Anxiety & Stress: What you can think to calm yourself

Here continues the first step in handling a crisis by using techniques to calm yourself down.

The previous post was about a very important thing in times of crisis – to calm down oneself by steering what you are thinking. This can be done either by creating distance or by distracting yourself from your stressful worries. This is difficult due to the inherent tendency of the brain to look for dangers and threats to ensure the survival of the body.

It is not possible to control the first thought, but you can learn to control the second thought. That is, if you enter into the thought and think further on that theme or if you postpone the thought for later.

You can do this by saying to yourself:

“I’ll think about that later…”

“Right now I got a thought that said …”

“I notice that I’m right now thinking about …”
