There are three unhealthy behaviours that fuel stress. These behaviours can hinder your enjoyment of life. They can cause problems in your relationships at home and at work. And they can keep you up at night.
Unhealthy Behaviour #1 – Obsessive Negativity
Negativity thinking is the tendency to be negative about people, places, situations and events in your life.
Here are some of the examples of the way people display obsessive negativity:
- Taking Ownership of Events – assuming that if something goes wrong, it’s their fault
- Wearing Blinders – choosing to see only the bad side and not even trying to look at the good
- No shade of Grey – everything is either black and white with nothing in between
- Chicken Little Thinking – expecting the worst to happen
Unhealthy Behaviour #2 – Perfectionism
Perfectionism is the tendency to expect everything to be “just so” to the point of fuelling stress.
Perfectionists let the perfect be the enemy of the good enough and sometimes never finish a project, because they just want to do a bit more.
This perfectionism can also cause havoc in relationships because they expect their partners to do everything exactly the way they want it.
Unhealthy Behaviour #3 – Over Analyzing
If you find yourself rehashing an event over and over again, you are over analyzing and it can be hard to move on.
“Woulda, shoulda, coulda’s” can really hold you back from being happy and enjoying your life.
Over analyzing things that have already happened is not productive. It’s living in the past and it’s not a peaceful place to be.
If past actions did not produce a positive outcome, learn from the situation and resolve to do better next time. Rather than beating yourself (or someone else) up, consider it a lesson learned.
How Hypnosis Can Help Overcome the Three Unhealthy Behaviours that Fuel Stress
Do any of these behaviours sound familiar? Do you do any or all of them?
These stress causing behaviours were likely learned at a young age, probably from a parent, older sibling or other relative or maybe even a teacher.
The feelings that caused these habits are programmed in your subconscious mind.
Hypnosis is a safe, effective way of flicking the switch in the subconscious and changing this programming so that you can:
- look at things positively,
- know that things don’t have to be perfect the first time out – you can improve things later, and
- live in the present and accept that things may not have gone right the first time around, but it’s over and done with.
