Interrupt the permanent loop in the brain
Overcoming, illness, a sudden professional change, lasting noise, the crisis in the partnership: There are numerous external and internal influences that put your thoughts and emotions in high tension.
This is why it is important to interrupt the self-destructive permanent loops in the brain, which are only about the problem and generate further fears. In her book, Christy Matta presents numerous practical exercises for a new approach to the world.
Stress through personal processing patterns
Because regardless of whether you can influence the causes or not: to stress these are only through your personal processing patterns. Stress affects your feelings and your thinking.
In her book “Active Against Stress”, the American Christy Matta illuminates the most common stressors and explains their effects on feelings, perception and body.
Theory and practice
Matta uses current research findings for her anti-stress counselor. But the focus of the book is on the many exercises that help you deal with your stressors more constructively, openly and healthier.
At the beginning is the recognition and acceptance. Those who can name and (initially) accept burdensome influences create the prerequisites to protect themselves against the destructive consequences.
Allow is the first step
Matta has put together a variety of mindfulness exercises to help you get a grip on nervousness and tension in everyday work.
However, in more detail, she devotes herself to the great crises of life (denunciation, separation, death) and shows you how to gradually restore your emotional stability.
Learning to deal with stress (new)
Above all, it is about interrupting the self-destructive, permanent loops in the brain, which alone turn around the problem and generate further fears. Matta teaches you to abandon old thinking patterns and to develop new perspectives even in crises.
You will not completely remove or avoid the stress. However, you can devalue it and counteract it acutely if "everything becomes too much again".
Matta wrote her book especially for people for whom stress is not an annoying, temporary burden, but determines everyday life and sets the quality of life to "0".
Here you will find very good answers to the questions “why” and “where”,
