Stress – A Smoking Relapse Trigger That Does Not Physically Exist!

Negative Pressure

stress and smoking relapseFor most people, stress is a negative pressure that adversely affects our day to day health and happiness.  If it builds up to intolerable levels, it can even stop us doing what we most want to do, and can also bring on all sorts of other mental instabilities, and physical sicknesses to boot.  And when Quitting Cigarettes or undertaking a Lung Detox, it can be the one factor too many that leads you to fail in reaching the goals you set out to achieve.  But what if there was a way to understand stress more clearly, and stop it having such detrimental effects on your life?  It turns out there is…

Stress – It All Starts In Your Head

Stress doesn’t physically exist.  It’s not ‘out there,’ seeping into your life with the pressures put upon you at work, or in the home, or a hundred other places.  It’s all in your head.  Truly.  Stress is YOUR reaction to pressures other’s – and even you – put on you.  Plain and simple.  Sure, the pressure comes from ‘out there’ for the most part, but the stress is all yours.

So what does this little factoid actually do to help you, you may be wondering?  The pressure is still there.  But once you realize that stress is your reaction, it means you have options.  You can learn to control your reaction to external and internal pressures.  You can take your reaction back, and use it to your advantage.

Turning Stress Into Success

Do you know the difference between the stressed out person who burns out and slips back into the smoking habit, and a person who turns that corner, changes their life for the better, becoming healthier in the mind and body?  The relapsed smoker turns pressure into stress, and reaches for that pack, that’s what.  And the other?  Well they learn how to turn that pressure into challenge, what is for many of us a negative into a positive, and achieve their goals.  That is what we all want, after all, isn’t it?

And that’s what the ‘Stress Reduction’ section of our product, ‘The Complete Lung Detoxification Guide’ Series is aimed at helping you achieve, with many ways to reduce and avoid pressure laden situations, and more great advice on turning Stress into Success.
