5 Simple keys to Managing Stress.

The effects/side effects/after effects of sexual abuse are numerous, we know that, even if we have never experienced abuse of this nature or studied it out, we can at least give mental assent to or acknowledge that it would have a profound impact. Carol Boulaware summaries the Major Long-Term Psychological Symptoms of Sexual Abuse as:

Anxiety
Panic Attacks
Low self-esteem
Stress disorders - PTSD
Personality disorders
Substance abuse
Self-abuse behaviors

Not trying to be over simplistic, but we can summaries that within a word. STRESS.

I once heard Dr John King define stress as:

Supposed
Threats to
Relationship
Enjoyment
Security
Stability

I recently read an article by the American Psychological Association, that I found very helpful, primarily due to its simplicity, it was entitled: Five Tips to Help Manage Stress

The article starts by stating:

Stress occurs when you perceive that demands placed on you — such as work, school or relationships — exceed your ability to cope. Some stress can be beneficial at times, producing a boost that provides the drive and energy to help people get through situations like exams or work deadlines. However, an extreme amount of stress can have health consequences, affecting the immune, cardiovascular and neuroendocrine and central nervous systems, and take a severe emotional toll.

It goes on and gives what the APA calls'healthy techniques'to help reduce stress in the short and long term:

TAKE a break from the stressor.It may seem difficult to move away from a big work project, a crying baby or a growing credit card bill.
EXERCISE. The research keeps growing — exercise benefits your mind just in addition to your body. We keep hearing about the long-term benefits of a regular exercise routine.
SMILE AND LAUGH.Our brains are interconnected with our emotions and facial expressions. When people are stressed, they often hold a lot of the stress in their face. So laughs or smiles can help relieve some of that tension and improve the situation.
GET SOCIAL SUPPORT. Call a friend, send an email. When you share your concerns or feelings with another person, it does help relieve stress.
MEDITATE. Meditation and mindful prayer help the mind and body to relax and focus. Mindfulness can help people see new perspectives, develop self-compassion and forgiveness. When practicing a form of mindfulness, people can release emotions that may have been causing the body physical stress. Much like exercise, research has shown that even meditating briefly can reap immediate benefits.
I encourage you to read the full article on the website.

I just finished reading an excellent piece of writing by Dr Deana Murphy from Huffington Post entitled Fire Workplace Negativity and Run a Positive Institution. Here are some highlights for you:When I worked in a corporate setting, I too experienced times when I became negative and sometimes angry under protocol. But the impact of this type of workplace culture causes a resistance to change and can swiftly narrow both productivity and profitability. A negative work culture will never give you a positive organization. Negativity can be fired.It isn't always easy managing a corporate culture. Everyone has to be on the same page otherwise there will be some toxicity, politics, inconsistencies, ego pushing and back-stabbing. I've certainly experienced my share when I worked in this kind of environment and discovered some blatant negative characteristics like these:• Verbal - sarcasms, whispering remarks, yelling, whining, gossiping.• Visual - rolling eyes, avoiding eye contact, frowning, shrugging, shutting down.• Violent - taking out their frustrations on others.• Victim - irresponsible of their own mistakes so they point fingers at others.• Vulnerable - push them too hard and they strike back.• Viewer - observing what others are doing wrong for creating an issue.• Vacater - frequently absenteeism and lateness.The article goes on to talk about Firing Negativity, the to Communicate Change and how to effectively Coach for change.Well worth the read, here is the link again.

Vaughn motivations and meditations
Art the motivator
A selfish life style
At this point in the motivators life ,
can afford to be selfish.
I can't afford not to care about the guy who has no where to live.
I can't afford not to care about the guy who has nothing to eat.
I can't afford not to have compassion for the person who's going through trials.
And like they say you can't take it with you,
And even if we could, living that kind of lifestyle,
It would all just burned up anyway.
Now get up and do something for somebody else today.
