◆Point 1: Self-monitoring to understand yourself
The brain determines the perception of stress, so the first step is to notice what you are reacting to. From this awareness, you will be able to find a way to cope with your stress.
◆Point 2: Self-management to cope on your own
1) Increasing opportunities of coping
Coping is a deliberate method of coping with stress.
-Find coping strategies to deal with stressors. Try to have more than one coping strategy.
-If one way of coping does not work, switch to another or combine them.
Example: Usual evening drinking
1. Wash your hands, 2. Drink from your favorite glass
1. change the hand soap, 2. drink in a different glass
2) Don't get caught up in automatic thoughts
Automatic thoughts are the thoughts, images, and ways of perceiving things that pop into your head by themselves.
The way we perceive things is determined by our emotions.
-Recognize your own thinking habits
-Don't get caught up in negative thoughts
-Be flexible with how you think
