Lowering the impact of a stressor
---When something (an icon) presents itself to us…it follows that the more we see it as a stressor the reaction that we have will be more stressful. The less the icon is a stressor to us…the less stress it causes.
---We see that we can apply this logic to self-acceptance. To remind us again, ‘’the more we mind how the icon impacts us the more stress it causes'':
MORE WE MIND - MORE STRESS
LESS WE MIND - LESS STRESS
---As with self-acceptance - the less that we see ourselves as flawed, the less stress we have. Our attitude to the anomaly makes all the difference. If we don’t perceive it to be a problem, than it is NOT a problem. This logic pertains to everything. It really depends on how we see things and hence our attitude to it.
---If we are stressed-out by whatever it may be that presents itself to us…than it is a stressor to us. And vice-versa…if we are NOT stressed-out by what is presenting itself to us - than our stress levels will be lower.
SELF-ACCEPTANCE (BEING AT HOME w/YOURSELF) LOWERS STRESS!
---When one is at ''HOME'' with himself, he understands the reason + value behind the difficulties he may encounter. He tends to see that there is a life lesson behind all of it.
