🧠 Mindset and awareness MATTER more than you may think. 🧐
Your mindset around being stressed is just as influential as the actual stress you’re experiencing.
While in a stressed out, sympathetic state our decision making will be impulsive, emotional, and geared towards instant gratification. (Likely not ideal for your health goals 😬)
Let’s dive deeper:
How do you perceive stress? How do you recognize and monitor your stress levels?
Do you view the stress you’re experiencing as:
Enhancing (a challenge to overcome) Or Debilitating (problem).
When in a 🌱 growth mindset, approaching stress as a challenge you CAN and WILL overcome, the science shows you’ll have a more adaptive cortisol response.
Viewing stress more positively seems to encourage people to cope in ways that help them thrive, whether it’s tackling the source of stress, seeking social support or finding meaning in it. The ability to learn from stress is built into the basic biology of the stress response.
Taking the time to reflect and learn. Adapt, overcome and implement your intentions is key 🔑
