It seems that so many people are constantly stressed out. Work, kids, shopping, cooking, cleaning, not enough money and the stress goes on and on. Yet many just keep it and go on living a stressful life. Why? It might be they don’t know how to get rid of it. Maybe not enough time to get everything done. Maybe it just overwhelms them. Or they just can’t work fast enough. Or they are too tired. Or they don’t have enough money. Let’s find out some of our own reasons.

EXERCISE – Automatic Writing

  • Get a sheet of paper.
  • Next we will come up with a question to ask. Let’s start with this one: “I keep my stress because…”
  • Say Strong or Peace self hypnosis. (optional)
  • My shoulders, arms and hands are strong.
  • My chest and stomach are strong.
  • My back and legs are strong. 
  • I am strong.

Start writing down the question and keep on writing it down until an insight comes up. Write the insight down and right away start writing the question again.

  • I keep my stress because…
  • I keep my stress because…I might scream and scream.
  • I keep my stress because…
  • I keep my stress because…I am at work and have to.
  • I keep my stress because…
  • I keep my stress because…There’s nothing I can do but bear it.
  • I keep my stress because…
  • I keep my stress because…I am old and tired.
  • I keep my stress because…not enough time
  • I keep my stress because…something is scary out there.

Complete this exercise by asking “What can I do about this? Here’s some ideas.

  • I might scream and scream. If alone scream.
  • I am at work and have to. Use one of the Stress Tools here. Or figure out how you can do your task faster. Or talk to your boss.
  • There’s is nothing I can do but bear it. Realize there is something you can do. Ideas in these posts.
  • I am old and tired. Give yourself a break. You might be slower but you may know smarter ways to get it done.
  • Something is scary out there. What scares me? Do strong self hypnosis.


  1. Use a squeeze ball. My favorite
  2. See yourself getting whatever is needed done quickly and easily.
  3. Use strong or peace self hypnosis.
  4. Eat a carrot, celery or something healthy.
  5. Take a quick break.
  6. Do a peaceful visualization.
  7. Imagine a little person sweeping all the stress out of your mind.
  8. Ask: “How important is this to my overall life?”
  9. Go for a walk.
  10. Talk to someone about it.
  11. SCREAM.
  12. Give yourself a PEP talk.
  13. Say your goal in this area 3 times.
  14. Let the stress just roll over and out.
  15. Play with your dog or cat
  16. Let good memories come up
  17. Make up your own.

OTHER QUESTIONS TO ASK  Make up some of your own.

  • When did this stress start?
  • What is a trigger?
  • How bad is it at work, at home, etc.
  • Am I angry?
  • How heavy is it?
  • How do I feel about this stress?
  • How important is it to my overall life?

I hope this will help you. Stress can be hard and sometimes overwhelming. You can turn stress into relax and energy. You will then get more done and have a better day.
