As a result of stress, we start looking for activities that cause us to believe that our stress levels are decreasing, so we slowly become addicted to these activities, while trying to solve and reduce the stress that towers over us. Persistent stress requires constant compliance and takes away the real opportunity for sources of pleasure. These “activities” help the false belief that there can only be a little good. What do you feel during the activity: “My mental pains are easing momentarily. Stress is decreasing. I’ll be more vivid. I feel less lonely. My anxiety is decreasing. I will be at peace with myself.” But we all know that looks can be deceiving and the above are not entirely true. The e-AID program can have an impact on breaking out of the bondage of our habits by reducing stress. Less stress requires less routine activity to seemingly solve our stress problem. These activities can be: smoking, playing, shopping, alcohol, drugs, cell phones and the list is endless.
TAP (The Affirmation Portal):
Reinforcements, especially positive reinforcements that we say to ourselves can undoubtedly be used as tools for self-improvement. These affirmations can control your mind perfectly, as the more affirmations you say, the more you focus on what is really important. Affirmations range from repetition of simple positive sentences to chanting. Prayer can also be a positive confirmation.
Why use reinforcements? (Theological argument)
There is an old saying, “”Help yourself, God will help you too!””. As a result, if you get into a negative downturn, your brain also moves in that direction. You begin to waste energy to negative thoughts, which is constantly amplified by circumstances.
Why use reinforcements? (Psychological argument)
If we consciously use affirmations, we will utter them over and over again, and then hope that our subconscious will absorb this information. The conscious mind has the power of cognition, while the subconscious affects performance. And the subconscious mind works in accordance with the commands of the conscious mind.
How to do it? Develop reinforcements filled with excitement and happiness. For example, if you want to lose weight, don’t just say I’m losing 10 pounds. Say instead, “”I’m 10 pounds lighter, more energized, and this dress is simply look wonderful on me!.”” Do you see the difference?
Think about it when someone else is doing it instead of you 24/7 and it still has a positive effect on you.
