|A significant amount
of stress can be avoided by changing the way that you think about stressors. A new
attitude is needed. No matter what happens to us we always have to think about it before
we react. An ordinary life event happens, and we tell ourselves that it is
"horrible" and "terrible" and the "worlds worst
thing." Soon, we start to feel that this is true, and threat is perceived. Stress is
being created by what we are thinking rather than what has actually happened. Adopting a
realistic attitude to life events can reduce stress. Dont make things worse than
they are. Practice developing a positive attitude and much stress can be reduced. However,
some stress will still remain.
