Coping With Stress and Self-Esteem


Raising self-esteem is one of the most common stress issues that we face when discovering how to cope with stress effectively. Your self-esteem and your self-confidence are directly related, yet they are independent issues. From self-esteem challenges, you might find a need for a different approach to stress management, so below you’ll find 3 tips that will help you.

Do you remember the first encounters you had with self-esteem issues?

For example, I remember when I was a teenager, I really suffered a lot from lack of self-esteem issues. I would avoid dates and such to the point that I would feel sick to my stomach just thinking about talking with “potential dates” or going out in social gatherings. I was extremely introverted and rather quiet when it came to socializing.

I was also embarrassed about nearly everything including my height, my weight, my skin and even my voice, which caused me to avoid all possible contact with the opposite sex. Can you remember any self-esteem issues like that?

Having a family with a strong bond was really helpful. I remember my older brother telling me that he also had self-esteem issues and had also gone through embarrassment concerning the opposite sex when he was my age. No matter how alone you might feel, you’re never the only one going through these types of issues.

Self-Esteem in Men and Women

In this respect, there is no difference between males and females because we all need to practice new ways to cope with stress of this nature. One of the greatest tools I’ve discovered is to stay positive and employ laughter therapy because it goes a long way in keeping your positive energy up to par.

Positive thinking to solve self-confidence and self-esteem issues in men and women can go a long way. When you maintain a positive attitude, you can achieve greater results in anything from work, studies, family relations, to even personal relationships.

How To Let Your Mind Tools Help You With Your Self-Esteem



Here Are 3 Tips To Help You Enhance Your Self-Esteem

how to cope with stress and self-esteem imageLet Go of Your Inner Critic and Focus on Your Qualities

I had to stop thinking of what was wrong with me and focus on what is good that made me stand out. I found out that I can shine my best when I engage in sports; I excelled in swimming so I decided to focus my positive energy to improve my craft. Soon enough, I was able to build my confidence enough to meet new friends who frequent the pool, who were also athletic types, like me.

Let A Positive Outlook Be Your Best Friend

Make each day a new day to build your new inner self-confidence and to discover and affirm new positive things about yourself. When I slowly began to enjoy school because of my new self-esteem from sports, I then let that positive energy dwell in other areas of my life. I started thinking about what else I could do to make school life better instead of wallowing in pity.

I have learned that when a person feels positive on the inside, it instantly reveals itself on the outside. If you attach yourself to one really good thing about yourself, you can let that positive energy spread to enhance other areas of your life, with effectiveness and ease.

Keep Good Company

When we surround ourselves with negative thoughts and energy, we tend to feel down as well. This is one of the major reasons why stress management techniques are so vitally important.

When is the last time you did a spring cleaning of the company you keep?
There is no time like the present to take a good inventory of the people you spend your time with.
Let the April showers shower the negative people out of your regular routine so that you can be sure to have May flowers in full blossom.

Breaking free from my usual company made me feel much better about myself, so look for some ways to create more private time that you spend getting to know and cultivate your new inner self more. Embrace your capacity to smile more and laugh more and soon you will find yourself feeling better about yourself and the world around you, as well.

These types of techniques not only enhance your self-esteem, but they also make stress management much easier to accomplish by placing you in the right mindset to overcome any challenge!

Here’s to your self-esteem success!

How To Cope With Stress Concerning Change


When coping with stress, one of the biggest difficulties we face with the decision making process is always going to be centered around change. No matter where we are or what we do, change is going to be an inevitable fact about life. Yet and still, I don’t know about you, but I tend to have a great aversion towards change.

At times, even something as simple as having to change your regular route because of construction can be enough to challenge your sense of peace and well being, especially if you’re pressed for time. Not to mention changes in appointment schedules which, with one swoop, can set into motion a type of domino effect for all consecutive appointments. Change, even the slightest, can strike suspense, mystery, confusion, doubt and fear.

We, as humans, are habitual creatures. We like the fact that we can perform certain tasks like making breakfast in the morning or driving to work, without having to think about them. Besides, who really wants to rethink simple mundane, monotonous tasks, much less the big tasks that some changes bring?

How To Reprogram Your Mind To Accept Change

First of, let me start off by congratulating you! If you’re reading this now, chances are, you’ve already survived change in your life many, many times, so kudos to you for that! If you’re facing new changes in your life at the present moment, let me start off by encouraging you.

Coping with stress and change imageThe fact that you have already survived the challenges of past changes in your life is your proof positive that you can and you will, survive any current challenge of change you may be facing. Fuel yourself with the enormous positive energy of the changes that you have already overcome so that you begin to gain new belief systems about your capacity to overcome today’s challenge of change, as well.

This case study: a formula for success details how you can do this with ease, comfort and pleasure.

Another good thing to keep in mind is the fact that change does not have to be a bad thing. When you embrace change with a healthy positive attitude, you find yourself gaining advatnages, benefits and personal development skills that dramatically improve the quality of your life.

So exactly how do you cope with stress and change so that your decision making process comes from a place inside of you that is the opposite of doubt, fear and confusion?

Here are a few helpful strategies that are your best assets for facing change:


1. Believe you can cope with stress effectively

As you’ve already read here at Laughs Heal in the past, your inner belief systems are fundamental in determining how you relate to the world around you. Use the process of change to enhance and strengthen  your inner belief systems so that you gain these reinforced advantages, as well.

You get the upper hand when you practice the use of positive words applied in a powerful method called positive self-talk.

These are tools to lift up your vision and belief sytems by helping you to know that you are coping with change and stress effectively.

2. Read inspirational stories to empower your decision making process

No matter what changes you face, there are bound to be inspirational stories about others who have overcome the same difficulties and challenges that you face. Immerse yourself in their real life facts of how they overcame adversity and know that they are proof positive that you can too.

The nice thing about reading inspirational strories is that they also give your inner belief systems a nice boost and they keep your mind focused on the countless opportunities of what you can do to overcome the stress of change.

3. Use the 1 action verb to help you embrace change

As you’re going through the exercises outlined in “The 1 Action Verb To Get You From Stressed To Refreshed”, you will be putting into powerful action the 1 greatest muscle and tool you have: Your Mind Tools.

You will also begin to notice a strange coincidence: almost everything that you gather from your life in order to complete those exercises, are things which were born out of change.

These are the concrete reasons why you need not doubt your decision making process. It’s human nature to question if our decisions are sound when going through the decision making process, but in order to cope with stress effectively, it’s also important to silence your inner critic and begin to trust yourself and your capacities.

The 1 action verb is a great vehicle to render that journey smooth, easy and placid.

4. Let creative visualization help you

Creative Visualization
Gives You The Power
To Paint The Picture
Of Your Best Life
Experience

Once you’ve gotten rid of the negative connotations that might have been present concerning any change you face, you are ready to start with a fresh and clean slate.

Like a painters begin their artwork on a clean canvas, let creative visualization help you to paint a beautifully fulfilling and satisfying picture of your life throughout the process of change.

There may be things about your change that you don’t have power over, but even if “construction has blocked your regular route” you’re still the person driving the car.

By placing these ideas into action in your life surrounding any challenges of change, you are bound to go through the decision making process with less stress and when you practice coping with stress using tools that give you positive energy, you are bound to face changes in life with victory!

Here’s to you getting great results with change!
