crush on in college. He never married and we were reunited a few years ago. We had a big fat Greek wedding and as my children embraced him on that day they said, ‘You not only get our mom you get all of us too.’ I have been blessed in countless ways and thank God I am in a position to reach my hand back into the storms of life and help guide others through life’s challenging opportunities back to their ability to expand their perceptions of life and step into healing.” Says Miller.
“Believe it or not your stress flows directly from your thought life. Any time you perceive a situation as a potential threat to your safety or connection with others your stress hormone begins to soar. Your thoughts form your choices, how you respond to the world around you. Your choices form your life. If you focus on one thing this month may it be your thought life.” Says Lauren E Miller ( author of the recently released International Best Seller: 99 Things You Wish You Knew Before Stressing Out!
“You walk around your days missing vital pieces of information that you delete or distort because they do not fit with the structure of reality you have created for yourself throughout your lifetime. The problem comes when you think these impoverished views of reality are real representations of life. For example if you have created a structure that is based on this belief: “Nothing ever works out for me!” then know that you will tune into everything that backs that belief up. Your thoughts create what you tune into so choose wisely. You are not a victim in this process unless you choose to be. There is actually a part of your brain that tunes into what you focus on in life: The reticular activating system (RAS) is located in the brain stem and plays a major role in behavioral motivation. It is very empowering to know that you can choose how you want to view circumstances in life: as a burden to be endured or an opportunity for learning and growth.”
Lauren recommends taking to heart Henry Ford’s famous quote: “Whether you think that you can, or that you can't, you are usually right.”
Lauren offers 3 tips to get some relief from stress:
• Practice acuity. Start to observe those statements or responses to life that perhaps are impoverished and do not serve your sense of well being and inner peace. Become curious as to what pieces of information you might be deleting that if recovered would help to expand your options in life. The more options you can create, the less stress you will experience.
• Remove universal quantifiers in life, they will keep you stressed out and stuck in a set belief system that does not flow with the growth of life around you: Nothing ever works out for me; nobody cares; everyone is against me; I never get noticed or appreciated; everyone gets acknowledged over me.
• Use your RAS (reticular activating system) to help you tune into the positive in life. Focus on what is working out for you, what is beautiful, good, right and true in this world. You are in charge of your thoughts, your thoughts are not in charge of you. Seek out positive connections with those around you. Gratitude along with consistent sincerity and reverence for all of life will guide you back to inner peace every time you choose them over fear, doubt and worry.
