Still Stressed? Are You Tracking?
Hey there, happy Monday, everybody. And welcome to another edition of solving your stress mini series. I am your host Sam, and every week we come together to discuss stress, and answer your questions that you've sent in. And we do a general overall a discussion around stress. So we're going to dive right in, because I want to ask you a question. Are you still stressed out? Does it feel like no matter what you do, you just can't get in front of your stress? Well, there are many reasons that could be, I want to focus on one really important reason. And it's another question that I'm going to pose to you. Are you consistent? Whether this is your first time joining us or, you've been with us for my gosh, we're over a year now doing this together, are you consistent? I mean, let's take a step back and look at the big picture.
If you look at the apps on your phone, if you look at, you know, the way you do banking, everything is tracked. Everything can be logged. Why? Because you want to know where you are so that you can move forward and take the next step in whatever process you're doing. Have you ever thought about looking at your apps that way? And that's what I'm going to ask you to do is if you're finding yourself still stressed out, I'm going to ask you to be consistent in the practices and I'm going to ask you to track because if you can first, be aware when the stress comes up and then second, take the steps to alleviate it and then third, track and be consistent with it. I promise you you'll be able to get ahead of your stress.
Now, this is something that was foreign to me as I was going through my PTS journey, because I didn't know about stress and the way it affected me. I mean, I knew it was there because of my line of work in law enforcement. And the one thing that I didn't connect with was, you know, just like doing reports that I had to do in my law enforcement career, I needed to do that to get better. And I started journaling and I started tracking and I realized, well, if yesterday was a crappy day, because of whatever XYZ I knew, then I could make tomorrow better because I wasn't going to repeat what I did the previous day. And that's why tracking is so important. Now you may be thinking, well, Sam, how do I track? Super easy. If you go to solveyourstress.com, and sign up for my free training where you and I are going to discuss stress for an hour and you will receive my free tracker if you sign up for my online course, it's really that easy. And what it looks like is a planner and every day in the morning, and then the evening, you're going to track what you did.
Now you're probably thinking I don't have time. Really? You're giving yourself over to stress. Do you want to continue to waste that energy to be in that stressful moment? No, I don't want you to be there. And I know you don't want you to be there. So tracking and being consistent, so super important. You want an easy way to do it. Get a journal. Get a journal, and in the morning, whenever stress comes up, whatever time of day it is, write down, what's stressing you out and in the evening, I want you to review it.
And then I want you to pick some kind of stress relief tactic that we have talked about. And if you want to know where you can find out where all of what we talked about landed, you're going to visit my blog on Samanthahorwitz.com- lots of tips, tools, and tactics to solve your stress. That's it today. It's all about consistency and tracking. You do it on the apps that you use on your phone. You do it for your banking every month. If you own a restaurant, you keep records. Heck even Olympic athletes because they've got to know what's working and not working. You go to the gym. You want to know where you're making gains or what piece of equipment's not working for you or what workout routine is not working for you. So you can be better, right?
