Today I want to talk to you about 7 keys that can help to reduce stress to a productive level, one in which it’s helpful, and not harmful.
James and Cathy have 3 kids, one of them is in high school and the others are in primary.
Cathy works part-time as a Dental Nurse, and James is a Real Estate Agent.
Some years are good for James, but this year, in particular, was really slow.
A lot of real estate agents were adopting new methods of selling, including flying drones through homes and getting nice-looking videos online…
…The kind of stuff that made people want to choose them over James to sell their houses.
Whether or not it had a real effect on sales wasn’t the point, if they chose another agent, then he’s making less commissions.
James and Cathy had a large weekly mortgage payment going out, kids were playing sports that costed money, and other agents were bragging about how well they were doing…
…Which made James go silent as he was feeling highly stressed.
It actually made him freeze up and watch TV more and do even LESS work when he needed to be at his best.
Cathy was frustrated at him because she felt he needed to be doing MORE, but in reality, James needed to do these things…
Sometimes all that you are in control of is what happens today, that NEXT STEP, and the habits you keep that inevitably lead to more positive outcomes.
For many people, overcoming stress requires a change in the lens from which they see the world.
They need to imprint those 7 keys above upon their minds. They need to flip the switch so that their mind sees the silver lining in the stressful situation so that they can not only find the right path out of it…
They can enjoy the challenge.
I highly recommend checking out ‘Wake Up Calm’ by Dr. Steve G. Jones.

This track also goes beyond helping reduce stress and promote feelings of optimism. It also helps you to sleep better, which is very helpful towards stress reduction also.
