#10: How to Turn Stress Into Excitement
How does your body feel when you are feeling stressed?
Did you know that whether stressed or excited, somehow, our body reacts in a very similar way? Except, we are feeling two opposite emotions, one makes us feel bad while the other makes us happy.
Let’s compare them here:
- When we are stressed - our heart rate goes up, breathing becomes shallower and faster, we start sweating or become really tense, and we may even begin to feel butterflies in the stomach.
- Likewise, when we are excited, our body also goes through the same motions- our heart rate goes up, our breathing becomes shallower and faster, we become a bit giddy, and we may feel butterflies in our stomach as well.
Try it out! Observe your body the next time you feel stressed, and when you feel excited.
With that being said, allow me to show you that YOU can overcome seemingly overwhelming stress with the help of your own mind.
