What do you do when you feel anxious, fearful, angry, stressed or maybe irritated?
- Count to ten and then respond
- Take a few deep breaths
- Get away from the situation
- Just remain silent and let the situation pass
All good advice that definitely helps in RESPONDING to any situation rather than REACTING to it in the normal automated manner based on thoughts, emotions and feeling.
But the question here is, does it really help you cope with the issue, the situation, the person, or any experience on a long term basis, or is this just a quick fix for the moment?
In most schools of Psychology, the advice is always to dig deep within the issue to find the source, in which lies the reason for the issue and also the solution.
Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), is one such visualization methodology, similar to Meditation and Breathing techniques to spontaneous bring awareness to deep self -limiting beliefs and memories that traps us in automated loops of reaction to any particular stimulus from the outside. Awareness, once experienced, then results in complete freedom from emotional disturbances no matter what the trigger outside is.
