6 Mind Hacks That Keep Stress In Check (Really!)

“”Stress is our perception of what’s happening outside of us and the power we give it,” says Lauren E. Miller … “If you make the conscious choice and stay awake at the gate of your thoughts, then you can adjust your perception of any situation,” she says. …

“Life happens. You have a thought about it. It’s completely objective until you label it,” Miller explains. … Decide to take a moment before you judge and categorize a situation: It’s your choice to label an experience as something beneficial (because you’ll end up learning from it in the long run), or something strictly painful, that’ll only make you hurt.

Practice saying “delete” aloud. “You can actually shift your attachment, you can sever the power you’re giving to your negative thought that’s defining your reality.” …

Stop by a graveyard.

… Ask yourself, “Would I want to be worrying about this from my deathbed?” and consider the choice you would have wished you made at the end of your life. …
